Plants for postage have their pots removed, and are then bagged and wrapped in newspaper before being securely packed in a cardboard box.  This method has been tried and tested over the years, and has been found to be the most satisfactory and environmentally friendly method as it avoids using plastic blister packs or other non eco friendly packaging.  We use recycled boxes wherever possible.

Plants are dispatched by first class post which ensures an overnight delivery.  Orders are Parcel Deliverydispatched Monday – Thursday  to ensure no plants are left in a sorting office over the weekend.

Larger orders may be sent by Parcelforce or other courier.
