Please understand that some factors are out of our control, such as drought, pest damage and natural disasters. These factors will affect our ability to issue you an in-store credit.

Guarentee & Warranty Eligibility

Our guarantees and warranties do not cover plants that are installed in a growing zone outside of the recommended range, or losses caused by livestock, drought, insecticides, herbicides, fires, floods, etc. In addition, flower bulbs, annual plants, hardgoods and specified gift items are not eligible for guarantee or warranty coverage.


Canceling Orders

All canceled orders incur a 20% fee of the total order value. This fee is in place to cover the operational costs involved when canceling an order. Once the process of fulfillment starts, no cancellations are permitted. Upon approval of a cancellation, there will be a refund of 80% of the order value OR if preferred, the customer may elect to receive an in-store credit for the full purchase price, thereby avoiding the 20% fee entirely. Changes to transactions may incur additional fees.


Did You Accidentally Order Twice?

In the event of an accidental duplicate purchase, please contact us immediately by phone (402-934-8116) or by using our customer service portal to inform our staff. We will review and address any possible duplicate orders however, once the process of fulfillment starts, no cancellations are permitted.


No Refused or Returned Packages are Accepted

We do not allow the refusal or return of perishable plant materials due to agricultural restrictions.

If an issue arises upon delivery, you agree to accept the merchandise, notify our team within 3 days of delivery, and follow our service team’s advice to resolve any such concerns directly. We will work to resolve your issue.

Hard goods materials such as fertilizers, staking kits, etc. may be returned. Once returned to Nature Hills Nursery in the original unopened manufactured packaging, a refund of 60% of the value of the merchandise will be provided to the customer, excluding shipping costs.


Refunds

We will only refund a customer upon the approval of a cancellation or upon the return of a saleable hard good (i.e., fertilizer, staking kit, etc.). Damaged hard goods or hard goods that have been opened from their original manufactured packaging are not considered saleable and no refund will be provided.

Could a Wrong Plant Have Been Shipped?

We will not refund the purchase price of the plant, but we will replace the plant at our expense. Customer acknowledges that they understand the plant type they are purchasing as posted on each product page at www.naturehills.com.

We require a picture of the items received; including the packing slip and we will reship. We don't offer refunds, but if the missing item is out of stock customer may substitute an item of comparable value


#ProPlantTips for Success

While we work tirelessly to provide all the information anyone could possibly want about the plants we sell, it’s a monumental task that inevitably leaves some details out. However, we do provide the base plant facts such as USDA growing zone ratings and highlights.

We always suggest doing your own research when planning your garden with us. Other sources may state information differently or a plant's highlights may have changed slightly in recent years. As a nursery that ships nationwide, we state plant facts based on the USDA Growing Zone Map and thus, do not take into account specific microclimates. If you’re interested in learning about your microclimate, your local agriculture extension office is a valuable resource.

Keep in mind: basic care practices like watering, pruning, mulching, and selecting the right plant for your climate all contribute towards the success of your garden. These same practices also contribute to how plants are presented in pictures and videos on our website. We try our best to show you pictures of what the mature plant will look like once established in a landscape.


Let’s Talk Bareroot

Have you ordered a bareroot plant or are you thinking about doing so soon but aren’t sure what to expect? No problem, it’s one of our favorite topics.

Ordering a plant bareroot simply means it will ship to you in its dormant state without dirt covering the roots. Think about trees outside during the winter - leafless and dormant. This is the same concept. A bareroot tree or bush might shock you at first. Please plant it in the ground, give it adequate water, and watch it break dormancy within a month or two.

Planting bareroot has many benefits such as being a great deal less expensive than their containerized counterparts and because the roots aren’t enclosed in a container, they’re ready to reach into your ground and establish your plant faster.

We will not evaluate bareroot plants for loss claims until it’s failed a scratch test.

If you’re interested in learning more about bareroot plants along with visuals of what to expect, check out our #ProPlantTips article and Videos.


A Note About Container Sizes

The plants on our website are sized using industry-standard pot sizes. These sizes are smaller, though comparable, to true gallon measurements. Container size can be used as an indication of how mature the plant is, however, this isn’t always the case. To see visual representations of industry-standard container sizes, please visit our #ProPlantTip article or Video.


Discounts & Coupons

Only one coupon can be used per order and cannot be combined with other coupons to receive multiple discounts. Credit will not be given to unused portions of your coupon. Coupon codes exclude hard goods, grass plugs, warranties, and shipping and handling fees unless otherwise noted. Coupons must be applied at the time of purchase and cannot be applied to an order that's already been placed.
