Tips for ordering flowers for delivery and how to get the best value, service and selection.

BEWARE of the imposter out there who is looking to take advantage of your thoughtful gesture. Florists refer to them as D.O.Gs, Deceptive Order Gatherers. They are tricky and relying on you to fall for their trap, but not you, because now you will know how they work. 

-If you Spend £60 at a real local florist , approximately £60 of that goes toward the arrangement itself. Spend £60 on an order gatherer website and expect approximately £35.00 pays for your bouquet! They will take their cut from the purchasing customer and also from the executing florist . (Which do you think will look better?)
- Avoid clearing house type companies that pose as real florists. These scammers are known to send out low quality, cardboard box flowers or worst yet nothing is ever delivered at all. 
- When doing an internet search for a local florist be careful, check the physical address of the business.
- If in doubt Call them! Pretend you want to come in and pick something out. These fake listings will tell you they only do deliveries.
- If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Websites that show slashed prices and sales on their site are usually bogus. That's not how a real florist works.
Also beware extra delivery charges, a real florist will rarely charge extra for same day delivery.
- If they answer the phone "Flower Shop" they are not a real florist. They pay to have listings for every town and could very well be based in an office building 3,000 miles away or even a foreign country. 
- Check their reviews and their Facebook page. This should give you a good idea of who they are. Thousands of reviews are not a good sign. They pay people to leave positive ones to try and balance out all the negatives. 
It doesn't need to be hard to send a floral delivery. The easiest way is to know the name of your local florist. They can help you send anywhere and make sure you get what you want for a reasonable price.
