Consumption of edible plants is at your own risk

2. Urban Bounty is not liable for any consequences from the consumption of plants purchased or promoted on urbanbounty.co.nz or related social media. Some edible plants need to be prepared in specific ways for them to be fit for human consumption, some components of plants, such as rhubarb leaves, may be toxic and for some people consuming certain plants may cause an allergic or adverse reaction.  While we will endeavour to provide information on the use of edible plants it is your responsibility to do your own research prior to growing, harvesting, preserving, cooking or eating any of the plants you purchase from Urban Bounty.  

How we remedy website mistakes 

3. Urban Bounty will endeavour to ensure all information, including plant sizes, prices or the inventory available, are correct on our website, however mistakes can occur.  This is how we will work with you to resolve issues arising from an error: 

  • If we become aware of an error after you have placed an order we will try to contact you to agree a solution, you may accept the correct price, change your order or cancel your order.  If we cannot agree, we reserve the right to cancel your order and refund your money at any time prior to delivery.   
  • If the error is discovered after delivery we will discuss options with you including refund, partial refund, return and/or replacement.  While we will aim to find a solution that meets your needs, we reserve the right to decide on whether to provide a refund or replacement.

    Where we deliver 

    6. We only deliver to addresses within the North Island of New Zealand including Waiheke Island but not Great Barrier. If you are ordering plants to a rural delivery address you must select the rural delivery option. If you have not selected the rural delivery option and the delivery address is rural, a hold will be put on your account until the rural delivery fee has been paid. 

    What happens if your order arrives damaged or in poor condition? 

    7. If you receive an order that is damaged or not healthy when it arrives please take a photo of the condition the product arrived in on the day of delivery and contact us as soon as possible. If the damage is such that a replacement is required, we will resend the order as soon as possible. 

    What happens if the product delivered doesn’t match the description or is faulty? 

    8. We work with reputable suppliers and will endeavour to make sure the plants you are sent match the description, mistakes do happen though so if you believe the plant you were sent does not match the description let us know and if we agree, we can arrange a refund or replacement.  We understand that with some plants it may take a while for this to become evident. 

    9. If you are sent a non-plant product that you believe does not match the description or it is faulty please contact us as soon as you are aware of this and if we agree, we can discuss options such as repair, replacement or refund. We reserve the right to decide whether to refund or replace a product when repair is not possible or practical. 

    You are responsible for making sure your plants survive and thrive

    10. Plants need to be quickly removed from their packaging, watered and stored in a shade until planted.  To ensure they thrive plants need a position that suits them, well prepared soil, to be planted at a cool time of day (not in full sun) and they need regular watering until they are established.  Urban Bounty will not refund purchases when plants have arrived healthy but have not survived or thrived once planted however contact us if you have problems.  

    Can I change my mind?

    11. Given the sensitive nature of plants no returns will be accepted due to you changing your mind. If you have purchased a non-plant product and have changed your mind please contact us within 7 days of delivery to you. You will be responsible for the cost of returning the product and a refund will only be provided if it is returned undamaged. We cannot guarantee a refund for returns beyond 7 days as some products such as live worms have a limited timeframe.
