Echium World

Any purchase of goods from the website Echiumworld.co.uk and/or direct purchased from Echium World requires the customer to consult and accept these terms and conditions. The click validating the order implies full acceptance of these terms and represents the customer's "digital signature".  


All stock is individually checked before despatch to ensure it is in good condition. If you are not satisfied with the condition of the plants when received please contact Echium World by telephone or email within a week of the delivery date. A clear photograph must be sent as evidence of the complaint. If the plants have been severely damaged in transit please contact us immediately, we will require the customer to send a clear photograph so that we can take up the matter with the courier.

If Echium World accepts the responsibility for plants received in poor condition or damaged in transit a replacement will be supplied as the first option. However, if a replacement is not available a full refund will be made.

If plants fail to survive after the week, as stated, we accept no responsibility for failure which may be due to adverse weather conditions, over-watering, pests and diseases and many other factors which are beyond our control.

Our website and catalogue images and descriptions aim to provide a clear idea of the nature of the plants we sell, though there may be variations in size, or shape between different specimens dependent upon the season, weather and growing conditions at the time.  With that in mind illustrations, descriptions and other information are approximate and for guidance only.  We cannot guarantee the exact shade of the colour of flowers due to cross pollination and our plants are provided with this proviso. All images are subject to copyright.


Plants are made available for pre-order, through the website and will be delivered in the spring and the month stated on the listed item. Full payment including postage and packaging, will be taken at time of ordering. If for reasons outside of our control the plants are not available to supply, a full refund will be issued of the payment total taken and we will send confirmation by email to the customer. However, we will always endeavor to fulfill all orders taken.
