Obtaining Your Guarantee

If Planted by You

The Guarantee is honored in the form of a one-time credit toward plant material purchased in-store. Receipt must be presented, as well as proof of deceased plant such as photo documentation or the plant itself.

If Planted Through Alsip

Guarantee is honored in the form of a one-time credit toward the plant material and the planting costs. Re-plantings will need to purchased and rescheduled through the Frankfort Nursery Department, or through on of our Recommended Landscapers. Delivery charges are not included should a re-planting need to be performed. A delivery charge will apply should newly planted material shift due to high winds or other causes to have us readjust the material.

If Planted by Landscaper

The customer must have purchased the plants personally, and not through a  discounted landscaper account in order to be considered for qualifying plant guarantees. Plants purchased through any contractor accounts do not qualify for the plant return guarantee.

If Purchased Online

Alsip Home & Nursery does not warrant or guarantee the life of shipped live plants, due to a variety of possible factors (watering, weather, etc.)

We can only guarantee that they arrived in good condition.
If your plant arrives in poor transit condition, please follow our Plant Shipping instructions.

What do I do if my plant is not acting as it should?

Do not immediately dig the plant up. We want your plant to not just survive, but thrive in its new home. Contact the Alsip location at which the plant(s) were purchased and speak to a nursery associate or manager about possible solutions. In some cases, certain plants can go through of period of transplant shock when going into their new soil and most likely will recover if the proper steps are taken in order to remedy the problem.
