Goods, Pricing and Availability

We try to give the best representation of the goods we sell, however please note that all graphical representations (including photographs) and descriptions of goods available from us are intended as a guide only.

Pictures of fresh food or live goods (plants) may be provided to give an appreciation of characteristics. The goods you receive may look different.

Plant sizes are approximate and are provided for indicative purposes only. It is inevitable that variations in size, shape and colour will occur between different specimens and whilst we make every effort to ensure that all plants supplied are at the size range indicated, occasionally plants may be under or over the size selected.

All pricing information on the website is correct at the time of going online. We reserve the right to change prices and alter or remove any special offers from time to time and as necessary.
If prices increase between the date of your order and the date of dispatch, we reserve the right to email you to ask if you wish to proceed. If not, you will be entitled to cancel the order without charge.

If you are viewing the Website from the UK, the product prices advertised on the Website are inclusive of the VAT on the relevant item. Delivery costs are not included in the prices and will be charged in addition. The delivery costs (which will include VAT charged by us) will vary depending on the products that you have ordered and your delivery address. Please see the “Shipping Information” section below for further details. The delivery costs applicable to your order will be clearly displayed at checkout before you place your order (and are included in the “Total Cost” amount shown on the order summary page).

We neither represent nor warrant that goods will be available. Given the nature of our business, availability of products may vary according to seasonal and market factors. If after having received your order we are unable to source goods we reserve the right to cancel the order.

Payment

When you submit your order, we carry out a standard check on your payment card, and products will not be dispatched until the details you have provided are verified. We accept no liability if delivery of the goods is delayed by the supply of incorrect payment details. If we cannot gain full payment for the goods when the order is placed, we reserve the right to cancel the contract and delivery.

Once we have verified your payment details and accepted and approved your order for delivery, we will email you to inform you of this. In the unlikely event that we encounter a problem when processing your order, we will contact you and may possibly request further information to try and resolve the issue.

We reserve the right not to accept your order if, for example, the product ordered is out of stock, has been withdrawn or is otherwise not available, is incorrectly priced, or if we are unable to obtain authorisation for your payment or if you do not meet the eligibility criteria.

Delivery

Gift Cards (and potentially any small, light items) will be delivered by Royal Mail first class post.

Other items, where delivery is offered, will be delivered by our own vans locally or by national courier.

The estimated delivery time is 3-5 working days although we will always attempt to beat this.

There may be circumstances where delivery is delayed because of events beyond our reasonable control. If this happens, we will try and arrange for your products to be delivered as soon as possible, but we will not be liable to you for any losses caused as a result of such delay.
Delivery times may vary depending on the availability of the products and your delivery address. Delivery times, are estimates only and cannot be guaranteed.

If no one is available at your address to sign for your order, our delivery partner will leave you a note and you will need to contact them to rearrange delivery.

Delivery shall be deemed to occur at the time when the goods first arrive at the delivery address provided to us by you. The goods shall remain our property until you have paid for them in full or we have delivered the goods to you (whichever occurs later).

Risk of damage to or loss of the goods will be your responsibility from the time we deliver, or first attempt to deliver, the goods to the delivery address you provided whether or not a signature of receipt has been obtained.

Collection – “Click & Collect”

Covid-19: we have set-up collection that allows a non-contact service where we will bring your order to the back of your car when you arrive in your collection time slot and park in the “Click & Collect” car parking bays.

Our Click & Collect service allows you to select a date and time for collection of your order. We will inform you prior to the collection time if there are any issues.

We cannot be held responsible for any delays or issues at collection if you do not arrive within your timed collection slot

Garden Centre Goods

If you fail to collect your order, we will attempt to contact you and keep it for 5 days. If you have not contacted us nor collected it in that time, we will return the goods to the centre and refund you. Please contact the garden centre by telephone or email us on online@millbrookgc.co.uk.

Fresh Food and Perishable Items

If you fail to collect your order of fresh food (e.g. Afternoon Tea or a Fresh Cake), we will attempt to contact you and keep it for the rest of that day. If you have not contacted us nor collected it in that time, we will be unable to refund you as the food will have to be thrown away. Please contact the garden centre by telephone or email us on online@millbrookgc.co.uk.

Cancellations, Returns & Refunds

We check everything carefully before it leaves us and we also take care with packaging to ensure that your order arrives in perfect condition. However, if you do have a problem, here is what to do:

Contact Us:

Please contact us immediately either by email online@millbrookgc.co.uk. Please have your order number ready.

Incorrect Products:

If we sent you something you hadn’t ordered, please contact us immediately informing us of the problem. Please have your order number ready.

When we have agreed that there is a problem, you can return your goods. For most products, you can return it within 28 days. If it is fresh food (e.g. Afternoon Tea or Fresh Cake) please provide photographs and a description of the issue, if it is a plant it must be returned within 7 days.

Please make sure you enclose your order number and return the item in its original packaging.
We will then send a replacement (if available within 7 days) or refund the cost of the goods where a replacement is not possible.

We will refund the cost of returning incorrect goods only if you have followed the above procedure.

Fresh Food and Plants are ‘Perishable Goods’ and your rights as a Consumer do not fully apply, hence the 7-day period for return of plants.

Damaged or Defective Goods:

If you receive an item that is in poor condition when you take it out of the box, please contact us immediately. Please have your order number ready.

We will ask you to send us a photograph so that there is no doubt as to its condition on arrival with you and to help us determine the cause of the problem.

Fresh Food and Plants cannot be returned purely on the basis that the appearance does not exactly match a particular illustration and description. There are always slight variations in size, shape and colour between different items and illustrations and descriptions are approximate and for guidance only (see Terms and Conditions).

When we have agreed that there is a problem you can return your item within 7 days for a refund or with Fresh Food we may request you do not return it. No credits will be issued.

Please make sure you enclose your order number and return the item in its original packaging.
We will refund the cost of returning damaged or defective plants only if you have followed the above procedure.

Fresh Food and Plants are ‘Perishable Goods’ and your rights as a Consumer do not fully apply, hence the 7-day period for return of plants.

Change of Mind:

If you have changed your mind after receiving your order you can return goods within 28 days at your cost for a refund (plants must be returned within a 7-day period). Unfortunately, we cannot accept the return of Fresh Food for this reason, since the items will have been specially made to order. Please re-pack your items in the original packaging, ensuring that any plants are suitably protected and enclose your order number.

We will refund the cost of the items provided that they are in no worse condition on their return as when they were dispatched to you.

We are not able to refund any shipping costs where you have changed your mind.

Fresh Food and Plants are ‘Perishable Goods’ and your rights as a Consumer do not fully apply, hence the 7-day period for return of plants.
