3. Returns Policy
3.1 We believe all plants sent out by us are true to name and every effort is made to ensure they are of the best quality. All descriptions, sizes, shape and colour are for guidance only. Pot sizes may vary from time to time from the sizes stated online dependent on seasonal growth of plants and supply, we will however always supply the best plants available.
3.2 Please bear in mind that plants look different depending on what time of year it is. If you choose a nice leafy-looking deciduous plant in the winter it is going to turn up looking pretty bear, the plant is out of season and will perk up when the weather does. In winter, perennial plants will not show above the soil level in a pot, this doesn’t mean you have been sent a dead plant, this is perfectly normal for the season.
3.3 Very occasionally, and despite the considerable experience of our dispatch team and couriers, items can become damaged in transit. Before you sign for the goods, please inspect them to ensure that they have arrived undamaged. We pack our goods extremely carefully and damages are rare, however, once you have signed for the goods it may not be possible to prove that the damage occurred before they came into your possession. If the goods are left without a signature, please make sure you contact us within 24 hours of the delivery taking place to notify us of any damages or shortages.
Damages correctly notified will be replaced free of charge. However if you choose to cancel the order at that point rather than accept a free replacement, you must return the goods to us at your expense (see ‘Returns’ above).
3.4 We offer no guarantee to plants that have been damaged due to adverse weather conditions, neglect or due to poor planting conditions.
3.5 Refunds are not issued on planters that have been modified from standard specifications ie. drainage holes that we have been requested to drill.
4. Cancellation Policy
You have 14 working days in which to cancel your order if you change your mind. If you should cancel your order, this must be done in writing, you have 14 days to return the items from the day of cancellation. You will be responsible for the return of the goods to us in the condition in which they were sent. We will not pay for the goods to be returned to us, for your protection we recommend insurance is taken out and the return is a recorded delivery service.
To receive a full refund, goods must be returned in the same packaging, in their original condition, undamaged and unused.
4.1 Business to business or ‘Trade’ transactions take place outside the parameters of the Consumer Contract regulations.
