Plant Delivery Key
In 2013 we introduced the delivery period in the product name, eg. Lettuce ~ Cocarde (March); Bunching Onion ~ 08-527 (September). The main reason in doing this is so in the basket as you select items you can see when they will be delivered to you. Plus the email confirmation will have this information too, so at any time you can check your order and find out when your plants will be delivered.
We set delivery windows during the year, it does mean that the plants will come out on the first day of that period but usually when they are ready. High demand we do the plants in date order, we can fit around your holidays if you inform us. We work with nature to get high quality plants to you when you need them.
(*=Ornamental plants have VAT charged to the delivery as they are classed as non-edible)
