Tesco is a world-renowned retailer of many products, and now offers a range of flowers and plants which can be purchased as gifts online. You get the usual Tesco quality of service, plus free next day delivery on flower orders. You can also gain Clubcard points, add a message to your delivery and read reviews from previous customers.
Let’s start with some of the positives of Tesco Flowers. Firstly, their flowers all come with free next day delivery. This requires that you make your order by 5pm, but that’s a couple of hours more generous than other sites, which often require you to order by 3pm. If you’d rather pick up your flowers at a store, that’s possible. This means you can check the quality and ask for support in person if you need it. However, you will have to make it to the store, whereas the website’s free delivery means you can sit at home in your dressing gown eating ice cream, so it’s up to you!
Secondly, you can gain Clubcard points when you purchase flowers on this site. If you’re a regular Tesco customer then this may be a nice little extra. And talking of extras, some bouquets come with a free glass vase and flower food to make sure your purchase stays as fresh and healthy as possible. All orders include a presentation box. Once you’ve chosen your flowers you can add a personal message for free, which is a pleasant touch (albeit in no way exclusive to Tesco).
Those few options aside, there aren’t a lot of add-ons through Tesco Flowers. You can’t increase the bouquet size on demand or request for other gifts to be delivered as part of your order. This does make the whole process feel a bit clinical rather than celebratory, which could be important if you want to make an impact on the person receiving the flowers. That said, you can still order gifts through the site but they may not arrive with your flowers.
In terms of choice, TescoFlowers is also a bit limited by the range of bouquets they offer. At the time of our review, there were only 20 bouquets and 5 plants to choose from. Whilst the sorting and search features might be useful, they became somewhat pointless with so few options.
Because Tesco is such a popular company, they have plenty of customers. This means that you can check quite a lot of reviews of their products, including their flowers. Generally, the star rating reviews were very positive but when we tried to click on them to read more, we were consistently sent do a blank page. This is frustrating because we were really keen to know what the customers thought of their purchases, as we’re sure other potential customers might be.
Everything taken into account, Tesco offers an affordable and quick service for ordering flowers. However, because you can’t really personalise your order, it feels as though it lacks some heart. Their range is also limited when compared to other flower delivery websites, meaning that you may wish to expand your search elsewhere. That considered, if you do find a bouquet you like the look of, and it’s the flowers that matter (more than the add-ons and options) then Tesco Flowers might be a good option for you.
