CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN: THE BEST VALUE RED ROSES 

A bunch of red roses is a Valentine’s Day classic, but unless the time is taken to shop around romantic Brits could be paying prices up to 221% higher than the cheapest bouquet.

Research from leading savings site, VoucherCodes.co.uk, analysed the cost of a bunch of 12 red roses sold online to find the retailer that provides the most bang for your buck.

Of the retailers studied, BloomPost.co.uk offers the cheapest dozen at only £14.95 or £1.25 per single rose. Funky Pigeon follows behind at £19.99 per dozen, equating to £1.67 per stem – but this is still 34% more expensive than the cheapest option.

Next, eflorist, Marks & Spencer and Waitrose all provide bouquets for £25 and under, however this could cost up to 67% more than the cheapest available option.
