What makes our flower delivery service so great?
How much is local flower delivery?
Do you deliver flowers outside of the Greater Columbus area?
We can deliver to locations outside of Central Ohio, but an additional fee will be added on to your order. Delivery times and dates are limited on non-local deliveries.
How do I check the status of an order?
During the busiest times of the year we ask for your patience with getting your gift delivered. We make every effort to get all our deliveries out in a timely fashion and turn down orders when we reach maximum capacity. The more we have to stop and identify the status of an order the more it can slow us down.
Please remember that in order to meet demand at the busy holiday season we have contract drivers that come to help deliver your package. It can take some time to identify which contract driver has your gift and when your gift may be made delivered. It is also important to keep in mind that unless you paid for express delivery we do not consider your delivery late until after 5 p.m. for businesses and 6 p.m. for residential deliveries. If you still feel the need to contact us it is usually best to contact the store that you placed your order with to obtain the status of an order. A list of the locations and their phone numbers can be found on our locations page.
One of the services that we provide is in driveway delivery confirmation. We do our best to contact you the sender from the location the delivery was made to give you the most up to the minute status of your order. Once again we use part time delivery help at the holidays so this service is not always executed with the precision that our full time drivers often provide. E-mail confirmation of deliveries is also available but often comes later in the day once all the deliveries have been made.

What happens if no one is home?
We have really good drivers that we empower to make decisions regarding what to do when no one is home. Every situation is unique and is dependent on weather, neighbors or business situations and what kind of shelter is available.
In some cases they will leave the flowers at the door or on a porch.
We also allow them to attempt a neighbor to take the flowers.
Sometimes we have to deliver flowers before a person is at work, (ie. nightshift employees) many times we will leave the arrangement at a front desk or at their specific office.
Sometimes they have no choice but to bring the flowers back to the flower shop. In that situation we will make arrangements with the recipient to make sure they get their flowers.
In all cases it is the drivers decision as to what to do. Yes, sometimes they make a mistake, however they try to make the right decision.
We will leave a door tag with what we have done on recipients door if we are unable to deliver the flowers to a person
What is wrong with the water in a vase when it turns yellow and cloudy?
This is a natural sign that bacteria are growing in the water. Bacteria can clog stems and shorten the vase life of flowers, so keep the water clear at all times to ensure the longevity of your blooms. If your water starts to turn cloudy, immediately empty the vase and add fresh water, preferably mixed with the floral food provided by your florist. Re-cut the stems with a sharp knife under warm water before placing them in the vase of fresh water.
Is it possible to revive a wilted rose?
Sometimes. If a rose wilts prematurely, remove it from the arrangement and try the following easy tip to perk it up. Fill a sink with warm water. Lay the rose horizontally in the water bath and cut the stem (about 1") with a sharp knife under the warm water. Leave the rose in the bath for about two hours and let the water cool. This process can work wonders, but if the rose is already past its vase life it will not revive.
How do you lengthen the life of your flower arrangement?

How do you extend the life of your plant? (Green thumb not required)
Not only are green and flowering plants a great enhancement to any home or office decor, they are also beneficial to your health. The results of a study by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) show that common houseplants are powerful, natural air cleaners - all the more reason why you want to keep your plants healthy with the proper care.
Most plants come with care instructions specified for the type of plant. The Society of American Florists provides these additional general guidelines to keep most green houseplants thriving:
What is the best way to take care of a flower arrangement?
It depends on how they are packaged:
No matter what type of arrangement you have, it is important to keep your flowers off of televisions, appliances and heating/cooling units. You should also keep them away from hot or cold drafts and out of direct sunlight.
Since flowers like sunshine, should I put my arrangement in the sun?
No. Growing flowers require sunshine for maturation, but cut flowers will fade much faster if exposed to heat and direct sunlight. To keep flowers fresh longer, place them in a location away from sun and drafts.
