FAQ’s

Do the prices on the website include GST?

Yes, all prices listed on the Melbourne Florist website are inclusive of GST.

What if no-one is at the delivery address to receive the flowers?

In the instance that the recipient is not there to receive the flower delivery, our courier will assess if it is safe to leave the flowers at the front, side or back door of the delivery address and if it is not safe a calling card will be left at the property to advise the recipient to call us to arrange another delivery time or address that's more suitable (additional charges may apply). You may give us your authority to leave the flowers at the front or back door of the delivery address, if you feel that it is safe, via the "order notes" field provided on the recipient's details order page, however, if the flowers are stolen or damaged it will not be the responsibility of Melbourne Florist to replace or refund the flowers and delivery fee so for this reason we would encourage you to find a more secure location.

What are your shop trading hours?

We are open 365 days of the year. From Monday to Friday we are open from 8.30am to 8.30pm. On Saturdays we are open from 9am to 6pm and Sundays & Public holidays we are open from 10am to 6pm.

Do you sell potted plants?

We generally always have Phalaenopsis orchid plants in stock for most of the year and seasonal/special occasion plants as they are available. Check online or call us on 03 9578 9982 to find out what is in season/stock. Please note: Hospitals generally do not allow potted plants to be delivered to the wards.

Will the flowers I have ordered look exactly as displayed on the website?

We will always create the bouquet or arrangement to look as much as possible like the flowers pictured on the website, however at certain times of the year, some flower varieties may be out of season or may not meet the high standard of quality that we consistently maintain in our store, so in this instance we would substitute these flowers with other varieties of similar colour and texture and of equal or greater value.

If I place my order online, how will I know that you have received it?

You will receive an order confirmation email immediately after placing your order online. After we have processed your order you will then receive another email to advise you that we are in the process of creating and delivering your flowers. Finally, once your flowers have been successfully delivered to the recipient we will send you a third and final email to confirm that your order is complete.

Do you phone the recipient prior to delivery?

If we have attempted delivery and there was no one there to receive the flowers and it is unsafe to leave them at the property we will attempt to contact the customer and await further instruction. In some instances we will contact the customer to try and avoid billing the customer an additional re-delivery fee.

Can I request a specific time for delivery?

Except for funerals, we cannot guarantee a specific delivery time, however if you do have a time requirement for your flower delivery, please call us on 03 9578 9982 to discuss your options as we always endeavour to fulfill our customer's requests, if possible, as best we can.
