Plants and flowers by post:
Here at Boundary Nursery, our aim is to only send you good quality plants of the highest quality.
The majority of our plants are offered in two sizes in 9cm pots or the larger 11cm pot.
The reality is that a plant in a 9cm pot is only about a month of growing time behind a plant in a 11cm or a couple of months behind a 2 litre pot.
Our plants will grow away quickly in warm weather and with enough moisture.
An example of our 9cm plants
The plants offered are available throughout the year SUBJECT TO WEATHER CONDITIONS and whilst stocks last.
This is an on-line mail order catalogue which means that it is not a live stock list, and at times there may be a ‘blip’ in the plants availability.
Also some plants can only be offered in limited quantities due to being rare, difficult to propagate, etc.
Whilst others, due to their own requirements, can only be offered at certain times – please see our list for these.
We hope you will enjoy looking through our comprehensive catalogue of plants by post.
The care of your new plants:
Remember that in sunny weather, the plant roots will not be very far down into the soil and will be relying on you to supply it’s water requirements.
But be aware, if the soil remains too wet every day, then that could cause the roots to suffer.
