2. Basis of Sale
When the order is accepted through our website an agreement has been made between you and us for the supply of the Goods in accordance with the terms and conditions set out here
The price and description of the Goods are set out on the order page within the website
We try to give you a clear idea of the nature of the plants we are selling. However plants will inevitably vary in size, shape and colours between different specimens. The information, illustrations and descriptions are for guidance only.
Plant sizes are approximate. Plants grow individually and whilst we make every effort to ensure that all plants supplied are at least the minimum of the size range we indicate, occasionally plants are slightly smaller, especially if ordered at the beginning of a growing season. Equally, sometimes plants are taller than indicated, especially if ordered at the end of a growing season.
3. Details of the order
The quality, quantity and description of Goods will be as per those set out in your order
Orders will normally only be accepted at our discretion, if the Goods are available, if you are based in our delivery area and your credit or account card is authorised for the transaction. If after we have received your order, we discover the plants are unavailable we will try to source them but reserve the right to cancel the order.
We will always endeavour to supply the Goods at the agreed price, however, if the price of the Goods increases between the date of the order and the date of despatch, we will inform you and ask you to confirm by email that the new price is acceptable. If not, you will be entitled to cancel the order without charge
Our charges for packaging and delivery are included in the price shown on the website
We will charge your credit or account card upon receipt of your order. 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 can cancel the Contract and delivery.
We will take all reasonable care over the safekeeping of all information provided for your order but cannot be held responsible for any loss that you may suffer if unauthorised access to any data, including your credit card data, occurs when you are accessing or placing an order on our website
Delivery will be made to the address given with your order, please ensure this is accurate and please also be clear as to where you would like the Goods left if you are out when we deliver. We cannot accept any liability for incorrect delivery instructions or damage to the Goods as a result.
If delivery is delayed for reasons beyond our control, we will contact you to agree a new delivery date
7. Risk & Ownership
You become responsible for the Goods at the time they are delivered to you, so any subsequent loss or damage is your own responsibility.
8. Returns & Cancellations
We inspect plants carefully before despatch but accept that very occasionally things may go wrong – perhaps they have been damaged during delivery, or even are the wrong plants. The Goods may be returned if they are not what was ordered but agreement must be secured from Impact Plants Ltd at email@example.com before any return takes place.
Complaints regarding bad condition of plants must be made immediately to firstname.lastname@example.org. We may require a photograph to be sent to us to verify the condition. We will do our utmost to resolve your complaint, and assuming we agree with you that the plants are not of the appropriate quality, and providing you return plants in their original packaging within 10 days of delivery to you we will replace them or refund you in full. The Goods remain your responsibility until we receive them.
If you have not notified us of a problem within 10 days of delivery, you are deemed to have accepted the plants and Impact Plants has no further liability for them if they fail.
You may cancel your order but agreement must be secured from Us beforehand at email@example.com
We will not pay for the cost of delivery back to us for a cancellation
None of our material may be used without our written permission but you may print a copy of pages connected with your order

This contract will be governed by English law and any dispute handled in an English court.
