It can be birthday bouquets, romantic flowers or flower baskets. It’s also important how you choose to offer flowers, remembering thatit is now extremely easy to send flowers by post.

What are the benefits for sending flowers by post?

There are benefits of choosing to send the flower by post. Below are just a few that I see as beneficial to consider

  • you can order whenever you want them and choose to be delivered at any time and date
  • they will be delivered quickly and still fresh and smelling gorgeous
  • you can order the flowers before the event to make sure you don’t forget
  • wide range of available flowers for any occasion
  • you can customize your order. Every occasion or recipient must receive a different bouquet of flowers. If you offer your lover a birthday bouquet, it may include red roses, the symbol of love. If you choose a flower basket for your mother, for example, it may include an orchid.
  • the unexpected joy from your loved one or friend when they receive the flowers, delivered on her doorstep. A gesture that will surprise and hopefully really make her happy
  • The flowers can be delivered anywhere. Work, home, restaurant. You choose!


So, which flowers you should choose to send?

It’s very important to choose the flowers that you will include in your bouquet or basket carefully. Every flower has a meaning or symbolism so ensure you get this right!

If you are looking for birthday bouquets for your girlfriend or wife it can be tricky, but I will help you with some recommendations in order to make sure you make the best decision.

The passion’s symbol’s always the red rose, a star among the romantic flowers. They are sexy, classical and elegant. But if you have a long term relationship and you have already sent her red roses on numerous occasions, it might be a good idea to make a change. If you want to stick with roses, you can choose another color, such as orange or yellow. Again both with meaning and symbolism of trust and friendship aswell as love and caring.

You can pay attention to her favorite color when you choose. If you still want something red, tulips are another great choice. They are elegant and stylish. The tulip’s center resembles a heart, so you would still have the love factor. And you can go that extra mile and mix tulips with roses. It will make a beautiful birthday bouquet that she will definitely be impressed with.

If you are looking for a special bouquet for your relationship or wedding anniversary, you can choose for example purple roses, it’s the symbol of love at first sight. Rekindle the love you had for her and show her that you love her like you always have since the very first day. Romantic and elegant at the same time.

Also, you can choose yellow flowers, they symbolize the warmth and enjoying one another’s company, sharing similar interests. They are the perfect choice for letting your wife or girlfriend know that you appreciate your relationship and you have a special connection. You can choose yellow roses or tulips to help mix things up a bit.

If your wife celebrates her birthday in spring, you may choose daisies or freesias. They have a fresh look, ideal for spring. Irises are also a good choice, they are delicate and great for expressing compliments and friendships. Offering her irises, you can thank her for being next to you or being a great wife/mother.

If she celebrates her birthday in late summer, you can choose sunflowers. They are bright, yellow and transmit joy and happiness. Their petals mimic the sun, a perfect way to let your wife know that she brightens up your life.

Orchids make a refined choice, They are elegant, sophisticated, with a lovely design. They will help you communicate to your wife that you appreciate her beauty and strength. Theya re also extremely beautiful in every way.

You should also know that every month has a flower dedicated to it. So, you can choose the flower specific to her birth month. For example, Narcissus is for December and Carnation for January. We have put together a quick reference article here to help give you some ideas. Which flower for my birth month?

You can also choose mixed birthday bouquets. These require a more complex approach and be careful about the type of flowers and colors you choose to mix, in order to look great. This doesn’t mean don’t give it a go! Be Bold, be adventurous and be different!

You don’t always need a special occasion to surprise her with flowers. This will make her extremely happy and make her feel loved and cherished always. Also, you can brighten her day any day with a bouquet of pink flowers, the symbol of joy and paradise, like Bird of Paradise.

I received a flower bouquet from my husband, made with Birds of Paradise before our holiday, by post. I was surprised and so happy that I received this beautifully colored flower bouquet with no particular reason. The surprise was even bigger because it was sent by post and I didn’t expect the package to be flowers.

