OUR MAIL ORDER PLANT SERVICE
- DELIVERY CHARGES
Plants are usually sent out within a week of ordering but during busy times this may take a little longer. Once your order is dispatched it should be delivered by the courier within 48hrs. Our carriage prices used to be based upon weight alone but sadly this is no longer the case. The couriers volumise all parcels to work out a volumetric price making it very difficult to give a an exact price before measuring the box and weight. We are currently absorbing the increase in costs but with increasing fuel surcharges due to the world situation we are continuing to monitor the situation. There is a height limit of 2 metres with the courier. For items 2m-2.4m we can send out on a pallet- things over this height we will look at on an individual basis.
There are areas of the country which incur an extra surcharge this is mainly for Highlands and Islands, but Scotland as a whole and London postcodes also incur and extra £1.
We often find it is more economical to send large orders out via a pallet delivery service but we would contact to discuss the cost for this once we have your order together.
SENDING ORDERS ABROAD
We are really sorry to our European friends who we have dealt with for years and years but Brexit and the amount of red tape has put an end to all exports for us.

I believe people are more likely to re-order if they have been dealt with in an efficient, friendly manner.”
