Shipping and Packing Charges

UK Mainland Customers
 
DISPATCHED YEAR-ROUND WHERE POSSIBLE
 
     Postage is calculated by order value with a maximum of £8.50 for UK orders (excluding scottish highlands and islands). Smaller orders of 1 plant ONLY may be sent by Royal Mail First Class if we feel it may be cheaper although the recent price increase by Royal mail on the 1st April 2013 has made this unlikely! For this reason we recommend that you try to order 3 plants or more to offset the carriage charge a little.
 
  Normally, despatch will take place within 7 days but this may extend a little during busy periods or when we're attending flower shows. If your delivery is urgent then please contact us first.
 
     Not sure if you will be at home when delivery is attempted? Why not have it delivered to you at your work address, it almost guarantees delivery on the day stated! Couriers will always find a registered business address.
   
     Scottish islands - unfortunately all of the couriers who operate in our area have a surcharge for your area. The correct rate can be selected during checkout.
Postage will be charged at cost. Any excess postage will be refunded back to your card at dispatch time.
 We currently use Parcelforce Worldwide and will supply tracking information direct to your email address supplied. They will also send a SMS to your mobile telephone number if you supply this. We may use Royal mail's first class or special delivery if we find this a more economical method.
 
European Customers - excluding mainland United Kingdom
 
ORDERS WILL NOT BE DISPATCHED BETWEEN 1ST APRIL AND 1ST OCTOBER DUE TO SEASONAL GROWTH. Please contact us if you really need them!

Excess compost will be removed to reduce weight unless otherwise instructed. Shipping costs will however be substantially more if excess compost is left around the roots, occasionally up to twice the cost. After placing your order, please email us to advise only if you would prefer the compost leaving on. There may be an extra charge for this.
