FREE DELIVERY on orders over $100!

How

Plants are secured in an open box. If you are not home at time of delivery, our driver will leave your order in a suitable location that is sheltered from both the sun and the rain to ensure the well being of the plants.

You are welcome to provide delivery instructions during checkout if you wish; we will make every effort to follow them. Please ensure that there is suitable access for the driver on the day of delivery.

When I receive my order...

Even though your plants arrive in an open box and have access to light and air, we recommend that you take them out the box as soon as possible and water them thoroughly. This is to combat any heat stress they may have from being in transit, especially in the summer months.

Each plant will have a sticker on them mentioning their botanical name, height, habit and the best sun position for optimal growth.

Sent via Australia Post. We will provide you with a tracking number so you can be kept apprised of the delivery process.

Each plant is individually wrapped and packaged into an enclosed box. Soil is secured and the foliage is protected:

Plant packaging

When I receive my order...

Succulents are pretty tough, they are happy to go without water and sunlight for a couple of days. We do recommend that you unpack the plants as soon as possible after delivery.

After you have unpacked them, be sure to water them thoroughly and place them in a part shade position for a day or two. Under a patio or veranda is perfect. This will help them adjust to their new light conditions, and won’t shock them by going from darkness to full sun. Each plant will have a sticker on them mentioning their botanical name, height, habit and the best sun position for optimal growth.

The last day for posting orders with plants before Christmas will be Monday 14th Dec. Please ensure your order is placed before 7am on that day to be included. Posting will resume on Monday 4th Jan 2021.

Christmas Deliveries - COUNTRY WESTERN AUSTRALIA

The last day for posting orders with plants before Christmas will be Monday 7th Dec. Please ensure your order is placed before 7am on that day to be included. Posting will resume on Monday 4th Jan 2021.

Why not send plants interstate?

We are unable to post plants and/or plant material to locations outside of Western Australia due to quarantine restrictions. This unfortunately includes sphagnum moss blocks.

Quarantine restrictions exist to preserve the sanctity of our natural environments. They are a very important matter to us here at Fickle Prickles. More information about quarantine restrictions can be found at the Department of Agriculture and Food's website: agric.wa.gov.au .

Once you have entered your shipping address during checkout, the system will let you know if there are any products that cannot be sent to your location.
