Delivery outside of the UK: Following the end of the transition period after the exit of the UK from the European Union it is now somewhat harder and more expensive for us to send outside of the United Kingdom. We are able to send (without too much trouble) seeds and/or dormant bulbs that can cope with the typical transit time including customs checks of 7 to 14 days, carriage cost for these orders would be in the region of £60.00. Plants and live bulbs can be sent outside of the UK at far higher cost that is likely to be in the region of £300.00 including phytosanitary certificate, these need to be sent using a much quicker service which is 2 to 3 days transit time. Please do contact us to enquire about exact costs and we will get back to you.
