- What do our customers say about us? Please read our Testimonial Page
- Not all the plants I want are available. Can you hold my order until they are?
No, But we can notifiy you when they are ready for sale. Just do a fruit tree search and put your email address and mobile phone down to be notified the moment they are ready. We can not put plants aside due to selling our plants when they are the correct age and height to be sent by freight and planted by you. It may take months for a wish list of plants to be available all at once and by this time some of the existing plants ordered may not meet the quality and standards we have in place.
- Can I prepurchase the trees I want? Yes, we do have a prepurchase option for many plants that are not available, this will be displayed beside the product on the appropriate web page and is very simple to process, click on the prepurchase option and follow the prompts.

- Can you send to Western Australia?
Yes, we can send to WA, there are freight and quarantine costs on top of the cost of the plants which will be calculated automatically online. The distance between Northern NSW and WA is also a consideration when placing your order as this does involve a risk due to the distance. We do our best to minimise this risk by taking great care when we pack your trees. We send to WA every couple of months, see FAQ 2 for calculating your freight.
- What happens if my plants are damaged in transit?
99% of plants arrive in great condition to our customers. In some cases the plants may be damaged and Daleys will act in good faith to advise you on revitalising the damaged plant or offer a discount or gift voucher on your next purchase.
- How big are the trees? All our trees are grown in 140 mm or 165mm pots, the boxes we ship our plants in are 90 cm tall and all our trees must fit within these boxes to be shipped out. If necessary trees will be tip pruned before shipping, this initiates the formation of new buds which will help with the successful establishment of your fruit trees.
