Terms & Conditions
We have tried to be as clear as possible!
Blossom Florists offers free flower delivery throughout most of Essex but NOT to RM, EN, IG or CB Postcode areas.
Our Guaranteed AM or PM service is subject to availability and if in the unlikely event we fail to deliver AM if requested or PM if requested then we will refund the £3.99 delivery charge in full. We cannot be held responsible for failure to deliver to the specified requirements and will not refund the total order.
The General rule of thumb is to order before 1pm (UK time) for same day delivery. We are flexible however and will endeavour to get your gift delivered if ordered later than 1pm. Please note this is subject to availability and we will inform you if delivery is not possible. Only certain areas are available for same day delivery, please check delivery details for confirmation.
Order before 11am for Saturday Same Day flower Delivery.
Sunday and Bank Holiday delivery is not available unless a specificied otherwise for Valentine's Day or Mother's Day.
It is a legal requirement that you and your recipient must be 18 or over to order or be sent alcohol.
Although we will try our best, we unfortunately cannot guarantee delivery times if requested, exception being funerals, unless the paid delivery option has been selected. This of course is subject to availability.
Funeral flowers may need longer notice - please check when ordering.
If ordering for delivery outside our Essex delivery area, this will be delivered by a local florist to the specified delivery address. This means the product delivered will likely differ from that shown on our website and we cannot be held responsible if your gift is not as shown. Some products such as Fruit Baskets and Bespoke Funeral Tributes may not be able to be delivered outside our normal Essex Area.
As flowers are a natural product and are dependent on harvests, not all types or colours are available at all times and therefore we have to reserve the right to substitute flower types, foliage types and colours. We also may have to change the design of balloons in the unlikely event we are out of stock of a particular type.
Images shown are a represenation only. As we are using natural products, colours and individual flower types will differ from those shown. The amount of flowers included will also vary, depending on the wholesale price at the time.
When there is massive global demand for flowers such as on Mothers Day, Valentine's Day and Christmas, growers may stock flowers longer. This may result in flowers not lasting as long as our normal high standards would expect. Because this is the case wherever you buy your flowers, we cannot be held responsible for shorter vase life, although we can assure you that we take every care to maximise freshness.
We cannot be held responsible for any delay in delivery due to circumstances beyond our control such as severe weather conditions etc. In this instance, we will deliver the next possible day. We will not issue a refund in this instance. Funerals are excluded from this clause.
Can't see what you want? Give us a call and we will see what we can do!
Products will vary due to the seasonal availability of flowers and our individual florists' interpretation of the product.
Teddy bears, balloons and containers may vary from style shown due to availability and supplier.
VAT is charged at the standard rate of 20%
