To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging.

Some types of goods are exempt from being returned. These include: 

Non-returnable items:

  • Gift cards
  • Bonsai soil and substrates

To complete your return, we require a receipt or proof of purchase.

Please do not send your purchase back to the manufacturer.

There are certain situations where only partial refunds are granted (if applicable)

  • Books with obvious signs of use
  • Any item not in its original condition, is damaged or missing parts for reasons not due to our error
  • Any item that is returned more than 15 days after delivery

Once your return is received and reviewed, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. If your return is approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment.

Sale items (if applicable)
Only regular priced items may be refunded, unfortunately sale or clearance items cannot be refunded.

Exchanges (if applicable)
We only replace items if they are defective or damaged. If you need to exchange a purchase for the same item, send us an email and we will provide further instructions.

You will be responsible for paying for your own shipping costs for returning your item. Shipping costs are non-refundable. 

Please ensure products are packed safely to prevent any damage. We suggest that if you can hear the item moving around in the box when you give it a light shake then it should be repacked.

Depending on where you live, the time it may take for your exchanged product to reach you, may vary. We will provide return tracking information when the new item is shipped.

If you are shipping an item over $50, or of any significant value to you, please consider using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance. We don’t guarantee that we will receive your returned item.
