Yes!  Please order before 3pm for guaranteed same day delivery and for any next day specific flower requests!  During special holidays (e.g. Mother’s Day) we are open extended hours (full details available on our ‘Opening Hours’ page); all orders will be delivered during our shop opening hours.  We will be able to deliver orders received after 3pm, but please give us a call to confirm on 01202 532 664.  We will then do our best to accommodate your preferred colours and flowers using our variety of fresh flowers in stock.  

We will deliver on special hoildays (Mother’s Day) and Valentines if it falls on a Sunday and we will do our best to ensure deliveries within normal shop hours. However, on other Sundays throughout the year, orders can be placed on line for delivery on the following Monday.

We deliver free to the local hospitals.  Some wards will accept flowers, some won’t.  In the case where they don’t, the nurses usually show the recipient the flowers and give them the card, before putting them in a safe place for a relative to take home or if there is no space we must take them back to our shop.   You must check whether the ward you would like to send to accepts flowers and plants or not before placing your order.  If the ward refuses them we will return them to our store and notify you.  Remember, we also offer balloon bunches, teddy bears, silk flower arrangements, chocolates and more!  They always accept those!

Just before check out you may specify AM or PM delivery preferences in the ‘comments box’ on the bottom left of the page, and we will do our very best to deliver within this time. Funeral and wedding deliveries do take priority.  Otherwise if you have no preference, flowers will be delivered during our shop opening hours.  

If there is a safe place (like a porch) we will leave the flowers there and put a delivery note through the door.  If not, we will leave them with a neighbour and again, post an explanatory note.  If neither of these options are available and we cannot get through to the recipient’s phone number or one has not been provided, then we will take them back to our shop.  We may try again later if we are passing, or the recipient can organise for redelivery or collection at a suitable time.  (Note: there may be an additional charge.)
If we have been supplied with incorrect delivery or recipient information we will contact you as soon as possible.  Please supply your or the recipient’s phone number to help us.  If we are unable to deliver due to this, there may be an additional re-delivery charge of £4.99 payable by phone or paypal, or the recipient can collect anytime from our store.  

If you put in a request by email, phone or the comments box for on-line orders, we can take a picture of your arrangement and either post it on our Facebook page ‘Forevergreen Florists’ or email it to you.  We offer this as a free service, as we know firsthand how hard it is if you are not in the country or live far away, and you’re sending flowers.  

Yes!  We can make bouquets for any price, and you can collect during our opening hours.  If you need us to open a little earlier or a little later, just ask, we try our best to be accommodating and we are often around preparing flowers anyway!  You can call us and pre-order, or order online and select the ‘Collection’ option at checkout.  

Upon check out please include the following information in the ‘comments box’ on the bottom left:

Funeral date and time

Name of the deceased

Your card message

(which will be attached in a clear plastic envelope)

We are also able to deliver tributes to a home address, a numbered grave or the crematorium if so preferred.  

We will need a minimum of 3 days notice for specific requests (If Lilys are requested we will need 5 days to ensure the buds are fully open). However, we can usually provide other alternatives if you have left things a bit late (hand-tied sheaves, sympathy baskets or bouquets)
