How to send your Flowers to us by Royal Mail Special Delivery
Flower/Bouquet Packaging Instructions
1. You will need a sturdy cardboard box either with a lid or one with flaps that can be sealed to put your flowers in. This should be large enough to comfortably accommodate your flowers. You may if you wish strengthen the corners of the box using lengths of dowel but this is not essential. Ideally, the flowers need to be placed upright in the box to avoid putting unnecessary pressure on the flowers - a cardboard florist’s vase or something similar will support the flowers very nicely. If you don’t have a cardboard florist’s vase to hand, don’t worry. You can improvise using an old jam jar or glass. Remember, the vase or jar is only meant to support the flowers upright in the box whilst you fill in the void around the flowers with your packaging material.
3. Make a nest in the bottom of the box with long shredded paper and/or crumpled tissue paper and/or crumpled up newspaper and/or crumpled up magazine paper and/or kitchen roll and place the bouquet and vase/jar in the nest with the flowers facing upwards. NEVER use plastic or bubble wrap over the top of your flowers as this will make your flowers hot and sweaty and encourage bacteria growth.
