Review: This woman found the perfect way to buy beautiful flowers at an affordable price

Last summer we upsized our house to accommodate the growing chaos that comes with having 3 sons all under the age of 12. Having previously lived in a very cosy basement flat, we didn’t have much in the way of decoration to fill the additional rooms our new place boasts. My mother helpfully suggested that the best way to brighten up our rooms and make them look a little more homely was to buy flowers.

We have two supermarkets near us, so we started to buy flowers from them on a regular basis. Unfortunately, we found the quality to be really low and flowers would often die within just a few days. On top of that, we quickly got bored of the limited supermarket choices. My husband suggested we try a florist and so we found a lovely local lady who supplied flowers of a much higher quality. Whilst they were beautiful, it’s something we absolutely couldn’t afford. Shopping around at a few florists we soon realised that you pay a serious premium for the pleasure of a more tailored experience.

Slightly disheartened, I was complaining about my dilemma to my new neighbour who I’d noticed always had beautiful looking displays in her kitchen. She pointed me in the direction of Freddie’s Flowers, a company delivering fresh, long lasting flowers on a flexible subscription. I’ve been using them for the last 6 months and have been absolutely thrilled with the results. This is my review of Freddie’s which I hope others in similar situations might find useful.

The flowers come beautifully, neatly and sustainably packaged. I also got one of their vases which are perfect for more high-end arrangements.

What are they:

Freddie’s Flowers is an affordable, easy to use service that brings fresh flowers to your door. They deliver all over the UK and offer flexible subscriptions to receive flowers on a weekly/monthly basis at a frequency that suits you. I especially loved how easy it is to pause your subscription if you go on holiday or want to skip a delivery.

The flowers they deliver are genuinely as good, if not better quality than the ones I was receiving from the florists and they come at a fraction of the price. Better yet, they arrive in bud so you get to watch them open and bloom in your home. It’s lovely watching the full life-cycle of each flower arrangement, and it’s amazing how long they last compared to both the supermarkets and the florists.

They arrive in bud with extensive instructions on how to look after them to ensure you get the maximum life out of them.

The benefits:

Aside from being extremely affordable at £25 per box, delivery is free, plus they provide a short guide on each bunch of flowers they send you and how to arrange them – so I’ve gone from knowing absolutely nothing about flowers, to actually sounding fairly knowledgeable! I love their personal, friendly service and the founder Freddie’s tagline “I’m like the milkman, but with flowers!”.

Pretty much everyone who comes around to the house (including my mother!) comments on how beautiful the flowers look and it really brightens up the house which is great. I’ve become such a fan that for Christmas my husband has given me the subscription for a year (I suspect he also quite likes the way the house looks!).

The flowers when they first arrived. Yet to bloom but still gorgeous!

Eco Packaging

I’m a big believer in keeping waste to a minimum especially with subscriptions where sometimes the packaging is crazy with plastic and bubble wrap all over the place. Freddie’s Flowers, I’m pleased to say, have clearly thought about this at length. They only cut flowers once ordered so have minimal flower waste compared to supermarkets and florists and better yet, the flowers come beautifully wrapped in brown paper and packaged in cardboard. It’s great to see them genuinely caring about their environmental impact.

Before bloom….
1 week later – bloomed & beautiful!!

I’m so pleased I stumbled across Freddie’s Flowers, I couldn’t be happier with what they send out. In over six months I’ve not had one single flower arrive in bad condition and without fail, the flower arrangements they send over are always absolutely stunning. If you want beautiful flowers that look like they’ve come from a top florist for a fraction of the price, Freddie’s is the answer to your prayers!
