    Hi there.
    Does anyone know any companies that you can send flowers to Australia from (ordering from the UK).
    Interflora's cheapest bouquet or plant for Oz is nearly £50 which is a bit much!
    I have looked online and there are a few but has anyone used any they'd reccomend?
    Thanks.

  3. Google florists who operate in the delivery area and see what they can offer. We have used various random ones, so can't make a recommendation.

    A packet of seeds ought to be cheap enough to post.
     
  5. Have you looked on the Moonpig website?

    The Oz customs have hysterics at the thought of even one seed entering their country let alone a whole packet.

    Even Dame Edna's favourites, Gladiolas?
     
  8. Try looking at the interflora Australia site rather than the general site.

    Yes, or Google 'local flower delivery' for the town or area in Australia itself. The local shops should be cheaper and as you are cutting out the website fee for connecting you to them (pretty much how Interflora works) then there should be some $$'s to save. To be honest, probably not that many, though.
     
  10. I'd go with thte contact a local florist, I've done this when sending flowers within the UK, Inteflora know you won't see the flowers so send rubinsh (in my experience, my brother and I once both sent flowers to the same person, I used local, he used intaflora and we both arrived at the recipients a couple of days later and you could see the difference even though the recipient had tried to mix the flowers.

    Oh and if there is a problem with a credit card - use paypal
