Delivery requests for Friday/Saturday/Sunday or Monday dates will be posted on Thursdays but only if ordered before 1pm. Tuesday delivery requests will be posted on Mondays but if you choose standard delivery we cannot guarantee they will arrive overnight unless you choose the next day delivery service. In the unlikely event of any unavailability of colours we will substitute with the closest matching colour available.

All flowers are priced with standard delivery. This service is non guaranteed. Delivery can take 2-3 days depending on location in the UK the flowers are being delivered to.
