Which delivery flowers last the longest?

When ordering flowers to be delivered to your home, it can feel like a risk - how do you know that you'll receive a fresh, ready-to-bloom bunch in the post and not a wilting and lackluster collection of stems? Well, there are some flowers you should definitely avoid, as well as some you should look out for. "The best varieties when delivering flowers are typically ones that have strong, woody stems", says Jack Sheldon from East London florist Grace and Thorn (opens in new tab). He recommends "leucadendrons, roses, wax flowers, and berries such as hypericium".

Sheldon also suggests "foliage that lasts well and has a long shelf-life in the home," adding that "eucalyptus, grevillea and seasonal native branches such as viburnum" are his favorites at this time of year. Still worrying about receiving a mulchy mess in the post? Rest assured, as Sheldon tells us that "all flowers are perfectly able to be delivered, as long as they are conditioned well and come in the correct packaging". However, if in doubt, he recommends opting for dried flowers, "which make for a beautiful, long-lasting gift and require no water during transit".
