About Arena Flowers
Welcome to Arena Flowers – one of the leading online florists in the UK, offering the highest quality flowers from around the world at excellent prices. All of Arena Flowers’ bouquets and flower arrangements are not only beautiful and fresh, but also affordable and great value – as flowers should be.
We believe that flowers in the UK have been overpriced for too long and that UK flower lovers are not getting what they deserve in terms of flower and bouquet quality. We believe that at Arena Flowers we’re different, because we cut out all the wholesalers and middlemen that add time and money to your flowers, and because we strive to give the best possible experience to our customers.
So, when you buy an Arena Flowers bouquet, the flowers will reach you or your intended recipient several days fresher than if they had come from almost any other UK florist. Plus you won’t feel you’ve had to pay a king’s ransom for your flowers.

Arena Flowers' Awards
We've also won a few awards, both for our services and our floristry. In 2008 we won the Silver Gilt medal at the Royal Horticultural Society's flower show at Hampton Court Palace. See our other awards.
Where do our flowers come from?
Our buying team purchase Arena’s flowers from the largest flower auction in the world, the Westland auction in Holland. They don’t just look out for great deals on flowers and plants for our customers, but also ensure that the flowers we sell meet our ethical policy and quality standards.
A significant benefit of sending flowers with Arena Flowers is that you will know exactly where they came from – your flowers come from us.
Strange as it may sound, that isn’t the case with relay organisations (such as Interflora) that will take your order and pass it on to an unidentified partner, via taking a healthy commission, of course. It is therefore impossible for relay organisations to guarantee value for money, quality, freshness or provenance of flowers.
At Arena Flowers we will only ever relay an order on the rare occasion that we are not able to fulfill an order ourselves with our own flowers and distribution – usually when customers have an urgent need.

What’s it like to be an Arena flower?
Life is sweet for an Arena flower. Our flower stems are purchased, conditioned and brought to the UK within 18 hours of being cut. When flowers arrive at Arena Flowers HQ they are conditioned again, our florists then work their magic and the flowers are sent to our customers as soon as they’re ready.
Whereas most florist shop bouquets will be have been sitting in buckets, wilting for many days in a heated shop before they are sold, so they won’t look as beautiful or last nearly as long in your vase as ours.
So how do we do things so quickly? Because we buy our flowers from flower auctions every day and don’t go through any middlemen, we can keep storage as short as possible so our customers get the best flowers. Guaranteed.
An Arena Flowers bouquet can easily be handed to you by our driver less than 40 hours after our flowers were still in the ground growing.
Quite often we get a really great deal on flowers. At such times, we pass on these savings to our customers in the form of special offers, via email or SMS (to your mobile). In our email newsletter we also announce cool new features and provide information from the world of flowers. What we don’t ever do is spam our customers.

Our Mission and Our Team
Arena Flowers was set up in early 2006, when we got fed up with the level of service and product quality available from online flower shops and decided someone should try to do it better. Our mission is to provide our customers with an excellent quality product at a fair price (fair to the customer, fair to us and fair to the grower), all with first-class service and absolute attention to detail. If we do this well, we believe we will make both the sender and the receiver happy and that will make us happy too.
Our team has vast experience in the world of flowers and flower delivery, plus we found some brainy boffins to help us build the site. We hope you like it. We are continuously trying to improve the site and our service, so that we can keep offering the absolute best to our customers. We have a few ideas for new features and products that we think our customers might like but we’d love to hear from you with any ideas or other thoughts (firstname.lastname@example.org). Don’t be shy!
