We generally deliver between 9am - 5pm but if you want your order delivered by a certain time (or if the recipient is leaving work early), please let us know when you order the flowers.
-Can we make your order bespoke?
Yes absolutely. If there's a particular colour or flower you know the recipient will love, let us know by writing it in the notes section of the website. If the flower is available, we'll include it in the bouquet.
-Do we use seasonal flowers?
Yes. We only use seasonal flowers and try to use local growers where we can. We sometimes use imported flowers for weddings and larger events.
-Can I add a note?
Yes absolutely, at the checkout there's a notes section for you to add a note and let us know what day you need them delivered.
-Do you deliver on public holidays?
Unfortunately not, we're only a small business to need a day off too.
-There can be a lot of plastic waste in the floral industry, how do you minimise that?
We're in the process of reducing our plastic waste to pretty much zero. We've ditched plastic bags (to wrap our flower stems when they're sent out on a courier) and using biodegradable ones instead. We're also taking all our plastic waste to the soft plastic recycle centre at Countdown. We'll also be phasing out floral foam too.
