Most orders will leave the next working day. There are some exceptions to this, occasionally plants will need to stand for up to two days if they have been watered recently and cuttings may be delayed for a similar period of time if it is not an optimal time to take the cutting due to watering routines. We strive to only deliver the best quality products.

We do not ship on weekends or the eve of public holidays where packages may sit in the post office for extended periods of time.
