If there’s one thing we’re missing more than anything right now, it’s heading to the local market to buy a bouquet of blooms for a mid-week pick-me-up. Little did we know that we can still get our floral fix even during lockdown thanks to several of our favourite florists opening up their services online.

Whether you fancy getting a bunch of perennials to add a splash of colour to your dining table or you’re delivering a bouquet to a loved one who you miss, here’s eight of our favourite florists who are still delivering their pretty petals to your door.

Rebel Rebel

Come rain or shine, Rebel Rebel will always put a smile on our face with their blooms that are bursting with bright colours, and now they’re even helping to bring us a splash of spring during the covid-19 pandemic.

While their doors remain closed, their talented team can be found creating their beautiful bunches at home that you can purchase by ordering through their online delivery service. We also love that their delivery bunch is called ‘don’t let it get you down’, an important pick-me-up message we could all us during this time.

That Flower Shop

Founded back in 2012 by Hattie Fox, That Flower Shop has become the only flower shop on any East Londoners lips, and for good reason. Their seasonal stems are wildly beautiful and expertly put together, making them perfect for a little pick-me-up or special occasion.

Right now, they’re still operating at a reduced rate online, selecting only the finest cuts from Hattie’s personal patch in Kent and other British growers’ seasonal stems. Deliveries are currently running on Tuesdays and Fridays, so it’s perfect for a mid-week treat or to add a splash of colour to your weekend.

Grace & Thorn

Helping to redefine everything you once thought about floristry and pretty perennials is Hackney-based florist, Grace & Thorn.

Grace & Thorn has been helping to change the way city dwellers see nature since opening their doors back in 2011, through their dancing bouquets and wild blooms, drawing inspiration from Dutch masters, and they’re continuing to their tradition with their pivot to online delivery too so you can enjoy a fresh bunch while you’re stuck inside.

Expect shabby chic bunches of seasonal wild cuts or go all out and invest in a new statement vase for your windowsill.


Causing quite the floral impact since 1991, McQueens Flowers have become renowned internationally for their beautiful designs, creative studios and inspiring workshops. With the belief that every flower has a story to tell, McQueens can be seen dispersing their  decorative bouquets and seasonal flowers to doors up and down the country.

Expect specially curated cuts and floristry masterpieces to come to life, helping to add a splash of colour to your home.

Bloom & Wild

You’ve all heard us rave about Bloom & Wild’s delivery service before. These guys are the OGs of letterbox flower deliveries, helping you to spread joy to those you love from afar and now seems an even more prevalent time to spark happiness with a bunch of blooms.

Every bud is individually wrapped to avoid crushing and to protect their stems too, and every letterbox package comes with fun little styling tips too. Perfect for any occasion or midweek treat.


Whatever the occasion, big or small, Floom has you covered with their thoughtfully selected bouquets and hand-written messages.

Working with local florists near to you, you’ll receive a truly personal service when using Floom and a bundle of perennials that you won’t be able to help but fall in love with. Treat your mum, best friend or nan today with a bunch to get them through this difficult time.

Nikki Tibbles Wild At Heart

You may have had the luxury of seeing one of Nikki Tibbles Wild at Heart’s beautiful bouquets at the last wedding you went to, but you can now get your own hand-tied set delivered to your door.

Whether you’re looking for a seasonal number or fancy going all out with their enchanted selection, dedicated to the wild florals, you won’t regret getting your hands on one of these beautiful bouquets.


Wherever you’re self isolating, whether it’s along the South Downs coast line or in the townhouses of Chelsea, down by the shores in Devon or up in Leeds, Petalon guarantees you’ll be getting your pretty petalled blooms the very next day, and the packaging is entirely recyclable or biodegradable too. Winner.
