We take every possible care in packing our plants so they arrive in good condition with you. After all we have invested a lot of time (sometimes years!) growing each one from seed or cutting. However it is sometimes impossible to avoid a little squashing or crumpling of foliage when parcelling up plants for postage. Most plants (if not all) will recover completely from this, given a little time outside.

In the unlikely event that you are unhappy with your plants, please contact us immediately using email (within 7 days of receipt of order) and we will do our very best to resolve the situation. We aim to grow our plants to an extremely high standard, and no responsibility can be accepted for failure after planting as drought, overwatering, pests and diseases can all take their toll. You have statutory protection under the Consumer Contract Regulations, but plants, being perishable, are excluded from parts of this legislation.  We may possibly accept returns and issue a refund, at our discretion, subject to the plants being returned in good condition. Return postage is the responsibility of the customer, and we recommend that you use a recorded service.
