Frequently Asked Questions
What health & safety measures are you taking in light of COVID-19?
As we navigate the current health crisis together, we continue to prioritize the safety and well-being of our team members, their families and our customers. As always, we are here to help and support you during these unprecedented times. Our plants are delivered by Fedex. As a measure of social distancing and to minimize any potential risk of exposure for both our carrier and our customers, all deliveries will not require a signature.
We have provided our teams with the following delivery protocol guidelines:
- Leaving a plant unattended (e.g. on the porch) will be an acceptable form of delivery
- All employees should practice responsible sanitation and hand-washing
- Delivery vehicles should be properly ventilated throughout the day and in clean condition
- Announce arrival by ringing bell or knocking on the door, but practice touchless delivery
- Deliveries to non-residential addresses, like hospitals and schools, may be impacted by health and safety restrictions due to the evolving pandemic. We are monitoring this closely and will be in touch with you if we cannot deliver your gift to this address.
- Our fulfillment locations follow Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) as defined by the FDA. These GMPs include, but are not limited to, social distancing, sanitizing, hand washing/drying, wearing gloves, restrictions against eating or drinking at work stations, instructions to employees that employees should not come to work if they are sick or not feeling well, or employees being sent home if they become ill while working.
Do I need to sign for my delivery?
