YOU can now order fresh flowers online from B&M, with bunches from £10 and free home delivery.
The discount retailer has launched the service just in time for Mother's Day on March 31.
There are dozens of bouquets to choose from on B&M's dedicated online flower delivery website.
Prices are affordable too, with the cost of a standard bunch ranging from £9.99 up to £24.99.
And all bunches come with free delivery.
But how does it compare to other services?
B&M's new shop now directly rivals Home Bargains' online flower delivery service, which also has bunches from £9.99 and offers free delivery.
What to do if your flower delivery goes wrong
HERE's what you need to do if your flowers are delivered in poor condition, according to consumer group Which?, or if they don't turn up at all.
If they're damaged:
- Take a picture as evidence of poor condition or damage to your flowers as this will help support your complaint.
- If a loved one or friend has sent you flowers that have arrived in a poor condition or late, make sure you tell them.
- Otherwise the retailer may say they can’t access the order information and won’t resolve the problem.
- If you order a specific number of flowers but fewer than this amount are delivered to you, you’re entitled to a partial refund for the missing flowers.
If they turn up late or not at all:
- A retailer normally has a maximum of 30 days to deliver your goods, but if you paid for the flowers to be delivered by a certain date or time and they didn't, you can get a full refund before the 30 day time limit.
Both discount retailers offer a similar range of flowers – but Home Bargains also sells a few potted plants, and a fruit basket.
At B&M, you can choose to upgrade your bouquet to "medium" for £5 extra or "large" for £10 more.
You can also choose to add on gifts such as a bottle of wine for £5.99 or a teddy bear for £3.99.
You can do the same using Home Bargains' service – but upgrading flowers is cheaper.
Making your bunch medium-sized only costs £3 and making it large costs £6 extra.
Meanwhile, its range of add-ons is very similar in price and variety.
With both services, you can choose your delivery date and pay £2.95 extra for guaranteed next-day delivery.
You don't need to worry that your loved one will know that you've gone for the budget option when sending them flowers.
B&M and Home Bargains both said that the names of the discounters won't be on the box the posies arrive in.
There are plenty of other online flower delivery services to choose from, too – but we haven't found any as cheap as B&M and Home Bargains yet.
Eflorist also has bunches from £9.99 – but they come with a £3.99 delivery fee.
Meanwhile, you can also order bouquets from £9.99 at Prestige Flowers – but the delivery fee is £5.80.
You can avoid the risks involved with getting your flowers delivered by choosing a local florist.
They tend to be more expensive but sometimes they will sell one-day-old bouquets at a discounted price.
There are also letterbox flower delivery services available so your loved one doesn't have to be at home to receive them.
Bloom&Wild offers this service, but prices start from £23.
Quidco is giving new customers a £15 discount off flowers in time for Mother's Day this month.
