Valentine’s Day Flowers from Longacres

It’s not just a hint of snow that’s in the air at the moment, but good old love as well.  Yes, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner now, and as we like to say here ‘The early bird catches the £5 off discount’.  Okay, maybe not such a traditional quote, but one to bear in mind!

Dozen Red Roses BouquetHere at Longacres we are giving you the opportunity to show how much you love that someone special in your life by offering a hand tied bouquet of a dozen red roses in a lovely presentation box for just £34.99!  That’s a great saving of £5 on the usual price.  You need to place your order quickly though as this offer expires at 11:59 on 7th February.  You could then spend that extra £5 on a nice box of chocolates from our food section (we won’t tell anyone if you decide to eat them all yourself) or perhaps add a shiny red heart balloon to your arrangement for £2.99?

Lindor Chocolate Arrangement

If the love of your life is a bit of an orchid fan, how about a vase filled with delicious Lindor chocolates and topped with a stunning arrangement of roses and orchids for £39.99?  More of a traditionalist but want a twist? No problem! 12 beautiful red roses with gypsophila, carefully created by our talented florists, can be yours for just £44.99.

Maybe you prefer that understated romantic gesture of a single red rose, beautifully wrapped for £5.99, or a gorgeous rose gift pack containing 12 short stem roses with delicate diamonte detail, a box of Lindt chocolates and a bottle of rose wine for just £34.99.

They are used to mark a range of occasions, from births to funerals.

In fact, our Corporate Flower Service provides a range of wonderful displays tailored to your business. Whether you are looking for fresh flowers every week or an artificial display every quarter, our knowledgeable staff can provide an arrangement appropriate to your needs.

Our lovely team of florists also provide a range of hand-tied bouquets starting from as little as £19.99, and will do their best to meet any specific requirements you may have. Perhaps you prefer to have a little mystery in your life and receive our bouquet of the month; each bouquet is a wonderful seasonal arrangement guaranteed to brighten up your home for only £30. They even come with a free glass vase!

These are available for 3, 6 or 12 months. You can even choose the date that you would like your flowers delivered. Of course, you may decide to use your subscription as a special gift for a friend or loved one instead.

There really is something special about the smell of fresh flowers around the home isn’t there? We have a wide range of fresh cut flowers available daily in our specially chilled room so you can come in and select your favourites. We even have a range of great value offers on at the moment including ‘Buy 2 Bunches of Germini/Short Stem Roses/Sunflowers and Get Your 3rd Bunch Free’.

We know that spending a little time arranging your flowers can be quite relaxing, but if you want some extra help our florists will be more than happy to make your chosen blooms into a special gift. For only £5 extra (and a 15 minute wait – just enough time to collect some yummy cakes from the bakery section right next to Cut Flowers!) they can add foliage and wrap your blooms in cellophane (complete with a ‘water bum’ (aqua pack) so you don’t have to worry about them starting to wilt). You can also add a gift box for just £1.50.
