So, what exactly are letter box flowers? Well, the name says it all! They’re blooms packaged in long and thin cardboard boxes, which can be popped straight through the recipient's letterbox, just like regular mail. So, will the flowers fit through the letter box? Yes, and without a doubt, that’s their main appeal! After all, you don’t need to worry about the delivery man leaving your package on the porch or doorstep. It will be placed indoors and wait there for its recipient to find it and explore the contents of the box.
Types of letter box flowers
What kind of flowers can be mailed and delivered through the letter box? It’s worth remembering that letter boxes have specified dimensions, and each package also needs to be in the correct size so it can fit into the slot. That’s why we recommend only certain types of letter box flowers, which are smaller and can be laid in the parcel with some extra room. The blooms are usually sold while they’re still in buds. One of the reasons is their smaller size, which allows them to fit perfectly through every letterbox. But another bonus is the fact that they will last longer, and the recipient of the gift will be able to watch them bloom. It’s a win, win! Among the most popular types of flowers, we can include myriad Roses, Hypericums, Statices, Freesias, Antirrhinums, Carnations, Lilies, Aster whites, Solidagos, Cotinus, Alstroemerias, Irises and others.
Extra safety during delivery
Do flowers survive well in the post? Yes, they do. The box is made from stiff and resistant cardboard, so you can be sure nothing will get squished during the journey to the recipient. On top of that, blooms are carefully secured within the package to maximize their safety. Once they are delivered to the chosen address, the recipient can take them out of the parcel and place them in the water. Of course, the flowers can then be arranged exactly how they would like them.
How to care for flowers through the letter box?
How long will the flowers last? In the box, you will find only freshly cut blooms, which should stay looking attractive for several days. However, the precise time frame will depend mainly on the aftercare and how fast the flowers will be placed in the water. Of course, the quicker, the better. It’s crucial to regularly change the water as well and cut the stem a little bit each time so they can absorb the liquid more efficiently.
