Most San Diego florists and flower shops will request same-day flower delivery orders that are placed by 1 pm local time. There are some merchants that provide later cut-off times if the delivery is being made within a 1 to 3-mile radius of their location. In these instances, the latest would be at 5 pm. 

Same-day San Diego flower delivery and expedited shipping are typically a $10 to $20 surcharge on most flower delivery orders. The size of the arrangement and distance to the recipient’s location can also be a factor when delivery fees are being calculated.
