We reserve the right to alter our prices.

Shipping and Handling

We aim to offer an efficient and reliable delivery service. The cost of your delivery is automatically calculated according to the size and weight of items ordered and the delivery address.

Postage is based on actual rate and weight tariffs. This prevents those placing small orders from being over-charged. In order to keep postage to a minimum some items may be sent in recycled packaging.

Our policy is to dispatch all orders within 5 days. If items are unavailable then we will contact you to advise those that are not in stock and those which can be sent immediately. We cannot be held responsible for delays in the postal services. It is best to allow up to 10 working days for delivery in Portugal, and up to 15 days outside Portugal. Please also allow for Public Holidays.

Secure Online Ordering

We use PayPal to process online payments and collect credit card details. Paypal use SSL (Secure Socket Layer technology) to accept your payment details. The padlock symbol is displayed at the bottom of the screen. Mediterranean Gardening and Outdoor Living does not have access to your credit card number since this is sent directly to PayPal.

Paypal provide secure online credit card and debit card payment solutions for thousands of online and mail order businesses and are the largest Payment Service Provider in the world. They adhere to the most stringent levels of fraud screening, ensuring that customer's details remain secure throughout the transaction process.

We accept all major credit and debit cards.

Returns and Refunds

You may return any product you buy from us without any fuss for a full refund if you contact us within 7 days of receiving your goods. The value of the item(s) refunded will be refunded to your card if you paid by credit or debit card. If you paid by cheque we will send you a cheque instead. We will not refund the cost of postage.

The guarantee is only valid if the product has not been damaged. We require that all goods be returned by recorded delivery, or that customers obtain a Certificate of Posting from the Post Office as we cannot be held responsible for any goods lost during transit.

Please include your name, delivery address, phone number and your ‘Transaction ID’ in any correspondence. You’ll find this in the confirmation email that you received from PayPal.

In the case of damage in transit, we accept no liability for any damage that occurs once goods have left our premises. If you do receive damaged goods, please retain all relevant documentation in case a claim needs to be made against the carrier.

If your order has been lost in the post it can only be re-sent or refunded 17 working days after it was dispatched because it is only after this period that the Portuguese postal service regards postage as officially lost. This applies within Portugal only.
