Retirement FAQs

What flowers are good for a retirement bouquet?
While there's no specific flower that means retirement, there are flowers that have meanings related to it. Carnations, sunflowers and solidago mean 'good luck', as does holly. If you want to say 'thank you' to a colleague for their hard work before retiring, a bouquet with campanulas, lilies, or peach and pink roses is a great choice, as all these flowers are symbols of gratitude and thankfulness.
Why are Arena Flowers flowers fresher and better value?
Our flowers are fresher and better value than almost any other UK florist for a number of reasons. We purchase our flowers direct from the flower auctions in Holland, cutting out several commission-taking middlemen along the way. We buy in reasonable volume, so we are able to get better prices on behalf of our customers. And we haven't got fancy, showy offices to support! Also, our flowers spend only a short period of time in our fridge before going out as we buy every day instead of once a week like the vast majority of florists. This all means that you will get better value flowers that have spent far less time in transit if you buy from Arena Flowers than you would almost anywhere else.
What are Arena Flowers shipping and delivery policies?
In the unlikely event of any problems with any order you place with us we will either resend or refund your order. For further information, please see our comprehensive flower delivery policies page, the terms and conditions of use of the site, and our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.
When will the flowers arrive?
Our general delivery times are between 8.00am and 6.00pm. We also offer timed delivery options, depending on the region you are sending to. These can be seen in our checkout.
