Returns/Options to cancel

By law, customers within the European Union have the right to a ‘cooling off period’ within 14 days of their purchase being delivered.

If you decide to return an item to Lilies Water Gardens during this period, you will only be entitled to a refund of our range of "non-living"/non-perishable products in their un-opened unused state, the cost of the item and not the return charge.

If you are however returning the items because they are damaged, faulty or in any way defective then Lilies Water Gardens will refund the delivery and return fee on receipt of the goods.  Photo evidence must be provided if plants or dry goods are damaged upon delivery.

We only offer a refund on plants if they are damaged on arrival and the customer alerts us within 24 hours of delivery.  All our plants are dispatched in a clean healthy state, we do not guarantee plants as they are living and prone to airborne pests and diseases, unsuitable soil, location, and weather conditions, all of which are out of our control.

Risk and ownership

Risk of damage to or loss of the Goods passes to you at the time of delivery to you.  You will only own the Goods once they have been successfully delivered.

Warranties

We aim to provide high quality products.  Customer satisfaction is very important to us.  Please tell us, either in writing or by telephone, if you are not happy with any aspect of our service.

Matters out of our control

We will not be liable to you or in breach of the Contract for delay or failure to perform due to a cause beyond our reasonable control.

Privacy

We will not pass on your details to any third party other than to the delivery company for the purpose of delivering your order.

Governing law and jurisdiction

English law will govern these terms and any disputes will be resolved exclusively by the English Courts.
