FAQ

Why only Monday-Friday?

We are a small, hands-on bunch. Weekends are our days in the field to visit local farms and source the best in seasonal blooms. Plus, the city farmers markets are really accessible on the weekends when you're (hopefully) not working the 9-5.  We'd love you to meet our local growers in person! Due to Covid, we'd delivering weekly instead of daily, inhabiting more of a CSA model.

Can I select my own flowers?

PxP offers a florist choice bouquet only. You select the size and we take care of the rest. Feel free to put your color and style preferences in the Extra Details box at checkout, but our priority is getting you fresh, original arrangements -- this means letting farmers harvests what is fresh daily and letting our designers work their magic with those ingredients.

How come some calendar days are blocked off for delivery?!

We will occasionally limit our daily deliveries to ensure our customers continue to receive the quality of flowers they have come to love from us!

Why does the 'whats growing' page change?

We bring you what mother nature has to offer. As the seasons change, so does the selection of locally grown flowers.

What is the deadline for same day ordering?

Same day ordering ends at 11am each day, Monday through Friday!

How are my petals delivered?

Bouquets are delivered by our team of lightning fast bicycle couriers -- occasionally, we also come by foot or by subway or for large scale event work orders, by car. You can expect a friendly, professional hand-off and an arrangement that comes without at wasted packaging -- just the long-lasting flowers and your words typed on a wildflower seeded card.

Can I set-up recurring home or office delivery?

Of course! We are happy to assist with recurring weekly delivery. You can set delivery dates up for yourself on the subscription services page or email us at info@petalbypedal.com to arrange.

Is there a time frame for flower delivery?

Flower delivery is guaranteed by end of the business day and we factor in whether you are ordering to a residence or an office when we plan our routes, with commercial deliveries having priority in the daily order.

What is the delivery zone?

We deliver from the Southern tip of Manhattan all the way up to 86th St, East to West in Manhattan. In Brooklyn we deliver to the following neighborhoods: Downtown Brooklyn, Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens, Boerum Hill, Park Slope, Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, Dumbo, Vinegar Hill, Gowanus, Red Hook, Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Bushwick.

Flower Tips

Did You Know

Most cut flowers sold in the U.S. are imported? After spending days in planes, trucks and coolers, they arrive laced with harmful chemicals. Join the slow flowers movement and use local whenever possible!

Arrange

When arranging, use stronger stems, like Sunflower, Roses, to prop-up soft, weaker stems (i.e. Ranunculus, Sweet Pea). Scatter the stronger stems throughout the bouquet then use the weaker stems to fill in the holes. Go for balance, not symmetry or perfection.

Maintain

Pick off dead guard petals as the flowers age and make sure to keep the water clean. If some die faster than others, simply remove them and arrange a new, smaller bouquet!

Handle

Hold a flower by its stem, not the head, keeping the petals protected.

Water

Provide fresh water daily to avoid bacteria growing in the vase.

Vessel

While PxP has a thing for Mason Jars, the use of non-traditional items -- mugs, candle glass, wine bottles -- is a great, creative way to show off your blooms.

Sharp Shears

Always use clean, sharp shears when cutting the stems in order to avoid damage of the delicate stem tissue. Do this every other day to keep the flowers drinking efficiently.

Air

Keep the flowers off of direct heat or air conditioning to make sure nothing accelerates the aging of your bouquet!

Branchy Flowers

Splintering the end of the stem of branchy-stemmed flowers, such as lilac and hydrangea, enables the bloom to drink more easily. When giving the flower a fresh cut in your home, make multiple cuts to the bottom of the stem with your shears.
