Returns and Refunds

At Botanista our goal is to make sure you are delighted with your order and the service you have received both in store and online. In most cases, if your online order arrives damaged, we will replace or refund.

Online Orders

If your order arrives damaged, you must email us immediately and return your order within 3 days of receipt. In your email please include your name and order number (provided on your invoice) as well as a photo of the damage for us to assess. Please do not dispose of your plant or products. We are unable to replace or refund if the original plant is unable to be assessed.

You must return damaged goods within 3 days of receipt. We will then arrange for a swift replacement or refund. Postage costs for returns are at your expense but will be reimbursed with your refund.

Perishable (plant-based and food) products are not able to be returned or refunded due to change of mind.

Wrong address – we copy and paste the address you provide us for your order. We cannot be held responsible for addresses that are provided to us that are incorrect. Should this occur we will assist your communication with the courier where we can, however correcting this mistake and contacting the courier is the responsibility of the sender. Your tracking information includes a courier contact number and the consignment note associated with your delivery.

Delivery to Regional Areas

In regional areas where door to door courier service is not available, Botanista cannot be held responsible for orders containing live plants that are delivered to the local collection point and are not collected by the recipient within 3 days of delivery.

More information on delivery guidelines can be found here.

In Store Returns and Refunds

Products containing live plants, such as terrariums, may be returned for refund or exchange within 3 days of purchase if returned in their original state.

If your terrarium loses a plant or two within 7 days of purchase we will happily replace those plants free of charge. Simply contact us and bring your terrarium in for service. This guarantee does not cover plants and terrariums that have not been provided with appropriate care. As an example, we will not replace plants that have died as a result of a terrarium being left in a hot car.
