Directions for use

Wet Mixing (Recommended): Mix one teaspoon (5g) into 750ml water.  Leave for an hour before mixing into 5L of potting mix.  Increase to two teaspoons per 5L for hanging baskets and other water stress prone plants.

Plants already potted or inground - Poke vertical holes into potting mix or drip line and place a small amount of into the base of each hole.  Water in thoroughly, then top with potting mix.

Sowing seed: Mix 10g per m2 into top 50mm of topsoil, sow seed and water in thoroughly.  Laying turf - evenly spread crystals at 10g per m2, lay turf then water.

Dry Mixing: Mix one teaspoon (5g) of crystals with 5L of potting mix.  Pot up plant and water in thoroughly.  For best results, water two hours later to ensure crystals are fully charged. 

It is safest to use the crystals wet instead of dry as the crystals take up substantially more volume once wet.

What are your delivery times?

We currently offer delivery within the Perth Metro area via our in-house fleet of vehicles. Our deliveries are completed Monday to Friday between 8:00am - 6:00pm. 

Whilst we're not always able to guarantee a specific delivery window, you're welcome to request a day in your order notes and we will always do our best to accomodate your request. 

For smaller items that are able to be delivered by courier, typically these items are delivered during standard business hours. 

Our deliveries are contactless, and by choosing local Perth Metro delivery there is an assumed 'authority to leave', provided we are able to find a safe location to leave your goods.

Please note that all deliveries are curbside only. 

We deliver your order to your front door. Unfortunately we are unable to deliver items into your house or garden without prior arrangement. If you do have a specific delivery need, please contact us prior to purchase and we'll be happy to help. 

Delivery notes are always helpful - you can add these to your order at checkout. It is particularly important to note if there are any stairs, obstructions or impediments for us to be able to leave your delivery in a safe location. 

Upon delivery, we'll take a photograph of the location where we have safely delivered your goods. 

If we're unable to find a safe and suitable location to leave your goods, we'll attempt to contact you for further instructions. In extreme circumstances, we may need to charge a re-delivery fee if we're unable to deliver your order. 

Following delivery per the above guidelines, we are unable to accept any responsibility for damage or theft following delivery. 

  

Can items be sent outside of the Perth Metro area or interstate?

Shipping is available Australia-wide on some items - most accessories, small pottery and some our soils, fertilisers and chemicals. Please send us a message for shipping costs. 

For larger pottery, please contact us prior to purchase and we can arrange a quote for you from a range of couriers, depending on the product.

Please note that we are currently unable to send any plants via courier within Western Australia, however we're working on this! Plants are therefore only available for Perth Metro delivery or click and collect.

Due to quarantine requirements, we are unable to send any plants, some chemicals and soil microbes etc outside of Western Australia. 

We offer click and collect from our Melville, Kingsley and Stirling stores. Simply select "Click and Collect" and your desired store at checkout. 

Typically orders are ready for collection within 2-4 business days.

We are always looking to decrease this time, so you may receive a notification sooner if all of your items are in stock at that store. However, our stock moves very quickly, so sometimes we need to do a little shuffling to get your order ready for you. 

You will receive when your order is ready for collection - please wait for this email before popping in to collect your order. 

For some larger feature plants and pottery, we may need a few extra days to source these items, however we'll note in the product description where this is the case. 

Unless another arrangement has been made, all click and collect orders must be collected within 5 days of being ready. If this isn't possible, please get in touch.
