"All our plants (except seedlings) are guaranteed for 12 months. If you're not 100 per cent happy, return your plant (with receipt or tax invoice) and we'll refund it," reads the website.


The policy has been in place for a while but plant lovers are just catching on with the details circulating on social media.

It excludes flower and vegetable seedlings. Customers who would prefer to replace their plant can get an exchange instead of a refund.

Bunnnings National Greenlife buyer Andrew Grant said "Our perfect plant policy has always been in place and allows customers to shop with confidence across our nursery range."

Facebook commenters rejoiced, with one writing: "Sounds like this policy was made just for me!"

"Cool, I'm getting all my plants there from now on!" commented another.

Another wrote: "What happens if you are a serial plant killer?"

Bunnings also shared some tips for keeping plants alive and well on their Instagram page.

"Not great at keeping your plants alive? Then a mother in law's tongue is for you!" reads the caption.


"It's low-maintenance and only needs to be watered when the soil is completely dry."

The Herald has contacted Bunnings for comment.
