Information

  • All our plants are hardy and perennial (come back year after year) unless otherwise specified in the description.
  • Every plant we sell is sold established in at least a 9cm pot, although many are in bigger pots. Unlike some nurseries, we do not sell plug plants because these require ongoing care when you receive them. Our plants can be planted in your garden as soon as you receive them, or they can be left in their pots for several weeks until you are ready to plant them.
  • As we grow everything ourselves and cannot just buy more stock when levels are low, there will be times when certain varieties are unavailable until the next batch has grown on.
  • We are not technically 'organic' but, as far as possible, we limit the use of pesticides and chemicals. We are fortunate enough to be situated in the countryside and we enjoy the environment and natural world that surrounds us, so we do what we reasonably can to protect it.
  • For a limited time we are offering free delivery for orders over £50.
If you have any questions about our plants, please feel free to contact us and we'll be happy to help.
