When you place your order you will be asked to choose the date on which you would like your flowers to be delivered. Please do order in advance as we get booked up very quickly.
All our fresh edible flowers are picked and despatched by overnight courier for delivery between 8am and 12 noon the following day. The couriers will delivery between Tuesdays and Saturdays. Couriers work long hard hours and don't have time to waste so please be available to sign for the flowers or name a place where they can be left safely. This is done at your own risk though.
We recommend using the flowers as fresh as possible. So for a wedding or other special event please order them to arrive the day before you are going to use them as they will be fine kept in the fridge in their punnets overnight. Thank you!
