Delivery Times

Our current average Dispatch time is approx. 3-5 working days for all items in stock/season.

In the past we used to allow ordering of some items on the site in advance of their delivery season so that the plants could be dispatched at the appropriate planting time. However we have now discontinued with this except for a few items (see Pre-Orders info below), therefore if you see it on the site, you can either order it for immediate delivery or if it's not available you will have the option to be notified as soon as an item comes in to stock if it is a seasonal one.

Alternatively you may like to add any out of stock items to your wish list with in your account. So unlike other sites who'll take your order and money months in advance with no visibility on delivery, if you spot something you like the look of, you can order with confidence that it will arrive within a few days. We recommend getting your plants settled in as soon as possible after arrival, don't forget to check out our compost range so you can get planting upon arrival - check our planting guide here.

Pre-Order items

On certain occassions, we may from time to time offer a small number of seasonal items that are in high demand on a PRE-ORDER basis, however, these are very minimal, and will be clearly indicated throughout the website with their specific delivery times published. Any other items ordered at the same time as these will normally ship out in advance of the PRE-ORDER item. Pre-Order items are usually very special plants with limited supply and high demand, giving you the chance to get them before they run out, or items such as Christmas Tree when you want to get organised in advance and order up early.
