Definition of products
Our products refer to flowers, plants, vases, pots and/or cards sold or supplied by our floral studio.

Contactless Deliveries
We would like to assure you that we are taking all measures to ensure the safety of our customers and staff during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

Our staff are following very strict guidance of hygiene practices and social distancing at these unprecedented times.

In the short term, all of our deliveries will be “contactless” meaning that your delivery will not be signed for by the recipient, and will be placed at the door for the recipient to retrieve. If we have the phone number of the recipient, we will call them on our arrival to advise that we have a delivery, so that they can retrieve the delivery from their door. If no answer, or no phone number has been given, our staff will knock at the door, and then stand back from the door to carry out the delivery. Our staff will take the name of the receiver which will be noted on the delivery sheet.

Any deliveries to aged care homes will follow the protocols put in place by the aged care home, and our staff will be following strict hygiene practices.

We will also update our policies, based on current updates by the Australian Government and health authorities.

On-line purchases and products
We always endeavour to source our fresh flowers on the day of delivery. They are supplied to you professionally trimmed and conditioned for optimal longevity. Flowers are a product of nature and their natural life span will vary depending on a number of factors, including the specific floral variety, environmental factors and care. As a general guide, fresh flowers will look their best for between 7-10 days (and will still look great for some time thereafter). Some floral varieties such as wildflowers can last up to 2 weeks with the correct care.

Due to seasonal availabilities and market demand, we may need to substitute an alternative variety of flower (to what is shown on our website) to fulfil your order. We will always do our best to source similar and like-coloured substitutes. Where this is necessary, we will contact you to discuss before confirming your order. In the event you are not satisfied with any alternatives offered, you will be given a full refund.

General care guidelines
To maintain the longevity of your flowers, please follow the instructions set out below. Please note that failure to comply with these instructions will void our ‘Satisfaction Guarantee’.
1) Gently unwrap flowers and trim about 2cm diagonally from the end of the stems upon receiving them
2) Place flowers in clean vase with fresh water and making sure all stems are at least 2-3 itches below water level
3) Change water every 2 days, adding flower food in accordance with labelled instructions also helps (1 sachet provided). Please ensure you also clean the vase
4) Keep flowers away from direct sunlight, air-conditioning vents and/or heat sources

Replacements and refunds
We take a great deal of pride in the quality of our products. As part of our ‘Satisfaction Guarantee’, if you feel your flowers (and/or other products) have not met your expectations, please contact us within 48 hours of receipt to discuss a replacement or refund. We may require a photograph of the flowers and reserve the right to physically inspect the flowers prior to arranging a replacement or refund.

Note that our ‘Satisfaction Guarantee’ is subject to the general care guidelines outlined above.
