The Important Stuff
Some Things You Should Know
For your utmost enjoyment we will supply you with top quality and in most cases top size flower bulbs, plants and seeds. All the items in our catalogue have been inspected for quality and are supplied by the best growers in the business. Be sure to read the planting guide that we enclose with every plant order, we’ve spent loads of time gathering the information and it really will help your plants perform better. Bulbs and plants definitely respond better when they are put in the ground right away, remember they are living things and need the natural elements to survive and thrive. We love to ship our products all across Canada - it’s what we do best!
We Guarantee To Wow You!
Our products are top quality and in great condition at the time of shipping. If this is not the case when they arrive at your door, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can take care of you with a replacement, credit or refund. Shipping & handling fees are non-refundable. Please do not throw away any plant items until we’ve had a chance to talk with you, it’s ever so helpful if we can figure out what happened with the product. Let’s be honest, things can happen that are totally unexpected when you’re dealing with live plant products, but our promise to you is that we will treat every case on an individual basis and do our very best to make your Botanus experience a great one.
