If we discover an error in the price of any goods which you have ordered we will inform you of this as soon as possible and cancel your order. We will then update our website with the correct price as soon as possible so the order can be replaced if needed. If you cancel the order and you have already paid for the goods, you will receive a full refund.
The website may contain typographical errors or other errors or inaccuracies and may not be complete or current. We therefore reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions and to change or update information at any time without prior notice. We reserve the right to refuse to fulfil any orders that you may place based on information on the website that may contain errors or inaccuracies, including, without limitation, errors, inaccuracies or out-of-date information regarding pricing, shipping, payment terms, or return policies.
The following terms and conditions relate solely to special offers advertised on our website. All terms are additional to our full terms and conditions set out here. If you do not agree with these or our full terms and conditions you should not proceed with a purchase.
If you have any queries relating to a current or previous offer, please contact our customer service team.
This covers offers such as buy 25 & save 20%, 3 for 2’s, buy 1 & get 1 half price etc.
- Where relevant, discounts will be applied to the lowest price item(s).
- Offers are applied at the checkout automatically.
- Offers are strictly valid for the advertised period.
- Multi-buy offers may be amended at any time without notice. This will generally be based on availability or commercial factors such as international shipping rates.
Fixed price offers
These offers cover regular sale pricing and are fixed amounts per product.
- Amounts are automatically removed from your order total.
- Offers end on the specified date or while stocks last.
- Offers may also be withdrawn if an error has occurred.
These offers cover voucher codes such as those we send out via email.

Returning items bought within offers
Should you choose to return an item purchased as part of a promotion, your order and discount amount will be recalculated based on the remaining order information.
If the order is still above promotional price breaks, we will refund the discounted price of the product.
If the order falls below the promotional price breaks, we will recalculate the discount amount and refund the remaining sum.
For example if you had purchased 12 roses at £5 each and qualified for a 20% off multi-buy promotion, you would have paid £50. However returning 3 roses, would take you below the 20% off break, meaning you would have originally paid £45. Therefore your refund would be £50 - £45 = £5.
All quotations are valid for 30 days from the date of issue. The Company reserves the right to withdraw or amend quotations in the event of error or material change in costs.

We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any goods supplied, if the loss is considered to be the result of unnecessary handling by you.
If the whole order is returned, we will also refund the basic cost of outbound carriage. If the Customer paid for an upgraded service, we will only refund the basic fee.
We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement.
Unless stated otherwise on the product page on the website we warrant our products to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of 12 months from date of purchase.
If the product fails to conform to this warranty we will, at our option, either replace the item or refund the original purchase price.
This will be subject to us being satisfied that the defect has not been caused by misuse, neglect, improper installation, repair, alteration or accident. An example of this would be using a product outdoors that we are not describing on our website as being suitable for outdoor use.
