Introducing the easiest, most convenient way to bring the joy of flowers into your life!
Flowers are brilliant, aren't they?
They brighten up any room they're in. They smell great. And when you have a rubbish day you can always count on them to raise your spirits a little.
But waiting around for a regular flower delivery all day can be a pain. And finding great flowers is hard, especially if you live somewhere without a decent florist.
So we've made it simple.
Tell us how often you'd like your flowers. We'll go directly to the flower auctions and pick the freshest, most beautiful stems we can find and design a bouquet. Then we'll cut, prepare and pack them snugly into a special box that fits straight through your letterbox.
If you choose a subscription, subsequent ongoing deliveries will be charged and made at the time interval you choose – whether that’s a week, a fortnight or a month from your first order. You can skip deliveries if you're away and manage your subscription easily using your online Vela account.
All subscriptions are delivered on a Friday.
The minimum subscription length is 3 deliveries.
Our flowers are sent out via Royal Mail. We use Royal Mail Tracked 24 delivery, which is free for our customers.
Please note - currently, Royal Mail are experiencing some minor delays. Whilst 90% of deliveries are delivered on time, some blooms may arrive a little later than expected - but don’t worry, with a trim and some fresh water they’ll perk up in no time!
Our uniquely designed bouquets stay fresher for longer
We arrive at the flower auction at around 4 in the morning every delivery day. Trust us, getting up that early isn't easy (especially in the winter!) but it's worth it because we can make you a bouquet that looks better, and lasts longer, than your typical shop-bought variety.
You'll already know that some flowers just cope better in certain conditions. Maybe they won't grow quite as well in autumn, or others won't cope as well with the intense heat of summer.
Picking and designing our bouquets on the day of delivery, instead of to a pre-designed formula, means we can create something unique that truly fits the season. Your flowers will look better and last longer because of it.
Also, we cut out a lot of steps between the grower's fields and your home. Flowers will often make multiple stops before they eventually end up in a high-street florist or supermarket. Whereas Vela flowers are sent to you on the very same day they arrive in the country.
