We can guarantee that the plants leave our nursery disease free, but weather and local conditions might affect their survival. Make sure you always make an informed purchasing decision.
The plants that leave our nursery are in the best condition, free of disease. Kept in adequate conditions (positioning and care), the plants are guaranteed for 3 months if they are planted in the ground or one year if they are kept in their original pots. Return policy applies only to plants that are in their original pots.
Due to the nature of the consignments, the courier's drivers are not insured to carry goods through your property. The standard delivery location is the border of your property or the entrance of a communal space. If other arrangements need to be made, please get in touch with us as soon as the order is placed.
Vouchers and small boxes can be posted through the letterbox, provided there is unrestricted access to it.
With items such as ferns, juvenile tree ferns and herbaceous plants it is difficult to give the exact size of each species when such a wide range of plants are grown so we specify standard pot sizes to give an indication of the size and/or age of the plant you are buying.
Sometimes the pot size might vary slightly from the standard or we might listed as 2-3 litre pot, depending on the growers we purchased them from. However, the sizes of the plants are similar in height and spread.
Sometimes the plants might be photographed in decorative pots. However, please bear in mind that our plants are kept in plastic nursery pots.
For the outdoor plants, that are meant to be planted in the ground, the height of the pot is excluded from the measurement. The height is measured from the top of the pot to the tallest leaf or branch of the plant.
All plants are measured when brought to our nursery, however, due to natural factors, the actual size of the plant might change over time due to adjustments to the environment. When picking multiple plants for an order, we aim to pick matching plants.

Plant arrived yesterday.<br /> Large and sturdy looking. Condition appeared to be very good. Well packaged.<br /> I have high hopes for it when planted.
Bought the 20Ltr pot size and received a healthy, well packaged, great looking plant with some seriously big leaves and an impressive flower to boot. It made an instant impact in the garden - just what I wanted.
Bought this plant and was impressed with the size of it for the money. It was in perfect condition and was delivered quickly and the packaging was extremely substantial.
I bought two Gunnera manicata - one 3L and one 10L. They were delivered very quickly, and were very well wrapped and protected. The roots filled both the pots and the plants looked very healthy. I would highly recommend and will definitely buy from The Palm Centre again.
I love this beautiful green plant. cant wait to watch it grow to full potential.
A fantastic easy website to use backed up by excellent efficient service, healthy plant arrived very quickly. Will definitely be using you again. Thank you Palm Centre
Gunnera delivered exactly as requested (time place and fully informed all the way). Well packaged. Both in 7.5 litre pots (7.5-10 litres stated) and roots filled the pots. Healthy and happy in their new home. Will order again.
The Gunnera arrived yesterday in excellent packaging and a much larger plant than we expected. What good value. It is already settled in the marshy area of the pond. We hope to shop with you again and will recommend.
Plants were well packaged, a good size and really healthy looking. Very impressed and would highly recommend
I was disappointed with the plant as it was to come in 10-15litre pot which it did but the plant did not fill it. I contacted customer service through email but no reply. I received a free plant which was lovely but I would have preferred value for money on the plant I ordered. Delivery was quick and correspondence was good up to delivery.
As other review, arrived safely and on time. I have purchased 4 and they all look to be in good condition one with new shoots already and of a good size. Cant wait to plant out.
Well packaged and arrived when stated. Plant is in a very good condition and looks like it is beginning to show new growth already. Can't wait to get it in the ground in it's new home.
