This way however may not work as expected for all florists because the small ones may not have the system, in which case you should call them to make your order but should look for others if they do not have a delivery option, discover more here.
Your third alternative is to purchase your flowers locally and export them using an international shipper and ensure they are not prohibited and do not have an extremely heavy vase that will increase your shipment cost. After making the purchase, wrap the bottom side of the flowers using a wet paper towel since you cannot transport wet soil in which case you can use a rubber band to stick them together, then dip the wrapped flowers in water to make sure they don’t die during transit. After this, wrap the out part of the wet towel using a polythene paper bag to protect their carrier box from wetness, get them into the box which is big enough to host them without damage, make small holes at the bottom side of the box, add zip ties to the box, add the note, place a lid and take them for shipment using the 1 to 2 days delivery option, read more here.
