Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q: What is included in each Grow Kit?

A: Each Grow Kit includes a planter, soil, coconut bricks, fertilizer, and our Rooftop Republic Urban Gardening Guide, which details tips on how to start your gardening journey, care for your plants, and a growing calendar for the Hong Kong climate.
 

Q: How can I determine which Grow Kit is best for my needs?

A: Each grow kit has a different planter, which can be suited for different needs depending on your available space and what kind of vegetables you want to grow. Please refer to our Grow Kit comparison guide here.

 

Q: What are the basic criteria to transform my outdoor space into a garden?

A: Before you start your garden, we recommend you to verify the below:

  • Do you have adequate sunlight for growing veggies? Leafy veggies and herbs need around 5 hours of direct sunlight, while fruiting plants require at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day.

  • Does the space have access to a water source? This is to facilitate irrigation and there should be a tap on the rooftop that you can connect a hose to.

  • Do you have sufficient time to care for the veggies/herbs? This would also determine how many planters you should be getting.

  • Are there any existing waterproofing issues? If yes, do rectify it as it would be difficult to do so when the planters are moved up.

  • Do you have direct access to your space (any staircase required)? If yes, do take this into account when planning manpower.

  • Loading (kPa): Please make sure that the weight of the planters etc, does not exceed the load limit of the rooftop / terrace. 

 

Q: What is your return policy?

A: Please refer to our return policy here.

 

Q: Do you offer shipping outside of Hong Kong?

A: Unfortunately, we only ship within Hong Kong at the moment (excluding outlying islands) - sorry! If you are not in our delivery region but are interested in purchasing our products, please let us know at [email protected] We're looking to widen our delivery zone depending on interest.

 

Q: How much does delivery cost?

A: Since Grow Kits include the planter and heavy bags of soil, bricks, and fertilizer, we need to arrange direct van delivery rather than standard shipping - where items may be overweight or get damaged.

 

For our Grow Kits delivered to Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, and New Territories (excluding Discovery Bay and Ma Wan), we charge a flat rate delivery of $300.

For our Grow Kits delivered to Discovery Bay or Ma Wan, we charge a flat rate delivery of $400.

However, our smaller items (seeds, books, and tools) all will be mailed via post and have free shipping!

Q: Will Grow Kit delivery be straight to my rooftop / terrace / balcony?

A: Our Grow Kit delivery service includes the delivery straight to your to your rooftop / terrace / balcony if no stairs are required. Should you need us to deliver to your garden space that does not have elevator access and requires stairs, $50 will be charged per floor per grow kit (maximum five floors). After you complete your order, a member of our team will be in touch with you directly to ask whether you have elevator access or if your delivery requires transport up stairs. 

 

Q: How long will it take my order to arrive?
A: After you place your order, a member of our team will be in touch with you within 1 working day to confirm a delivery time and date. We are usually able to arrange delivery within one week’s time.

Q: Do you provide any installation service? How much does it cost?

A: Yes, we do provide an option for installation of your grow kit. We will charge 15% of the total purchase amount of the grow kit(s) with a min fee of HK$250. After you complete your order, a member of our team will be in touch with you directly to ask whether you would like to add on installation to your order. If you're ordering more than10 planters, please get in touch with us as we may be able to make a special arrangement for you.

 

Q: I have another question that isn’t listed here!
