FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
Answers to all the most common questions our florists get asked
What's the difference between a Bouquet and a Hand-Tied?
A Bouquet is flowers arranged flat in gift wrap, they will require re-cutting and placing in water when you receive them. A Hand-Tied is gift wrapped in a bubble of water so there is no need to worry about getting your flowers into a vase strait away, they will be ok like this for a couple of days.
What if the recipient is out when you deliver?
If they're out, the delivery driver may be able to leave your order in a safe place.
