We have provided answers to our frequently asked questions below. If your question is not covered here, feel free to call or email us at hello@wilderfloralco.com

where do you deliver?

We serve most of the San Luis Obispo County. Click here for a list of local neighborhoods, cities, zip codes and more.  

DOES WILDER™ OFFER SAME DAY DELIVERY?

During mainstream flower shop holiday weeks such as Valentine's Day and Mother's Day we do not accept same day orders. For these holidays we request a minimum of one day advance ordering. 

The rest of the year, Wilder accepts orders for same day delivery until 1:00 PM PST Tuesday through Saturday. 
Anything after 1:00 pm can be arranged for delivery as early as the next business day. 

CAN I PICK A SPECIFIC DELIVERY TIME?

Due to a high volume of flower orders, we aren't able to accept specific time constraints. Our team is committed and diligent in trying to get orders out to your lucky recipient as early in the day as possible. We hope you understand! 

CAN I make a change to my order?

If there is a change to the delivery location or date, please notify us as quickly as possible. If we have already dispatched for delivery, we may require an additional delivery faire to re-route or re-attempt elsewhere. We process orders very quickly, so once you place your order, we are unable to make changes to gift messages or designs.

WHERE WILL WILDER™ LEAVE THE FLOWERS IF NO ONE IS HOME?

Our couriers make ONE attempt for delivery. If no one is available to receive the delivery, our highly trained couriers aim to find the best safe, secure place to leave the flowers away from the elements like sun, rain, wind, etc. at the recipients home, apartment or office. If we end up needing to leave your gift, we give a courtesy call to the recipient letting them know to look for a gift (ex: behind the plant by the front door, around the corner in the shade, etc.) We do require a valid working number for the recipient. Wilder is not responsible for the recipient not receiving this courtesy call or for not having a valid working number. Wilder is not responsible for the flowers once they have been dropped off (i.e.: loss, theft, wilting, or the recipient being away on vacation). If we cannot find a safe place, we'll contact the recipient to arrange something under these special circumstances. Wilder reserves the right to contact the recipient under any circumstances to attempt delivery.

Please note, all deliveries have a vase included so that flowers are in water and stay looking great until the time they reach their recipient. Wrapped bouquets are available for pick-up at the shop.

IS IN-STORE PICKUP AVAILABLE FOR ORDERS PURCHASED ONLINE?

Yes, you can order online or via the phone and pick up as always at our corner flower shop on the corner of Chorro and Pismo Street during our shop's open hours.  For online orders, simply select the pick-up at the shop option and select $0.00 for shipping and leave the delivery address field blank. Please note a time in which you expect to drop by the shop. 

How do i care for my flowers to get the longest life possible?

To keep your flowers fresh as long as possible, remove the flowers as they expire so they don't spread bacteria to the rest of the arrangement. We also recommend keeping them away from sunlight and extreme heat or furnaces. Be sure to keep fresh water levels in your vase.

are those peonies?

We LOVE this question and we get it often! Our shop is proudly the only florist on the Central Coast that offers these rare and gorgeous old-world garden roses that so many confuse for the coveted peony. These are as big and luscious as peonies, have a higher fragrance, and the best part is they're available year-round and locally grown!

where do you get your flowers?

Most florists source import flowers and create generic bouquets that cater to the masses. We design thoughtfully with local ingredients, often cut that very morning, to make a true and lasting impression. Our garden roses have not been bred and hybridized to the point of having no fragrance and our orchids are strong and acclimated to our central coast climate.

is WILDER™ an ftd or teleflora florist?

Wilder Floral Co. is a high-end boutique florist, offering creative, well-designed bouquets using a mix of premium garden-style flowers. Owner & Designer Asha's work has many prestigious mentionings in publications, websites and blogs for her design-eye and natural-form bouquets. We do not create out-of-the-box, generic arrangements, nor do we offer FTD or Teleflora goods (mylar balloons, stuffed animals, etc.) or services. 

IS WILDER™ open Monday?

We're open Monday’s to assist with pre-orders for the week. Our retail location does not have any flowers available on Mondays as all of our product comes in fresh from the farms Tuesday through Saturday. We sell out each week and therefore Mondays are our turnover day to transition into the new week and plan for the weeks orders. Any orders that are placed for a Monday will automatically be re-scheduled for a fulfillment day (Tuesday thru Saturday). 

IS WILDER™ open Saturday?

No, however we do deliver on Saturdays. Our retail location is not open to the public on Saturdays as we are generally servicing our wedding clients off-site on Saturdays, however we do offer delivery service for pre-orders on Saturdays.

Is everything that is available listed on the website?

We feature limited design collections on our website. We are continually updating and adding to our offerings based on what is in season. We source lots of locally grown, lush, garden ingredients. If you do not see what you are looking for on our website, feel free to give us a call at the shop to see if the flower you're after is in season. 

why is your menu selective?

We like to think of the customers’ experience at Wilder Floral Co. similarly to a foodie experience at a high-end restaurant, where the chef has carefully selected a few artisanal menu items. The menu options at Wilder Floral Co. are very much based on what ingredients are seasonal and that we've cultivated for the week. Understandably some customers might find it a little surprising that we don’t carry all of the generic flowers that most are used to seeing at every Teleflora and FTD florist, but once they hear the reasons why, most customers seem to really embrace our very selective menu. This allows us to design quality bouquets. We believe in a certain standard for the products we have, which specifically are locally sourced, and that standard follows the product all the way though to the end creation itself. It’s not what a lot of customers are used to from typical florists but we're excited about how well received our style is and how much customers seem to appreciate our ethics.

DOes WILDER™ OFFER A DOZEN RED ROSES?

Our shop does not support the import, mass-produced single-stem red-rose industry. We have very high ethical and environmental standards for the farms we source from. We have created our own proprietary version of a dozen roses, using gorgeous, local old-world garden roses in a mix of ruby red garden sprays and pink single stems. We have found that our customers who give these a try enjoy them far more, as they truly open up to show a full, rosetted bloom and carry a fragrance that genetically modified roses lack. See our Juliette Collection; they're sure to make your loved one's heart sing!
