Your responsibility to water and maintain plants and trees: Due to the nature of the majority of products we sell garden plants and trees are perishable products sensitive to watering, light, wind etc. and if you would like to return your products to us it is your responsibility to water and maintain the plants and trees we delivered prior to collection. If at the time of collection / delivery the plants and/or trees you are returning show signs of negligence we will be unable to issue a refund.
Cost of the return: usually cost of the refund equals to delivery cost you originally paid to get your products delivered. Where applicable it will be deducted out of the total amount of your order or it will have to be paid separately at the time arranging your refund.
Good Return timing: Our standard return policy of products you don’t like and would like to return – 14 days after your order delivery. However many products we sell qualify as perishable goods and cannot be returned after delivery.
Perishable goods: due to the nature of the products we sell (i.e. garden plants and trees) qualify as perishable goods therefore cannot be returned to us after delivery due to removal of transport packaging when opened and due to stress during transportation leading to loss of shape and original quality.
