I don't want delivery, can I pick up my posy instead?


Yes! From the 20th of October 2020, pickups will be available from our new store at 22 Raumati Road, Raumati Beach Village.
Just select "pick up" in the shipping options during the checkout process.




Where do you get your flowers from?


We purchase our flowers fresh from the flower auctions in Grenada North before the crack of dawn to bring you the freshest, most premium grade flowers possible.
When possible we also purchase direct from local growers; farm to posy, you can't get fresher than that!
We love supporting local so 99% of the flowers we purchase are sourced from NZ growers. (With the exception of custom orders requesting flowers we don't currently have in season)
Seasonal, fresh & local, what could be better?!




Can I choose what flowers I have in my posy?


You choose the colour palette, and we select the blooms! By doing this, we are able to bring you the most beautiful top quality blooms and foliage. Do let us know if you have any favourite flowers that are in season, and if we have them, we will absolutely include them for you.




How do I care for my flowers?


There are a few key things to do to ensure you get the most out of your flowers.
1. Make sure your vase is squeaky clean! Bacteria build up is the biggest cause of your flowers dying quickly.

2. Give the stems a trim, about 2-3cm, on an angle and immediately place into tepid water - tepid water absorbs up the stems more effectively and hydrates your flowers faster.
One exception to the tepid water rule is tulips - tepid water will make them open faster, to prolong their life as long as possible, place them in cold water.

3. Make sure there are no leaves below the water level in your vase, leaves in the water start to rot, this causes a bacteria build up, which as we mentioned in tip number 1, is the biggest cause of your flowers dying quickly!

4. Change the water every 2-3 days, and wash the vase out with hot soapy water at every water change - remember to trim the stems again before placing back in the vase of tepid water.

5. If your flowers came with a sachet of flower food, follow the instructions as per packet. If not, a solution of 1tsp sugar and half a tsp of bleach into about 500ml of water will act as the flower food, although it is not absoluely necessary to do this.

And finally...

6. Keep your flowers out of direct sunlight or hot rooms to help them last as long as possible.
