Delivery Information

Update 6th December - orders are being dispatched within 7 days.

Christmas - please note that our last date for dispatching orders before Christmas is Monday 13th December. The couriers get too busy after this point to risk our plants suffering in the Christmas rush. Orders received on or before 12th December will be dispatched on or before the 13th. Orders placed after the 12th will be sent when we resume dispatching w/c 10th January. Gift Vouchers are unaffected and will continue to be emailed throughout the holiday period.

We send out established plants in at least 9x10cm pots, so they can go into the ground immediately or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant them. Most orders are dispatched within 7 days, often sooner and we deliver all year round.

You should receive an automatic confirmation email when you place your order. You will be notified by email when your plants have been dispatched and the courier will email/text you on the delivery day to give you an estimated time of delivery. Please check your spam folder for messages from us. 

Delivery (if you are local and wish to collect, please see further down)
We use couriers (DHL and APC Overnight) for the majority of orders. Occasionally we may use Royal Mail for locations in remote areas. Our plants are packaged securely in custom-made packaging within strong cardboard boxes, which are made to our specification. We regret that since Brexit, in line with most other nurseries, we cannot ship to Northern Ireland or Europe.

You can see how we pack and dispatch our plants here.

There is a box on the checkout form to indicate a safe place for the parcel to be left by the driver. Please note that the safe place must be out of sight of the road. If we do not have details of a safe place, the parcel may need to be signed for. 

For areas of the UK where couriers normally charge more, (such as Highlands and Islands etc.), there may unfortunately be a surcharge. The surcharge depends on the size of order and we try to avoid it where we can. You can view the price list from our courier here. Please feel free to contact us to discuss your particular location/order.

We may be able to delivery locally at no charge - please enquire.

There is no delivery charge for Instant Gift Vouchers as these are delivered via email to the recipient.


We send potted plants, not plug plants!

Collection From The Nursery
You are welcome to collect your order and there is no charge for this option. Payment can be made in advance or by card payment on the day.

Select the 'I want to collect' option in the order form to avoid the postage charge and we will contact you to arrange a mutually convenient time for you to collect your plants from our nursery site, just outside the market town of Buckingham. Alternatively you can email or phone your order. 

The nursery is situated close to Stowe Landscape Gardens, Waddesdon Manor, Silverstone Racing Circuit and several other attractions, so why not plan a day out and collect your plants on the way home?

Collection From Plant Fairs
Each year we attend a number of shows and plant fairs and you are welcome to collect your order from one of these events at no charge.

Pre-order Plants
Orders which contain pre-order plants will be dispatched when all of the plants are available.

While we make every effort to keep the website up-to-date with plant availability, it is impossible for stock levels to be 100% accurate, especially during busy times. We sell plants online, at the nursery and at plant fairs etc, so our stock levels are constantly changing. Please feel free to email your wishlist to check availability. If an item is unavailable and you have not chosen to accept substitutes during the checkout process, we will refund the relevant amount for the unavailable plant(s).
