Don’t be persuaded by the national flower dealers that deliver in boxes, and offer large savings and propaganda. Did you know that national flowers are picked too soon, just so that they package better? They are shipped in a box that then requires your assembly! Some nursing homes and hospitals will not accept them because they are too much work for the nurses and staff.
Before you choose where to purchase your flowers I urge you to check out the company’s Facebook page. Read what people are writing about their experiences and the customer service they receive. A lot of reviews or comments include pictures too. I urge you remember your local florist. Your local florist’s flowers will be professionally arranged and hand delivered. Imagine the quality! Imagine that the bouquet that you send would actually look like the picture!
