At eFlorist we employ a highly trained, UK based, Sales and Customer care team who are committed to ensuring the best possible service to our consumers - whether ordering flowers by post, or any of our florist delivered products and gifts online.
We are only too happy to deal with any enquiries you may have regarding our UK online flower delivery and gifting services and welcome any feedback or comments you may have relating to your experiences with eFlorist.
When your delivery arrives the lucky recipient will receive the flowers, any additional items purchased (such as chocolates or teddy bears) and the card message* We ensure that no documents are delivered with the gift as this may detract from the intended sentiment. As such, when writing your card message, please be aware that if no name is included, the recipient will not know who the flowers are from and the delivery will be completely anonymous.
This may be your intention for a romantic occasion such as Valentine's Day. If the recipient contacts us to find out who sent the flowers, we will not release any information without your permission and will contact you to confirm if it would be acceptable to yourself to provide such details. This is due to the Data Protection Act of 1998. *Please note, for courier and postal orders, the card message is attached to the delivery information on the outside of the box.
If the address to which you would like to send flowers is in the UK and has a UK postcode you can place your order from anywhere in the world.
Unfortunately as flowers are a perishable item we are unable to deliver to PO Boxes or BFPO addresses.
All of the prices on our website are in GBP (£ sterling) and the conversion will be done at the rate specified by your card provider.
Should the person you are sending flowers to not be at home at the time of delivery, there are three options on how to proceed. If the flowers are delivered by courier or by Royal Mail, they will seek to leave the flowers with a neighbour or trustee, or alternatively they will leave the flowers in a safe place, out of sight of passers-by and will post a calling card, detailing the delivery to the recipient to ensure the safe arrival. In the event there is nobody present and nowhere safe to leave the flowers, they will be returned to the nearest depot or Post Office. A calling card may be left advising the recipient to contact the courier or Royal Mail to organise a re-delivery or a collection. Our florist delivered bouquets follow a similar procedure, however, if a telephone number has been provided our florist can contact the recipient to see if they are nearby or available to take the delivery. They can also leave a message to organise a delivery at a time that suits them or to advise them of the location of the flowers, whether they have been left in a safe place or if they have been returned to the shop.
Delivery is included in the cost of the bouquet, however, we do charge a service fee. This covers our handling of your order and may vary based on the date of delivery (such as Valentine's and Mother’s Day.) For the most up to date service fees please visit the products page.
The way in which our flowers are presented upon delivery will depend on the arrangement chosen. We offer many different types of arrangements, for example our traditional flat bouquets, such as the Royal Blush, Silver Lining or Celebration, arrive in a flat design, out of water, so they will need to be cut and placed in water upon delivery. There are also aquapack arrangements, such as the New Princess or WOW bouquet. These arrive as a hand tied bouquet of flowers wrapped in cellophane with a bubble of water to keep the stems fresh. These bouquets are arranged ready for display, simply unwrap, trim the stems and place in a vase of clean water. Alongside our bouquets and aquapacks we offer vase arrangements which will be delivered in a vase. Also container arrangements, here the flowers will be arranged in oasis, meaning the flowers will only require occasional watering. For most of our arrangements, a vase can be ordered as an optional extra if you wish for it to be included. For our Royal Mail delivered and courier delivered bouquets, the bouquet will be tied in the box for protection. If paid for, a vase will be included, this will be a plastic vase and flowers will not necessarily be in the vase or including water.
We understand you will be keen to know when the recipient will be receiving the flowers you've kindly bought for them. Due to the majority of our flowers being delivered by our professional local florists, we don't offer a live tracking service but our Customer Service team is on hand to help.
You can call our Customer Service team on 0845 459 0088.
We advise that our deliveries take place between 09:00 and 21:00, there may be slight delays sometimes due to traffic and such. Every effort will be made to ensure that deliveries to workplaces and offices are completed during work hours, but please advise us if the recipient is likely to leave earlier so that we can ensure the flowers are received.
When you place your order online, the website will confirm that your order has been placed and will display an overview of the details provided. Shortly after this, you will receive an automated email confirmation from eFlorist with the reference number to keep for your records.
If your order is placed by telephone, the advisor you speak to will provide an order ID and can email the confirmation to you if you desire.
Our deliveries take place between 09:00 and 21:00, Monday to Friday, for all of our methods of delivery, except florist which is between 09:00 and 18:00.
We appreciate that there are times when you may need to request that the delivery takes place before a certain time or after certain hours, perhaps due to work, appointments or just the hectic lifestyle of the lucky recipient.
You are welcome to request a delivery time if the bouquet ordered is one of our florists delivered bouquets and while we will make every effort to meet this request, we do advise that we are unable to guarantee any timed delivery requests due to the varying workload and variables out of our control, for example, traffic or adverse weather conditions.
If you are ordering flowers for a funeral, please note that your order must be placed at flowersforfunerals.co.uk. Ordering through this website will guarantee the delivery time for the flowers to be there in good time for the service.
If you have ordered one of our courier delivered or Royal Mail delivered bouquets, unfortunately, we are unable to influence the delivery time in any way. It's worth mentioning though that measures will be taken to try and ensure deliveries to workplaces are received during work hours. Furthermore, the sooner the deliveries are completed, the sooner the driver is finished for the day.
We ask for a minimum of 24hours notice to make any changes. If you are requesting any changes on the date of delivery or the date before, we will make every effort though we can't guarantee this.
Over the Valentines period, we work super-fast to arrange and despatch orders for delivery. Please note that this means we will not always be able to cancel or make amendments to orders. Please, can you double check your order prior to payment to avoid any mistakes and subsequent disappointment this may cause.
Our deliveries take place between 09:00 and 21:00, Monday to Saturday.
If you would like an update on the status of your order, we would recommend contacting our Customer Service here, or by Live Chat when our agents are available.

Unfortunately cannot guarantee delivery dates for flowers delivered by Royal Mail, which can take up to 2 days from requested delivery date.
On top of the cost of the flowers, there is a service fee. This covers our handling of your order and may vary based on the date of delivery (such as Valentine’s and Mother’s Day.) For the most up to date service fees please visit the products page.
