I thought I should write a little cautionary note for anyone considering the not-as-well know Teleflora.com.

Two years ago, I used them to deliver roses on Mothers’ Day, and they arrived wilted and half dead. When I contacted them about my dissatisfaction, they did not offer a replacement or refund- they offered me 10% off my subsequent order. I told them that this was not sufficient, and they offered no further solution, despite asking to have them replaced.

Needless to say, there was no second order. Stick to FTD, 1-800-FLOWERS, or your trusted local florist.
