The way we deliver has changed, we used to, like all online plant companies deliver via a courier service but we found that far too many plants were damaged in transit, causing stress and bother to both our customers and ourselves. So much so that we decided to stop selling plants online altogether. This year we have decided to try again with a new approach and that is to send out plants using the pallet network which altogether avoids mis-handling and potential damage, ensuring plants arrive at you doorstep in the same condition in which they left the nursery. This is why our flat rate delivery charge is £30.00, to ensure a damage-free plant-happy delivery from us to you.
We can deliver from Tuesday to Friday, if you have a preferred day please let us know and we can book in to suit.
Due to the increased cost of doing so, we can no longer deliver off the UK mainland via the website. If you are off the UK mainland and wish to order plants, please contact us, and we can arrange a quote for delivery.
