The service received has been inconsistent but it has been good overall. The first time I received flowers they were absolutely beautiful and the lilies flowered and lasted over two weeks. The second bunch I ordered as a gift for my mum's birthday, they came with roses browning at the edges, and three lilies which had had their pollen stems cut off! I did get in touch with customer services and they assured me that the bouquets go through 5 quality checks (which I found very surprising, especially considering no-one noticed the cut stems on all three lilies in the bunch) but they were very understanding as we had a family emergency which meant my mum wasn't around to 'enjoy' the bunch anyway, so they kindly rearranged delivery. This bunch arrived on time and with lots of lilies, some unopened which was lovely but there was a lot of greenery and not much by way of flowers and some fresia looked old and again some roses were browning, so the bunch did not last longer than a week, sadly.
First time using Serenata to send to Canada from UK, flowers arrived next day as I had requested, recipient said 'perfect timing' so obviously hadn't arrived very early or very late, she found it unusual to arrive in a box but said they were displayed beautifully within the box so great when first opening, when displaying needed two vases as there were so many flowers so she was very pleased. She mentioned there were lilies which was not in my choice so will be interesting to see the photos being sent by recipient. Overall though as usual very pleased with the service. Would have liked a notification that she received them and when but perhaps as this was Canada not possible.
I could not fault the quality of the service or the goods provided. I have had frustrating experiences with other companies then my daughter recommended Serenata. I won't be using anyone else from now on! The flowers were to congratulate a friend on her recent marriage. She rang to say how delighted she was with the bouquet. I had upgraded to a medium size and she said the blooms filled two large vases. She also said that they lasted a really long time and that the lilies perfumed the whole house. I was also pleased that there was no delivery charge!
I had received some flowers from serenata for my birthday a few weeks before and they were beautiful and lasted ages. So I thought I would order some as a surprise for my sisters 80th birthday. They were absolutely gorgeous and great value at Â£30. When I went to see her, you could smell the freesia's as soon as you went in the house. Although the roses and freesia have died off, she still has the lilies which smell so sweet. Thank you.

excellent service, fast delivery good price of flowers
also flowers were brilliant just what i had wanted for the two mothers who are no longer with us but both liked their own different flower, lilies and roses these were perfect for our home and still going strong after all these weeks still in full bloom
Very good that Serenata were able to deliver within hours on Christmas Eve. The bunch looked attractive when delivered, but some of the flowers did not last well. I was surprised that some of the chrysanthemums were dead at the end of a week, when this flower normally lasts well. The lilies were good after ten days.
Friend delighted with quality and arrangement of flowers, said she only had to put them straight into vase as in little container, also delighted lilies didn't smell, she'd normally cut off stamens as finds perfume too overpowering. Flowers lasted a very long time.
Lily or lilies are known as Lilium, a flowering plant which grows from bulbs with large impressive flowers. Not all flowers that are referred to as lilies actually belong to this category and are true lilies. Lilies can growth to a length between 60 and 180 cm. The bulbs from which they grow can have various forms – for example they can be naked (or tunicless), rhizomes with number of small bulbs or stolons. Lilies come in various colours, for example white, yellow, pink, red, orange, traditional white and even purple (resembling almost black). As with orchids, lilies also have their unique marks which are in form of spots or brush strokes. If you want lilies in your garden, keep in mind they flower in spring or late summer. The species of lilies can be divided into six sections, according to plant taxonomy: Daurolirion, Leucorilion, Sinomartagon, Archelirion, Liriotypus, Pseudolirium, Martagon.
How do you take care of your lilies? If you're using them as cut flowers in display, it's pretty simple. Make sure you start with a clean vase, take your lilies and cut about 3cm from the bottom at a 45 degree angle. This ensures that the area of the plant exposed to the water is larges, so it can take in a lot more water. Cut with clean scissors. Place the lilies in vase, add fresh water and flower food. Keep them away from draft and too hot places in your home. Replace the water every couple of day to extend the lifespan of lilies. That's just few of the florist tricks to extend the life of your flowers.
