Terms & Conditions
All prices are shown in Nigerian Naira, US dollars, British Pounds Sterling, and Euro. Lush Gardens delivers to all Port Harcourt residential and business addresses and some parts of Nigeria. Should there be any delivery restrictions, additional charges may apply to your order depending on the distance from dispatch, our management will contact you by phone and if unsuccessful then via email.
Every product dispatched and delivered by Lush Gardens is created by professional florists and Lush Gardens guarantees the quality and freshness of every order received.
Due to the delicate nature of live plants and flowers, we require a minimum of 72 hours' notice for some orders
Every order received by Lush Gardens will be made on the date requested and every effort will be made to meet any requests in regard to preferred times of delivery. However, some orders will require a minimum of 72 hours to process before pick up or delivery.
Lush Gardens guarantees same-day delivery for all orders like potted plants within Port Harcourt if placed before 2 p.m. Monday to Saturday. Orders received outside of these ‘cut-off’ times will be delivered the following business day.
Lush Gardens does NOT do deliveries on Sundays unless stated otherwise by management.
Delivery fees are calculated based on the distance to a location within Port Harcourt.
In order to deliver your order on the delivery date that you have requested during the checkout process, it is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that the recipient’s address and phone number are correct and that there is someone at this address to receive the flowers or that it is safe to leave the flowers at this address if there is no one there to receive.
Please be sure to check the delivery address details thoroughly and provide any special delivery instructions before submitting your order. Lush Gardens is not responsible if an incorrect name, delivery address, and/or phone number is supplied or if there is no one at the address to receive the flowers, or if it is not safe to leave the flowers at the front door. If the order is un-deliverable and therefore returned to Lush Gardens, an additional re-delivery charge of the same value as the original delivery fee will apply.
We suggest that the best delivery address is a business address or somewhere where you know there will be someone to receive the delivery. It is not our policy to have the couriers leave arrangements at the doorstep unless it is at the customer's request and from this point forward do not assume any liability for orders which are instructed to be left and consequently damaged or stolen. If a concierge, security person, or receptionist is obligated to receive the order on the recipient’s behalf, Lush Gardens does not accept responsibility from this point forward.
In the event that the couriers have attempted delivery at the given address and no one is there to receive it, a re-delivery fee will apply for the second and any other subsequent attempts at delivery. The re-delivery fee will be charged at the full amount as per the original delivery fee unless the order is redirected to another address in which case the redelivery fee may vary depending on the suburb. We will notify the customer of any failed delivery attempts and the customer will also be advised of any additional charges that will be made to their credit card for re-delivery fees prior to the charges being debited.
Alternatively, we also offer the customer the option to pick up their flower order from Lush Gardens.

We do not offer flowers for delivery outside of Nigeria. However, there are a few exceptions for interstate deliveries.

VALENTINE’S DAY & MOTHER’S DAY DELIVERIES:
Due to the high volume of orders placed for delivery during these busy periods, we are unable to accommodate time-specific deliveries or requests for preferred times.
At the time of ordering it is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that the recipient’s name, address, phone number, and card message is complete and correct and that there is someone at this address to receive the flowers or that it is safe to leave the flowers at this address if there is no one there to receive them.
If we receive an order that does not have a card message supplied, we will assume that the customer does not want a card message and therefore we will proceed to deliver the order without a message.
Lush Gardens is unable to alter or change any orders placed for delivery on Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day after the pre-order window has been closed.
Pick-up options are available during these busy periods if our delivery times are not favorable.
Flowers and plants are perishable products that are directly affected by the environment they are exposed to; therefore this will affect their longevity. Here are some tips from Lush Gardens that will help you to keep your flowers fresh, lasting longer and looking their best. Please note: A flower food sachet and flower care guide are delivered with every Lush Gardens flower order.
CARING FOR CUT FLOWERS:
• Fill a clean vase with water and add the flower food sachet as per the instructions provided with your flowers.
• Cut approximately 2cm off all the stems (diagonally) with sharp scissors and remove any leaves that will fall below the waterline as they will create bacteria and spoil the water very quickly. Place flowers immediately into the prepared vase.
• Top up the water regularly and change it completely every 2 to 3 days. Trim 2cm off the stems, removing any spent blooms and foliage during this period.
• Place the vase in a cool, draft-free position, away from direct sunlight and fruit, avoiding extreme changes in temperature and do not place the vase on top of heat-generating appliances such as fridges and microwave ovens.
CARING FOR ARRANGEMENTS:
Leave the flowers in the florist’s foam/container that they arrived in.
Check the water level daily and top up with water mixed with the flower food sachet provided.
Cut off any spent blooms and foliage to keep the arrangement looking fresh.
Do not allow the florist foam to dry out.
Place the arrangement in a cool, draft-free position, away from direct sunlight and fruit, avoiding extreme changes in temperature, and do not place it on top of heat-generating appliances such as fridges and microwave ovens
