Our Flowers

Why do some flowers arrive still in bud? - This is mainly to protect the flowers from being damaged whilst in transit. Certain flowers (such as Carnations, Lilies and Tulips) are sent directly from our growers still in their bud stage, and to prevent any further damage to the flowers whilst in transit we try to keep them in the same stage as when they arrived until they reach your recipient. This is also beneficial for the recipient as it means that they will be receiving the freshest flowers possible and will be able to enjoy them for much longer.

How are the flowers protected whilst in transit? - All of our arrangements are sent in specially designed boxes, with a range of sizes to fit each bouquet. These boxes ensure that the flowers are as snug as possible whilst out for delivery - the way the boxes are designed means that the flowers won't be able to move around whilst in transit, which can cause damage.

Why are certain bouquets not arranged when they are received? - Some of our smaller boxes are designed for the flowers to be packaged in a way that completely protects them, but means they are more likely to incur damage if arranged. With bouquets delivered in these boxes we find that the flowers are safer if we do not professionally arrange them before we pack them. We shoot our bouquets in full bloom to show how lovely they will look when they are fully open and arranged in a vase.

Posy Points

What are Posy Points? - Posy Points is our customer reward point scheme. Every time you order from Bunches.co.uk you earn Posy Points and these can be used to claim money off your next order with us. The points are equal to 5% money back on future orders, so if you spend £20 for example, you will earn Posy Points worth £1 off your next order!

How do I earn Posy Points? - You collect Posy Points on every order you place at Bunches.co.uk. You will need to be a registered customer for the points to be automatically credited to your account. If you cancel or return an order to us, we reserve the right to cancel the Posy Points awarded for that order.

How much are my Posy Points worth? - You earn 1 Posy Point for every 10p spent, so for example the £14.99 Classic Carnations will earn 150 Posy Points. Each point is worth £0.005 so 150 Posy Points will get you 75p off your next order, equal to 5% cashback!

How do I redeem my Posy Points? - If you have Posy Points in your account, when you get to the basket summary page you will see the option to use them as either part or full payment on your order. If you have enough points you can send a bouquet using just Posy Points as payment! Posy Points can only be used at Bunches.co.uk for money off your next order, they cannot be used at any other website. They cannnot be exchanged for cash or any other item. Posy Points are not transferable.

How can I check my Posy Points balance? - You can check your Posy Points balance at any time by logging into your account.

Do I have to register to claim Posy Points? - In order to claim and store Posy Points you do need to be a registered customer. The points that you accumulate will be stored in your account for you to save money on your future orders. We do offer a 'Just Checkout' function for customers who wish to place an order without registering, but you will not receive any Posy Points for orders placed this way.
