Ordering live plants

Our ‘live’ products are all grown with the utmost care and to the highest standards of quality.

We regularly check our nursery stock to determine exactly when they’ll be at the optimum time for delivery and send out our fresh, nursery-grown live plants (including vegetables, trees and flowers) when they’re at a stage of growth ready for you to plant on at home. You can see the table below for the approx delivery window.

Potato, Onion, Shallot, and Garlic

These are all currently on pre-order for autumn delivery. Please refer to the despatch window on individual product pages. 

Seed and Gardening Equipment

These are being despatched from our warehouse between 3 - 5 working days unless the product ordered states otherwise.

With all Orders

Please check the 'My Account' area on the website to check the status of your order. Items that have been despatched will be marked as fulfilled under each order.
