Mother's Day marks the beginning of British springtime for many and, this year, we're keener than ever to brave the (let's be honest) chilly weather to see the daffodils and snowdrops. For women across the UK, March 14 is also one of the only days where having a lie-in, a cuppa, and a bouquet of flowers delivered is obligatory.

For supermarkets and independent florists, Mother’s Day marks the start of the season for British-grown flowers. Many outlets will compete to produce gloriously fragrant and colourful bouquets (many for a steal) that vary enormously, from pastel-hued stocks to vivid roses.

We've picked our favourite blooms to celebrate the women in your life.
