We do ship internationally apart from any living plant products (including seeds). This is following new restrictions put in place since Brexit for exporting planting products from the UK. We still export all accessories including pots, tools and books.
There are considerable additional costs to exporting plant products which would be acceptable for larger orders. Please contact us for more information.
VAT, customs and import duties are charged once the parcel reaches its destination country. These charges must be paid by the recipient of the parcel.
Unfortunately, we have no control over these charges, and cannot tell you what the cost might be, as customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to country. It might be a good idea to contact your local customs office for current charges before you order, so you are not surprised by charges you were not expecting.
The customer must take full liability for any parcels returned to us due to unpaid customs charges. Postal charges, return shipment costs, customs charges and handling fees will all be deductible from any refund due.
Our gift wrap service is currently only available for starter kits, and any other items in the order will be packed separately. If you would like everything individually wrapped, please contact our customer support after you have received order confirmation.
