Shipping Policy

We will make every attempt to arrange delivery of a product on the requested day. Flowers are usually delivered by our fleet of delivery vehicles within 50 miles radius of our warehouse in Silver Spring, Maryland. Delivery addresses outside of this area are served via FedEx and UPS delivery service.

The delivery charge via our vehicles is $15.00 with a $200 minimum purchase. Purchases under the minimum amount can be picked up at our warehouse, or will be shipped via FedEx overnight or UPS ground service. These carrier's delivery charges depend on the weight and location where the flowers are being shipped. Please note that despite our aggressive discount package through FedEx and UPS — which savings will be passed on to our customers — the overnight delivery charges are high: they may reach 50% of the price of the flowers ordered.

FedEx and UPS overnight shipments will arrive Tuesday through Saturday only. To find out if Saturday service is available in your area, or if you would like to receive more information about the available delivery options, please free to contact us at 1–800–770–8353.
