Sale Agreement This agreement for us to sell you Goods is made on these terms and conditions when we accept an order made by you on our Web Site. The details of the order including description of the Goods, price, VAT, any insurance and delivery costs are shown during the payment process on the web site. These details may be confirmed in an email to you. Confirmation of acceptance of your order is made on-screen at the end of the order process or subsequently by email. We may have to vary our acceptance of your order at any time up to completion of delivery for a number of reasons at our absolute discretion eg availability of Goods.
Our web site shows images of products for sale. We try to make sure that these images closely reflect the actual products being sold. In most cases eg furniture the images are very accurate, but it is much harder to be consistent with plants which may vary their appearance during the course of the year. Images, descriptions and other information is approximate and for guidance only. We may at our absolute discretion from time to time vary the nature of the Goods from that advertised without notice.
Details of the order The quantity, quality and description of the Goods will be those set out in your order. Orders are accepted at our absolute discretion Any order will be valued by current pricing.. The Goods that are ordered via our Web Site are available for delivery to you if you are based in our Delivery Area.
Price of the Goods The price of Goods shown on the Web Site is an invitation to treat. This means that you make an offer to us to buy the Goods and we are at liberty to accept your offer. Our acceptance of your offer is completed on delivery of the Goods to you. If the price of the Goods changes between the date of your order and the delivery date, we will inform you of any price increases and ask you to confirm by email that you will pay the new price. If it is not acceptable then you will have the option of cancelling the order or we will not be able to complete your order. Charges for packaging, transport, insurance where appropriate and any special services are shown on the order page and will be included in the total price for the Goods.
Payment terms We will seek payment from your credit or debit card when your order is accepted unless delivery cannot be completed within 30 days. At present we can only take payments on our web site and not by telephone. This may change in the future. Goods which are awaiting to be received into stock and are likely to take more than 30 days before being delivered will be charged to you up to 7 days prior to delivery to you. We accept no liability if a delivery is delayed because payment details are incorrectly informed to us.
If full payment for the Goods has not been received from you prior to delivery of the Goods to you, we may cancel the order at our discretion. We will endeavour to inform you by email if this is the case. This does not affect any other rights we may have.
We will take all reasonable care to keep all information connected with your order secure. Under normal circumstances no third party has authorised access to secure information. However, we accept no liability for any loss that you may suffer if a third party obtains unauthorised access to any data.
Delivery We will deliver the Goods to the address you specify for delivery in your order. Please let us know if you have specific delivery requirements or you require the goods to be left with a neighbour or in a certain place if you are not at home. We cannot accept liability for loss or damage to the Goods once they have been delivered in accordance with your delivery instructions.
Delays Occasionally, the delivery of your Goods may be delayed. This can be for various reasons such as supplier shortages, import delays or higher than anticipated demand. We will take every reasonable effort to keep you informed by email.
Risk and ownership Once goods have been delivered to you, risk of damage to or loss of the Goods passes to you. If you do not take delivery at the agreed time then risk of damage or loss of the Goods passes to you at the time when we tried to deliver. Ownership will pass to you once the goods have been successfully delivered to you and we have received full payment.
Substitutes. We reserve the right to replace Goods with something similar. You may rely on flowerland to choose a plant that is comparable in size, price and habit.
Returns Policy. At flowerland we only send you our best plants, many of which have been home grown from seed or cuttings. We have a quality control procedure that ensures that Goods are of the right quality when they leave our nurseries and garden centres. We do our best to package and protect everything so that it doesn't get damaged on its way to you, however sometimes problems occur in transit. If you do have a problem, the quickest, easiest and most secure way to let us know is to send an email detailing your problem to: firstname.lastname@example.org alternatively write to: flowerland.co.uk, Bourne End Garden centre, Hedsor Road, Bourne End, Bucks SL8 5EE.
Please note, we cannot allow goods that have been returned to receive a full refund if they have been used. Unfortunately, some people do not wish to buy Goods but just to use them for a short time and then return them. If we believe this to have happened, we may have to charge a rental fee which we will determine at our absolute discretion.

Goods received appearing to be sub standard. Most products will be delivered and you will receive them in a condition in accordance with the image on the flowerland Web Site. Plants vary in appearance during the course of the year but we are unlikely to change the image during the course of the year. If you receive a plant that you think is sub standard then, contact us immediately on taking it out of its box. We may ask you to send us a photograph or digital image so that there is no doubt as to the plant’s condition on arrival with you. This is because it may change in appearance by the time it has been returned to us. Deciduous plants will loose their leaves at certain times of year and perennial plants may not show any growth above soil level in a pot during the winter. Contacted us within 7 days of receiving a damaged plant we will arrange for a refund or replacement. Please don’t leave it any later as the plant may deteriorate.
Two year guarantee on plants, shrubs, trees and perennials
Our plants (shrubs, trees and perennials) are guaranteed for two years after you receive them. If the plant dies in the first two years, we will replace it or refund you. We are happy to provide this guarantee because if the plants we sell are treated properly there should be no reason why they would die, and we want you to have confidence in making your plant purchases. However, plants that have not been cared for properly are excluded from this guarantee, and we have to exercise our absolute discretion when deciding whether a plant has been properly cared for. Examples of improper care are, without limitation; allowing plants to dry out, over watering, underfeeding, improper location of plants, damage caused by pets, people or objects. If you have a plant that you think has died, make contact with our customer services at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will tell you the process of making a return Please quote your order number in all correspondence. We may ask you to take a digital picture of the plant so that we can understand the problems. Please do not dig up the plant but leave it in its situation when you make your enquiry. You will be charged for delivery on replacement items.
Cancellations. Under the distance selling regulations you have the legal right to cancel your order within seven working days of receipt of the goods (with the exception of fresh cut flowers). Where goods are delivered to a third party (e.g. as a gift delivered directly) you will only be able to exercise this right if you are able to return to us the goods you ordered.
