Family owned and operated, we are committed to offering only the finest floral arrangements and gifts, backed by service that is friendly and prompt. Your satisfaction is guaranteed. We are widely recognized as a leading florist and garden center in Newfoundland. In business since 1947, we have more than seventy years experience working with fresh cut flowers and flowering plants, and producing high quality floral designs. Many of our ornamental and flowering plants are grown on site in our own greenhouses. We understand intimately what is required to ensure the highest quality in everything we sell.

Holland Nurseries was originally established by Dutch horticulturists who came to Newfoundland after World War II. The present owners and staff remain committed to the tradition of excellence, high aesthetic values and honesty in business that is Holland Nurseries’ hallmark.

Our friendly and knowledgeable staff, many of whom have been working at Holland Nurseries for more than 30 years, take pride in providing attentive, personalized service to all of our clients, both individual and corporate. Because all of our customers are important, our professional staff is dedicated to making your experience a pleasant one. That is why we always go the extra mile to make your floral gift perfect.

We can also relay orders to Teleflora affiliated florists in communities across Newfoundland and Labrador and throughout North America. Orders for delivery in any community outside our immediate delivery area will be relayed to an affiliated florist in that community.

We provide limited delivery service by local taxis serving communities on the Southern Shore, from Bay Bulls to Trepassey, and communities in the St. Mary’s Bay area. Delivery to these communities can only be provided from Monday to Friday on days when these local taxis are running. Same-day delivery service to these rural communities cannot be guaranteed as the service is subject to the running schedules of the local taxis involved. A shipping and handling charge of $8.00 per order plus the delivery fee per item charged by the individual taxi services involved applies to all orders delivered to these rural communities.

A wire service charge of $8.00, over and above the price listed on this website for specific products purchased and the $10.00 delivery fee paid to the filling florist, will be charged on any order that is to be delivered outside our immediate delivery area. In any case where we are unable to find an affiliated florist to fill the order for the total amount you have paid, we will contact you to make suitable alternative arrangements before charging any amount to your credit card.

Orders must be received before 1:00 p.m. in the recipient's time zone to assure same-day delivery. Orders received after that time will be delivered the following day.

We will do our best to accommodate deliveries at specific times of day, but we cannot guarantee it. In cases where it is uncertain whether anyone will be present to accept delivery of a flower order, we may call the intended recipient in advance to schedule a suitable delivery time. If you specifically request that we not call ahead and multiple delivery attempts are required to complete a delivery, an additional delivery fee may be charged for each required delivery attempt.

We offer same day delivery Monday through Saturday on orders received before 1:00 p.m. on the requested delivery date. Delivery service on Sundays is limited to local area hospitals and funeral homes. Other deliveries requested for Sunday may be delivered the following business day.

To help assure on-time delivery during periods of peak demand, please place your order at least 1 day prior to the requested delivery date. In particular, same day local delivery cannot be guaranteed around  Christmas and New Year's (December 18-31), Valentine's Day (February 12-14), Easter, Administrative Professionals Week, and Mother's Day (May 6-14). 

For rush orders, an Express 2-hour delivery service at an extra charge of $10.00 is available as available as an add-on item at checkout. However, this service may not be available on special occasions such as Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Admisistrative Professionals Day and the period immediately before Christmas because of the exceptionally large numer of deliveries that have to be made in a short time on these occasions.

Delivery of orders to rural route addresses or cemeteries cannot be guaranteed.

Substitution Policy

When placing your order, please bear in mind that each floral arrangement is custom-made. Occasionally, substitutions for particular flowers shown in arrangements pictured on this website are necessary because availability of seasonal flowers varies. The vase or keepsake container used in your arrangement may also differ if the one shown on the website is not available on the date when your order is filled. In the event any substitution is necessary, our professional floral designers take care to maintain the overall style of the arrangement you order, using appropriate flowers and similar vases or keepsake containers of equal value.

If we are unable to provide an arrangement similar to what you order from this website, we will try to contact you by phone or e-mail to discuss possible substitutions with you before filling the order. However, if we are unable to reach you before the specified delivery time, we may have to substitute the closest flowers of equal value in colors available at that time to ensure your intended recipient receives their flowers at the intended time.
