Visiting the Centre

 1. Do we offer Gift Cards?

We offer $20, $50 and $100 Stella’s Home & Kitchen and Virginia Home & Garden Gift Cards. All of our Gift Cards can be used in-store across the entire centre on plants, pots, garden products, and in Stella’s Home & Kitchen and Doncho’s Café. You can purchase Gift Cards online and in-store. 

Our Gift Card's are a physical card & no electronic versions can be provided. 

The entirety of the Gift card must be spent in one transaction, no change will be provided. We recommend customers consider purchasing multiple smaller denominations if the gift recipient may not wish to use the entirety of the Gift Card in one transaction, e.g. x2 $50 cards instead of x1 $100.

Virginia Nursery Pty Ltd Gift Cards expire within 3 years from date of purchase.
