THE country’s first vending machine dispensing flowers proved particularly popular yesterday on the eve of Valentine’s Day, according to The Sun. Colourful bouquets were on show in the glass display and ranged in price from £18 to £24.
The ingenious service is available at Blackfriars Station in central London allowing forgetful commuters to pick up a bunch and avoid the wrath of their beloved partners.
Project manager Maurice Small, 45, from Chigwell in Essex said; “It’s great if you’ve forgotten to get something for Valentine’s Day or a birthday.” Wife Carrie agreed saying: “The quality and selection is really lovely.”
Scientist Grace Auld, 25, of the Scottish Borders, said: “I hope it catches on everywhere!”
