Damaged In Transit

If your purchase is damaged in transit, please contact us within 14 days informing us of the problem. You can return it within 28 days and either get a replacement or a refund. Please make sure you give us your order number and return the item in its original packaging.

Damaged or Defective Goods


If you receive a product that is defective, please contact us within 14 days informing us of the problem. You can return it within 28 days and either get a replacement or a refund. Please make sure you give us your order number and return the item in its original packaging. If the product is covered by a manufacturer's warranty, please contact the manufacturer directly.


If you receive a plant that is in bad condition when you take it out of the box, contact us immediately. We will then ask you to send us a photograph so that there is no doubt as to it's condition on arrival with you, as opposed to what it looks like by the time you return it to us. Bear in mind that plants look different depending on what time of year it is. If you choose a nice leafy-looking deciduous shrub in the winter, remember it's going to turn up looking pretty bare. It doesn't mean there's anything wrong with it, just that it's out of season and will perk up when the weather does. Perennial plants won't even show above the soil level in a pot during the winter, but that doesn't mean you've been fobbed off with a bunch of soil. However, provided that you have contacted us within 14 days of receiving the defective plant we will be happy to arrange for a refund or replacement once we have received the pictures and determined the cause of the problem.

1 year guarantee on plants, shrubs, trees and perennials

Our fully hardy shrubs, trees and perennials (excluding annuals and biennials) are all guaranteed for 1 years after you've bought them. If the plant fails in the first year, send us a picture of the plant along with your order reference number to Once we have determined the cause of the problem we will endeavour to replace it or refund you. This guarantee does not include any plants damaged due to lack of watering or lack of proper horticultural care, so plants will not be replaced if the plant care guidelines, sent out with the order, have not been followed. Also, because these are completely beyond our control, we cannot be responsible for any airborne pests and diseases such as box blight, fungal leaf spot or aphids. You will be charged for delivery on replacement items.


To cancel an order, please drop us an e-mail at with details of the order you are cancelling. A charge may be made if the cancellation is done after the order or a part of the order has been dispatched.


You can return anything you're not happy with within 28 days of receiving it provided you have contacted us within 14 days of receipt to advise of its return and that it's not something you've tried out and not liked! The analogy would be buying a dress, wearing it for a party and then deciding you no longer want it! The only exceptions to this are Cut Flowers and Christmas Trees.

We will not pay the costs of returning an item to us.

Until we receive the goods you are returning, they are your responsibility. For your protection and peace of mind, we recommend you use a recorded delivery service to return things.

To get a full refund, simply return the item to us in its original condition, in its original packaging within 28 days of cancellation.

If the item has been damaged, used or is not returned in its original packaging, we reserve the right to withhold a percentage of the refund value if the item needs to be reduced in price for resale.

Refunds can be sent back only to the original payment method used in a charge. It’s not possible to send a refund to a different destination (e.g., another card or bank account).

Refunds to expired or canceled cards are handled by the your card issuer and, in most cases, credited to the your replacement card. If no replacement exists, the card issuer usually delivers the refund to you using an alternate method (e.g., check or bank account deposit).

Please note: If you are returning machinery, the machine must be drained of all fluids and boxed or wrapped securely.


If you order a Ready-Made Border, Plant Combination or Border Design and a plant in the scheme is unavailable, we reserve the right to replace it with something similar. You can rely on us to choose a plant that's not only of a comparable size and price but one that fits in with the overall design we've worked on with you.
