Don’t just dial Interflora, pick your posies from one of London’s independent fragrant florists, says Zena Alkayat.

  • Dawson Flowers

    Dawson Flowers, Lamb's Conduit Street, London, WC1 3NG

    Tucked away on Bloomsbury’s Lamb’s Conduit Street – a hotspot for indie shopping – Dawson Flowers inspires a loyal fanbase. Spontaneous romantics can rely on same-day London delivery as well as the option of adding Champagne and handmade truffles to their bouquet. Visit for Valentine's Day flower delivery.

  • Flor Unikon

    Flor Unikon, Amwell Street, London, EC1R 1XS

    This is the joint retail venture of a team of highly creative international florists, hailing from Holland and Scandinavia. As well as very stylish sprigs for boutique hotels and weddings, they do small bouquets which, unusually for independents, can be delivered same day (in London as well as Helsinki, should that be of use). Visit for Valentine's Day flower delivery. View the listing

  • The Flower Station

    The Flower Station, Rossmore Court, Park Road, London, NW1 6XU

    Tardy wooers attempting a post-work dash will be pleased to hear this nifty Marylebone florist is open 24/7 (its Islington branch stays open until 9pm). Blooms don’t come cheap, but they’re good quality, and delivery to any London postcode is free on Valentine’s Day. Visit for Valentine's Day flower delivery. View the listing

  • McQueens

    70-72 Old Street, London, EC1V 9AN

    For glamorous flowers, this is the place to call. Well regarded for showstopping event and wedding floristry (as well as for its adjoining school), McQueens is perfect for a polished, smart bouquet for your discerning loved one. Visit for Valentine's Day flower delivery. View the listing

  • Scarlet & Violet

    76 Chamberlayne Road, London, NW10 3JJ

    Kensal Rise locals would probably rather this deliciously pretty florist was a secret. Alas, Kate Moss ordered her wedding flowers here, effectively letting the cat out of the bag. Despite its newfound fame, it remains an ideal stop if you’re after natural-looking arrangements in vintage pots. View the listing

  • Nikki Tibbles Wild at Heart

    Turquoise Island, 222 Westbourne Grove, London, W11 2RH

    Ever wandered past the front of Liberty and admired the farmhouse-chic bouquets outside? They’re the work of Wild At Heart. Set up by Nikki Tibbles some 20 years ago, the original Westbourne Grove florist is a long-running local favourite, spreading the floral love with a second branch on Pimlico Road and concessions in Liberty and Harrods. Visit for Valentine's Day flower delivery. View the listing

  • Vive La Rose

    Royal Opera Arcade, London, SW1Y 4UY

    If only roses will do, then head directly to Vive La Rose. The Central London shop is a homage to the classic flower and manages to arrange the familiar stems in brilliantly inventive ways, from roses in vintage tins to stunning arrangements in pretty trugs and jugs. Visit for Valentine's Day flower delivery. View the listing

  • Covent Garden Academy of Flowers

    Slingsby Place, St Martin's Courtyard, London, WC2E 9AB

    This Covent Garden establishment is an expert in its field and you can expect precision arranged bouquets that come with creative flare. There's a shop upstairs stocking pretty gifts from vases to ornaments as well as a floral academy on the lower level. Courses here range from relaxed and social evening sessions (complete with wine) to more heavyweight options in floral design. View the listing

  • Orchidya

    Store Street, London, WC1E 7DB

    If roses make you squirm, try their characterful counterpart: the orchid. Orchidya is the only florist in the UK dedicated to the exotic blooms and most of its stock is grown in England. If you can't afford a grand bouquet, plump for a single potted plant in a striking colour. Visit for Valentine's Day flower delivery. View the listing

  • Dansk Flowers

    St Mary's Church, Upper Street, London, N1 2TX

    The variety is huge at this indie florist: from delicate, petite bouquets to grand and bold arrangements, it offers a bit of floral chic for every budget. For those who really want to get their money's worth, there's also a strong selection of potted plants at both this branch and the St John's Wood outpost. Visit for Valentine's Day flower delivery.
