Véritable® Indoor Garden Warranty Terms & Conditions

The information below is relevant for all Véritable® Indoor Garden units sold by Mr Fothergill's Seeds Pty Ltd.



Véritable® grants the customer a free national guarantee which takes effect on the date of delivery.

The product is only guaranteed if the product is used in accordance with the instructions and for its intended purpose.

Claims will only be accepted on the submission of proof of the purchase from the Mr Fothergill's website or from one of our authorised Australian resellers and accompanied by its purchase invoice.


The Customer has a period of two years from the delivery of the goods to act as a legal guarantee of conformity, subject to the conditions under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 and similar state and territory laws.

The warranty includes the replacement of parts and labour.



Véritable® designs and markets live products. As the natural seed germination rate is between 65% to 95%, we cannot guarantee 100% germination. To ensure maximum satisfaction, we offer a guarantee on our Lingots®.

The Lingot® guarantee is valid for any purchase of a Veritable Lingot® on the Mr Fothergill's website or from one of our authorised resellers (we reserve the right to request proof of purchase prior to accepting your warranty claim).

For any request for coverage under warranty, please contact us by sending us a photo of the Lingot® in your Véritable Indoor Garden and indicating the variety and date of planting.

If your Lingot® is diagnosed as non-compliant, we will ship a new Lingot® free of charge. To be effective, the request for warranty coverage must take place between 20 and 30 days following the planting date of the Lingot®.

The Lingots® are guaranteed for 1 year from the date of purchase (date of the invoice). Lingots® will only be covered by warranty if grown using a genuine Véritable Indoor Garden unit. Replacements will only be shipped to an Australian address.
