Review: FreshFlowers.com.au | Australian online florist delivery

During a special occasion, flowers are often given to celebrate! However with people leading busier lifestyles, more and more people are looking to get their flowers ordered online and delivered. So today I am introducing to my Australian readers an online florist boutique that helps delivers your flowers for you.

Research reveals that people feel more compassionate towards others, have less worry and feel greater happiness when fresh cut flowers are present. Yes, it is fact that fresh flowers feeds compassion, boosts energy, and improves happiness and enthusiasm. - taken from freshflowers.com.au

 Fresh Flowers vow to pick and cut the freshest flowers for whatever need arises. They deliver to most capital cities, territories, metropolitan and regional areas in Australia (except in some areas which are not covered by their standard delivery service). However if this situation arises, they will personally contact you and arrange something for the delivery.

Looking for international deliveries? No worries! FreshFlowers.com.au also delivers overseas as part of Interflora. They also provide same day delivery if you order before 2pm on a weekday and 10am on Saturday. They do not deliver on Sunday or public holidays. More information can be found on their FAQs.

And if you require more assistance, they have a Customer Service Line at 13 37 37.

Their website is clean, simple and incredibly easy to navigate. At the top, you can choose to browse options depending on the occasion, flower, style, price and market specials. When you join as a member, you can get 10% off your first order. However you can always enter the discount code "FFCARD" for 20% off for a limited time ;)

Now with the introductory stuff out of the way, let's get on to the review!

I ordered a Delightful bouquet which is sold for $79.95, and paid $10 for the delivery.

Ordered: 8 July 2015. I wanted the bouquet to be delivered the next day, on the 9th.
Delivered: 9 July 2015 5pm.

Sadly, when you order you flowers, there is no option for your to choose which time you want it to be delivered.

The person who delivered the flowers was efficient, knocked on the door, asked for my mother (I ordered the flowers for her), and presented it before going on his merry way.

 The Delightful bouquet is described to contain a gorgeous mix of gerberas, lisianthus and premium roses. It is colour coordinated into purple and pinks! It is beautifully wrapped in a green non-woven wrap, their signature hessian overlay and green satin ribbon with a height of 40cm.

The wrap is incredibly sturdy, as there are a couple layers. However the little mesh part does tend to shed slightly.

You can write a message for the person to be delivered to! On the green card is the recipient's name, inside is the carded message AND flower food to make sure your flowers last a long time. Wonderful!

It has been almost a week and the flowers are still vibrant, though most have slightly wilted and become limp.

My mother was extremely surprised by the Delightful bouquet, she loves roses!

All in all, this website provides a vast array of bouquets, plants and flowers for every occasion. The website is easy to navigate and efficient. Payment was a breeze. The only problem is that you are not able to select which time you want it to be delivered. If no one is home, you can write whether you want them to rearrange another delivery time or to leave it at the front door/at the neighbours.
