2. Basis of the Sale
1) An agreement to sell you plants is made on these terms when we accept an order made by you via our website. The description of the goods, the price, and delivery costs are set out on the order page. We will confirm acceptance of your order on screen.
2) We aim to supply all our customers with strong healthy plants. Normally Auriculas will be supplies in 9cm pots, Pelargoniums in 9cm pots, Iris and Hemerocallis bareroot, and all other herbaceous plants in 2litre pots. There will be at times variation in size between different plants as is inevitable with a living product. All photographs and information on the website are for purposes of guidance only. While we make every effort to take photos, which truly represent the plant, colour will not always be 100% true – in particular it is sometimes difficult to accurately represent different shades of red.
3. Details of the order
1) We undertake that if we accept your order the plants supplied to you will be true to name and in the quantities specified by yourself in the order.
2) Orders are accepted at our sole discretion but are normally accepted if the goods are available, if the order reflects current pricing, if you are based within the current delivery area and if your credit or account card is authorised for the transaction
3) An Order may be cancelled if it is unfairly prejudicial to our business interests.
3) The plants which can be ordered via our website are only available for delivery to you if you are based in our delivery area
4) When despatching we reserve the right not to supply any plants ordered if we are not happy that the plants are of a sufficient quality. In this event we will endeavour to contact you prior to despatch to agree with you acceptable substitutes. Please, if you can, provide us with a mobile phone number. This can greatly facilitate last minute communications prior to despatch of your plants. If we are unable to contact you prior to despatch we will send only the plants ordered which are of an acceptable standard without substitutes.
