One of the earliest known U.S.-based flower delivery services, Florists Telegraph Delivery Service (FTD) was created in 1910 with the initial goal of helping retailers expand their businesses, according to Society of American Florists. The company provided wire deliveries of flowers — allowing members of FTD to use telegraphs to exchange flowers with each other.

Fast forward over 100 years later, there are a variety of different online companies that have emerged with the aim of delivering flowers in new, modern ways.

Reasons for using flower delivery services

- Convenience and ease

- Several delivery options

- Flowers are handled and delivered with care

- Preserve quality and freshness of floral arrangements

What to look for when choosing a flower delivery service

Other added bonuses include add-ons such as vases, cards or notes, and other sentimental touches that can be added to your delivery.
