    Sending flowers from abroad

    Hi,
    I'm looking for a reliable good quality florist to order flowers from UK over the phone or internet for delivery in HK. Preferably, not overpriced

    Thank you for your help!

    Hi Alex!

    There are plenty of websites here, but compared to flower shops in Europe the HK "counterparts" are realy really expensive.
    When there is a special day people just don't care here and easily order flowers for 500, 800 or even more than 1000HK$.
    I think the main reason for this "rip-off" is the fact that locals don't like flowers from China that are available at a fraction of this money... so most of the flowers available here are imported ones from the Netherlands, America or so.

    Well, $500HK doesn't sound bad.. $800HK is borderline, I guess. Can you pls recommend a shop that you ha a positive experience with?
    Thank you!

    Alex,

    The Anglo Chinese florists are good. Not sure if you can order online.

    Thank you for all the pointers!
    Anglo Chinese - is that a name of the company? I don't mind calling

    Oh, I just saw the link to the Anglo Chinese store in the different tread.
    Never mind my last question and thank you!

    Flowers Update

    Thank you again for your advise. I ordered from Anglo-Chinese. They followed up the next day to confirm the order over the email. The flowers were delivered on time. The recipient loved the bouquet.
    I appreciate your help
