UPDATE ON COVID 19 - 17/03/2020
Hi lovely friends,
Well thankfully our our first big flower delivery made it through, we’re just busy conditioning the fresh flowers ready.
We know its a scary time for everyone, we’re certainly worried too, but we’re a small family business and we’re committed to fulfilling our orders and supplying flowers as long as they can get into the country, its safe to do so and until we absolutely are told we can’t.
Lets face it we need a little joy right now, especially our Mums as its their day on Sunday.
As in previous posts we are doing everything possible to protect our customers, staff, families and friends.
Our shop still remains open and will be well stocked for grab and go floral products and plants, every stem will be made up so that if you choose to personally visit us which your most welcome to then you don’t need to be in store long.
However, we ask that those who can, order online or give us a call 0161 483 3923 and we’ll deliver your gifts locally for Free.
You can choose any day for delivery as Mother's day will commence on Thursday giving us four days to deliver your gifts.
And, if your recipient lives a distance from you, can’t get out and is needing supplies of other items just let us know and we’ll see if we can help?
We need to pull together, support each other and we can get through this.
