At Mahoney’s we are here to help you and your plants thrive! We guarantee that our plants are healthy when purchased, true to name, up to grade, and will survive with proper planting and care. Be sure to follow the instructions on our Planting Guide carefully to ensure your plants’ survival and success. If you should need to initiate our guarantee, please read below carefully.


All returns MUST be accompanied by a receipt or the purchase must be recorded under the purchaser’s Mahoney’s Rewards Account.

Our goal is to help you help your plant thrive! Don’t give up on your developing root system before sharing photos of the plant so we can help diagnose the problem. Before removing your plant from the ground, at the first sign of distress send photos to [email protected]


Please send the following photos:

  1. Close-up of the leaves or problem area.
  2. Medium distance that shows the growth habit.
  3. Full-length shot showing the base of the trunk and the plant in context.


Our plant care experts will evaluate the plant based on the photos. If the problem is treatable we will recommend the best course of action to help your plant thrive!


If the problem is not treatable we will process store credit for the full purchase price of the item if accompanied by a receipt or Rewards Account record.
