If you have any concerns these must be addressed within 14 days of receipt accompanied by photographic evidence along with details of the invoice. After this time, as with all living organisms, the plants may encounter issues due to conditions outside of our control.

Can I return excess plants?

Due to phytosanitary requirements we are unable to accept plants back onto the site – as soon as stock leaves the site they are exposed to conditions outside our control and accepting them back could endanger the health of the stock on the nursery.
