Cornish Blooms Terms and Conditions & Delivery information

Our terms and conditions for visiting and using our website, placing orders via our website, and placing an order in any other form.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us by using the contact form on this website, or by telephoning us on 0800 0938564 (freephone) or 01209 831704 (local & usually most cost effective from mobile phones).

WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE PRICE

All (apart from our Cornish Seasonal Bouquet) prices stated include delivery by Royal Mail 24, which is the business name for first class parcel post.

For our Cornish Seasonal Bouquet we use FEDEX, which is a next-day courier service

All gift wrapping, gift cards, ribbon, flower food is included in the price

GENERAL

We send our flowers ‘in-bud’ so that they have as long a vase life as possible once they reach the recipient.

We endeavour to send exactly what you order, the photographs on this website are representative of the flower varieties we send. The very nature of our business means that the Scented Narcissi that flower in December, will not be exactly the same varieties as those that flower in February & March. They are still scented narcissi, and you will still receive a mixture of yellow & white varieties in our standard boxes, and all – white varieties in our white boxes, it’s just that they will vary in appearance & scent.

We change the contents of our Cornish Seasonal Bouquet with the seasons, we endeavour to provide up to date photographs of this bouquet. We always try to include at least five different types of flower in this bouquet.

We grow the majority of our flowers and foliages here at Cornish Blooms, however from time to time we do buy in from other local farms, and to meet demand at peak times.

Please include your name in the gift message so that your recipient knows who has sent them the flowers! We do not include a dispatch note, receipt, anything showing the monetary value of your gift.

No vases or jugs are included with the flowers

In the unlikely event of us not being able to fulfil your order, we will contact you to arrange an alternative dispatch date, alternative flowers, or refund. If we cannot contact you we will send flowers to the same or higher value for the date requested.

PLACING AN ORDER

By ordering with us you are consenting to be bound by these terms and conditions

Once you have placed an order it can usually be amended up until the evening before the dispatch date. At peak times such as Mothers Day and Christmas we would appreciate as much time as possible to make any amendments, (it can be fairly time consuming to search through address labels already printed!) We will always endeavour to be as helpful as possible to accommodate change of dates/alterations etc.

If you place your order using our Website you will see an order confirmation on-screen at the time of ordering. If you include your email address you will also receive an email order confirmation, and a confirmation from our card payment processor confirming your payment. If you do not include your email address then unfortunately you will not receive an email confirmation, so it is best to do this.

For orders that you post to us, we will try our best to meet your preferred delivery date, however please note that we receive our post later than our collection time, which means that it is unlikely that we will be able to send out your flowers on the day in which we receive your order.

For telephone orders we will discuss with you the appropriate dispatch and delivery date.

DELIVERY

We use Royal Mail 24 for our standard boxes, and FEDEX for our Cornish Seasonal Bouquet. The price for delivery is included in the price you see.

Due to the nature of this delivery service, we are unable to specify the time of the day that they will be delivered. Some people receive their post early in the morning, others (including us!) after lunch.

We send our flowers Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and allow up to 2 working days for delivery, as although the flowers usually arrive the day after we send them, this cannot be guaranteed. Using this service the flowers usually arrive the following working day after we send them, however on occasion they can take two days to arrive. We therefore suggest that you allow 2 working days for delivery, particularly if your flower order is for a special occasion such as a Birthday or Anniversary. The date you select during the ordering process is the DISPATCH date not the delivery date. We would much rather the flowers arrived a day early, than a day late, which is why, wherever possible we allow two working days for delivery.

If the recipient is not at home when the delivery is attempted, Royal Mail may try a couple of options. 1) They may attempt to leave with a neighbour and leave a note at the recipients address explaining which neighbour the box has been left with. 2) They may leave in a safe place such as an open porch. 3) They may return to the depot and leave a note explaining how the recipient may collect their flowers or arrange re-delivery.

FEDEX do not require a signature for the Cornish Seasonal Bouquet, and so we ask them to try to leave in a safe place or with a neighbour. Failing that, a note will be left at the recipients address for them to arrange re-delivery.

We can only deliver to UK postcodes, and not PO Boxes or BFPO addresses

DELIVERY ADDRESS

It is your responsibility to provide us with the correct address including postcode. We provide a postcode finder on our website during the ordering process for you to use. We would ask that you check you have the correct house name or number so that the flowers go to the right address! If you have any problems obtaining the postcode please do call or email us using the contact form and we will do our best to help.

PAYMENT

We reserve the right not to send the flowers you have ordered until we have received payment.

We accept most credit and debit cards except American Express and Diners Club. Payment will be taken at the time of ordering

All card payments are subject to checks by your card issuer. If payment is refused you will be notified at the time of placing the order when placing your order online.

If you order using the website then you will receive an order confirmation on the screen, and if you provide your email address you will receive an order confirmation via email. You may print these and both act as a receipt.

We do not routinely post receipts

REFUNDS POLICY

At Cornish Blooms we value all our customers and our refund policy is very simple. If at any time you are not completely happy with your purchase, please contact us by email, telephone or to the address below so that we can put things right. In the first instance we will normally offer a replacement delivery of our flowers. We can discuss with you whether you would like a repeat of the original delivery, or an alternative. If this is not suitable then a refund will be provided using your original payment method.

GIFT CERTIFICATES

Gift certificates are redeemable against Cornish Blooms flowers, to the quantity stated on the certificate. Gift certificates may be redeemed by telephoning us, providing us with the voucher number, and the delivery date.

Our gift certificates do not have an expiry date and do not have a cash value, they can only be redeemed for flowers.
