Interflora offers one of the largest ranges of Mother's Day flowers available in the UK. That's because one of the best flower delivery services partners with local artisan florists to fill out its catalogue with a wealth of gorgeous bouquets, plants, and gifts. They're easy to order online, and one of the biggest draws about Interflora's Mother's Day flowers is that they'll be hand-delivered for maximum impact anywhere in the UK - that's a rarity. It's also potentially a cause of concern in the current climate, but it needn't be. 

Although there are no letterbox options at Interflora, if you'd like a non-contact drop-off, you can specify that in the delivery instructions at checkout. (Also, if necessary, your recipient can reinforce the request with a note on the door - this will remove any element of surprise, of course.)

The majority of Interflora's Mother's Day flowers come in at between £35 and £60, with greetings cards, chocolates, prosecco and champagne available to add to your order as well. If you don't find the right Mother's Day bouquet, there's also plenty of variety available in Interflora's gifts selection - from Gin-Lovers' Gift Bags (£38) to an Afternoon Tea Tray (£43) or Sweet Nostalgia Hamper (£39).

That means more Mother's Day flowers for your cash, as long as you don't mind delivery on the 20th March. View Deal

Interflora Mother's Day flower delivery options

Interflora's Mother's Day flowers can be delivered on the day – 22 March - from £11, but choosing a Saturday delivery will cut that all the way down to just £7 for a hand-delivered service. If you forget to place your order early, Interflora offers next-day delivery and even same-day delivery on plenty of bouquets, depending on your local area. 

As we mentioned earlier, there aren't any letterbox flower options available from Interflora, but if you would like a non-contact drop-off you can specify this in the delivery instructions at checkout. (If this is extremely important, we advise you to ask the recipient to put a note on the door, too.)

What happened: We found ordering Mother's Day flowers online through Interflora to be an easy and quick process - especially considering you're buying hand-delivered flowers that are crafted by a local artisan florist. We chose the large Mother's Day Pastels bouquet, and were instantly impressed when it turned up. Unlike boxed flower deliveries, hand-delivered bouquets are usually bigger and better presented - and our Mother's Day Pastels bouquet scored highest on both fronts, beating the others in our tests with a wide array of colours and smells.

Some flowers had been substituted, but they were a good match and complimented the rest of the arrangement so well that the originals weren't missed. The overall effect remaining as stunning as expected. 

As promised, some stems were still in bud to ensure the bouquet would last at least seven days, as Interflora guarantees. 

Verdict: We were certainly impressed with our Interflora Mother's Day flowers. If you're looking for instant wow, we recommend this bouquet. Despite the substitution of some flowers, the overall effect was very impressive and we would happily order more Mother's Day flowers from Interflora. With such a wide variety of flowers and gifts on offer, there's plenty to suit everyone's taste. This service does come at a slight premium, though, and you'll certainly find cheaper Mother's Day flowers elsewhere, especially considering that £11 delivery cost.
