Forget those same old flowers that so many florists use to pad-out bouquets. You won’t find any carnations of baby’s breath here.

These eco-friendly flower-sellers ensure that all their blooms come directly from farms, which means that your flowers will arrive as fresh as possible. Also, the fact that they remove the middleman means that those savings are passed to you. So that’s pretty neat, right? Oh and if you're after something a little more long-lasting, opt for delivery of one of the ‘dried collection’ options and your blooms will last for up to a year, a nice alternative for Valentine's Day. Express your never-dying love.

With shops in both Brooklyn and Soho, Julia Testa’s designer flowers are available across NYC with same-day delivery. They might not be the most budget-friendly of the bunch – most arrangements cost more than $75 – but man, oh man, are they beautiful. We love the unconventional asymmetrical shapes of many of their bouquets.
