When BasketsGalore first started out the idea was to be an alternative to Flower Gifts by post, and to an extent this is still true. However, in the past few years we have also embraced flowers in our own way & adopted "Flowering Plants" into our range of Floral Gift Baskets. You can see some examples here.
For fresh bouquets you are never going to be able to do it better than a local florist, as they are based locally and can hand deliver them. However, flowering plants work well by post for us as they are just as pretty and can travel overnight alongside your gift basket or hamper so as both parts of the gift arrive together.
Our main flowering plant is a miniature rose bush, and sometimes Chrysanthemums and Begonias, but it made me interested to research other potential flowering plants. Wouldn't it be great if we could have seasonal ones based on the time of year?
There's no time like the present and so I looked at September flowers and found this brilliant infographic below. The rose is in there for this month, so for the moment we're perfect!
Flower Gifts are perfect not only for birthdays, but also as Thinking of You or Sympathy Gifts, Thank You Gifts and Get Well Gifts. We have an assortment of flowering plants delivered by the wholesaler on Monday mornings. Although we don't specify a colour of rose plant in the Product Description as these cannot be guaranteed, many Customers do put special requests in for specific colours and we try our best to do this for you. Recently a lady really wanted a yellow rose bush and when the delivery arrived on the Monday morning, there wasn't a yellow one among them! Just our luck. We did however, nip out to a local supplier and managed to source a yellow one especially for her.
For Special Occasions such as Valentine's Day we also try to include red or pink rose plants, and when it's a Sympathy gift this would be white when possible. When we couldn't get a white rose plant lately for a Thinking of You gift, at the request of a customer we again went to a local supplier and got a white lily plant instead.
