Valentines Day Deliveries

In order to guarantee delivery for Valentine’s Day orders, we require orders to be placed no later than 8:00PM (AEST) 13 February.


Due to the large number of orders received on Mother’s Day & Valentines Day, Botanics reserves the right to make substitutions where ultimately necessary to ensure that your delivery arrives on time. All substitutions will be made with similar products to the same or greater value of the original.

Order Alterations

We accept order alternations up until the moment the order has left the shop. Additional fees however, may apply.

These alterations can include delivery addresses, changes to card messages, changes to the original requested product and changes to the recipient’s name.

Order Cancellations

For cancellations occurring at least 24 hours delivery date and time, Botanics can refund the total amount. However cancellations placed after this period can only receive a partial refund or credit as the flowers have already been constructed, cut and designed.

Delivery Policy when the recipient is not at home to accept your gift

If the recipient is not at home to receive your gift, we will execute our discretion to determine if it is safe to be left at the front door or somewhere locatable. In the event we are unable to leave the gift in a safe location the items will be returned to the shop where we will get in touch with either the recipient or yourself to organise re-delivery dates and times. Re-deliveries will incur extra charges.

To ensure safe delivery of any gifts, we recommend including the recipient's phone number of the comments section of the checkout process so we may get in touch in the event they are unavailable.
