We've shared everything you need to know about Waitrose and Partner's flower delivery service and included our favourites that you can order for delivery right now.

Where do I find Waitrose flower delivery?

If you're looking to order flowers with a lower price-tag to just spruce up your own home, you can add flowers to your usual weekly shop delivery by navigating from the Waitrose website to the Groceries tab, dropping down to 'Kitchen, Dining, & Home', selecting 'Outdoor & Garden', and then 'Flowers, Plants & Bulbs'. Here you can find a range of Waitrose brand bouquets, bunches, and spray carnations.

However, if you're looking to treat that special someone or want to explore a greater variety of flowers and bouquets, you should visit Waitrose Florist. As their dedicated website for plants and flowers, you'll be able to find beautiful bouquets perfect for marking occasions, exclusive collections, and a vast range of flower varieties and colours.

What is the price range for Waitrose flower delivery?

Waitrose flowers from Waitrose Florist range from £18 to £65, while plants range in price from £22 to £68.

If these are a little out of your price range, we’d recommend checking out their flower offering available as a part of your grocery shop with prices starting from £3.25. Alternatively, you can check out other supermarket flower delivery services from M&S and Sainsburys or the best cheap flower deliveries for under £23.

What are my options?

  • Bouquets: Seasonal hand-tied bouquets designed exclusively for Waitrose Florist and only available online.
  • Gift bags: Gorgeous displays arranged in gift bags, a welcome gift for special occasions.
  • Letterbox flowers: Budding flowers packaged to fit through your letterbox for you to arrange at home. Great if you want a flower delivery but aren't sure if you or the recipient will be in to receive them.
  • Bunches of flowers: These flowers are delivered in bud for you to arrange and watch them bloom. Larger than letterbox flowers, you can make a single arrangement or split it among several vases.
  • Indoor plants: Bring a touch of greenery into the home, or give as a long-lasting gift. Each comes in beautiful, striking containers.
  • Outdoor plants: Plants to add to your outdoor collection, each in a lovely garden planter that'll add colour to your outdoor space.
  • Gifting Options: If you want to make your flowers extra special, you have the option to add gifts including Neal's Yard Remedies, champagne and fizz, chocolates, and sweet hand-iced biscuits.
  • Emma Bridgewater Collection: Waitrose collaborates seasonal arrangements with Emma Bridgewater's exclusively designed ceramics - quintessentially British and charming.

Size: Overall height 48-52cm. 17 stems including three pink germini, two peach germini, three Rose Pink, three Rose Pink, three orange spray rose, a green bell, and two white matricaria.

How to keep flowers fresh for longer

Here is some key and simple guidance from Waitrose Florist, to help your new blooms last as long as possible:

  1. Clean your vase thoroughly. Any lingering bacteria will make your flowers wilt faster.

  2. Fill the vase two-thirds with fresh, lukewarm water and add your flower food. Top up the water the day after receiving your flowers, rather than changing it completely – this way, they benefit from the food for longer.

  3. Remove any foliage that will sit below the waterline to avoid a build-up of debris. If your flowers include roses, you may notice some discoloured outer petals. These are guard petals, which protect the inner petals. Gently remove 2-3 guard petals to reveal these.

  4. Chris Wood, Partner & Head Florist, says: "To keep your flowers blooming beautifully, make sure you trim the stems and refresh their water every few days. This will help extend their vase life." Trim about 2-3cm from the bottom of the stems at a 45-degree angle. This stops the stems from resting on the bottom of the vase and increases their surface area, allowing for better water uptake. Change the water regularly after the second day, topping up the water every other day, and make sure to change it immediately if you notice the water has turned cloudy.

  5. Keep your flowers out of direct sunlight to prolong their life.

  6. Remove any dead or wilting stems from the arrangement to reduce the spread of mould.
