We charge a fee of £4.95 for standard shipping. All delivery prices are inclusive of VAT.
Why do we charge for delivery? Our plants come to us directly from the growers, we carry out thorough quality assurance and pack your plants so that they’re safe and secure throughout the journey to your home. We use couriers to ensure your plant makes it in one piece. The delivery charge, although small, helps us to fairly compensate our quality assurance and packing team, it also helps us purchase boxes, packaging material and of course pay towards courier costs.
Plant boutique will deliver your order within 4-6 working days from the date of purchase. In some circumstances we may be able to process and ship your order sooner, please ask a member of our team via the live chat function.
Our orders will be delivered via UPS/DPD or a local courier of our choosing and we will always use a premium1-2 day delivery service. In most cases you will be able to track your shipment via the tracking code provided however we cannot guarantee the uptime of third-party tracking systems. We do not offer weekend delivery and cannot guarantee that your parcel will be delivered in the time frame provided.

To help ensure the safety of your package we use DPD or UPS couriers.

If you are not home, UPS will attempt to delivery your parcel up to 3 times before leaving the package at a local UPS point where you are able to collect the package at your convenience.
If your parcel has been marked as delivered and you cannot locate it, we recommend that you check all exterior doors and any locations where the package could be placed, including the porch, back patio, garage, and any area out of potential weather hazards. You should also check with anyone who might have retrieved the package, like a neighbour.

Concierge and Safe Space Policy
Please check with your concierge that they are able to accept plants/flowers before recommending this as your safe space.
It is our driver procedure to obtain a signature for any orders left as requested by the customer and therefore Plant Boutique will not take responsibility for lost orders once delivered to your chosen safe place. If you have issues with your delivery we ask that you contact the relevant courier for support.
Some of our products are available on a backorder basis. This means the plants are not currently in stock but can be restocked on order. If you opt to order a plant, product or accessory that is not in stock, you understand that our standard 6-8 day delivery time frame is likely to increase.
At Plant Boutique we want you to be happy with your purchase. Whilst we will do our utmost to deliver a plant that matches as closely as possible the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen. However, it is important to state that plants and flowers are natural, living things and therefore you should expect some variations in both size and shape.
If you’re unhappy with your purchase for any reason, you have 14 days to return it using recorded or tracked delivery of your choice. Any shipping fees for returning your order is at your own cost. Please ensure you contact us before returning any products. Any returned items must be returned in the same condition it was delivered. Any damage caused to the returned items due to poor packaging or accidental damage will be deducted from your refund.
Please note: it is quite common for plants to have small nicks or scars on their leaves, this is particularly true for plants from the Sansevieria family. If you receive a plant that has slight damage to it’s leaves, we would recommend you cut the leaf back in order to encourage new growth. It must also be stated that nicks or scars do not affect the plant’s long-term health or vigour in any way. Some plants like the Jade and Chinese money plant are susceptible to leaf loss, particularly in transit, again this will not affect the plants long term health or vigour in any way.
Once your returned items have been received and processed you will receive an email confirmation. Please allow up to 28 days for refunds.
Note: we can only process refunds if the product has been damaged and you can evidence this (photographic or video) within 24 hours of receiving the product. Refusing the product/package on delivery, without providing proof of damage will mean that we will not be able to provide you with a refund.
