We send out established plants in at least 9cm pots, so they can go into the ground immediately or you can leave them until you are ready to plant them.
We try to dispatch orders on a weekly basis, usually on a Tuesday or Wednesday and for all orders of more than one plant we use an overnight courier to limit the amount of time your plants are in transit. You will be notified by email when they have been dispatched.
Orders of a single plant are sent via Royal Mail.
Receiving Your Plants
For courier deliveries, is not necessary to sign for your order, provided there is a safe place to leave it. The delivery driver will leave it in a safe place, take a photograph and put a card through your door. If you are not likely to be in, please indicate a safe place in the relevant section of the checkout form. Please note that the safe place must be out of sight of the road. Royal Mail deliveries (single plant orders) need to be signed for.
Orders can be placed via the website for home delivery anywhere in the UK. Alternatively you can collect your order from the nursery for no charge (see below).
For a limited time, delivery is FREE for orders over £50 to mainland UK. For orders under £50, delivery is the standard £10.
We send potted plants, not plug plants!
For areas of the UK where couriers normally charge more, (such as Highlands and Islands etc.), there may unfortunately be a surcharge. You can view the price list from our courier here. Please order in the usual way for these areas and we will contact you to take the additional payment over the phone. N.B. If your order qualifies for free delivery, we will just ask you to pay the surcharge element. There is no surcharge for Royal Mail deliveries (single plant orders).
We may be able to delivery locally for no charge - please enquire.
There is no delivery charge for Instant Gift Vouchers as these are delivered via email to the recipient.
Overseas: We regret that for now we are not offering overseas delivery.
Collection From The Nursery
You are welcome to collect your order and there is no charge for this option. Just select the 'Collect from nursery' option in the order form 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.
If you would rather not pay online, you can email your desired list of plants and pay by Card or Cash when you you collect your plants.
The nursery is situated close to Stowe Landscape Gardens, Waddesdon Manor 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.
Terms and Conditions
Please click here for our terms, including returns policy.
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).
