Here's the dirt on Shipping Insurance:

There is much that falls out of our control when shipping live plants across the country and mail carriers provide no protection for perishables shipped via standard/ground rates. This insurance protection covers your order for full refund/credit options or a replacement (pending availability) should your plants arrive damaged due to extreme temperatures, shipping delays, and any general damage. No third-party rigmarole, no lengthy claims process.

 

WHEN SHOULD I CONSIDER SEASONAL INSURANCE?:
We encourage any live plant order to include Shipping Insurance to help protect against damage caused by carrier delays, lost packages, extreme temperatures, etc. In the winter, we a heat pack is included with insurance at no additional charge. Our team will assess the current weather conditions in your area prior to shipping and determine whether a heat pack is deemed necessary or not. 

INSURANCE COVERS YOUR ENTIRE ORDER:
Shipping Insurance will cover ALL plants associated with the order. Simply add 1 to your cart and your order is covered!

HOW DOES IT WORK?:
Should you need to submit a claim, we make it headache free. All you have to do is send us an email (support@bwhplantco.com) with a photo of the damage along with your order number WITHIN ONE WEEK OF DELIVERY. Our team will assess the damage and move forward with your claim accordingly. We'll provide you with refund, credit or replacement options (if stock is available). Easy peasy! 

WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON'T GET INSURANCE AND MY PLANTS ARE DAMAGED?:
In short, we will never leave you with a dead or damaged plant... BUT we throw out a lot of warnings when comes to shipping live plants. Should you choose to ignore the warnings of shipping live plants.. you'll likely have some fees associated with replacements. If you forego Shipping Insurance and your plant arrives damaged, replacement and store credit options will still be available but new postage charges &/or additional fees (25% plant replacement charge) may apply.

FREEZING TEMPERATURE DISCLAIMER:
Shipping insurance is intended to cover accidental damage that can occur in transit. Tropical houseplants will not ship well in below-freezing temperatures. If your daily high temperatures are below freezing (32 degrees Fahrenheit), BWH Plant Co does not recommend purchasing live plants and is not responsible for cold damage that may occur. Shipping Insurance will not cover your order from damage when intentionally ordering while experiencing below-freezing temperatures. During the winter season, shipping insurance includes a heat pack but these items are not intended to withstand extreme temperatures below freezing. If these warnings are disregarded and your plant arrives damaged, refunds and replacement will not be issued. BWH ships plants year-round, nationwide! If temperatures are too cold this time of year, consider waiting until warmer weather to ensure happy, healthy plants.

Can I return or exchange my online order?

Please be aware, all sales are final once shipped. BWH Plant Co. does not accept returns on any plant purchases.

When will I receive my plants?

Online orders are processed within 3-5 business days. Transit time varies based on shipping method selected at checkout. Typical turnaround time from ordering to delivery at your door is about 2 weeks.

What should I do if my order arrived damaged?

If your plant arrives damaged or in poor condition, please contact us within 48 hours of delivery support@bwhplantco.com. Customer must be able to provide proof of the issue at hand (either through photo or video) so our team is able to assess and quickly handle any problems that may arise. We ask that customers do not make changes or alterations to the plant prior to contacting our support team. Failure to contact us within the 48-hour window, provide proof of the issue or alter the plant may void refund/replacement opportunity.

Is there a guarantee on plants?

Because these are live plants, we do not offer lifetime guarantee as proper care falls on the purchaser once the plant is out of our care. However, should your plant arrive damaged or in poor condition please connect with our support team upon arrival so we can make it right!

What can I expect when receiving a BWH package?

Your plants are carefully wrapped and packed to prevent soil and plants from shifting while in transit. We use biodegradable packing peanuts in our shipments, these can be composted or dissolve in water dispose of them. All plants, unless stated in the description, will arrive in their grow pot.

To keep soil moist and in place, we pack a small layer of sphagnum moss on top of the dirt. Once you’ve received your plant, we recommend removing the sphagnum moss.

To best acclimate your plant to its new environment we recommend leaving it in its grow for 2 weeks before repotting.

Weekly Restock

When does the website restock?

Our website restocks with new inventory every Sunday at 6 PM EST. Please note, inventory varies weekly based on availability. You may see an item one week that might not be in stock again.

When will you have ______ plant in stock?

