Our goal is to facilitate the best flower delivery service possible. Flowers are hand made to order and hand-delivered from a member florist covering the local area. If a member florist is not available in the local area then your order will be hand made by a florist and delivered by a courier. The charge for delivery is £5.99 for future day and £7.99 for same day. Sunday delivery is £9.99 and we can also offer a range of priority delivery options depending on the delivery location.
Orders for same-day delivery can be placed up to 14:45. However, we may be able to arrange a same-day delivery after that time for orders placed by telephone - this depends on driver availability for the required location.
Exceptions to the usual same day service. There are times when we need to change the cut-off for taking same-day delivery orders. These include peak periods such as Christmas, Valentines Day and Mothers Day when high order volumes mean we may need to cut off early to ensure all currently accepted orders can be delivered in a timely fashion.
There are also certain locations that may have an early cut-off due to the distance from the delivering florist or that the florist is closed at that time.
We strive to update the order calendar with live information relative to the required delivery location and all our phone order staff can provide up to date delivery information during the order process.
Providing us with as much contact information as possible is helpful so that in the unlikely event that we have a delivery related issue we can contact you.
Although it is sometimes possible for us to arrange delivery of funeral flowers on the same day we encourage our customers not to request this.
Please note that not all areas are covered by a same-day delivery service. This is usually affected by the availability of the network member florist covering the local area - if this service is not available we will contact you to offer an alternative delivery date.
The delivery calendar on the product detail page shows the available delivery dates for each item.
We strive to update the order calendar with live information relative to the required delivery location but please provide us with as much contact information as possible so that in the unlikely event that we have a delivery related issue we can contact you.
Funeral orders are the only orders that have specific time slots for and we ask for a service time during the order process.
On all standard orders we do not guarantee specific delivery times. This is due to the fact that an order has to be worked into a delivery schedule and route for a driver.
Any requests for specific delivery times whilst placing a phone order are not guaranteed but are passed onto the network member florist. We always try to accommodate specific requests as best we can.
Orders placed where a premium is paid for PRIORITY DELIVERY are guaranteed - this facility is currently only available for orders place by phone.
With the exception of Mothers Day, Sunday delivery is only available for orders that are delivered via the DPD courier service. There may be an additional delivery supplement - if applicable, this will be shown on the checkout page.
With the exception of funeral flowers, all orders are delivered between 9 am and 6 pm.
PRIORITY DELIVERY. If you require a delivery within a particular time frame we can arrange a priority delivery service. This guarantees the delivery within a 3 hour time frame from 9am onwards. Priority delivery can only be arranged over the telephone. If you have ordered online and wish to add this please give us a call. Please note at busy periods we may not be able to offer this service.
If you request a preference for a delivery time by asking a member of staff to add a driver note whilst placing a phone order then we will try our best to meet your request - but this is not guaranteed.
We will deliver your order during the hours of 9 am and 6 pm with the exception of priority and funeral deliveries. If there is no one in at the given address the flowers will be left either with a neighbour or in a safe place or failing that taken back to the shop. A card will be left for the recipient advising of the course of action taken. Although a telephone number is not essential it can be very helpful to the drivers.
Deliveries are made between 9 am and 5 pm with the exception of PRIORITY and FUNERAL deliveries. If you have provided a ‘finishing time’ for delivery to a work address this is passed on to the driver and they will try their best to accommodate this. In the case of a delivery to non-residential addresses, a signature of a member of staff at the address will be accepted as proof the delivery has been made. Please note that in this time of heightened security certain companies insist on deliveries being made to a post/delivery room or reception area.
If you require a delivery within a particular time frame we can arrange a priority delivery service. This guarantees the delivery within a 3 hour time frame from 9am onwards. Priority delivery can only be arranged over the telephone. If you have ordered online and wish to add this please give us a call. Please note at busy periods we may not be able to offer this service.
Funeral flowers are usually delivered to the director handling the funeral - if you don't have that information available we can try to find that for you. Tributes can be delivered to the residential address that the funeral is leaving from, but please try to ensure that the person at the address is aware of the pending delivery. Delivery to places of worship/crematoriums etc is available but not recommended as there is often no one available to accept the delivery. DELIVERY TIMES. We ask for the funeral time during the order process (if you are not sure we will check for you). Usually, deliveries are made approx. 2 hours prior to the service time. We will liase with the funeral director if neccessary and make any ammendments to the delivery scedule accordingly.
During peak trading periods we are very busy so may not be able to offer a priority delivery service. Please call us and we will advise. During these times we may need to stop taking orders earlier than our advertised time. Due to the volume of deliveries at these times we are unable to track orders manually.
If an email address is provided at the time of order then you will have the facility to track your order online. The tracking does not give live updates and we are unable to give live updates over the telephone. Although times requested are taken into consideration these are not guaranteed unless a priority delivery has been chosen or a time agreed with a member of staff.
Our friendly members of staff have all the knowledge to answer just about any questions you may have and here are their pictures so you can put a face to the voice on the telephone!
