Valentine’s Day is coming up once again and whether you’re in a loving relationship already or you want to make a grand, romantic gesture towards someone you’ve been crushing on for a while, it’s hard to go wrong with flowers - a universal symbol of affection and care and, in the modern age, it’s easier than ever to get a beautiful collection of flowers sent directly to your crush, even anonymously if you enjoy the whole ‘secret admirer’ thing.

Of course, because it’s easy to get flowers online, it’s also something you need to be a little careful about. Not every flower delivery company out there is of the same quality, so to avoid disappointment, we’ve gone ahead and scoped out some of the best flowers you can order this Valentine’s Day. So here we go, here are the best flowers for Valentine’s Day 2020.

Best Valentine's Day Flowers - Appleyard Flowers

  • Trustpilot score: 4/5
  • Price range: £25-£50

I’ve used Appleyard Flowers a few times, and they’ve always been great. They deliver beautiful, full bouquets on time and the flowers have lasted about two weeks (though they start to look a little shabby by the end of the second week).

Tip: don’t just look at their Valentine’s Day flowers, they often have decent discounts outside of their themed bouquets.

Best Valentine's Day Flowers - Interflora

  • Trustpilot score: 4.5/10
  • Price range: £30-£50

Interflora works a little differently to the other sellers listed above. They deliver flowers through your local flower shop, meaning that the quality tends to be high and they’re delivered on time (as they haven’t got thousands of orders to carry). They’re a little pricier than Bloom and Wild, but if you’re trying to impress someone this Valentine’s Day (or make up for something), this is the best option.

Best Valentine's Day Flowers - Flying Flowers

  • Trustpilot score: 4.5/5
  • Price range: £20-£40

Flying Flowers has been around since 1981, giving it a bit of a pedigree in the whole ‘delivering flowers’ business. Not to be left behind when the internet took over from over-the-phone orders, the company had fully adopted the modern age with a nicely designed website that boasts their ‘over 10 million bouquets delivered’. Over their entire career, I’d assume.

Currently, for Valentine’s Day, you can get £10 off a dozen red Roses, along with free delivery and a free box of chocolates thrown in for good measure. You’ll likely want to order that sooner rather than later, though, to make sure you can get your flowers delivered on the big day itself.

Best Valentine's Day Flowers - Bloom and Wild

  • Trustpilot score: 5/5
  • Price range: £20-£40

Bloom and Wild deliver flowers through the letterbox thanks to some smart packaging - this means that their flowers tend to be a bit cheaper than many other places because you don’t have to pay for a person and a van to deliver them. They don’t quite the same impact as a giant bouquet turning up, but they’re still high quality, beautiful flowers.

Best Valentine's Day Flowers - Floom

  • Trustpilot score: 4/5
  • Price range: £27-£80

Floom is a newer online retailer that has gained a lot of attention in recent years, thanks to its unique business model. Rather than keeping its own warehouse full of budding plants, ready to be primped and styled before being sent out for delivery, Floom instead works directly with florists local to you (or whoever you are having your flowers delivered). This way, you'll not only be getting a beautiful bouquet for your significant other on the special day itself but you'll be supporting your local businesses the whole time. Bonus.
