For hospital deliveries- due to ongoing Covid restrictions we cannot in most instances make the delivery straight to the recipient’s ward and we rely on the hospital reception staff to deliver your flowers (please understand this is not their job however they do this as a courtesy).

We will always leave the flowers in a discreet and shady spot in a composable cup of water if no one is home.

9. HOW DO I BEST TAKE CARE OF MY FLOWERS?
It’s important to put your flowers in fresh water as soon as possible. Removing any lower greenery so that no leaves will sit in the water. Trim the stems every two days and change the water as well, making sure the vase is clean each time. Display your flowers in a cool spot, away from direct sunlight, heat sources and fruit bowls. Some flowers will fade faster than others, removing these will help keep your remaining flowers stay healthy and alive.

12. HEAT AND EXTREME WEATHER
While our amazing delivery drivers will try their hardest to ensure your flowers arrive in perfect condition, occasionally circumstances outside of our control, such as severe weather conditions which can negatively impact flowers. If no one is home to accept the flower delivery we always find a safe, shaded place (if available) to leave the flowers in a biodegradable cup of water unless the order is our vase arrangement. This is our policy for all deliveries including in cases of heat and extreme weather, we won’t be held responsible for any resulting damage. We recommend that either you ensure your recipient is at home to accept delivery between 12pm and 5:30pm or you provide a work delivery address in times of severe weather.
While we try our best for all daily bunches to include the same flowers, occasionally, we may have to substitute flowers to equal or higher value flowers. Substitutes can happen due to factors out of our control, but we always deliver bunches that reflect quality and our signature garden style.
