COVID-19, Postal Delays, Shop Closed, Shop hours

No International Shipping available until further notice

Hey folks, the Big Bulbs shop is unable to process International orders (those from outside of Australia) due to COVID19 restrictions. We are currently unable to access international economy post.

We can still supply to Australian customers (please note parcels could take as long as 21 days to arrive), and can access express post/courier services for urgent International orders (note the cost will be significant).

Hopefully we can return to standard business by the 1 September 2020.

Stay well.
