Damage Limitations

We wish you to be very happy with your purchase and will try our hardest to ensure this. Occasionally though a leaf may come off during transport or the travel pot may crack.  In most cases, the stray leaf will simply push back on.  The purpose of the travel pot is just to contain that small amount of concrete, that weights the plant and holds the stems together. They are not intended for decorative purposes or in fact to be seen at all. Because of the nature of thin plastic containing heavy concrete they can occasionally damage. Please be aware they will still transfer into your own planter and be potted up in the same way (please see our planting guide if you need help). It will not detract in any way from the plant you have bought, as it is the plant or tree you have bought and not the packaging. We will only uphold these as damage requests if there is more substantial damage to the plant or tree.

How will my plant or tree arrive?

Most of our trees and plants are delivered whole. The branches and the foliage may need to be arranged into shape. To do this stand the tree upright and starting from the base gently bend and tease the leaves and branches out. If you require any assistance or are unsure please ring us on 01524 851017 and we will be delighted to help.

Generally, your tree will arrive boxed. For larger orders, a pallet may be used.  The couriers will only drop off, they do not unwrap, position, or carry the goods.
