Payments

All payments will be charged to the customer's credit card in New Zealand dollars, the name that will appear on the credit card statement is Tucker's Orchid Nursery

Delivery Times

All efforts will be made to dispatch your order within 2 business days of confirmation of payment subject to the following restrictions. Unless requested otherwise we will dispatch orders between Monday and Thursday for North Island deliveries and Monday and Tuesday for South Island deliveries. This is so that the plants are delivered before the end of the week and are not held up over the weekend. Delivery times for North Island destinations is the day following dispatch, for South Island destinations it is 2-3 days from dispatch. Allow an extra day for rural delivery or for areas not currently covered by Fastway franchises.

Returns Policy

  • We make every effort to ensure that the plants will travel in the safest manner and that they arrive to you in top condition. If you suspect that the plant(s) have been damaged in transit, please check the contents of the package before signing for them. Fastway will advise us of the situation and return the product to us. We do appreciate hearing from you as well. We will replace your order without question and with no further charges.
  • We take pride in our plants and select strong healthy plants to send to you. Unfortunately, sometimes plants are stricken with poor health without showing any signs at selection time. If your plant dies quickly (within 3 weeks) after you’ve received it, please email us a photo of the stricken plant and we will send you a replacement at no charge. To qualify, the plant must have been kept in conditions appropriate to its care for the duration. 

Supply/Substitution Policy

  • Whilst we endeavour to keep our website as up to date as possible we will periodically run out of stock of a particular item. We will substitute any out of stock item with something with very similar characteristics.

 

Export/Pricing Policy

This website has been design with the majority of our customers being resident in New Zealand in mind. We are happy to export our plants overseas subject to certain criteria:

  • It is your responsibility to find out from your appropriate government office, what the requirements are regarding the importation of plants into your country.
  • It is our responsibility to comply with any and all requirements as set out by the import permit. These requirements nearly always incur additional charges and we will consult with you first before proceeding to ensure that the overall cost is acceptable to you.
  • We will only export flasks and plants that are Size B+ or larger. Through our experience, young plants that are less than 6 months out of flask (Size B) do not have enough vigour to survive the rigours of shipping overseas.
  • Our international prices are as per those you see on our website, however, the currency changes depending on where we are delivering to. For deliveries to Australia we will charge you Australian dollars and for deliveries to any other country (not New Zealand or Australia) we will charge you US dollars. If paying by credit card the final cost will be calculated into NZ dollars using that day’s exchange rate.
