Our plants can only be shipped within New Zealand. All plants are packed carefully and are sent via Aramex (Fastway) Couriers tracked services. Orders are usually sent on a Monday to avoid any delays in the plants reaching you. The aim is to have the plants on their way within two weeks of receiving your order - Freight is calculated according to weight and volume and the further away from the Waikato the more it costs to send.
Please note: Due to our rural location, the courier does not collect from the nursery. Instead I make the 70km round trip usually once a week to take plants to the pick-up location. If for some reason I am unable to get the orders to the courier the week following your order being received then they would be taken the following week, I also have to work around Patrick's follow-up hospital appointments but I would email you to keep you up to date with delivery dates etc.
Small box = up to 4 x 9cm pots or 2 x 1 litre size pots - do not select this option if ordering more than this as they do not fit and you will be invoiced for the correct shipping option.
Medium box = up to 10 x 9cm pots or 6 x 1 litre size pots
Large box = up to 20 x 9cm pots or 12 x 1 litre size pots,
Extra Large order - if making a large order (more than the allotted amounts stated above) then select Extra Large Order for your shipping option and this covers all additional boxes of plants that are required to fulfil your order.
Be sure to select the correct location under "country" in the address field so that shipping is calculated accurately e.g. if you live rural in the South Island then you must select "New Zealand - Rural South Island". If you live locally you can collect your parcel of plants from Villaleigh Plants via an appointment - select "New Zealand pick up" under the country drop down menu in the address field.
Once your order has been shipped you will receive a confirmation of shipping email.
Shipping Prices (including gst): Shipping is calculated once you have entered your shipping details in the checkout process.
