MAIL ORDER UPDATE – 1st July 2022

We have now finished taking orders for the summer. We will re open the website for orders again at the end of August for September dispatch. 

It has become increasingly difficult to send out taller items. The cost of sending these items has significantly increased due to external factors beyond our control and fluctuates weekly with the fuel surcharges. On some occasions there is a surcharge on certain items and there maybe times when we need to contact you regarding this.

We can only send out upto 2m in boxes, anything over 2m has to be sent on a pallet, but even then we are limited to 2.4m. We are unfortunately unable to send out anything over this height

 

 

OUR PLANTS -Although we have all the plants listed on our website they are not all on display at any one time. If you are looking for specific things please email in advance to make sure they are in the nursery.

The Nursery, Restaurant and Red Barn are OPEN to visit every day from 9am-5pm. 

 – IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO VISIT PLEASE CLICK HERE-

Looking good this month

I have just unwrapped my new Cercidiphyllum Heronsgate - I think it is the best quality plant I have purchased online ever !

Beautifully grown, well wrapped, larger than anticipated and what a fabulous variety - always a risk when you can't choose the plant yourself - but I would have chosen this one.

Thank you very much.

Dear Larch cottage

Just a quick note to confirm the arrival of the order.

Very impressed with the speed, the packaging and most especially the plants.

The shrub is an excellent size for the price and clearly extremely well grown and both the herbaceous plants look good (difficult to say more in February, that there are tiny leaves and "noses" peaking out is as much as one can expect!)

Thank you so much for your care and efforts

Jo hi,

I needed to write and thank you for the extreme care with which you had packed my trees, which I opened last night  - I’ve never received anything packed with such care, not to mention you taking the time to check with photos before you dispatched.

Kind regards, Stuart

Hi our first visit to your wonderful nurseries we were transported to Italy 🇮🇹. Everything including the staff was wonderful. The girls in the restaurant, the lady on the checkout and the lovely Helen who left the cap  my husband had left behind outside in a box for us to collect after hours. We even went for an Italian meal in the evening. Although we are not from this area we will definitely visit again and hope to be able to come to your Christmas event in November.
Thank you. Janette

Good afternoon, 

Many thanks for my order which I received today. I am very impressed with the thought and carefulness taken with packing the plants, which arrived in good condition. The protection using shredded paper around Nandina domestica var. leucorpa was really amazing and so effective!

Kind regards,

Dear Larch Cottage,

I would like to thank you for such good service !
I placed my order last week and i've just received it now - superb quality plants and packed with such consideration that i had to let you know how very pleased i am from start to finish.
I order quite a lot of plants online and the experiences aren't always good, however, the overall service from you has been perfect, couldn't wish for better.

Thank you,
Mrs. C. Denton.

Hi there,

I just wanted to give some feedback regarding my recent delivery of a large Hawthorn tree.
From initial enquiry to delivery of tree the service I have received has been excellent.
Good advice from Jo, and thanks for that.
The tree was delivered promptly and so well packaged and protected it would have withstood a nuclear attack !  The tree was great and now planted, pictures attached.
It was my first order following a recommendation from my brother in law 
and would have no hesitation in recommending your nursery to anyone.
Thank you
Brian

Dear Friends at Larch Cottage,

My shrubs arrived today – the first day possible from the instructions I sent you. Not only are the shrubs of brilliant quality, with flower buds for next season already showing, but I am just astounded at the effort that had gone into your packaging.  The plants arrived in perfect condition. I will definitely want to order more plants from yourselves.

Many thanks,

Paul

Perfect !

Good afternoon

I recently took delivery of the three plants I ordered from you.  Amazing plants, mature and fantastic size and the packaging was excellent.  I cannot fault either your service, your packaging or delivery in any way.  I just wish I didn’t live so far away as I would visit you as soon as possible!  

Kind regards and keep up the good work.

Pat 

Much appreciate your service and my best wishes.

The shrub arrived this morning. Looking very good and leaves turning golden already.Thank you so much for sending so quickly after your note and tell call yesterday. V good of you and especially welcome arrival as someone here today who could plant it! I am 94 and alas sadly I am not able to do any gardening myself anymore. I hope it will give pleasure to lots of people for a long time to come..
