(Fee includes travelling expenses within a 25 mile radius of Beth Chatto Gardens. Regretfully, this service can not be offered for gardens further than 25 miles from Elmstead Market, CO7 7DB)


Treat yourself or a friend to some pre-booked, one-to-one Beth Chatto inspired garden advice. Our Creative Horticulturalist, Lucy Redman, will come to your garden and help you choose the right plants for the right place. She is a Garden Designer with over 30 years experience and now runs a range of horticultural courses here at the Gardens.  

In the consultation Lucy will suggest plants that will cheer up that problem area, taking into consideration all of the conditions your garden has to offer. A rough sketch of the suggested plants and their positions will be provided. A quote can be provided at a later date for any plants you may wish to purchase also.

Following on from the consultation (for an additional fee - see information below and prices above), Lucy can fix a date to meet you at our nursery to spend an hour plant shopping. In this time she will help you select the plants that will transform your garden. We suggest that this is best done on a Monday when we are closed to the public, so you can have the whole nursery to yourselves to peruse and decide on the best plants for the job.

Reviews
Our very helpful and enthusiastic garden designer Lucy visited our garden and drew a plan full of interesting suggestions . Owing to the beginnings of lockdown we saw our plants selected on FaceTime according to my chosen list. We were also very pleased with the quality of the plants and the manner with which they were packed and delivered .

FAQ
  • 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 packhouse@bethchatto.co.uk

  • Availability

    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 packhouse@bethchatto.co.uk 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?

    We are pleased to be able to deliver our plants throughout the UK and Republic of 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.

    For orders dispatched to England, Wales and Scottish Lowlands the charge for delivery is:

    £9.95 for orders up to £200
    £15.00 for orders from £200 to £500
    £20.00 for all orders over £500

    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.

  • 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.
