Ordering, Payment and Dispatch

Our Carriage charge is a flat rate, £10.00, for any number of plants to most parts of the UK.



Ordering Online:

After you have placed your order on-line you will receive an automatic reply virtually immediately telling you that it has been placed.

You will then receive, within the next twenty-four hours, a personal email from us confirming details, a suggested delivery date and a request for delivery instructions if not already provided.  We will ask for a location of where the box(es) of plants may be left - for example by the back door, in the garage, with neighbour at no.XX etc.  We prefer to put 'signature optional' on the delivery note then there is no need for you to stay in to sign for the plants. If you would prefer the added security of signing for the plants please let us know and we will note your dispatch note accordingly. If the delivery date we nominate is not convenient we can alter it to suit you.

Should you wish to change your order please contact us; we're a small nursery and it's not a problem.
