Bunnings Allows You To Replace Your Plants If You Kill Them In The First 12 Months

Bunnings Allows You To Replace Your Plants If You Kill Them In The First 12 Months

Looking after a plant can be surprisingly difficult. It might need a very specific amount of water every day or have an exact amount of time in the sun - otherwise it turns to a brown, crispy shell of a life form.

But there might be a light at the end of the tunnel if you struggle with being a plant parent.

The Aussie DIY juggernaut known as Bunnings Warehouse has a policy that allows you to return your plant if you're not doing too well with it.

The rule is listed on the company's website, which says: "All our plants (except seedlings) are guaranteed for 12 months. If you're not 100% happy, return your plant (with receipt or tax invoice) and we'll refund it."

When you take the plant into the store, you have to have a Bunnings employee properly look over the plant before you get your refund or replacement.

It's worth noting that the policy doesn't include seedlings so you might want to be very careful and selective about which ones you end up choosing.

The policy has been around for a while however people are just catching onto it after it was posted onto social media and can't believe they can have another shot at being a green thumb.

One person wrote on the thread: "Does that include those orchids that look good for the first couple of weeks and then die a slow death?"

Another added: "We took our very recent dead plant AND receipt back to Bunnings and got a refund."

While it's never nice losing a plant to the elements (or maybe from your mismanagement), the idea that you can get a replacement or refund as quickly and simply as this is bloody brilliant.

It's hard to know what Bunnings ends up doing with your dead plant and whether they nurse it back to health with all their expertise or chuck them in the bin.

Some of the best tips we've found with plant care include:

  • Avoid over-watering.
  • Don't move them around a lot otherwise they'll struggle to adapt to their surroundings .
  • Keep pruning the dead leaves because it will help the plant avoid putting loads of energy into the dying stems.

So there you go.
