Plants Terms and Conditions
Please note - as it's been a cold start to the 2022 season, some of our plants may be a little smaller than normal. Don't worry though - when the sun does appear, they'll soon grow taller.
We make every effort to ensure that all our plants are of the highest quality and are fully inspected prior to dispatch. If however you feel that the plant received is not in reasonable condition then please contact us IMMEDIATELY. Please bear in mind the following:
- Is it in season? Plants will look different depending on the time of year. Out of season plants may be very bare in winter periods
- The images on the site are generally of a mature plant; what you ordered may have been a plug. A plug is a developing plant, nurtured through the early growth stages in a small container of nutrient rich compost/potting soil, ready to be 'plugged' into your garden. Please check your order confirmation if at all unsure.
- Where plants are supplied in pots, the pot is included in the plant's height specification
It's important that you take an image of plant as soon as possible so there is no doubt as to its condition when it was received. We may request the plant is returned to us for further investigation so we can establish the cause of the problem.
Not Planting Until The Weekend?
Should you receive your plants but have no plans to transplant within 24 hours then please bear in mind they are 'Live'. Please ensure you open the packaging, water the plant and expose it to daylight until you are ready to plant. See care instructions for individual details.
Please note: We are unable to deliver any plants to the Channel Islands, Isle of Man, Republic of Ireland or countries outside of the UK.
Please our full list of product warranties.
Why do some Water Features come without a plug?
We don't always supply a plug with a water feature, it depends on the product, style of feature, pump supplied and likely location that the product maybe installed. All of our products are designed for ease of installation there are however, a specific set of rules set out by the building regulations which must be adhered too: "Building Regulations - Part P" this is a government directive which states that any NEW PERMANENT household or garden electrical supply must be installed by a competent Part P Certified electrician. Some of our products wont require a permanent installation, its worth considering a number of things in order to ensure you safely install your feature or seek the help and advice of a qualified electrician.
- Where are you going to place your product?
- Is there available power already in the garden? - outdoor sockets for example.
- Will it be permanently in this location?
- Do you have existing power in the garden near the location?
If in any doubt seek the advice of a Part P Certified electrician. Full details of Part P available here.

WEEE - Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment
New government regulations called The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations encourages people to recycling old electrical products, rather than throwing them away.Electrical goods are the fastest growing waste stream in the UK, growing by 5% each year. Each year in the UK we go through over 1.2 million tonnes of electrical waste.
Over 75% of waste electrical goods end up in landfill, where lead and other toxins contained in These items can cause soil and water contamination which, in turn, can have a very harmful effect on the environment and human health.
Many of the electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save natural finite resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending waste electrical goods to landfill.
In order to protect the environment for future generations it is important that we are all aware of the consequences of our actions and learn what we can do to make a difference.
Look for this symbol
Electrical and Electronic Equipment that was made after June 2006 should display this symbol on the packaging or product. It means that the product is covered by the WEEE Regulations and every effort should be made to recycle it. All our electrical products display this symbol.
