FAQ & Delivery

Here’s a few little things we get asked fairly often. If you have a question that we haven’t answered, shoot us an email at hi@poppyrose.com.au

How does it all work?

Well it’s all really simple actually. We head to the markets each morning, pick out the best flowers we can, make one different styled bunch each day and then deliver them all over Brisbane from just $29 including delivery to selected suburbs.

We focus on providing a cost effective service which can be used by people with lots of different budgets. This is why we chose to keep our bunches smaller. When you purchase a bunch of flowers from us that price covers the cost of the flowers + delivery + wages + taxes + business running costs. We are a business too, so we make a small profit at the end of each sale.


How are you different to a traditional florist?

We’ve found a sustainable way to deliver flowers, with minimal waste!

We operate a little differently to the big guys, focusing on a unique style of flowers which changes daily. We focus on minimising the amount of flowers that end up in the bin by only buying what we need each day – so it goes straight from our local grower’s market to your door!

We wanted to minimise the impact we have on our environment by using Kraft brown recyclable paper and natural jute twine to bundle our flowers – all of which are biodegradable (and the look great)! We thought it was time to say goodbye to hot pink cellophane and curly ribbons – you’re welcome!

Our online ordering process is simple and by keeping our business online and keeping our overheads as low as possible we are able to keep the costs of our flowers down – that one’s for you!


How big will my bunch of flowers be?

This depends on what option you order.

We have three options in our Daily range, The Micro, Small and Medium bunch.

MICRO BUNCH $29 inc delivery
The smallest of our flower gang.
A tiny little gesture to let someone know you are thinking of them.

DAILY SMALL $39 inc delivery
Our Original small bunch.
Bigger than the Micro, but a small selection of fresh seasonal blooms.

DAILY MEDIUM $65 inc delivery
The largest of our daily blooms,
with double the amount of flowers to our Daily Small bunch.

If you would like something substantially larger, please consider our ‘Choose your style’ option which starts at $80 including delivery to selected suburbs.


Can I choose my flowers?

We’ve taken care of that for you! Our daily bunches are selected each morning.

If you do want something made in certain colour or style, that’s ok – just place a ‘Choose your style’ order on our website. Our Choose your style bunches start at $80 including delivery (additional courier fees for some suburbs).


What different options do you have?

We think options are good – so we do have a few for you to choose from.

MICRO BUNCH $29 inc delivery
The smallest of our flower gang.
A tiny little gesture to let someone know you are thinking of them.

DAILY SMALL $39 inc delivery
Our Original small bunch.
Bigger than the Micro, but a small selection of fresh seasonal blooms.

DAILY MEDIUM $65 inc delivery
The largest of our daily blooms,
with double the amount of flowers to our Daily Small bunch.

Send a ‘Choose your style’ bunch: maybe you want a special colour or style, we get it. These start at $80 including delivery, are bigger than our daily bunch and can be a little more specific to your wants or needs.

Market special: We like to end the week with a bang. Every Friday we chose something really popular and send it out as our market special. Don’t worry, you can still order our daily bunch as well, we’ve covered all bases.


When is your cut off time?

12pm or until sold out, which ever comes first. A lot of the time our flowers are so lovely that they are sold out in a flash so be sure to get in nice and early or to pre-order to avoid missing out.


Can I order in advance?

Yup, sure can. Just select the ‘send on a later date’ option under the ‘order flowers’ tab on the menu. You can order the day before, the week before, the month before – you get the point.


Do you deliver to my area?

We have a few different areas that we cover and the cost of your delivery will depend on where your flowers are going. Here are all of the suburbs that we delivery to and how much delivery is for each of them. Please note that this pricing is allocated to each suburb by our courier and we can not control these rates. These rates are also subject to change at any time without notice.

We deliver to these suburbs for an extra delivery fee


My area isn't on the list, can you go there?

Maybe yes, maybe no. Sometimes if we’re really nice to our courier we can ask them to make a special trip for you – but it does come at a price. Shoot us an email at hi@poppyrose.com.au and we can let you know just what that price is.


What payment options do you have?

