The Courier Service is a normally 24hr service from time of dispatch not accounting for unseen circumstances i.e Weather and breakdowns,  it is not a guarantee that an order will be sent out to arrive before 4pm the day following an order – our normal turnaround times apply.

If you require your order on a particular day please detail this in the box within the Delivery Information area.
Our courier will leave the parcel in a particular place should you be out if you specify a safe place to leave in the box within the Delivery Information area at checkout.


Delivery outside of the UK: Following the end of the transition period following the exit of the UK from the European Union it is know substantially harder and more expensive for us to send outside of the United Kingdom. Seeds, plants and bulbs sent outside of the UK now require a phytosanitary certificate at an approximate cost of £300.00 and therefore understandably this will only be viable for large orders only. Please do contact us to enquire about exact costs and we will get back to you.
