Salad Deliveries: 
We have developed a highly successful planting schedule to ensure that all of our  microgreen salads grow to achieve their optimum nutritional value. We harvest our  salads twice weekly, on Mondays and Thursdays.  
The deadline for same day delivery is 9:00 am on these harvest days. Orders received  before 9:00 am on one of our harvesting days will be sent out for delivery on the same  day. Orders placed after 9:00 am on a harvest day will be shipped on the next scheduled harvest day. So, depending on when during the week you place your salad order, you may have to wait a day or so to receive it.
It is important that your salad is refrigerated immediately when you receive it so please  make sure that you are available to take delivery of your order when it arrives OR that  you make appropriate arrangements for someone to take delivery and refrigerate your  order on receipt of delivery in the event that you are not able to do so. 
In the event of a harvest day falling on a UK Bank Holiday, orders will be shipped on the  next working day following the Bank Holiday. 
All Other Deliveries 
We try our best to fulfil orders as quickly as we can and wherever possible will arrange  for your order to be shipped to you on the same day that you place an order. 
Orders received by 12:00 midday Monday-Friday (excepting Bank Holidays) will be sent  by Royal Mail on the same day. 
Orders received after this deadline will be shipped to you on the next working day. 

Loss or Damage in Transit of Your Order: 

It is our responsibility to ensure that your order is delivered successfully to you. In the event  that your delivery does not arrive to you or the nominated person that you have asked us to  deliver your order to, or it arrives damaged, please contact us immediately so that we can  investigate.  

If it is found that your order is lost or has been damaged in transit, we will arrange for a  replacement order to be sent to you. Alternatively, if you prefer, we will fully reimburse you for  the cost of your order. 

Cancelling your Order: 

We reserve the right to refuse any order you place with us. We may, in our sole discretion, limit  or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household or per order. These restrictions may  include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or  orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address.

We reserve the right to limit or prohibit  orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers or distributors. 

Your Rights to Cancel your Order:

You are entitled to cancel your order within 14 days without giving any reason for your  decision.  
This cancellation period starts the day after the day on which the order is delivered into  your physical possession or the person that you have asked us to deliver the products  to. If your order is for multiple products and for some reason, it has been necessary to  deliver those products on different days, the cancellation period of 14 days will start the  day after the last of the product is delivered into your physical possession or the person  that you have asked us to deliver the products to.

Using our online Cancellation Form will enable us, without delay, to acknowledge receipt of your  cancellation. (In the event of a dispute, the burden to prove that you did cancel within  the cancellation period falls on you. Therefore, you are well advised to ensure that you  have some durable proof of your cancellation, as we could ask for this if there was a  dispute regarding whether or when you had informed us of your decision to cancel). 
We will reimburse you what you have paid us for the product you wish to cancel,  including any original delivery costs. We will reimburse you using the same payment  method that you used originally, or by an alternative payment method, subject to  agreement between both parties.

Your subscription will take effect immediately once you purchase your subscription.  

Because we follow a successful growing schedule to ensure our microgreen salads are grown  to achieve their peak nutritional value, we harvest our microgreen salads twice-weekly on  Mondays and Thursdays.

Orders received after 9:00 am on a harvest day will be  shipped on the next scheduled harvest day.

The delivery  date of your first subscription will be counted as the first date of your subscription period. 

Your payment details will be stored securely and you'll be charged for each of your future  deliveries on the day of dispatch. 

Subscriptions will auto-renew at the end of their duration. If you don’t want to renew a  subscription you can cancel it at any time in advance of your next scheduled delivery but  before 9:00 am on the day your order is scheduled to be harvested.
