At Pugh's Flowers, we have tracked all of our orders by computer over the past twelve years. During this time, we have been able to identify the best florists in each major market. They have become part of our preferred network of affiliate shops. We can count on them to provide top quality designs and farm fresh product at competitive prices.
If the recipient is not at their home when a delivery is attempted, the florist may choose to do one of the following: 1. Call the recipient ahead of time to make sure that they are going to be there or to schedule an appropriate time. 2. Leave a note on the door of the recipient's home asking them to call the florist and schedule an appropriate delivery time. 3. Leave the arrangement in a covered area of the home (porch or other entrance). 4. Leave the arrangement with a neighbor and place a message on the recipient's door referring them to the neighbor who accepted for them. If you do not wish for the delivering florist to use any of these procedures, please make sure that you indicate this in the "Special Instructions" box on your order form.
