(KCEN) -- Mother's Day is almost here, and we have some tips on how you can score some sweet deals on flowers.

Boxed fresh flowers straight from a grower can cost about half as much as those from a florist.

But mom will have to do the "arranging" so consider a single-bloom arrangement like tulips.

You can also save some money by ordering a few days ahead of time. Delivering a day or two in advance will save you some surcharges.

If you're going to see mom on Mother's Day, opt for in-store pickup at the florist and avoid delivery fees.

If you won't see her, aim for a florist near her home to reduce delivery charges.
