Q. I didn’t receive the flowers I ordered
Many types of flowers are only available during certain seasons and this may vary depending on region and country. So, sometimes, our expert florists may need to substitute flowers, plants, or indeed packaging and sundry items, for another.
If we do need to substitute flowers for any reason, we will follow these guides to make sure your gift has the intended impact:
- Ensure any substitution is of the highest quality
- The colour and shape of the chosen product must take priority and no change in size or shape is permissible.
- The value of the replacement flower or plant will be equal to, or greater than, the original variety.
When a substitution is made, the utmost care is taken to provide flowers or plants which maintain the overall effect of the gift.

Help with: Caring for Flowers – Looking after your flowers
Q. How do I care for my flowers?
Our flowers are delivered to you in a box with a container inside holding the flowers and water, so when they arrive – there’s nothing more for you to do other than find a space to display and show off your gorgeous bouquet.
After 3 days, they will be thirsty so we advise you to fill up the container with some water and add in the packet of flower food so they can rehydrate and refuel.
Q. How long do my flowers last?
We would expect each bouquet to last for at least 7 days. There may be some flowers that have a naturally shorter life span which should last 5 days or longer.
