We've all forgotten about an imminent birthday, anniversary or Valentine's Day present – and we’re not proud of it. But, luckily, that's why same-day flower delivery services exist.

Order from these florists and plant nurseries by around midday and they'll be delivered later that evening, and no one has to know that it was last minute.

Bud Flowers has changed hands a few times over the years (it's been going since 1986), but the store's premier fresh flower arrangements and giftware have remained as good as ever.  Owned by the talented Meridee Fraser, the blooms at Bud Flowers are thoughtfully arranged to maximise colour and proportion. The florists offer same-day delivery within a 50km radius if you order by 4pm (order earlier if your delivery is going to a business address, as most won't take deliveries after 5pm). The company will also send potted plants (think fiddle-leaf figs, orchids and cactuses) and dried bouquets for something longer lasting. 

Flower Temple claims to be ‘more than just a florist’. In addition to super-fancy bouquets, this luxury flower store also offers gift packages and a gift-wrapping service.

Saturday deliveries must be ordered before 2pm on the Friday before, and Flower Temple only delivers on Sundays two days (sometimes one) of the year: Valentine's Day and Mother's Day.

For a wide range of options, including lilies, orchids and sunflowers in a glass bowl, Flowers Across Melbourne might be worth checking out for Valentine's Day. One of our favourite bouquets is the 'Rambling Roses', a classic combo of (you guessed it) pink roses, baby's breath and native gum foliage for an extra pop of colour. If you order by 2pm Monday-Friday or 10am Saturday, Flowers Across Melbourne will deliver your bunch the same day. The team also deliver on Sundays for very special occasions (Mother's Day and Valentine's Day).

If you want to choose what bouquet you're sending, this one might not be for you. But if you want to leave it up to the talented florists at the Posy Story, it could be just the thing. Every day the florist creates an arrangement and posts it online, and if you order before noon (or before the posies sell out) a beautiful flower arrangement will be delivered throughout Melbourne on the same day. If you love it, you can subscribe and get flowers delivered weekly, fortnightly or monthly. Plus there's the option to send gifts like tea, coffee, Espresso Martinis, wine, biscuits and body products.

Flox Botanical does things a little differently from your average flower delivery service. For one, this Melbourne-based business is committed to zero waste, so it has committed to next day delivery so your flowers are always fresh. Secondly, it's taken the idea of at-home DIY projects to the next level by letting customers put their florist caps (flower crowns?) on and put together their own bunches. Flox Botanical will ship you a flat-packed collection of seasonally fresh flowers sourced from local Melbourne flower growers and hand-deliver them to your doorstep (or the doorstep of someone who deserves a treat!).
