International Delivery

Due to the additional customs fees, surcharges and taxes imposed on our products as a result of the UK leaving the EU, we have regrettably suspended all international deliveries while we search for solutions that will allow us to offer the same great cost effective services to our international customers.

We are sorry for any disappointment this causes in the meantime.

Bulk Orders

We welcome bulk orders of all sizes, but please note larger orders may require additional handling time, depending on order qty and our workload at the time. Please contact us prior to placing your bulk order for details regarding our multiple shipping address options and delivery timescales.

Packaging

To ensure your item arrives in perfect condition, our Bouquets are cellophane wrapped and expertly packed in to well fitting extra-strong double corrugated cardboard boxes and void-filled to eliminate movement during transit
