Frequently Asked Questions
We try to put in as many plants as possible in one box. However, every box has its limits. According to the size of the plants in your cart our website will calculate how many boxes we need to ship out your complete order. When we need more than one box to ship your total order an extra shipping fee will be calculated at the check out. At the check out there will also be a notification visible telling you not all plants fit in one box. According to this, you can always alter your shopping basket.
After your have finished your order we can only change the shipped address up to a certain point. Changing the address is only possible before we have processed your order*. At that stage we have not yet informed the nursery and shipping company. Changing your address in not a problem in that case.
Once we have processed your order or if your package has already been shipped out, making changes in the shipping address is no longer possible. The risks of changing an address are far too great. We apologies for the inconvenience.
If we notice an error in your address, or if we have doubts we will of course contact your before we process your order. As you could understand this might cause a little delay.
*If you want or need to change the shipping address please e-mail us directly after you have finalized your order in our shop. You can e-mail us on email@example.com. Please provide all the correct information, including your order number, at once to avoid delays. We bear no responsibilities for sort of delay or damage caused by an incorrect addresses being filled out at the check out.
The shipping costs per country can be found below. Shipping costs can vary per country. The correct shipping costs will always be visible in your cart at the check out. Most of the plants we sell in our shop can be combined and shipped together in one box. When you have too many plants in your cart, or the plants are too big to combine an extra box is calculated. At the check out you’ll also see a notice about this. In that case shipping costs might be doubled.

There might be a (short) delay in the shipping process or there could be an interruption in the system of the transport company. Don’t worry all too much straight away. Check the tracking information at a later moment that day again. If there’s no new information within 1 or 2 days, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

If the information shows up as ‘package delivered’ but you haven’t received you parcel, please always check at your surrounding neighbors.

We will contact the transport company to see if we can get some clarity. If it would happen that your parcel is lost we’ll send out a new parcel to your address.
Delays in shipping
Please do know that delays in the shipping process are always possible and can’t be avoided completely. In the last couple of years we’ve seen delays at shipping companies on and off. If you’re ordering a plant for a special occasion, make sure to purchase the plant ahead of time. Especially during important holidays delays are possible. If you’re package has been delivered too late, make sure to contact us to see if there is any kind of compensation possible.
If your package couldn’t be delivered due to one of the following reasons, claims can’t be processed: incorrect address provided by the customer, package is denied by the customer, package has not been collected at the parcel shop within the given time frame.
Normally packages are delivered within the normal shipping time indicated. It can always happen that packages have a (short) delay. Always keep an eye on your track&trace information. Are you worried sick? Feel free to contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do our best to help you out.
If a delay happens, in most cases this is during the various holidays throughout the year. However in recent year we’ve also seen that Covid-19 sometimes causes delays, due to conflicting regulations in different countries or shortness of staff at the transport companies. The postal services will do their utmost best to deliver all packages on time, but (short) delays can never be avoided completely unfortunately.
In some cases a compensation is applicable. If your order arrives late, please contact us directly (or within 48 hours at last) at email@example.com. We will contact PostNL and see if there is a reason for the delay and if a compensation is valid. Please know that only PostNL can make a final decision on any kind of compensation, this is not a guarantee of any kind.
Once we receive your order, it will be processed within 1 to 5 work days. Orders that have been processed are normally shipped within 1 to 3 workdays, from Monday to Friday. These rules apply for all countries we ship to.
We use our specially designed plant boxes, which holds the plant steady during transport. Because of the folding techniques from the box there is no plastic required to seal the box. The plant is fixated in the box, even when you turn it upside down!
