Shipping & Delivery

We mail your plants via Australia Post within Australia, where possible. Otherwise, orders go via courier.
We pack and ship every weekday, except the Friday before a Monday public holiday. Shipping to PO Boxes is available.
You will be sent a notification email when your order is shipped. Please allow 5-7 working days from shipping for delivery on average. In peak gardening times or public holiday times (eg early spring, Easter, Christmas) your order might take 10 working days or more.
WA Shipping : We ship to WA once a week, at a schedule that minimises the time the plants spend in transit. Please therefore allow 14 days from shipping notification for your parcel to arrive.

UPDATE : WA Shipping resumed 23 June. Read more on current shipping schedules at the AusPost website

Shipping Rates

Postage and packing starts at $15.95. P&P will vary depending on the size of your order. Orders over $260 are P&P free

We use Australia Post Standard Parcel delivery rates, based on the weight and number of items you order. Our boxes are designed to fit 16 plants, so if you want to maximise your order value, order in multiples of 16 plants. Our Native Bouquet is shipped separately by Express Post and therefore incurs an individual shipping charge of $15.95 per address.

Go to MY CART before you check out, and enter your postcode to get an estimate of the shipping costs for your order.
WA Shipping : All orders incur a $10 surcharge as a contribution to the cost of biosecurity inspections.

Order Changes

We recommend opening an account - this means your order will be saved for 7 days, for you to amend and add to. You can also add items to a wish list, then transfer them to your cart when you are ready to pay (if they are still in stock).

We can't add to or change your order once you checkout and pay. If you cancel your order there is a $15 charge to cover admin time. The balance will be refunded to you within ten working days. If you want your order held until a specific date there is a $15 fee to cover staff maintenance of your plants. See our Frequently Asked Questions page for more info.

We can't send plants directly to TAS and NT due to the cost and complexity of required state biosecurity Quarantine Inspections. We are endeavouring to find a cost effective solution to this situation in future.

Returns & Replacements

We guarantee the quality of our tube stock - we make sure every plant leaves us in ideal condition. We hydrate and treat each plant before carefully packing it for the journey. We will replace or refund any plants that do not arrive in good condition.

If you have a problem with your order: You need to let us know by email or phone as soon as possible, within 7 days of delivery, and supply photo evidence to our customer service team, via email. We cannot issue replacements or sort out order problems via a social media message.
