Ordering information

At Living Desert Plants, we strive to offer excellent customer service and quality plants. No order is too small or too large for us, and there are no minimum order amounts. We offer a variety of different shipping methods when you place your order online, and we can ship anywhere in South Africa.


We accept payments with either Payfast or EFT. If using EFT please make the payment promptly and send us proof of payment.

Our packaging process

In order to ensure the safety of your plants, we do not send plants with pots or soil. Shipping plants ‘bare root’ prevents damage in transit in case the courier service is not gentle with your parcel. Pots and soil shown with the plants on our website are for display purposes only.

Your plants will be carefully wrapped and placed in securely in a box with plenty of plant-friendly packaging material.

Please note that there will be some soil left on the roots to make sure that the plants remain healthy in transit and so that they will acclimatize in their new home quickly.

We only send out orders on Tuesdays and Wednesdays to prevent your plants from getting stuck in a warehouse over the weekend.
