We are often asked what is the cheapest way to send flowers, or which is the cheapest online florist. The good news is that there are many ways to send flowers cheaply; you don’t need to spend a lot of money to order cheap bouquets and have a cheap flower delivery of beautiful freshly-cut flowers.
The cheapest flower delivery of all is free, if you send an e-card or virtual bouquet. If you want to send real discount flowers, there are several considerations to keep in mind as you browse the web. Following these guidelines will ensure you will have cheap flowers delivered without sacrificing quality, freshness or style.
Firstly, choose cheap flowers that are in-season, or that have a long season and are easily available. If you choose instead exotic flowers that grow only in a special kind of peaty soil, have to be watered with angel tears, and bloom only every fourth Thursday in February, then you’re going to have to pay a premium price if it’s September. Roses, carnations and chrysanthemums all have long seasons and last a long time as cut flowers.
Secondly, avoid scheduling delivery on obvious high-traffic holidays. Mother’s Day, Easter, and Valentine’s Day are all occasions when you may, depending on the ordering site and the florist, be charged a delivery surcharge. Sending the flowers a day or two earlier is just as nice a surprise for the recipient, and they’ll remain fresh through the occasion.
You should also consider ordering the flowers wrapped, without a vase; you’ll often get a slightly larger bouquet.
