Types of Services
- Local Florist: They deliver directly to the customer with their bikes or vans on the same day, they generally take their orders on their own websites. This is hand delivered and out of all other forms of services it has the advantage of being most precise as they grow their produce and handover themselves.
- Courier Delivery: Also knows as ‘Flowers by post’, they assemble the flowers into bunches at the farm itself and then usually placed into cardboard boxes and then shipped directly to the customer through overnight couriers. The temperature fluctuations can alter the quality of the flowers during Flower Delivery process.

- Relay Florist: As the name suggests, is usually a website service which takes the purchase from customer and instead of it being direct to the local florist, it transfers money to the local florist and takes their commission in doing so.
