Quantities ordered and shipped are clearly printed on the slip along with any plants that are back ordered or marked out. A handy page of tips on transplanting perennials is also included with your packing slip.

If you have any questions or concerns about these shipping procedures, please contact your sales representative, broker, or Walters Gardens, Inc. customer care team and we will be happy to assist you.

Unsatisfactory Plants

If you have any concerns about your shipment when it arrives, be sure to note any damages on the shipping documents when you sign. Digital photos of the damages are needed for us to process your claim. Please notify us immediately of any issues so that we may render any possible assistance. After notifying us of any problems with your order, you have up to three months from the date of receipt to file a claim for credit on unsatisfactory plants. Late claims made after three months may be respectfully declined. Exception: Any plants that are not true-to-name once mature will be credited or replaced, regardless of when the claim was filed. Please allow 2-3 weeks for processing your claim.

Replacement Plants

If items being replaced are no longer available, substitutions may be made with items of similar value. You will not be charged freight on replacement orders. If only a small number of plants is being claimed, a credit will be issued instead of replacements.

Shortages, Damages, and Delays

If your product arrives damaged, note the damage on the shipping documents, snap a few digital photos of the damage, and notify us immediately. Also notify us immediately of any shortages or delays on your order so that we may render assistance. We will do our best to correct the problem.

Restocking Charges

If an order is cancelled after it has been prepared for shipment or if an order is shipped and returned, a minimum restocking fee of 15% will be charged including any shipping charges and the cost of any plants that cannot be restocked. You will not be charged for any error on our part. Returns will not be accepted without prior authorization.
