Artificial Flower Supplies will NOT be held responsible for any delay caused by adverse weather conditions. If next day delivery is paramount please call us and we will check whether DPD are experiencing any problems on the route your parcel has to take. The weather may not be adverse in your area or ours but your consignment may have to pass through areas less fortunate!
Please note a small number of our artificial flower arrangements are created in house and may not be available for next day delivery. Please check the product description as some arrangements may take up to fourteen days for delivery.
We are extremely conscious of environmental issues and make every attempt to recycle all packaging. If your flowers appear to be packaged in a used cardboard box then you are not mistaken. We reuse packaging whenever possible and dispose of all packaging that may not be reused at our local recycling plant. Please help us protect our environment by disposing of your packaging with care.

If the goods are returned in "New/Unused Condition" a refund of the full cost will be paid through the original Credit/Debit Card/Paypal system. Please note that the price you are charged for postage and packing is only a contribution to that cost, it is not the actual cost of sending your order to you. This does not affect your statutory rights.
