    To be honest I would just ring up the local florist(to her) and order her a bouquet or whatever from them. At lest you can walk into the shop if you have cause to complain.

    Definitely not Iflowers or Flowerfete
    Hi,
    I have used Bunches before and they were always good.
    I had also used Flowerfete but whether they have changed ownership or amalgamated with others, I don't know because their communications come up as Iflowers.
    Had I read the reviews on Iflowers, I would never have ordered from them however I didn't and sincerely regret it.
    The flowers were ordered as part of an anniversary and birthday present for my wife, Three bunches consisting of 60 red roses. Half of them withered by the next day and all had died just one day after our anniversary. I emailed them the day after my wife received them and emailed them two or three more times to ask for my money back. So far I have been offered a fresh bunch of flowers and a £5 voucher!
    Why would anyone spend a penny more on such a poor performing company so the £5 voucher is useless and I have told them that another bunch of flowers (I ordered 3, 60 red roses in all) is not acceptable and I want my money back.
    Just think you should look at company reviews before choosing, as I should have done, then I would have seen 167 one star reviews with some people saying they couldn't give 0 stars. There were no other reviews above 1 star!

    No they don't !
    I am laughing at your message as I was so angry about poor service on flower delivery. Seeing this message asking for recommendations I just wanted to let them know not to choose a company I dealt with. After feeling pleased that I had warned another potential victim I read through some of the reviews and saw your comment! lol

    For sending gifts like roses or flowers, cake, sweets and chocolate hampers to india for the special occasions like birthday, anniversary or special days like mother's day and valentine's day, dewstem.com is probably the best option. Many buyers prefer FNP or any renowned online florist in India. However, many of them are always disappoint to receive the kind of service they receive from such renowned florist in India. I have been using the services of Dewstem.com for past couple of years and it has never ever disappointed me. Rather it has always delivered the best service exceeding my expectations. Its support team is very helpful and sensitive to our specific needs. Their personal follow up for each and very order is just awesome. Dewstem.com is though is not very popular name in Indian online florist yet the kind of service this offers, makes it a stand out of the crowd among florist in india. Tried and experienced many times and I would personally recommend it for sending flowers, cake and gifts to india for best ever prices and value for your money.

    Ha! I'm not sending to India!!!

    Sent flowers with Bunches last month- almost the cheapest I could find online. Went thro Topcashback so a little extra saving.
    Flowers ordered at 3.30pm and arrived next day
    My friend said they were very pretty- multiheaded colourful carnations, couldn't have done better if I had bought from a local florist- her words. She expected them to last a long time as they arrived in bud.
    Being polite and pleasant doesn't cost anything!

    Finding the best online shop for flowers is not that tough. You can easily find it in google by just typing "best flower online (your city or country name)" and you will surely get the best result. You can also check manually by reviews of that online florist or shop to know how good or bad that shop or florist is. Here in London I personally use the shop named Flower Station. I used this shop to order flowers online many time and they are good at it. They also provides the same day as well as next day flowers delivery so you can plan a surprise also.

    You can visit their store here : flowerstation.co.uk

    I have also used Bunches as they seemed to have decent prices, free delivery (except on Sundays) and the BUN20 code worked - plus you can earn points for money off next time

    Bunches of Nothing
    After reading some positive reviews about Bunches on this site I decided to order some flowers from them for my Mother's 82nd Birthday AND paid premium for am delivery. Despite being told that the flowers had been delivered AND signed for by my Mother the flowers never turned up. When I asked to see the signature they said that they had tried to deliver the flowers to the wrong address....this despite having both my mother's telephone number and mine "in case of problems". No meaningful explanation as to why they were saying that the flowers had been delivered and signed for! Said they would deliver the next day.....why would I want birthday flowers delivered a day late? Asked for refund which they said would take 5 working days, so I started a complaint with PayPal and guess what? Money turned up in my account first thing next morning! Anybody reading this looking for a reliable Florist AVOID BUNCHES...In future I will stick to M&S, they may cost a bit more, but they have never missed a delivery. By the way on Bunches own web site the reviews rate them 4.5, on Trustpilot they are rated 1.5 stars...I wonder why this is....could it be that they just don't publish poor reviews on their own site? They certainly haven't published my poor review yet!

    Bunch of nothing
    After reading reviews on this site, I paid extra to have flowers delivered for my Mums 90th birthday - she was in all day and I asked them to knock loudly. Instead she just got a note asking her to collect from a depot (that's a 90 year old partially sighted woman who was in). Since I had not heard anything I had to phone her which ruined the surprise and ended up with my mum in tears instead of a wonderful bouquet on her birthday. The company offered me a refund or they could be redelivered in 2 days time neither of which rectify the error. I had to escalate and they offered me the delivery charge back . If that is customer focused service then they need to think again.
