    Default How much would you pay for these flowers?

    Please could you let me know what you would genuinely expect to pay/ want to pay for the flowers in the pic?

    How much would you pay for these flowers?-dscf0013-2-.jpg

    They are not for sale, just pondering. After looking at sites that specialise and sell flowers and yes you can go on how they are seasonal, organic etc. but just wanted some 'real people' input.

    Thanks as always

    Oh they are lovely NG
    Probably would give 8 - 10 for those
    Hope that's not an insult

    They're beautiful, NG but I have no idea what I'd pay for them as I rarely buy flowers unless they're for delivery to someone far away.
    Sorry, I'm no help whatsoever

    Beautiful!

    I think its hard to say - If I was ordering them online I'd expect to pay more than if I was buying them local.

    I'd roughly expect at least 1 proper bloom per 1 plus the frilly bits

    Thank you all and no I am not insulted. The pic doesn't do the flowers any favours but at the same time you have proved my internal dilemma.

    I don't tend to buy flowers and I know they are a luxury item but would I spend 40-65 - No! I appreciate the comparisons are more polished and established brands but I have more homework to do. The cheapest bucket of blooms I can find is 35 (60 stems) the pic is of 50 stems.

    How would you sell your flowers, NG? By post or face to face? I think there's a big difference in people's expectations with postal flowers. They have to look good and arrive in perfect condition and your reliant on the delivery service to care for them.
