Beth Chatto's Alpine Collection
We've taken the hard work out of planning your garden with these Collections. No need to worry about which plant will grow next to which plant, or how much space they will need. Beth and her gardening team have selected Beth's favourite plants to suit the different growing conditions in your garden. They have also drawn up a planting plan to create easy-to-follow instructions for creating your Beth Chatto-inspired garden. The plants in Beth's Alpine Collection are the same as those used in the garden and have been picked specifically to recreate Beth's unique planting style.
The 12-plant Collection covers an area of 1-2 metres sq.
Three of the 12-plant Collection covers an area of 3-6 meters sq.
When you buy this collection, you will receive the carefully selected and packaged plants and we will also email you a detailed planting plan, to take the hard work out of planning your border. Or if space is limited, plant into a selection of pots and troughs.
"I realise that many people love gardens but lack the time to create their own. My team and I have done the hard work for you, to enable you to create a low-maintenance, beautiful garden" Beth Chatto

What size pots will my plants be supplied in?
Our plants are sold in a range of pot sizes dependent upon their growth needs:
9cm – for all our alpine plants
1 Litre – for the majority of our herbaceous perennials
2 Litre (occasionally 3 Litre) – for shrubs and those herbaceous perennials which require a larger root run
Some plants may be supplied 'bare root' and will be of comparable size to pot grown plants.
Where do you deliver?

When will I receive my order?

During peak periods it can take up to 10 working days to receive your plants. Once the team have selected your plants the status of your order will change to “processing”. Finally - when your order has been carefully prepared and boxed and is ready to be collected by our courier - you will receive a dispatch email and can expect your plants to arrive the following day (for England, Wales & Scottish Lowlands). We use a special fragile overnight delivery service to ensure that your plants spend the minimum amount of time in transit.

How do I track my delivery?

On thre day of delivery you will also receive an email and/or text to your mobile number, with a delivery time slot.
Why has my plant been cut back?
Traditionally, the mail order plant season has run from October to March. This was because many plants would be dormant during this time of the year and foliage would either be reduced or absent, making them easier to post.
Now, mail order runs all year round and this may mean we need to cut back some of your plants, particularly from April to October. Plants with tall flowering stems and lots of foliage may lose a great deal of water in transit and cutting back helps reduce this stress. Cutting back will not harm your plants but will help in their establishment by promoting new root and shoot growth once planted.
We are accepting orders and dispatching them as soon as we can. Current delivery times are up to 1-2 weeks.
Current volumes of orders with courier companies are very high, so occasionally there are delays regarding delivery. Also, orders with multiple boxes, may be separated in transit, but should be with you shortly.
Please note: if Government advice or our staffing situation suddenly prevents us from dispatching, then rest assured that your plants will be reserved and cared for until such a time as we can dispatch again. Orders are currently placed on this understanding.
Click & Collect FREE from nursery is available, please select at checkout
The welfare of our staff is of the upmost importance and we have put measures in place to ensure the current guidelines on social distancing and hygiene are adhered to.
