Rice Road Greenhouses and Garden Centre (“we” and “us”) is the operator of (www.millionplants.com) (“Website”). By placing an order through this Website you will be agreeing to the terms below. These are provided to ensure both parties are aware of and agree upon this arrangement to mutually protect and set expectations on our service.

1. General

Subject to stock availability. We try to maintain accurate stock counts on our website but from time-to-time there may be a stock discrepancy and we will not be able to fulfill all your items at time of purchase. In this instance, we will fulfill the available products to you,  and depending on the number of out-of-stock items, will refund the missing items, substitute for the same plant in a larger, or smaller size (refunds for overages paid will occur if we must go with a smaller size), or email to request if a different substitution can be made.

2.1 Shipping Costs

Rice Road Greenhouses charges a flat-rate shipping fee within most provinces in Canada for products which are eligible to be shipped. Additional cost may occur should the buyer specifically request to purchase an oversized, or normally unshippable item through the webstore, or if the address needs to be updated or changed en-route. In addition, additional cost may occur should the customer request that we secure a specific shipping company, or keep to a specific shipping time. Payment for shipping will be collected with the purchase. This price will be the final price for shipping cost to the customer. If fees for shipping need to be collected after the initial order is made and has been paid, one can send the amount for shipping (or whatever overage amount is required) via either PayPal’s “send money” feature, or via Interac Email Money Transfer using the email address sales@millionplants.com.

During summer months (April – October), flat-rate shipping is $30

During winter months (November – March), flat-rate shipping is $45

Rice Road Greenhouses charges a variable, distance-based fee for delivery of bulk product/oversize goods within the Niagara area.

Orders must be received by Friday in order to qualify to be shipped on the following Monday/Tuesday.

If possible, we will try to also include orders made on Saturday/Sunday/Monday for the following shipment, however this will depend on whether we have enough time to do so, and cannot be guaranteed.

Rice Road Greenhouses and Garden Centre can now ship to P.O. Boxes through Canada Post, and may require longer-than-normal shipping times as a result. We are unable to offer couriers services to these locations.

4.7 Items Out Of Stock

If an item is out of stock, we will endeavor to email the customer to see if a replacement or substitution would be possible. If contact cannot be made, we will cancel and refund the out-of-stock items and dispatch the rest of the order.
If possible, we will substitute an item of greater value at no extra cost, or an item of lesser value with a refund being issued for the difference paid.

4.8 Delivery/Shipping Time Exceeded
