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, on a Monday, 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 and the courier will email you on the delivery day to give you an estimated time of delivery.
Orders orders under £15 are sent via Royal Mail.
Receiving Your Plants
For courier deliveries, is not necessary to sign for your parcel, provided you have entered details of a 'safe place' to leave it in the order form (this is at your own risk).
The delivery driver will leave the parcel in your 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. After the courier has delivered your parcel and notified us that it has been delivered, it becomes your responsibility so please make sure your safe place is safe!
If we do not have details of a safe place, the parcel will need to be signed for. Royal Mail deliveries (orders under £15) always 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. 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 (orders under £15).
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.

Collection From The Nursery
We offer a 15% discount on orders that are collected. Enter code Collect15 in the coupon box to apply the discount. This discount is only valid on orders that we do not have to post.
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. Alternatively you can email/phone your order and pay on collection.
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.
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).
