Calculated rates

We use a direct API link to Australia Post for our rates, so the rates you see at the checkout are fed directly from Australia Post. The rates are not estimates, they are the actual Australia Post rates, we do not add any extra to the price.
The rates are based on the actual weight of the order [or the cubic weight if its higher] and your delivery address.
We don't make any profit from shipping rates, we only charge you what we're charged.

Australia Post have weight breaks for their shipping rates
5kg-22kg max - This rate is calculated per kg and may be higher than if you stick with the 3.01kg-5kg bracket.
The above break are subject to change and may depend upon your location.

Plant Weights

Here is an estimate on what our plants weigh, please use this as a guide only as some plants that are larger and taller weigh more than smaller plants. The weight for every product will be just below the product description, please use this to calculate the total order weight.

Custom Packaging

Our custom packaging is beautiful + strong so that your plants arrive safe and in good condition. We don't charge any additional price for packaging materials.


We send plants exclusively with Australia Post Express. Our shipping app knows when there is a plant in the order and will only display Express Post rates.
As plants are top priority we ship them with the fastest method possible.

Magical Maxis

OurMagical Maxis rangearegrown in larger pots 175mm and for too big to fit in our regular packaging.
We've offered these larger plants withcomplimentary shipping as they need to ship one plants per box and cannot be packed together with any of our other plants due to their size.
The weight of these plants will not affect the capped 5kg shipping price.

At this stage we are not shipping out Magical Maxi range to WA, NT or TAS.


Accessories can be shipped with either Parcel Post or Express Post. Our shipping app will assess your shopping cart and identify what you are shipping. If you only have accessories in your cart, it will display rates for Parcel Post and Express Post, however if you have accessories + plants in your cart it will only show rates for Express Post.


We use untracked letters for posting keyrings, these are sent in a large letter using stamps so there is no way to track these deliveries.
We do give the option at the checkout to select a paid shipping option with tracking, including Parcel Post and Express Post.
Delivery timeframes for untracked letters are generally a few weeks but can take much longer to arrive.

The wait is over on cardboard box top

Every plant from Uprooted has been lovingly tended to and cared for, so of course we want to ensure that when it reaches you after its trip in the mail, it arrives in tip top condition. After months of researching and testing all types of packaging ideas and options, we have crafted an architectural plant packing system that will keep your plants snug, healthy and intact. Whilst typical packaging for online shopping relies heavily on bubble wrap or paper to keep items padded, when youre sending plants the trick is actually to keep the plants in place so that they a) cant get bumped around and b) their leaves stay as in tact as possible.

Outside boxInside box from top

We use high quality boxes to protect your precious cargo

We use high grade cardboard for the packaging for not just the box on the exterior, but also within the walls to give it the box extra structural integrity necessary for strengthening the outer shell! Each box has ample air space within it to ensure that the plant has access to oxygen and isnt squeezed into place. The box is clearly marked this side up and contains live plants so that the postie knows how to handle your precious cargo

Your plant will arrive already in a pot

Each plant (with the exception of tube stock) will come in its own nursery pot eliminating the need for you to pot it up once you receive it what a relief! This helps to keep the plant even healthier as it removes the stress from having its roots exposed. We carefully use plastic wrap, tape and tissue paper to ensure the dirt stays where it should (in the pot), and tissue paper around the leaves to gently protect them from the sides of the box

When your plant arrives

Ensure you delicately and carefully cut through any tape on the top and bottom of each box. Then hold the outside of the box, whilst pulling the inner layer of cardboard out so you can slide your plant safely out. And there you have it, your new brand new plant, ready to sit on a shelf or window sill!

We recommend leaving your new plant in its pot for a minimum of 2 weeks before repotting, this allows time to acclimatise to your home and reduce unnecessary stresses.
