Best Valentine’s Day flowers 2021: where to buy cheapest bouquets and roses

VALENTINE'S Day is just a day away, which means you should already have planned how you're going to romance your other half.

But if you're still unsure, a bouquet of roses is always a good place to start.

But price for flowers range massively, with small bunches starting from just £2 at Asda while Interflora's bunch will set you back £55.

It's well worth shopping around as you can get very similar bunches with the same number of stems and colours for different costs.

To make things even more complicated, prices vary depending on when you order your roses.

Somewhat surprisingly, they're at their cheapest on Valentine's Day itself as supermarkets and florists look to shift leftover stock.

The concern with this approach is that you're relying on there being attractive bunches left on the shelf.

Being more organised means you can plan your finances better and be safe in the knowledge that your flowers will arrive on time.

However, with fewer than 24 hours to go, the chances are you've left it too late to order them online unless you can pay extra for same day delivery.

If you're looking for a great deal, supermarkets are the cheapest place to go, but you might end up compromising on quality.

High street retailers tend to sell short-stemmed “sweetheart” roses, which don't last as long – while florists have bouquets with long stems and bigger heads.

If money is tight, don't panic – we've rounded up the cheapest roses we could find online this year.

Bear in mind that flowers ordered online today are not likely to arrive on time. However, some online retailers have already slashed prices to reflect this. Here's our pick of the best.

What to do if you aren't happy with your flowers

There's nothing worse than disappointing flowers, but if yours aren't at the quality you expect, you might be able to get your money back.

Consumer group Which? advises you take the following steps to get a refund:

  • Take a picture as evidence of poor condition or damage to your flowers as this will help  support your complaint.
  • If a loved one or friend has sent you flowers that have arrived in a poor condition or late, make sure you tell them. Otherwise the retailer may say they can’t access the order information and won’t resolve the problem.
  • If you order a specific number of flowers but fewer than this amount are delivered to you, you’re entitled to a partial refund for the missing flowers.
