I have tried many flower delivery services. From ones that pop through your letterbox, to standard massive boxes delivered to your door. To be perfectly honest - I love them all. Flowers make me happy and even a single rose puts a smile on my face.
I was recently sent a gorgeous bouquet of Christmas flowers by Appleyard London and I made sure to spam you all with tons of photos of it on my instagram. I usually avoid bouquets that are mainly roses, but I wanted to see how long they manage to last. I normally go for carnations or germinis, as they tend to last for 2 weeks (or even longer).
The bouquet I opted for is called Rose Envy* and I got the x-large size, retailing at £49.99. The medium is £5 cheaper and the small size is £10 cheaper. The composition features a mix of versilia roses, memory lane roses and deep red roses nestled between glossy red berries and blue veronica. Stunning! You also get a 175g box of Belgid'Or Chocolates. Yum!
Sooo... How did the roses last? The versilia roses (the peach ones) lasted for 5 days and the red and violet roses lasted for 9 days. That's what I usually expect from roses anyway.
