Available on back-order
THIS PRODUCT IS FOR COLLECTION FROM BUDELIGH SATLERTON ONLY. EX9.
Buy seasonal edible flowers to decorate your wedding cake.
Our wedding cake edible flower selection is a collection of small, medium and large flowers that are the very best of what is available on the day. A selection of sweet or very mild flavoured flowers which are perfect for garnishing cakes, popping on puds and/or floating in your cocktails. This products comprises 4/5 punnets contains a mix of sizes and colours to decorate the top, shoulders and base of your cake. The images are for illustration purposes only as the content changes with the seasons. For example in early Spring the flowers are smaller and in late summer the show off dahlias and roses emerge.
By summer we are starting to sneak some of the larger flowers into the boxes and the flowers have more fragrance. A base of fragrant rose, phlox, dahlia maybe an abutilon or two as well as the usual smaller lovelies. These are interspersed wtih lavender, flowering herbs and fragrant leaves.
All our flowers are picked to order so where possible and seasonal we will accommodate your wishes and I am happy to talk through what is available. All flowers are grown by me in my edible flower garden and as you are collecting you are welcome to have a glimpse when you collect.
AVAILABLE – JUNE TO OCTOBER FOR COLLECTION
CONTAINS – 4-5 PUNNETS OF SEASONAL EDIBLE FLOWERS. THE VARIATION IN QUANTITY IS DEPENDANT ON THE SIZE OF FLOWERS THAT YOU WANT. THIS IS SUFFICIENT TO DECORATE THE SHOULDERS AND TOP OF A THREE TIER WEDDING CAKE.
WHY COLLECTION ONLY?
THIS IS A VERY SAD DECISION BUT IT IS SIMPLY BECAUSE DPD (AND OTHER COURIERS AS WELL) ARE UTTERLY UNRELIABLE. THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR GETTING YOUR BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS TO YOU RESTS WITH ME. OBVIOUSLY ONCE THEY ARE CAREFULLY PACKAGED UP WITH CHILLERS AND LEAVE HERE AND ARE IN THE COURIER VAN ON A NEXT DAY BY MIDDAY TIMED DELIVERY THEN THIS IS OUT OF MY CONTROL. IF THE COURIER FAILS TO DELIVER ON TIME THEN THEY REFUND ME LESS THAN £4. (THE COST OF DOWNGRADING THE DELIVERY TIME TO ‘SOMETIME’ THE FOLLOWING WORKING DAY). THERE IS NO COMPENSATION OR REFUND FOR THE VALUE OF FRESH FOOD OR FLOWERS. I AM LEFT WITH THE FULL COST OF REFUNDING YOU – THE NOW VERY UNHAPPY AND STRESSED CUSTOMER (AND IT BREAKS MY HEART TO LET PEOPLE DOWN ON SUCH AN IMPORTANT DAY) OR TO TRY AND PICK AND SEND AGAIN LAST MINUTE. BOTH OF WHICH LEAVES ME AND YOU IN TEARS AND STRESSED AND SECONDLY ME MASSIVELY OUT OF POCKET.IT ONLY TAKES A FEW OF THESE TO IMPACT HUGELY ON THE FINANCES OF A SMALL BUSINESS.
BECAUSE THERE ARE NO LEGAL REPERCUSSIONS FOR POOR SERVICE THEN THIS IS AN INDUSTRY NORM AND SADLY GETTING WORSE. DEALING WITH COURIERS WAS THE SINGLE WORST PART OF MY JOB AT MADDOCKS FARM ORGANICS. IT CAUSED HUGE STRESS FOR CUSTOMERS AND ME AND I HAVE CRIED BUCKETS OVER THIS. SADLY I KNOW MANY SMALL ONLINE FRESH PRODUCE BUSINESSES WHICH SURVIVED COVID BUT HAVE SUBSEQUENTLY FOLDED SIMPLY BECAUSE OF UNRELIABLE COURIER SERVICES.
