Why should I send flowers during COVID-19?
The Simple Answer: Flowers make Birmingham smile.
Everyone is experiencing chaos right now in day to day life. Flowers bring happiness and joy to all situations. There is no better time than now to send flowers to a loved one or friend who may be stuck inside working from home, raising kids, or even self-quarantining. People need flowers during this time.
Flowers brighten up all spaces and science has proven that flowers have a positive emotional impact on people. Read more about the Rutgers University study here:

How is Norton's Florist handling COVID-19 (Coronavirus)?
Cameron, Gus and the Norton's Florist family want to ensure you enjoy your gift with confidence.
Norton's has put the following policies in place to keep our customers safe:
1. Designers and Sales Staff - Routinely wipe down all workstation surfaces, multiple times each day with disinfectant wipes or spray.
2. Store Staff - Routinely wipe down counter areas with disinfectant wipes or spray after each customer, as well as use hand sanitizer after each customer.
3. Delivery Staff - Do not ask for signatures from customers, and use hand sanitizer after each delivery to help prevent the spread of germs.In addition, we have now transitioned to contact-less delivery. We will contact the recipient prior to delivery and let them know we are going to leave the flowers on their porch. Our driver will then wait 3 minutes for them to receive their flowers.
While our new policies go much beyond these items (much more related to employee safety), we feel it necessary for our customers to know the steps that we are taking to keep customers safe, and prevent the spread of Coronavirus to the best of our ability.
We know how important it is to have flowers, plants and gift baskets delivered for every special occasion - birthday, get well, anniversary, new baby, or sympathy - as your florist, as Alabama's largest florist, we are committed to do our part to prevent the spread. We appreciate you and your business, and wish you a beautiful day!
