One year nursery stock guarantee. It is normal for plants to experience some stress for a period of up to 1 year after planting. Signs of stress can be wilting, limited new growth, small leaves or loss of colour. Our nursery stock will grow if properly handled, planted and good “after care” is provided (watering fertilizing, etc.) Failure to provide adequate care will render your guarantee null and void. You can call or visit us should you have any type of problem with your plants. If it is more convenient, you can also email digital photos to SS Greenhouses and we will diagnose the problem for you.
- Should a plant die while guaranteed we will replace the plant ONCE with a credit note. (NO CASH REFUNDS). To make claim under our guarantee, simply bring the plant and your receipt to our greenhouse. For plants that are too large to bring in, please contact us to make other arrangements. Plants purchased with a credit note will receive no warranty.
- The loss of one stem on a clump plant and/or winter dieback does not qualify a plant for replacement under our guarantee.
