What if the recipient is not home for delivery?
If a Letterbox Bouquet has been purchased and your recipient has a standard letterbox, then your recipient does not need to be at home for the delivery. If our other products have been purchased which do not fit through a letterbox and the recipient is not at home, Royal Mail or DPD will leave a collection card for the recipient to collect the parcel from their local sorting office or from a neighbour.
Our packages are designed to keep your flowers in good condition for a couple of days but we would advice that parcels are collected as soon as possible.
Will Letterbox Flowers fit through all letterboxes?
Unfortunately, we can not guarantee that Letterbox Flowers will fit through all letterboxes. Our Letterbox Bouquets have been specially designed to fit through the vast majority of standard UK letterboxes, with our box dimensions being as follows: Width: 19cm, Depth: 4cm, Length: 60cm.
Therefore refunds will not be issued in the instance that the Letterbox Flowers box does not fit thorough the letterbox. However, Royal Mail will leave a collection card in the event that Letterbox Flowers do not fit. Our packages are designed to keep your flowers in good condition for a couple of days but we would advice that parcels are collected as soon as possible.

Quality and Flower Care
Are flower care instructions provided?
Yes, care instructions are included inside the flower box and in app, which should be followed in order to increase the life and enjoyment of your flowers. Flowers are a perishable, natural product that will react to their environment. We use only the freshest and highest quality flowers especially selected because we know they travel well. However, once we post our flowers a number of circumstances outside our control may result in their longevity being reduced.
How are the flowers packaged?
All our bouquets are packaged in specially designed “flower care” boxes which protect and let the flowers breathe in transit.
Our flowers and plants are delivered with a personalised card and flower food.
Do my flowers come in a vase?
Our bouquets are not supplied with a vase.
What do I do if the flowers don’t look like the photos in app?
To ensure your flowers last as long as possible some of our flowers will arrive in bud. This means that the flowers can be enjoyed for longer but also one has the pleasure of watching them bloom.
There may be times when we substitute some blooms with a different flower due to climate or seasonal conditions and therefore we reserve the right to substitute any product with an alternate product of a similar style, value and quality. This may mean, from time to time, we have to create your bouquet using slightly different flowers from those illustrated. We will of course ensure we maintain a similar colour and style.
What if I’m not satisfied with the quality of my purchase?
We pride ourselves on the quality and freshness of our flowers and our customer service. We select flowers that we know travel well, however, if flower quality is of concern, please contact us immediately. It is essential that we be informed within 48 hours of receiving your flowers, and good quality, multiple photos are supplied to us which were taken on the day of receipt of the flowers. Every effort is made to ensure that our customers receive the product and service that they expect.
Is it safe to send Lilies to a home with pets?
Lilies can be highly toxic to cats and so we strongly advise that our bouquets containing lilies are not sent to cat owners. Lilies are the most poisonous to cats, however we do advise that our bouquets are kept out of reach of all pets to be safe. Our friendly customer service team will be happy to offer further advise, email us [email protected]
