COVID19 Protocol

Due to Covid19, all our deliveries will be contactless. Our team will be wearing masks and will sanitise between each delivery. They will also stay a minimum two- metre gap from you. This means that they may place your flowers on your doorstep or at your gate to avoid contact. Our teams will be wearing masks throughout their shifts, and sanitising between deliveries, however, please wash your hands immediately after receiving and opening a gift box or unwrapping your flowers, before touching anything else.

Subscription Posies

Subscription posies may not be the posy indicated on the website for same day delivery. Please note that you will be liable for the first three payments of your subscription order. Should you wish to cancel before the third delivery has gone out, you will still be charged for it. Should you wish to cancel or pause anytime thereafter, you are free to do so at no charge, however please allow for a 24 hour notice period to confirm and finalize your request. Please write in to hello@petalandpost.co.za should you wish to make changes regarding your subscription.

Posy Care

It is important to put your flowers into water as soon as they are delivered. Please remove any greenery from the stems so that no leaves will be submerged in the water and cut the stems at an angle 1 inch from the tip. Keep your flowers in a cool environment out of direct sunlight and away from fireplaces, heaters, and fruit bowls. For optimum results and long lasting flowers, change the water and re-trim the stems every 2 days. Flowers thrive in ice water!

Signature Posy Food

Each posy comes with a complimentary bottle of Petal&Post Posy Food. Decant the entire bottle into 1 litre of water for best results. Please note, the flower food is not suitable for human consumption.

Stem Variations

Each stem we send is unique and so on rare occasions, colours may vary or our farms will substitute stems to give you the highest-quality Posy. We try, wherever possible, to always send something similar and equally as beautiful! If we do have to make a change to your Posy, we will be sure to supply only an upgraded stem as a substitution.


In the unlikely event that you are dissatisfied with the condition of your posy, please email in to hello@petalandpost.co.za with your order reference number, your complaint, and a photo of your posy within 12 hours of receiving your item. Refunds and replacements will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
