Yes! You can place your order through our website, over the phone, email or Instagram DM and we can coordinate a day/time for pick up. We currently offer pick up between 11am - 5pm Tuesday - Saturday.
Can I customize my bouquet?
Of course. Selections vary daily, but we welcome your requests and will do our best to honour your wishes. Please call the shop in advance of the delivery date if you have a very specific flower request.
Do the flowers include a vase?
Not always, that is up to you. We offer “cut flower bouquets” that the recipient can place in their own vase, or our designer can arrange blooms in a vase “vase arrangement”.
Can I include a personalized message with my order?
Yes. All of our notes are handwritten and it is our pleasure to communicate your message.
I see you have 4", 6", 8", 10" plants listed on your website. What does that mean?
We receive our plants from the growers in different diameters of plastic grow/nursery pots. So when we say 4", 6", 8", or 10" we are referring to the diameter of the grow/nursery pot and not the height or width of the plant.
I would like to purchase a ceramic pot for my plant, but I don't see it online. How can I purchase one?
We are more than happy to discuss plant pot options with you if there isn't the one you want available online. Feel free to give us a call 613.232.1733 or email us email@example.com.
Are all the plants shown on your website everything that is available in the shop?
With both an online and retail presence sometimes our plants find their forever homes before we are able to offer them online. Keep an eye out on our social media for news regarding our plants. Check out our Instagram Stories @Scrimsflorist as we unpack new plants weekly! Our selection changes often, so come visit!
