Value Flora is an online florist which lets you send flowers as well as balloons.
The best words to describe them I think would be "cheap and cheerful".
When you log onto their site you can choose from a menu down the side to choose by theme. I always select "Value flowers". This is where Value Flora comes into their own, they have a range of flowers from about £8.99-£12.99. It is slightly annoying that they frequently change the prices, what is £12.99 one day is £10 the next so if I am sending flowers for a certain occasion I always check the site quite a while in advance and select a later delivery date (first class delivery is free). Their balloons are all £10.99 with free P&P.
I've never ordered their £30-£40 range as to be honest for that price I would prefer to use a local trusted florist, but I often use their value range when a friend needs cheering up. I pay using Paypal but you can pay using a credit card if you prefer.
They arrive in a small box with no cellophane, ribbons or fancy wrapping but for £10 I think they are true "value" and would recommend them.
This company has changed hands and is no longer based in Manchester. They have not refunded my money after getting an order wrong three times and have not replied to my letter of complaint after three months. My advice is that ordering from Valueflora is a risk. If anything goes wrong with your order then your chances of putting it right are minimal: better to just write it off and go elsewhere. I was a big fan now I am telling everyone to steer clear. One star given grudgingly
Didn't deliver flowers on valentines day as promised by their guarantee. Can only send emails to them - no contact number. No response so far. Very poor - avoid using. Waited in all day for nothing - day was ruined.
This is my first review - hope it is useful!!
I have used Valueflora.com a couple of times now and have been thrilled with the service. The prices first made me think that the flowers would'nt be of good quality (Three Dozen Roses, delivered for £29.99) when compared to the other florists around (I used to pay £50+ for ONE dozen at Interflora) but I was very pleased with what received!
You do need to order a few days in advance, but the savings are worth it. Plus, they have live chat and a small and friendly team who reply to emails really quickly.
My three dozen roses (which I've ordered twice) arrived with foliage and filler flowers, lovely wrapping and a hand written card. They arrive via Royal Mail in a big white box.
I would recommend them to anyone and hope you find this helpful!!
