Can I order something that you don't sell?
We stock over 2000 varieties of plant and not all of them make it onto our website. If there is a specific variety or plant you are after, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Stock levels are kept fully updated on our website. If you plan to visit our nursery please do check our website for current availability before travelling, or please email us on email@example.com and we can put plants aside for you. Alternatively, order through the website and select the 'Collect from our nursery - FREE' option. Please allow 3 days between ordering & pick up.
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?

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?
Once you receive your dispatch email click on the tracking number link and you will be redirected to our couriers APC. Enter your tracking number and postcode there and you will be able to track the progess of your parcel(s).
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 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 thus requires us to maybe 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.
