All orders, in whatever terms, are accepted subject to the following terms and conditions.

Availability of Products
The availability of plants and the way they look is very often seasonal. This together with the nature of live plants means that we cannot always provide an accurate stock level online and may result on some rare occasions plants being out of stock. We will always try to inform you as soon as possible if plants are out of stock or not yet ready for sale.
We do retain the right to reject an order if for example the goods are out of stock with little chance of us being able to fulfil your order or if payment for the transaction has not been satisfactorily completed within 14 days.
Pricing and Labelling
When buying online the price of items is clearly displayed on the individual products pages and again in your shopping basket. The online price is the price you are agreeing to pay when making a purchase. We reserve the right to cancel all or part of an order where there has been a genuine pricing error online.
Appearance & Description
The description of the goods, quantity and price are those set out in your order. Variations in size shape and colour is seasonally inevitable.
If you are in any doubt about the current size or appearance of any plants then we would advise that you contact us to request the relevant information and request a photograph of our actual stock before ordering.
It is critical that you provide an accurate delivery address and that the goods can actually be delivered to that address. We can only deliver to mainland addresses in England, Wales and parts of Scotland. We cannot usually deliver to anywhere off the UK mainland but just to check, please contact us because our carriers may deliver but apply surcharge.
Our standard delivery is charged at a fixed rate based on product size and weight and fulfilled via Royal Mail on Second Class delivery by default, with the option of First Class for an additional charge. We estimate that delivery will be made 7-10 days from the date of ordering although we try to deliver before this.
We will not accept any liability for loss or damage whatsoever for goods once they have been delivered in your absence.
Returns will be dealt with on a case by case basis and for some products are not available due to the nature of the product, however an agreement over refunds can still be met.

With some plants it is very difficult to tell which variety they are without foliage or flowers, we supply all plant on good faith that they are labelled correctly. If you discover that a plant you have purchased from us has flowered and is not the plant you ordered then please contact us as soon as possible after making the discovery and where possible supply photographic evidence of the error.

We aim to acknowledge all complaints within 24 hours of receiving them (Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm) and to provide you with a suitable resolution in a reasonable and timely manner.
Non-delivery of Goods
Upon dispatch we will send you an automated dispatch notice to let you know when your order will be delivered.
We aim to dispatch all orders within 7-10 days of receiving them so if you have not received your order after 10 days from the order date please let us know the following day so we can track down your parcel if necessary. Due to the nature of dispatching live plants any delay in informing us could lead to the plants perishing and we are unable to accept liability if we aren’t informed at the earliest opportunity.
Our Quality Guarantee
All of our plants are dispatched as healthy, top-quality produce. Any plants that fail in a short period of time following receipt of order may be due to improper care or substandard environment.
If you think a plant you’ve bought from us has failed, please perform a ‘Scratch Test’ by carefully scratching off some bark from a branch and the main stem. If the plant is still green under the bark the likelihood of survival is good if it is brown in both locations then it will probably not survive.
