If you want to show someone you care, forget the stereotypical red roses. Buy a flower subscription and shower your loved one with seasonal, sustainable blooms all year long.
Fresh flowers can make all the difference to a room. They bring life, colour and fragrance into your home, and some studies have shown they even have the power to reduce blood pressure, pain and anxiety in those around them. Sending a joy-filled bouquet to a loved one on a monthly basis is a thoughtful way to show your heart-felt appreciation for everything they do - and a flower subscription takes care of that for you.
More and more businesses are offering convenient fresh flower deliveries as monthly subscriptions. And most champion seasonal British flowers and sustainable practices by sourcing stems ethically or locally and sending them in recyclable packaging. Whether you want flowers you can send through the letterbox or pre-arranged displays, simply choose a style and subscription that suits your budget.
We've already already listed our favourite plant subscription services, so here we're focussing on the UK’s best flower subscription services. Whether you want to treat a loved one or give yourself the gift of filling your home with a regular supply of fresh blooms, take a look at the fantastic options below.

Best for seasonal blooms
Price: From £25 | Rate: Monthly | Subscription Length: 3, 6 or 12 months, or ongoing
Rather than providing a selection of pre-set bouquets for customers to consider, Blossoming Gifts sends an arrangement of whichever flowers are in season at the time. So, you’ll always get fresh, beautiful blooms to keep in your home.
On Blossoming Gifts’ price plan, you’ll pay less per bouquet the longer your subscription length. Opt for a three-month plan and it’s £30 per delivery, but extend to a 12-month or ongoing contract for £25 bouquets.
Conveniently, you can skip deliveries if you’re out of the house, making this a convenient flower subscription service.
Best price range
Price: From £22 | Rate: Monthly | Subscription Length: 3, 6 or 12 months
Head to Bunches if you want more control over the number of stems you receive and the amount you spend. Blooms cost between £20 and £30 per delivery, but you can customise your order by choosing 10-12 stems (£22), 14-16 stems (£26), 16-18 stems (£28), 18-20 stems (£30).
Set up your subscription for three, six or 12 months, and Bunches will deliver your blooms in plastic-free, fully-recyclable packaging. There’s even a letterbox-friendly option, which is ideal if you know you’ll be out of the house on delivery days.
Best single-variety bouquets
Price: From £35 | Rate: Weekly, bi-weekly or monthly| Subscription Length: Flexible
In contrast to the many varied floral arrangements available to buy through subscription, By Bloom offers bunches of just one type of flower. Not only does this approach reduce waste, it also gives you a less fussy and more informal look, as if you’d just gathered the blooms from your garden.
The flowers come from growers across the UK and Europe, and they’re selected by the famous London-based florist Larry Walshe.
By Bloom is another brand to consider if you prioritise sustainability. It sends out all its arrangements in 100% recyclable packaging and aims to plant enough trees to offset its carbon footprint from production processes, packaging, deliveries and office operations.
Best long-running online florist
Price: From £79.99 (£26.66 per delivery) | Rate: Monthly | Subscription Length: 3 or 6 months
Having started out in 1978, Clare Florist has over four decades of industry experience. In fact, it’s been sending out deliveries for online orders since 1996, so it’s fair to say the brand knows a thing or two about keeping customers happy.
Clare Florist has developed a simple subscription model with four different options. Choose the standard or luxury bouquet, which arrives with a box of chocolates as a special gift, in either a three- or six-month subscription.
Whichever model you select, you’ll get a fresh seasonal bouquet every month - each one different from the last. Plus, they all come with a seven-day freshness guarantee.
Best for specific occasions
Price: From £35 | Rate: Monthly | Subscription Length: 3, 6, 9 or 12 months
Interflora has been supplying beautiful blooms for almost 100 years now, and it’s developed a flexible subscription service priced at £35 for each monthly delivery. Packages range in length from three months (£105) to a year (£420), but always include fresh, seasonal flowers.
After your first order, which has a £7 courier fee, every delivery is free of charge.
Like many flower subscription providers, Interflora also sells one-off bouquets and house plants, but its easy-to-navigate website makes it particularly convenient to use. The brand categorises its blooms by occasion, so, if you want to surprise a loved one, you'll be able to find an appropriate bouquet in no time.

Despite being a relatively small business, Freddie’s Flowers has already accepted more than three million orders. The brand’s story began when Freddie started preparing flowers in a tent in his parents’ garden and delivering them locally in a yellow milk float.
If you sign up for a subscription, you’ll pay £25 per delivery and get some of the rarer flower varieties you don’t see in other branded boxes. You can also choose how frequently you receive your blooms and opt for an arrangement without lilies if you have pets or allergies.
Plus, Freddie’s Flowers bouquets are sent with sustainability in mind. They come in biodegradable packaging through carbon neutral deliveries. And you can recycle your box by leaving it out for the delivery driver to pick up when they drop off your next bunch.
