Tesco Flowers

FlowersThis blog post may sound like another advert for Tesco… In actual fact, it pretty much is.

I’m a member of Tesco’s Orchard Program. Through this program, I receive money off vouchers for products, and in return need to tweet on twitter, share on facebook, write blog posts etc. Also I receive club card points too which can be redeemed for cash.

For a company wishing to promote their brands further, I think it’s quite a good way to have lots of SEO and inbound links to your site. There’s agencies out there which do all the management for you, from the looks of it, Tesco uses BzzAgent.

There’s a few places which you can buy flowers from Tesco. Firstly there’s in-store, plus there’s also online. I prefer to buy flowers in store rather than online, I guess that’s because I like to look at them before buying, plus I don’t trust Royal Mail to deliver anything as delicate as flowers. I’m sure if you did order them, these would be well packed so they do not arrive damaged.

However looking online, there is quite a range – View full range.

My local store has quite a range as you walk in the front door, with prices between £3 and £15. There’s also a selection of potted plants.

With the fresh flowers, I try to take care of them and they seem to last a lot longer than the guaranteed life. Tesco have some tips on their website here, however this is what I do:

  • Cut stems diagonally just above the knot near the bottom
  • Split stems upwards by about an inch.
  • Top up with either sugar water or lemonade regularly
  • Make sure there are no leaves in the water (these go mouldy)
