Mother's Day delivery

For delivery on Sunday 11 March, order by 10pm on Friday 9 March 2018.


What time will my gift be delivered on Mother's Day?
The beautiful flowers and plants for your loved one will be delivered between 8am and 6:30pm - our carriers will be busy delivering everyone's gifts which is why the delivery window is quite long.


How does your delivery service work and what do you charge for delivery on Mother's Day?
We charge £3.95 for delivery per address. We'll send you an order confirmation too. If you haven't received this email within 24 hours of placing your order please contact our Customer Care team by emailing waitroseflorist@waitrose.co.uk or by calling 0800 188 881.


Your flowers look really lovely in the picture but what do they look like when delivered?
For a longer lasting display we deliver a number of our flowers and plants in bud. Don't worry though - after just a few days in their new home, they will look as lovely as they do in the picture.


How can I make my gift extra special?

Adding something special from our range of extra gifts is the easy way to make your gift feel extra thoughtful this Mother's Day. Choose from our selection of Champagne, chocolates, or for something more memorable, add a tin of love themed gingerbread or an Emma Bridgewater ceramic. Simply add to your order when you select your delivery day.


How do I make my bouquet stay looking great this Mother's Day?
Tip 1 - Store in a cool and dry place until you want to present them
Tip 2 - It sounds obvious but always follow the care instructions
Tip 3 - Remember that roses can take a few days to start opening

What if I'm out when you deliver?

If you're out, the delivery driver may be able to leave your order for you in a safe place, providing it's not visible from the road and not exposed to weather conditions affecting the product or its packaging. If this is not possible, the delivery driver will attempt delivery to a neighbour and if this isn't possible, a card will be posted through your letterbox with instructions on how to arrange re-delivery.

Can I amend my order?

Please sign in and check the status of your order in My Account > My Orders.


If your order is showing as "Being Prepared", we may still be able to make a change for you. Please call our Customer Care Team on 0800 188881 (Option 3) with your order number and discuss your requirements.


If the status is "Completed", this means the order's been packed and has left our warehouse in readiness to be delivered to you on your chosen date and we can't make any changes to this order for you.


Please note that we are unable to make amendments to orders during peak periods, including the 5 working days before Valentine's Day, Mother's Day and Christmas.

Can I create my own bouquet?

Unfortunately, we're unable to offer a service where you can create your own bouquet, and we're unable to accommodate requests for specific colours or varieties of flowers.

What if my chosen flowers are no longer available?

We always endeavour to deliver what you order but on rare occasions out of our control, we may have to substitite flowers or plants with those of equal or greater value. Occasions when this may happen are if there's a delayed shipment of flowers being delivered to our supplier, or if unfavourable weather has affected the natural growing season of our seasonal flowers.

How do I know how many flowers are in a bouquet?

Within the 'At a glance' section on the product page, we state how many stems of flowers the bouquet is made up of (we don't include any stems of foliage within this number). Sometimes the stem count may seem quite low compared to how many flowers can be seen in the image and this is due to using flowers which have several buds per stem, such as lilies, spray roses or freesias.

How long will the flowers last?

We offer a freshness guarantee on all our flowers and plants and you can see what this is within the 'At a glance' section of the product page. As we want flowers to be enjoyed as long as possible in the recipients home, flowers are delivered in bud to allow them to gradually open and reveal their full beauty and the product image shows what our flowers will look like after they've been in the home for a few days. When the arrangement is delivered, please don't be concerned if the arrangement seems smaller than you expected - once the care instructions have been followed and the bouquet has been in the home for a few days, the buds will start opening and the arrangement will start to swell in size.

The delivery charge for each bouquet or plant from our Same Day range delivered by eFlorist is £8.95.

Can I have flowers and plants delivered to a hospital?

The majority of our flowers and indoor plants are suitable for hospital delivery, and we will mention this in the 'At a glance' section under additional information. However, we always recommend calling the hospital to check their policy regarding flowers and deliveries before placing your order.

Can I pay with John Lewis and Waitrose gift vouchers and gift cards?

John Lewis and Waitrose gift vouchers can be exchanged for goods in all John Lewis and Waitrose shops, and can also be used to purchase goods online or over the telephone from John Lewis, Waitrose, Waitrose Cellar, Waitrose Florist, Waitrose Gifts, Waitrose Garden and Waitrose Pet. They can also be used to purchase groceries online from the Waitrose groceries website.


Unfortunately, John Lewis Partnership gift cards cannot be redeemed on Waitrose Cellar, Waitrose Florist, Waitrose Gifts, Waitrose Garden and Waitrose Pet - you can use them to purchase goods online or over the telephone from John Lewis and Waitrose.


Gift vouchers may not be exchanged for cash. If the goods purchased online total less than the value of the gift voucher(s), we are unable to hold any balance as a credit for you with Waitrose Gifts.


Gift vouchers may not be used to discharge indebtedness on any account or credit card issued by John Lewis plc, Waitrose Ltd, or John Lewis Financial Services, nor may they be used for the purchase either directly or indirectly of any financial product or service, including John Lewis & Waitrose gift vouchers. When redeeming gift vouchers online or over the telephone you will be required to give the serial number of the voucher, and the online security code which is revealed by scratching off the holographic panel. A maximum of ten vouchers can be used per transaction.


Once the panel has been scratched off, the gift voucher cannot be redeemed in any of our shops. If the security code has already been used for shopping online or over the telephone the voucher will be void. If your gift vouchers become accidentally damaged, please contact Customer Care team by emailing waitroseflorist@waitrose.co.uk or by calling 0800 188 881 between:


8am and 10pm Monday to Friday
8am to 9pm Saturday
9am to 7pm Sunday


Gift vouchers are void if the perforated tear-off area has been removed. If you have to return goods you have purchased online using gift vouchers, then in most instances we will send you gift vouchers in the post to replace them. Products bought online from Waitrose Gifts cannot be returned to Waitrose or John Lewis branches. This does not affect your statutory rights.
