In the aftermath of what was a disaster Valentines Day for some, South Africans took to social media to call online flower and gift delivery service, Netflorist, out on their poor service.
The service has been under fire for failing to deliver flowers at all, delivering dead bouquets, lying about the progress of the delivery and simply not answering their calls.
South Africans were appalled by the company, which claims to be voted number “best florist.” Angered at being put in the dog box by their loved ones for not meeting the Valentines Day standard, South Africans shared their complaints on social media.
One Twitter user says she ordered her bouquet seven days before Valentines Day but it simply did not arrive. She adds that they won’t even answer her calls or respond to emails.
Mncedisisi Qwalana wrote that the company did not deliver his flowers at all and couldn’t even call to explain that there was a problem. He also says their number wasn’t working, Briefly.co.za found.
Another user, Kgaugelo added that although he’s order was delivered and in okay condition, it wasn’t actually what he had expected.

Robert Franco also added that he spent R979 for a bouquet of 12 wilting roses. Another user expressed his frustration, joking that he should have just gone to the men’s conference because his lady was on her way home and there was still no flowers.
