We are not able to guaranty we will accommodate specific delivery time requests except for weddings and funerals. This is especially true on days like Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day.

Deliveries to camping grounds, military bases, ships, ports, and airports can sometimes be very complex and consequently cannot be guaranteed. But rest assured that we will do our best to locate the recipient and complete the delivery.

What if the recipient is not home ?

In most cases, « BOTANICA –Flowers, Balloons & Gifts » will try to ascertain in a subtle way if there is someone on the premises by calling the recipient phone number that you provided during the ordering process. Nevertheless, we recommend that you provide us with specific instructions in case the recipient is not home.

If your instructions indicate specifically that you don’t want us to call the recipient to verify presence and there is no one home, we will have to charge you a redelivery fee each time we will try to deliver unsuccessfully. We will also do the same if the address provided was wrong.

If no specific instructions are provided and if nobody is present at the address of delivery, our driver will choose, based on his best professional judgment:

If no specific instructions are provided and if  nobody is present at the address of delivery, our driver will choose, based on his best professional judgment:
  • Call back the recipient and plan a new delivery at a more convenient time.
  • Leave a delivery note on the door  that would contain specific instructions such as:
    • Please call the driver or the shop to plan a new delivery at your earliest convenience at this number;
    • The arrangement has been left in a sucure/protected place on your premises which is detailed on this note;
    • The arrangement has been left with the neighbor whose address is apprearing hereafter.
  • Come back the next day  and reattempt delivery.
