Teleflora Superbowl Commercial
One of our flower suppliers did a mini experiment last year and ordered some "boxed" flowers to compare them to ones they provide. This is what they had to say......
I thought you might be interested in hearing about a dozen roses we ordered. The order was for one dozen roses and Godiva chocolates and cost $49.99. It as delivered by UPS at about 3:30 on Valentines Day, as promised. The roses were packed well, but only 30 cm. in length, which is 12 inches. They barley came over the top of the vase. There was a little botrytis (Yucky disease) on the petals which spread to other roses after two days. The chocolates were in a large package, but the size box of candy was very disappointing. Overall, we felt that a customer could get a much better deal from a local florist than from the online source.