If I knew that it’s my husband with flowers, the surprise would not be the same. In fact, it would make me think he has done something wrong! But the fact that he thought about it, made arrangements and chose the proper flowers, while he was keeping a secret, it all contributes to a very happy surprise. It felt like a grand gesture and it was a beautiful surprise that I did not see coming.

Choosing to send flowers by post it’s a great way of letting your special person know that you think about her, you love and cherish your relationship. This shows that you put the effort into this gesture, you did not just go past the supermarket, pick a bouquet and offered it. You took the time to search the online flower shop, you chose the perfect bouquet, arranged the delivery. It shows that you went that extra mile to make her happy and she will almost certainly appreciate the gesture.

Don’t forget to add a note when you are sending the flowers by post. That way she will know from whom she received the beautiful flowers and will enjoy reading a few words from you. Choosing the right flowers, along with the note and the surprise of receiving them by post, will help you give her a special, unforgettable surprise.

One of our all-time favourites has really been the Freesias and yes, you really can send freesias by post! These flowers hold a very strong and unique fragrance which makes them a very popular flower and a great choice for sending through the post.

Freesias don’t really have any significant meaning to them, unlike roses or tulips so they are a great choice of flowering bouquets to send to anyone. We have moore information a bit furter down for some great ideas on flower choices and how to send freesias by post.

Here are 3 of my most popular freesia bouquet choices.


Freesias are probably the most popular flower that are sent by post. The beautiful bell-shaped flowers along with the strong wiry stems mean that freesia bouquets can be put together in so many ways. Freesias are extremely versatile and great for creating tight colourful bouquets.

Do you know which colour flowers are the most fragrant? Keep reading and ill tell you shortly.

Can Freesias be grown at home?

The simple answer to this question is yes. Freesias are not only a great choice for making bouquets, but they are very easy and simple to grow at home. So much so that even I can do it!

Freesias can be grown in either a border or post. Personally, I have always grown them in pots as they can then be moved around the garden. Because of their bright vibrant colours and sweet smells, you can make them a feature in your garden. By moving them around you can make your seating area a wonderful area of colour and smell to help you chill out and relax.

A Quick guide to how I planted my freesias last year.

  • Freesias like good quality soil. Ensure you don’t skimp on this bit as your freesias wont thank you!
  • Planting the bulbs, its normally suggested to be between 5-8 cm’s apart. I didn’t really listen to this and I placed them a bit closer together. I wanted to have a nice close bunch display.
  • It may sound silly, but freesias really like a good feed. For me, tomato feed that you mix when watering worked really well!

Freesias from the garden

For growing outside, freesias can be planted all year round. Their best flowering times for outside will be during summer months. If you are growing indoors or in a greenhouse then you will be able to get flowering plants most of the year round.

So im sure you are now asking why I am going through this when you are looking to get your friend or loved one a bunch of flowers. Well that’s the easy bit. Buying a bouquet of flowers isn’t always cheap. So, if you have some time, why not either grow some lovely colourful pots or baskets which will last a lot longer than cut flowers. Or you could fill your garden with beautiful sweet-smelling freesias and cut your own bouquets whenever you like!

From researching on the internet, it sounds like yellow, blue and white freesias will last longer than reds and picks when cut. Honestly don’t know what the difference is but there are numerous sites out there that mention this.
Just another few options that may be worth looking at if you did want to send freesias by post.

How best to arrange Bouquets of Freesias?

Freesias are quite hardy flowers in general but when arranged together with other flowers they can produce the most stunning bouquets. As freesias are such a versatile flower and with their beautiful bright vibrant colours, you can pretty much get away with grouping them with any other flowers and fillers. When you are selecting your freesias by post, ensure that you think about the other flowers that can be groupled together to arrange a beautiful bouquet.

