Oh no interflora is pants. You can't beat good old M&S.

Jane packer flowers are lovely. You need to order before noon for next day delivery though.

The other nice one I use is but they are a bit more 'old fashioned' IYKWIM.

John Lewis site is great

Another vote for M&S
Though I have heard good reports about NEXT and Debenhams too

Just to agree with lockets, i have done this. You can get list of florists local to your MIL through

Boots and Next are good dont bother with flying bouquets as mine is still flying !! (Am still waiting for my valentines that was ordered 2 weeks ago)

Boots have a third off of their flowers at the mo as well. So if you're anything like me you like to spend as little as possible on the mil

Tesco do fantastic ones, but agree not to bother with Flying Flowers - they're dreadful. They come by first class post, so there's no guaranteed date for delivery, and if she's not in, she will have to go to the hassle of fetching them from the depot because the postman won't leave them on the doorstep.

I sent from flowers from and they were (according to the recipient) absolutely lovely.

There's some good offers on M&S 5% off when ordered on line and some arrangements have free choccies.

I have had them from m&s and from john lewis and the john lewis ones were nicer.
