Christmas 2022

If you'd like your parcel before Christmas, from 11 December you'll need to choose Express Post. Please note, we don't offer express on larger pots as we can't ship these via express cost effectively.

How long will it take for my order to arrive?

We pack and ship within 3 business days (often sooner) and then send your parcel via Australia Post or a courier service. Once dispatched, it can take 2-10 days for your parcel to arrive, based on where you're located and whether there are delays in the network.

If you need something faster, please email us on and we may be able to arrange a quote for express shipping.