Our website takes both Paypal and Credit card payment. Our shop has EFTPOS and we also take good old fashioned cash payments.


What time will my flowers arrive, can I have them before a certain time?

We’re busy little bees in the mornings and spend hours preparing your flowers. They leave the studio just after lunch time and our couriers spend the afternoons running them around Brisbane.

We’re unable to tell you an exact time they will be delivered but you can expect orders to business addresses to be completed by 5:30pm and residential by 6pm. We’re unable to guarantee delivery time frames as our courier has to follow the most efficient route – this is how we keep the cost of our flowers down.


What if the recipient leaves work early?

If your lucky receiver leaves work before our driver arrives, their flowers will be left at their work place. Imagine how happy they’ll be to start the next day with a lovely little bunch on their desk! Don’t worry, every bunch is delivered with a little water bag, so they’ll be able to have a little drink over night.

Unfortunately if this happens on a Friday, the same terms and conditions do apply. If your receiver tends to leave work early on a Friday it may be a safer option to order them to their home address. Most days we are not able to re-direct flowers once they have left the studio.


What if they're not home when the flowers are delivered?

This is an easy one. If the receiver isn’t home, we’ll leave them at the front door. If you’d like us to leave them somewhere else, just let us know when you place your order. If they have one of those big fancy houses with security gates and codes or they live in a big apartment building, just remember to let us know how we can access the property. If we can’t get in, we can’t leave the flowers and will have to bring them back to the studio.

Please remember that it is your responsibility to make sure that the address you have provided is correct and that the property we’re delivering flowers to is accessible for our couriers – they don’t really like jumping fences. We will only try and call the receiver or sender if we feel there is a problem with your order. If we deliver your flowers when the receiver is not home and you have provided the wrong address, we are not able to try and retrieve your order and you will need to place a new order (unless that person is lovely enough to get in touch)!


What if my flowers are returned to the studio because they couldn't be delivered?

This doesn’t happen too often but there is the odd little guy that makes his way back us. This is why it’s super important to check your order before sending it off to us. Wrong addresses, missing information on orders, patients being discharged early and inaccessible buildings are the main reasons that we see our flowers come back. If we need to re-deliver your flowers, we’ll have to charge you a re-delivery fee – we don’t like it but that’s just the way the cookie crumbles. If we need to deliver fresh flowers, we’ll need you to place a brand new order.


Do you deliver on the weekend?

At this stage our flower + plant deliveries only take place Monday to Friday.

You can come and see us in store at 50 Hume street Norman Park during our opening hours:

Monday – Friday: 7:00am – 2:30pm
Saturday – 8am – 12pm
Sunday – Closed


Can I pick up from your shop?

You sure can, as long as it’s within our opening hours. It’s best to order your flowers online first and advise us that you will be picking them up – we would hate for you to come in after we are sold out of flowers! We do have a selection of flowers available in store as well.

Our opening hours are:
You’ll find us at Shop 4, 50 Hume street Norman Park

Monday – Friday: 7:00am – 2:30pm
Saturday – 8am – 12pm
Sunday – Closed

 


How do I know if my flowers have been delivered?

You’ll receive an email update once your order has been delivered. This might happen a little later than the actual delivery time (sometimes the next day), so don’t stress if you haven’t seen an update until a little later in the afternoon.


There's a problem with my order, what do I do?!

Most importantly, do not stress – we repeat, do not stress. Jump onto your computer, phone, iPad – and just email us, that’s what we’re there for. Sometimes things change, we understand that. It can be a little tricky to make changes to a same day order once it has left the studio – but if the flowers are still hanging around we’ll do our best to make any changes for you. You can reach us at hi@poppyrose.com.au.


How do I keep my flowers looking pretty?

  • Remove them from their wrapping and pop them into some fresh water
  • Snip the ends on an angle every few days and give them some fresh water, they’ll love you for it
  • Our flowers go straight from the markets to you, so they should look smashing for at least 2-3 days after you receive them

If for any reason looking at  your flowers makes you sad, please email us at hi@poppyrose.com.au.
