Terms & Delivery

Postage and Packing charges

Delivery of plants is usually by the APC courier network to most of mainland U.K. Books are also sent via APC or Parcel post depending on area.  Where books are ordered with plants these will be sent together via APC. Gift vouchers are usually sent by normal post unless ordered with plants. Event confirmations are sent by email.

Using APC is not necessarily the cheapest form of delivery but we have found it is definitely the quickest and most reliable choice. In most cases the service is for delivery the next day after dispatch (not next day after ordering), which we feel is most important as plants don’t like being in boxes longer than they have to be.

Orders are dispatched in rotation and will normally take from 7 to 14 working days (ie; excluding weekends and Bank Holidays), for delivery from receipt of order. Dispatch time can be shorter during quieter periods, but can also take a little longer during especially busy spells.

The couriers are instructed to leave the order if you are out. It is therefore not necessary for you to be in to accept delivery. If you wish to add any specific instructions for the courier you can add these in the Order Notes box on the checkout page when ordering, or alternatively you can email the nursery at quoting your order number.

If you are going to be away at any time from placing the order do please let us know via the Order Notes box on the checkout page or alternatively you can email the nursery at quoting your order number.

TO COLLECT; if you wish to collect from the nursery place your order choosing the ‘To Collect’ option for delivery and we will email you when your order is ready. If you have a particular date when you would like to collect do mention this in the Order Notes box or email us and we will do our best to have your order ready at that time; nonetheless please do not travel without an email confirmation from us that it is ready for you to collect.

BUYING FROM THE PLANT CENTRE; you are very welcome to buy plants from our onsite plant centre at the nursery during opening hours. However please be aware that although a plant may be showing as in stock on our website it does not necessarily mean that it will be available in the plant centre at the time of your visit. If you are travelling any distance for a specifc plant it is always advisable to check with the nursery in advance to avoid a wasted journey.

DELIVERY AREAS; Delivery of plants is to most of the U.K mainland, including Isle of Wight and Scottish Islands. Regret we are not able to send to the Channel Islands, Isle of Man, Northern Ireland, Southern Ireland or Europe.
