Ordering & Payment

For orders under $150, full payment is required with the order. For orders over $150 made before March, a minimum deposit of $150 is required, or 20% deposit, whichever is the greater. Invoice for the balance owing is to be paid when invoice is sent out late February. Full payment to be paid for orders from March onwards. Payment can be made by internet banking, cheque or overseas electronic transfer.

Phytosanitary Certificate & Agricultural Inspection

Most overseas countries require a Phyto Cert. The cost for this is approximately US$99. The Agricultural Inspection Fee depends on the number of plants being sent. We can estimate this when we know the size of the order.

Import Permit

Before shipping overseas, we may need an Import Permit from your country's Quarantine Authority. We are happy to dip plants in the relevant insecticides etc, if required by the permit.


Overseas purchasers will need to find out regulations from their own Quarantine Authority in their country.

Quality Of Plants

All plants will have a minimum of 3 buds unless specified otherwise with good sized storage root and will leave NZ in good condition.

All tree peonies are established on their own roots unless a grafted plant has been agreed to. Bud numbers are not considered with tree peonies, rather just the overall quality of the plant.
