All local deliveries are undertaken in 'Olive' our Defender usually between 12-3 Mon-Sat. We offer a free delivery service within Wilton and charge £9 to deliver within a 10 mile radius. If you would like a same day delivery, please order before 11.
It is expected the recipient will be in to accept the delivery, if they're not we'll try to seek a safe place to leave the gifts. This could be with a neighbour or undercover somewhere such as an outbuilding. We carry a supply of containers and water so will ensure flowers are well hydrated. If it's too hot/windy/snowy, the delivery address has no front garden and there are no obliging neighbours, we'll take the delivery back to our shop in Wilton for collection. In all circumstances the driver will post a note through the letterbox to let the recipient know.
All deliveries are accompanied by a hand written personal message where requested by the sender.
CUT FLOWER CARE
Avoid putting vases in the dishwasher as salt deposits can kill flowers.
Bleach vases to destroy bacteria.
No need for flower food (as it can also help grow bacteria) just keep the water clean.
Cut stems diagonally to increase the stem surface area so the flowers drink more.
Keep leaves above the water line to avoid them decaying in the water and shortening the life of your flowers.
Keep flowers in a cool place away from direct sunlight.
Replace water and re-cut the stems regularly.
