Your own Beth Chatto style border, designed to suit your garden

Border design service for £200 including a £50 design fee and £150 plant voucher.

To have your completed design within 4 weeks*

*You will receive your completed design within 4 weeks from the date we receive the questionnaire back that is sent to you. 

Many gardens are a mix of dry, damp, shade and sun, just as in Beth's own garden.

If you have a particular border that doesn't quite fit the scope of the Beth Chatto Collections, then we now offer a bespoke border design service.

The border design service has a £50 design fee and gives you a £150 plant voucher. This enables you to have a plan within a time schedule that suits you.

The designs are created by Jake (who has 11 years experience working in Beth's style), Nicola and the team who all work on the nursery, advising customers daily about 'right plant, right place', and plant care and conditions. 

How it works...

1. Purchase the service and fill in the relevant details.

2. We will then send you the questionnaire for you to complete and send back to us, along with any photos. 

3. We set about designing your border and send it to you along with a quote for the plants.

4. If happy, you confirm the order and £150 that you have already paid comes off the total amount. We pick up the plants and you can either collect or we send them out to you.

Please note: This is a plant design service based on the conditions and dimensions of your border and shouldn't be considered a garden design service. Your voucher will go towards the cost of filling your chosen border with plants. Your voucher may not cover the cost of all the plants you will need for your border: this will depend very much on your border size. A plant care plan is now also available so you can have confidence in how to look after your new planting. Borders are to a max of 100m2. If your border is bigger, please contact and we can quote for this. 

The image: This is an example of the plans we draw. Simple and easy to follow. It's effectively planting by numbers.

The availability of this service will depend on the number of designs we have outstanding. If showing as 'out of stock' it is because we currently have designs to complete.

  • 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?

    We are pleased to be able to deliver our plants throughout the UK and Ireland.  Unfortunately, we are currently unable to deliver overseas.

  • How much does delivery cost?

    Rather than absorb the cost of postage within our plant price we prefer to charge a realistic postage and packing charge.

    £9.95 for orders up to £200
    £15.00 for orders from £200 to £500

  • When will I receive my order?

    Once you’ve placed your order online you will receive a confirmation email.  Your order will then be dealt with as quickly as possible by our experienced mail order team. 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. Please see our Delivery Information page for more details and charges for Scottish Highlands & Islands, Northern Ireland, Irish Republic, Isle of man, Isle of Wight and the Channel Isles.

  • 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.
