This is a subscription first for me. I’m used to the foodie, snack, kids, beauty and even geek boxes but I have not come across a flower delivery subscription before now.
Bloomon is a London based subscription service which started in the Netherlands. Bloomon flowrs are cut inin their fields in Holland and delivered to your door the very next day via fast express shipping. The delivery service is subscription based and you can set up an account to have flowers delivered weekly, fortnightly or monthly and pick from a small, medium and large size bouquets. A free glass vase comes with the first order.
I was really pleasantly surprised to receive a rather large bouquet from them, complete with a large vase. There is nothing worse than receiving beautiful flowers and having nothing suitable to place them in. The bouquet came in huge tall box which was almost as big as myself. The flowers get wrapped and packaged really well with the flower stems wrapped in a wet sponge type material to keep them fresh on their journey.
To keep the flowers fresher and blooming longer, a satchet of plant food also comes included which gets tipped into the water.
My bouquet is really big and so it’s hard to get a good picture of the whole thing at a good angel. Instead I have taken various shots at different angles so the majority of the flowers can be seen.
My bouquet is an array of beautiful colours and lovely scents. Vibrant oranges, baby pink, purple, white surrounded by greenery, a lovely large bouquet which is now sitting perfectly on my new unit in my hallway for all to see as they come in. Having flowers or plants in my home do seem to make me feel slightly happier.
I am no flower expert so I’m unable to say which flowers are in my bouquet. The only one I really know is the rose which by itself is a beauty.
I also have no idea how to properly arrange flowers so I’ve just done the best I can with these and I think it looks okay so far.
Many of the flowers arrive unbloomed, being freshly cut so it’s always nice to see a new flower that perhaps was not their before.
Getting new fresh flowers delivered regularly to your doorstep is such a lovely idea. Bloomon prices start from £20.95.
