Free Delivery Policy

When you shop with The Plant Hub you will receive free delivery with every full box of plants.

How does this work?

As you add plants to your shopping cart our system will automatically calculate what space is remaining in the box and will assist you with recommendations to help you achieve free delivery. But don't worry, if you only require one or two items and can't fill your box the system will calculate the most economical freight based on your post code.

How many plants does it take to fill a box?

A full box can contain any one of the following combinations of products
12 X 140mm Pots, or
4 X Viro-tube 10 Packs, or
8 X 140mm Pots and 2 X Viro-tube 10 Packs

For lawn plugs the combinations include - from 1 up to 6 X Lawn Plugs 49 Packs or 2 and up to 12 X Lawn Plug 21 Packs or a mixed combination of 49 Packs and 21 Packs.

Bulky Items

Delivery for bulky items such as tree guards and hand tools will be priced by postcode. These items do not qualify for the free delivery on full boxes of plants policy. Please note that delivery for items such as tree guards and hand tools will be priced by postcode

Where do you deliver to?

The Plant Hub Delivery Area
At this point in time we only ship plants to N.S.W., A.C.T., Victoria and Queensland, as quarantine is an important issue with the movement of plants across state borders. In the future we hope to be able to ship plants to all states in Australia. Due to quarantine restrictions we cannot ship plants outside of Australia.

How are plants shipped?

This is a very good question. Live plants require express freight, unlike other products which may take a week or so to be delivered using non-express freight services. The Plant Hub use Fastway Couriers and Australia Post to ship your order. Our first preference will always be Fastway Couriers whenever possible, unfortunately Fastway don’t always deliver to regional areas, in which case we will ship your plants with Australia Post. When your plants are dispatched we will send you an email to let you know how they have been shipped, you will also receive a ‘Track and Trace’ label number and a link to the relevant website so you can track the progress of your delivery.

How soon after ordering will I receive my order?

If you have ordered live plants we naturally want to ensure that they arrive to you in the best possible condition. All live plant orders will be dispatched on a Monday and Tuesday to most locations and Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to selected metropolitan areas in NSW and SE Queensland, (except public holidays). Plants normally arrive during business hours within 2 to 3 days for metropolitan areas. Deliveries to regional areas may take an extra day or so to arrive. If you have ordered plants and have been notified that your order has been dispatch, but it has not arrived by Thursday afternoon please contact our office immediately so we can track down your order for you.

I have a PO Box - is that a problem?

As our preferred method of delivery is with Fastway Couriers a street address is essential for this method of delivery. If you would like your order to go to a PO Box we will happily send your order with Australia Post; we do however ask that you pick-up your plants the day they arrive at the Post Office so you receive your plants in the best condition possible.

What if I'm not happy when I receive my delivery?

The Plant Hub is committed to supplying quality plants and products. However, if you are dissatisfied in any way, simply return your purchase and we will either replace the plants or product, or refund your money, no questions asked.

What if an item is out of stock?

The Plant Hub grows all of our plants in our own production nursery. We aim to always have plants available in the Lawn Plugs, the Viro-tube 10 pack and/or 140mm pots. At times however we do run out of stock due to higher then excepted demand or at times there are seasonal issues out of our control which affect when plants will be ready for sale. If you find that an item is currently out of stock you can click the ‘Enquire about lead times’ button to send us an email asking when we will have them back in stock. Because we grow our own plants we should be able to give you an estimate of when they will be ready.
