3 Product descriptions
All Product descriptions and illustrations shown on the Website are provided in good faith but are intended as guidance only and actual Products may vary accordingly.
Colours shown on our products may vary slightly.

Whilst we use reasonable endeavours to keep prices up-to-date on the Website, we reserve the right to alter prices at any time. Any change in price will be communicated to you prior to delivery of the relevant Products.
The Website contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product’s correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you that we are rejecting it.

When you place an order to purchase a Product from us, your order represents an offer to us to purchase that Product, which we may choose to accept or refuse – it does not represent a legally binding contract. Your offer is accepted by us and becomes binding only when we expressly confirm your order in writing either by invoice submitted with Products delivered, e-mail or otherwise.
Whilst we will do our best to fulfil your order (once it is accepted), we cannot guarantee to do so (for example, where we are out of stock, where your card issuer refuses to authorise your payment or where Products have been incorrectly priced on our Website).
5 Payment for the Products
All Products will remain our property until we have received payment in full for those Products.
All card payments are subject to authorisation by your card issuer. If your payment is not authorised, we will cancel your order and notify you in writing (which may include e-mail) that we have done so.
If we cannot supply you with the Products that you have ordered, we will cancel your order and inform you of this as soon as reasonably possible. We will give you a full refund where you have already paid for the Products.
If a Product is ordered using any discount code, only full priced items are eligible for the discount, unless specified in the offer.
6 Delivery of the Products
Unfortunately - due to legal reasons - we are not able to ship live plants outside of Europe, but we are very happy to ship anything else worldwide. Please get in touch if you are from any country that does not fall within Europe, and we will let you know shipping costs and lead-times.
We try to avoid the shipment of live plants on a Friday, or over the weekend - as the plants need light and air. We take care especially not to send plants on a Friday when sending to a commercial address.
Lead times may vary during busy periods.
We understand sometimes you may be in a hurry for your order, if this is the case, please don't hesitate to get in touch and we will endeavour to meet your expectations.
The goods will be delivered to the address provided by the Customer at the point of sale. Any costs which incurred due to incorrect address information, will be passed on to the Customer. Botanic Tribe shall not be liable for delays, or other disadvantages to the Customer, which result from an incorrect address being given.
Depending on what you are ordering, shipping costs in the UK may sometimes vary accordingly. Shipping to Europe & the rest of the world will also vary from any UK prices you have been quoted.
UK Standard Delivery will be made to the address specified in your order. All parcels containing fragile or larger live plants will be sent via DPD Local to United Kingdom addresses, and must be signed for by someone aged 18 or above. For all other deliveries in the United Kingdom, small or medium sized parcels for example, will be sent via First Class Royal Mail. For international deliveries, parcels may be sent by courier or Royal Mail, depending on the weight of the parcel and the location of the delivery. Please get in touch for a quote if you are ordering outside of the UK. There may be an additional cost incurred for shipping outside of the UK.
