Under the existing regulations in the European Union, you have the legal right to cancel your order within 7 days of receipt of your goods, except for plants. You do not need to give us any reason for cancelling your order nor will you have to pay any penalty. However, you will need to notify us by e-mail.

If you have received the goods before you cancel your order, then you must send the goods safely packed back to our contact address at your own cost and risk.

If you cancel your order but we have already processed the goods for delivery, or they are on the way already, you must not unpack the goods when you receive them and send them back to us in the original packaging at our contact address at your own cost and risk and as soon as possible.  Once you have notified us of your cancellation and we have received the goods back in their original condition we will credit you through the original credit card used at the time of purchase within 5 days of receiving the returned goods in the same condition as they were shipped by us.

If you cancel your order but do not return the goods to us as described above, we will not refund any amount.

If you cancel your order and return the goods without paying the cost for the return, we will deduct any amount we have to pay to the postal services or the courier company from the amount to be refunded.

7.3.2 Cancellation by us.

We reserve the right to cancel an order received (1) if we have insufficient stock to deliver the goods ordered and we do not foresee to be able to refill our stock in a reasonable time, (2) if we cannot deliver to your area or (3) if one or more of the goods you ordered was/were listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error or an error in the pricing information received by us from the supplier.

If we do cancel your order, we will notify you by e-mail and we will immediately refund you the amount you paid, on your same card as the one used for the original payment.

7.4 Undelivered or lost.

If a parcel would remain undelivered (due to wrong address, not picked up by the buyer, etc.) and be returned to us by the postal services or the courier company we will contact you by e-mail to see how to proceed. If we must resend the parcel, we reserve the right to charge additional postage.
