What if I am missing items from my order?
Please make sure you’ve opened all boxes and double checked your order. If items are missing, please call us, and we will work with you to complete your order.
How do you keep your flowers so fresh?
Our flowers are processed from their farms to our coolers using the Cold Chain method to ensure delivery of the highest quality flowers with the longest vase life possible to our customers.
When our flowers are harvested, they’re quickly and carefully packed into boxes and placed inside 35 degree coolers - which is cold enough to slow down their life cycle, putting them into a sleep state.
They travel in their sleep state via refrigerated trucks and planes to our coolers, where we bring them back to life before delivering them to you ASAP.
