Often we have much more interesting varieties. As a smaller nursery we can afford to do more interesting or less efficient crop plants. Such as cornflowers, night scented stock,double pansies, etc. Smaller production means better plants wider choice and more bio diversity.
Many plants are disappearing as larger nurseries cant grow them efficiently
We never sell rent, or exploit your email address to any third party.

Shipping is done by mail or courier.
If you are buying more then 3 plants the courier is the best method and cheapest. In fact you can buy about 12 -15 large plants for the same shipping cost.
Very large items are always sent separately.
For example if you buy 3 golden princess spirea and 4 coreopsis and on large 20 litre rhododendron then you will be charged two shipping charges. One for the smaller plants combines and one for the large plant. We will tell you when this applies so don't worry you will know before you buy.
We ship on mondays only. This is for your benefit. If your in a hurry let us know we can ship faster sometimes. We ship on Mondays to make sure the plants are ready and the weather is not to cold or to hot.
When your order is made and you complete checkout, We will then pull your Items from the nursery stock and move them to a holding area. This is where we inspect them roots and all of the plants to make sure only perfect plants go out.
They are then de potted and left to dry off a bit. Then wrapped and packed. They are shipped first thing next morning.
When you receive the plants do not put them in full sun. Open the box un wrap and put outside in light shade for a day or two. But plant them quickly or repot them. Make sure they don't dry out.
We can hold orders until your ready, providing we have been paid for up to 6 weeks.

Why the ads on some of the pages?
Well those articles are for information and some people find them useful and informative. They might not be in the market for buying a plant how ever, so we have monitised some pages this way to offset our traffic, bandwidth, and hosting costs. These articles generate a lot of visits from countries that we cant ship to. They may also carry Ads that are useful and relevant to your situation perhaps providing services that we don't. Either way We have to pay to servepages to them. They are course Welcome. We love wirting articles.
