What is Flowercard?
This unique way to send fresh flowers inside beautiful personalised cards for any occasion.
Are Flowercards made from fresh flowers?
Absolutely! Imagine an exquisite fresh floral arrangement, in miniature, lovingly arranged by hand by our skilled florists and set inside a stylish greeting Flowercard, Flowerchurn, Trug, Teacup or Flowerbox, all beautifully printed with your personalised message. Each unique item is carefully packaged in a beautiful gift box and despatched from us here in the Hampshire countryside by your preferred delivery method.
How is a Flowercard made?
Every single Flowercard product is individually made to order, using freshly picked, exquisite flowers sourced from the best in the world. Flowers are arranged by hand, stem by stem and carefully secured to a sealed Oasis or floral foam base. It takes time to produce something so stunning, and so much smaller than a traditional bouquet, yet with more complexity and intricate beauty. The perfect finishing touch is your personal message printed on the card or label. The majority of our gifts are made from 100% recycled plastic and all are fully recyclable.
How do I choose my Flowercard?
For ease we have created collections of floral greetings cards by their suitability for key occasions, such as Anniversary, Birthday, Engagement, Wedding, New Home, New Baby, New Job or Retirement cards. We have also created collections by sentiment, such as Thank You cards or Get Well cards, Thinking of You cards, Congratulations cards or Sympathy to help you find exactly what you need more easily. In addition we offer Flowerchurns, Flowerboxes and Trugs.

How are Flowercards delivered?
To protect these beautiful cards and make your gift extra special, each Flowercard is delivered in a stunning gift box. During Lockdown 3.0 deliveries may take longer than usual but rest assured Royal Mail are doing their best to delivery all parcels in a timely fashion. You'll find full details on our Delivery page. Our florists' work may be slightly disturbed in transit. Simply pop any fallen heads back into the arrangement.
How long will a Flowercard last?
Every Flowercard is made with fresh flowers. You can enjoy their beauty for up to 2 weeks depending on flower types and time of year. Please ensure the Oasis or floral foam is kept moist by soaking regularly. Simply place your arrangement on your draining board or over the sink and, using a small jug, gently soak the Oasis or floral foam as often as necessary to help your flowers last as long as possible.
My flowers look a little bruised on arrival
It is natural for your flowers to look a little less than their best on arrival. Simply give them a little drink and they will perk up within a few hours. Roses, in particular, can arrive looking a little bruised around the edges. These are guard petals and are left on the rose on purpose to protect them in transit. These can be gently removed as below to allow your roses to flourish and look their best.
How do I care for a Trug?
Our trugs are hand filled with lots of flowers so they require a little more water to keep them looking in tip top condition. Please thoroughly soak the florist's foam. Please note that trugs and planters are not waterproof so care must be taken. We recommend you place on a protective surface.
Are Flowercards safe for pets?
Some flowers and plants can be dangerous to cats and dogs if they are ingested. As cats, in particular, are curious creatures we recommend making sure your Flowercard is displayed where your furry friends can't reach them.
