Orders Delivery Update

Thank you all for your patience while we found our feet with the delivery service. We have now got a system in place and hope that we can offer you next week delivery, either a Wednesday or Friday depending on where you are.

We are now awaiting the governments announcement on Thursday regarding next steps. At that point we will update you further as to if and what capacity we can open, whether it be open but possibly on an appointment only basis to be able to keep the social distancing guidelines or pay and collect.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support and kind words, honestly it has been so humbling to know how much we are thought of.

Keep safe everyone.

Telephone Orders

****Customer Notice****

Due to high demand we have had to stop taking telephone orders. If you need to order then please email us, please be aware that we are currently fully booked for the next three weeks.

**We would please ask for you not to order if you live outside our 5 mile delivery area or cannot reach the £50 minimum order. We are also NOT taking hanging baskets orders.**

We have been overwhelmed with orders and are struggling both physically and mentally to cope. This is a much harder way of selling plants and we do need to keep producing and looking after the plants on the nursery at the same time. If we don‘t keep on top of these jobs then there will be no plants for sale through May.

We thank you all for your support but please be patient we can only do so much.

Plant Availability For Delivery

Update on deliveries

We apologise for all of changes we have been making but we are having to adapt on a daily basis. As it stands at the moment the shop is closed and we cannot accept collections. We know that the few that have offered are doing so to help us out, but the government have ordered that no one should leave their home except for essential journeys.

Please click here for our plants availability and prices (3 page pdf document).

We will be offering a delivery service on Wednesdays and Fridays within a 5 mile radius and with a minimum order limit of £50. If you would like to place an order please email or call although the phone will only be manned on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 11am-3pm.

It would be really helpful if you could phone prepared with what you would like to keep the length of the phone call to a minimum.

We will be closed Saturday, Sunday and Monday to give us time to catch up on growing and maintaining.

There is now an availability list on our website which will be updated weekly, please only order what is available as we do not have the space to keep orders by.

Unfortunately we cannot accept any more orders for hanging baskets. We need to honour the orders we had in before closure and need to make sure that we have enough stock for them. Once we know we hope to make for sale baskets and when they are ready they will appear on the availability list.

We are so grateful to you all for your kind words and support. We would ask though to bear with us, at present we are running everything by ourselves. And obviously we also have a 5 year old at home who has been an absolute star helping us and not complaining when we are constantly working.

Here’s hoping we get through this as stress free as possible and can’t wait to be open again to thank you all personally.

COVID-19 Update 24 March 2020

Last night the government announced that all non essential shops were to close.

We are therefore extremely sad to say that we are now closed until further notice.

This will be a complete life change for us Dean has not missed a spring season in 32 years. We will keep growing in hope that this is temporary.

If you have any gardening questions please message or email as the phone may not always be manned. We will keep in touch.

Thank you so much for all your support it means a lot and we will see you soon.

COVID-19 Update

So we’ve suffered a bit of a blow this weekend. I have come down with the most dreadful cough and absolutely exhausted. Obviously we do not know for sure whether I have Coronavirus but we cannot run the risk.

We will therefore close and self isolate for the recommended time. We will reopen on Wednesday 8th April.

Government permitting we will offer a delivery service from then on details to follow.

Thank you all for your patience and we promise we are busy behind the scenes getting everything ready for the bedding season.

All the best to you all and keep safe.
