terms and conditions

These terms and conditions (T&Cs) govern your use of the Plant & Pot Limited (Plant & Pot) online store (the Site).  By using the Site and placing an online order, you agree to and are bound by these T&Cs.

Plant & Pot is located and operates from Auckland, New Zealand (NZ), and the laws of NZ govern these T&Cs and your use of the Site.  Plant & Pot delivers to NZ addresses only.

Interpretation

On this Site and in these T&Cs we sometimes refer to plants as “goods”, “foliage” or “greenery”.  You accept that they mean the same.

Due to natural variations, you accept that plants supplied will inevitably vary in size, colour and/or shape compared to their photographs on this Site.

Pricing

All prices (and promotions) shown are in NZD and are subject to change without notice. All transactions will be billed in NZD.

Orders

Plant & Pot has sole discretion to accept or reject any order (or cancellation request or redelivery request) or any variation or modification of an order. Plant & Pot reserves the right to cancel and/or refund any order placed and/or paid for.

Delivery

Plant & Pot will make all reasonable efforts to ship/dispatch goods to the recipient on the next available shipment/dispatch date following payment. However, delivery may be delayed due to various matters, including but not limited to public holidays, availability of stock and/or demand for certain products.

However, time is not of the essence under these T&Cs and Plant & Pot shall not be liable for any failure (or delay) to deliver for any reason.

If we, or our delivery agents, have not been able to deliver the goods on the first attempt, for whatever reason, redelivery costs will apply and these will be charged to you (the customer).

Plant & Pot does not accept liability for any loss or damage to goods that occurs after delivery.

Refund Policy

Unfortunately we do not offer exchanges or refunds for goods purchased online due to change of mind.

If you receive faulty or incorrect goods we will offer an exchange or refund. However, in relation to incorrect goods you acknowledge that, as set out above, due to their nature plants supplied will inevitably vary in size, colour and/or shape compared to their photographs on this Site.

Faulty goods will be assessed by Plant & Pot and either replaced or refunded.

Please email us at hello@plantandpot.nz about incorrect or faulty goods within 3 working days of receiving your order. We may ask you to send us a photo of the goods.

If we assess the goods as faulty or incorrect, we’ll refund you all associated shipping costs. If we ask you to return the goods, please repackage them securely as you are responsible for returning goods. Plant & Pot does not accept responsibility for packages we do not ship ourselves. We will contact you once we have received the goods.

If we issue a refund it will be processed in the original form of payment and we will aim to do this within 5 working days. You’ll be notified of the refund via email to the email address provided with the original order. Please note: your bank may require additional days to process this transaction.

  • Washing your hands thoroughly after any contact with plants, soil or fertilisers.
  • Not ingesting or inhaling material from plants or soil or fertilisers, and avoiding skin contact with plants as required (including but not limited to plant sap and the spines of cacti). Some plants or part thereof may be toxic.

Please seek medical advice immediately if you are concerned about your wellbeing, or those you are responsible for.
