Mail Order Delivery Details

Mail order packaging:

Mail order plants boxed and ready for despatch.
Mail order plants boxed and ready for despatch.

Plants are kept in their pots and are packed into cardboard boxes with Wood Wool which is eco-friendly, biodegradable and doesn’t get soggy.

Our packaging should protect the plants from damage in transport and with prompt unwrapping and planting out, the plants will grow away very quickly.

When plants are dispatched:

  • Orders that are received on Sunday, or before, are lifted in that same week*, we don’t want any danger of the plants having to sit around at the Couriers in their box over the weekend.
  • Orders that are received on Monday (or even Tuesday morning) can be lifted in that same week* – it would depend on the level of orders (but generally it would be delivered that same week)

When plants are received:

In practice, the orders get delivered to the customer on Wednesday or Thursday, or more unusually a Friday.

* If the weather is not suitable for planting out, then we will wait until it is suitable.
