17 of the best flower delivery services in London

A pioneer in letterbox flower delivery, this popular online florist manages to fit stormy blooms into incredibly compact packages. The flowers arrive all “asleep”, wearing cute little hair nets to protect them, and straighten up once in the water. They have a reliable and reasonably priced selection of pleasing letterbox mixes or for something more elaborate there are larger hand tied seasonal bouquets. If sending flowers alone isn’t enough, be sure to opt for Florist’s Choice as they donate 15% of profits to Carers Trust for every sale.

Arena Flowers, online only

Billing itself as the number one ethical florist in the UK, this thoughtful growing business not only plants a tree for every bouquet purchased, but it uses no single-use plastic and is striving to become carbon neutral this year . A delightful selection of letterboxes is on offer, as well as more voluptuous, hand-tied luxury bouquets. But if you want really treat someone (or yourself) to a subscription that offers a bumper crop of whatever is in season that month. Each box is a surprise (unless you check online, but where’s the fun) and is enough to fill several vases. They also offer a pet-friendly subscription that eschews potentially poisonous strains, though these tend to be slightly less vibrant.