Because inventory changes weekly we are not able to give timelines on when specific items will become available. The best way to keep up with what’s launching on the current restock is subscribe to our email list or to tune into our Instagram story “sneak peek”. The sneak peek is posted every Wednesday afternoon PRIOR to the restock so that customers are aware of any limited/must have items.

Will my items save in my cart while browsing?

Our website does not have the functionality to hold items in the cart while browsing. Many items on our website do sellout quickly. If you're on the hunt for something specific we recommend purchasing.

Can I preorder any items?

Due to high demand of items, we unfortunately cannot offer preorders or waitlists at this time. To keep things as fair as possible all items on the website are first come first serve.

Processing & Shipping

Can I ship to a PO Box?

If your order is being shipped with UPS be advised that PO Boxes do not accept packages from private shipping companies such as UPS. Should you ship your order to a PO Box and the item is returned to sender be advised that new postage charges and replacement fees may apply if a new package must be shipped. It is recommended that live plants are shipped to an address that you reside at to avoid plants sitting in the box for extended times after transit.

How long will it take to ship my order?

Our current fulfillment timeline is approximately 3-5 businesses days. Note that fulfillment timeline is separate from time in transit, the time in transit varies based on location and which shipping option is selected at check out.

Shipping during summer & winter temperatures

During summer & winter months we offer a shipping insurance add on which to protect your live plant purchase (excluding auction items) from temperature related damage. If you are concerned about shipping issues due to extreme hot or cold weather, make sure to select "Shipping Insurance" add on at checkout.

PLEASE BE ADVISED:

Bring your packages inside immediately when experiencing extreme hot or cold weather. We cannot guarantee the health of the plants if left outside for extended period of time.

In winter we recommend added insurance if daily low temperatures are below 50 degrees. Additionally, if you’re experiencing negative temperatures, we suggest selecting EXPRESS shipping or holding off on your purchase until it warms up. At the end of the day these are live tropical plants that don’t love icy weather and heat packs only help so much.

During summer we recommend added insurance if daily high temperatures are above 90 degrees. Additionally, if you’re experiencing above 100 degrees, we suggest selecting EXPRESS shipping or holding off on your purchase until it cools down to avoid damage.

IT IS NOT ADVISED TO SHIP LIVE TROPICAL PLANTS IN BELOW FREEZING OR ABOVE 100 DEGREE TEMPERATURES. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS ABOUT THE TEMPERATURE IN YOUR AREA, PLEASE CONTACT CUSTOMER SERVICE FOR ASSISTANCE. 

What do I do if my order is returned to sender?

If your package is returned to sender and needs to be shipped again, BWH Plant Co. will not be liable for additional shipping or replacement item cost. New postage cost will be the customers responsibility. Because these are live plants often times, they will need to be replaced before being shipped again due to declining health after extended transit time. If plants are returned to us and are not in good condition to be shipped back out due to extended transit a 25% replacement fee will be added to the additional postage cost. Our team will do it’s best to replace items, but we cannot guarantee items will always be available for replacement as our inventory changes weekly. Refund options will also be available in the form of shop credit (the 25% replacement fee will still apply).

Rare & Auctioned items will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

 If you have just placed your order and notice an error in the shipping address, please contact support@bwhplantco.com immediately.

Can I combine separate orders and have shipping cost refunded?

Our team is very small and cannot guarantee requests to combine separate orders. We will do our best to accommodate this type of request, but it is not guaranteed. If an order must be changed for any reason, it can only be requested within 24 hours of placing an order. Changes cannot be made outside of the 24-hour window due to our fulfillment timelines.

I've shipped my order to the wrong address

If you have accidentally shipped your package to the wrong address and the package has already shipped, BWH Plant Co. is not liable for additional shipping or replacement item cost.

Additionally, you can update your address by logging into your UPS My Choice account and requesting an address change.

Bros with Hoes Plant Co

Hi Gwen! Our team assesses the weather before each order is shipped out to decide whether a heat pack is needed or not, but the insurance will still fully cover your order if there's any damage. If you have any issues with your plant, don't hesitate to reach out to our customer service team at support@bwhplantco.com. Thank you!

Necessary purchase

Definitely get the heat pack if you’re shopping through cold weather. One of my plants got cold shock and died because I didn’t purchase the heat pack. Luckily BWH were generous enough to replace it for me.
