We are BLOOMING WILD about Bloom and Wild ~ an innovative and creative online florist who are now our preferred supplier of all things pretty!

Who are Bloom and Wild?

“Our Flower Team are putting the fun back into flower gifting by designing exciting, on-trend bouquets of fresh flowers that are simple to send and even easier to receive.

We’ve transformed one of the most traditional of gestures: the giving of fresh flowers. Now you can send flowers in seconds wherever you are, safe in the knowledge that your flowers will be delivered through the door the very next day.

Our care and attention to detail of every bouquet we deliver means we are the UK’s most loved online florist.” — Bloom and Wild

We have used Bloom and Wild for a little while now – sending letterbox flowers and hand-tied bouquets to staff, to families and to friends.  We haven’t actually seen their beautiful flowers ourselves though.  That is, until Bloom and Wild kindly sent a complimentary letterbox flower delivery to Redcroft care home, for residents and staff to enjoy!

How exciting!

There is just something so special about receiving flowers.  The difficulty is that, unless you are home to receive them, it can be rather a pain not knowing if the recipient will be home to take delivery of your gift.  Problem solved!  Bloom and Wild’s letterbox flowers are smartly packed in slim boxes that will fit through 99% of letterboxes.  So, unless you live in a fairy house at the bottom of the garden, chances are you will never miss a delivery of flowers again!

How did it look when delivered?

Beautifully packaged with ribbon, card, care instructions, each bloom was precisely placed within the box and most still in bud to ensure longevity.  What a lovely gift!

What we especially loved was the soft fragrance from the roses and spring buds and greenery.  There were no less than 19 stems of loveliness, of meadowy foliage and delicate petals.  Packed by hand, the blooms are individually netted to protect them in transit.  With a personalised card as standard, Bloom and Wild really do think of everything and make it as simple as possible to order from them.