The stems are the first place to start. Its best to trim away a lot of the foliage from around the bottom of the stems. This ensures that all the goodness keeps going up to the flowers themselves and isn’t wasted on the lower leaves. Once you have cleaned off the stems cut them to the desired height for your vase. Always ensure that you cut the ends at an angle. This really helps the stems to get the goodness from the water.

Freesias in a Vase - Freesias by post

The vase is again one of the more important parts of the flower arrangement. The vase is what sets off the flowers arrangement.

I brought some flowers home for my wife 1 day and thought I would surprise her. I arranged them in the vase and put them on the kitchen table. Apparently I got completely the wrong colour vase for the room. This was the first thing she noticed so off she went to put right my mistake!! I thought I had done a good job. Ill know better for next time!

When filling up the vase, always use room temperature water. Anything too cold may shock the flowers. Add in some simple plant food and your vase is ready.

A lot of people will start arranging the flowers in the vase. Others will keep them held tight in their hands and arrange them like this before placing them into the vase. There is no right or wrong way, just have fun, be creative and enjoy!

Once you have them how you want them, set them in the vase and sit back and enjoy the colour and the fresh fragrance that they bring to your house. Keep them topped up with fresh water and food to ensure your flowers stay fresh for as long as possible.

What colour Freesias smell best?

It is said that the more vibrant colours, yellow, white and red are some of the most fragrant freesia colours and will offer a much stronger aroma than pink freesias. If you want to fill your home with the sweet candy like aroma, then these beautifully scented freesias are probably my top choice. Mix the colours so that you will get something very visual as well as a strong fragrance to excite your nostrils.

Freesias are not only incredibly vibrant coloured flowers, but they have some very unique and distinctive fragrances too. With both colour and great aromas freesias can be a great way to add some sensory touches to your home.

Ordering your freesias by post is easy and once they start going over then there are still many other options to use them. Freesia flowers are also used a lot in candles and other household fragrances. Why not do a bit of research yourselves and see if you can use your freesia flowers in other ways to keep your home smelling fresh all year round.

Freesia Flowers

Where do Freesias come from?

Its widely unknown that freesias originated from South Africa. Freesias are also part of the Iris family of plants and at the last count there were around 14 different species known.

Freesias are a flower which are not associated with love and passion. The freesia is associated with friendship, innocence and trust. This makes it a great choice when choosing a bouquet of flowers for birthdays or celebrations. Freesias by post are a great choice if you are sending a beautiful bouquet of flowers.

The freesia got both their name and their association from 2 botanists. Christian P. Ecklon named the flowers after his good friend and fellow botanist Friedrich H.T. Freese. The name was given as a pure sign of trust and acknowledgement of their great mutual friendship.

Do Freesias have a symbolic meaning?

Freesias have numerous meanings and uses. They have always been popular flowers for sending to friends and families.

  • Freesias are the ultimate flowers to signify trust. This has been a tradition for many many years.
  • Freesias have always been a widely used choice for wedding flowers. Their great colours and fragrances are not the only reason they are chosen. Freesias represent trust, everything a marriage should have. White freesias also represent purity which when it comes to a wedding, is always a great choice to portray.
  • In certain countries, freesias are also the flowers to celebrate 7 years of marriage. Maybe this is the trust thing again alongside the ‘7 year itch’ saying that goes with all marriages??
Colourful Freesias

Its not only the flowers themselves that have a symbolic meaning. It goes down to the colours too.
As I mentioned above, white freesias are associated with weddings as the symbolise purity and innocence. White freesias also symbolise trust which all couples should have.

Multicolours bouquets are a sign of friendship and happiness. Multicoloured bouquets of freesias are always a great for giving to family and friends.

Pink Freesias have always been a favourite for mother’s day flowers. The pink colour symbolises eternal motherly love. I have to admit that on many occasions I have sent my mum pink freesias, not really knowing this fact – interesting!

Yellow freesias are purely fun! They symbolise joy, excitement and friendship. Perfect for any occasion and freesias by post are very easy to send!
