Frequently Asked Questions


These are some questions you might have while shopping with us here on the Cooper&Smith website.

These are the words we use to identify the size of a propagation station design, i.e. whether it has one, two, three or four glass propagation vessels.

All our prices are in Australian Dollars (AUD) and include GST.

Sorry, we don’t offer gift wrapping. However, orders are shipped in a branded cardboard box with glossy product cards and no invoices or packing slips to spoil the surprise.

Thanks so much for your interest in stocking our collection of propagation stations, but at this time we don’t offer our products at wholesale prices.

Gift Cards

A Cooper&Smith Gift Card is perfect when you just can't decide which propagation station to choose.

Our gift cards do not expire.

We offer five different denominations: $30, $50, $80, $100 and $150. You're welcome to purchase multiple gift cards to create other amounts.

If the total order value is less than the balance on the gift card, that remaining balance can be spent on a future order.

A balance enquiry can only be processed by Cooper&Smith, so the recipient will need to contact us.

The gift card can be resent from the purchaser's order confirmation email.

The gift card can be used by anyone that has the redemption code.

Yes, the gift card is simply a form of payment like a credit card or Afterpay.

Gift card sales are final and no refund will be given.

Once the balance of the gift card has been spent, the gift card cannot be topped up or reloaded.

It is pretty easy! Simply wipe down the wood with a damp cloth when needed, this will keep the wood dust free and looking clean, as well as keeping it out of direct sunlight. You may need to rinse the glass vessels with water every few weeks inbetween cuttings.

Plant a Tree

You'll help remove an estimated 100 kilograms of carbon dioxide from our planet over the next 30 years.

We're proud to partner with Carbon Neutral and their Plant-a-Tree program to plant one tree for every order. We purchase trees in large batches ahead of their corresponding orders being placed.

You can! The Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor is 400km north of Perth.

We purchase trees in large batches, so unfortunately it's not possible to issue individual certificates for each order.
