Old fashioned, but lovely still. There are lots of florists that specialise in home delivery who will get blooms to your mum at the drop of your hat. Interflora uses local businesses to get things out fast, but there’s also online Serenata Flowers and many other local florists.
The Garden Museum’s lovely cafe has started a takeaway menu, which includes all sorts of yummy cakes. But there are lots of other initiatives being put into place by cafes and organisations. Have a look at your local cafe to see whether they have started delivering.
How about a voucher, spa day, garden visit, or weekend away set for a few months time? Something to look forward to.
Grow your own
Instead of ordering a bouquet, why not order seeds for mum to plant which will then grow into a gorgeous selection of flowers that she can turn into her very own display. Seed Pantry specialise in seed flower displays as well as monthly subscriptions for seeds.
