Orders that have already been put on the picking list cannot be cancelled, as such orders will have already been prepared for despatch.
As Plants and Garden works alongside the nursery and other suppliers as separate entities, there is a logistic and administrative process involved that means cancellation requests may sometimes require extra lead time and we orders cannot be cancelled immediately. In such instances Plants and Garden will fully endeavour to meet the customer's requirements, however in some instances it may sometimes not be possible to successfully do so.
Please accommodate this information whilst submitting your request.
