What if my plant is damaged?
Brian’s Botanicals guarantees that the plants are alive and healthy when shipped. Brian’s Botanicals prepares plants to be shipped by putting plants in sleeves or wrapping them in newspaper. Plants are packed in such a way that they should arrive in good condition. There is a risk of damage such as bent or torn leaves and stems when shipping plants in the mail. Plants that have a bent leaf or stem, or a tear in a leaf will not be replaced. Brian’s Botanicals will not be held responsible for plants that are damaged because they were not picked up at the post office. If you order a large plant call your post office and make arrangements to pick it up so that it dose not get shipped back.

This will help us to determine what happened to the shipment and prevent it in the future. We must be contacted with in five days after receiving the damaged plant for a replacement.
