Shipping

Plants will be shipped in spring from the beginning of April until the end of June and from the beginning of September until the end of October. Given the natural growth phases of the plants, are these the most suitable periods for shipment.

We deliver with 'The Post'. Once your order has left our nursery we will send you an e-mail, to inform you about the delivery date. This mail will contain a link to follow your parcel by tracking via the webpage of 'De Post' during the duration of the shipment.

Delivery Period

Orders are processed in order of receipt. The delivery time – i.e. the time between placing the order and our delivery – is during peak times, such as in the spring, more than in the autumn.

Since the natural growth of plants can’t be predicted precisely and ALGERA strives to deliver the best quality, it’s not possible to determine the exact delivery date in advance. We keep you informed about the delivery date by mail.
