Still want to send Mum flowers this Mother's Day? These are the online florists still operating right now

You can still safely send mum flowers for her special day.

By Maddison Hockey
This year, Mother's Day is going to look a little different.
With strict social distancing rules in place, it's likely that most of us will have to spend this special day apart from our mothers.
But, there are still ways we can celebrate this occasion, and show our Mums how much we love them.
If you're unsure what to get your mum this Mother's Day or can't visit her due to our new the self-isolation restrictions, but you still want to send her a gift from afar, there's one present that never fails to brighten her day and can be easily arranged – flowers.
While the COVID-19 restrictions have led to closure of many businesses, including florists, there are some florists still operating, of course with added safety measures in place.
So if you'd like to gift Mum a bunch of flowers, we've rounded up some of our favourite florists across Australia that are still delivering this Mother's Day.
