When confirmation of your order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.

Shipping And Handling: Plant orders and large plug orders are sent out using a 24 hour carrier. Small plug orders are sent using Royal Mail First class.

Deliveries by carrier are sent as ‘Signature Optional’. This does not require you to be at home for the delivery. However, it is important to type delivery instructions when you reach the checkout telling us and the carrier of a safe place to leave the plants.

We endeavour to send out orders within 4 working days of ordering. Delays can occasionlly occur if we experience an exceptionally busy week or during bad weather. Such delays are reported on the delivery page.

Delivery dispatch days-
We send plants Mon, Tues, Wed and Thurs. We do not send out on a Friday unless you choose the Saturday delivery option. When you receive your order dispatch notification, you can usually expect the plants to arrive the following day.

Specific delivery times-
We can time your delivery to arrive on a specific day (with exception of Sunday and Monday).This is ideal if you are buying a gift.

Delivery Schedule: Plant orders and large plug orders are sent out using a 24 hour carrier. Small plug orders are sent using Royal Mail First class.

Deliveries by carrier are sent as ‘Signature Optional’. This does not require you to be at home to except the order but it is useful to include a safe place for the plants to be left. If the driver doesn’t have these instructions, there is no-one home and doesn’t feel there is a safe place they can be left, the parcel will be taken back to the depot and a card or email left.

We endeavor to send out orders within 3 working days of ordering. Delays can occur if we have a busy week (when we exhibit at shows) or during bad weather. Such delays are reported on our homepage at the time.
For orders recieved on a Wednesday, we will aim to deliver the same week but if we are unable to, we will let you know.

Delivery days.
We send plants on Mon, Tues, Wed and Thurs. We do not send out on a Friday unless you contact us for a Saturday delivery. We don’t like plants being left in a depot over the weekend!

Specific delivery times
We can time your delivery to arrive on a specific day (with exception of Sunday and Monday).This is ideal if you buying a gift. Saturday delivery is possible but please contact us first.

Back Orders: We grow plants on the nursery so they are not ordered in. Therefore, all items shown as in stock should be on the nursery ready to send. However, we are open to the public and we do send plants out Wholesale. Therefore, if you do wish to order a lot of one item, it may be an idea to email us first.

If we do make an error with stock control, we will always arrange something with you – thankfully this very rarely happens!

Tax Charges: Herb Plants and Herb Plug Plants which are not predominately culinary plants attract VATt at the standard rate (20%). This has been included in the price of your plants where applicable but will be shown, for tax purposes, in detail on the checkout page and invoice.

Bay Trees grown in pots smaller than 3L are also classed as zero-rated culinary plants. Larger specimens are considered decorative plants and are therefore subject to VAT

Credit Card Security: We use a choice of Payment Service Providers (PSPs), SagePay and PayPal. These are by far the most safe way of capturing payments. No Credit Card details are saved on any of our systems. The only information we see is your order details which comprise of the herbs chosen and your contact details.

We are ourselves PCI-DSS Compliant

Guarantee: We wish to provide customers with quality plants and service. Every effort will be made to ensure that plants are true to name and in perfect condition when leaving the nursery. Please examine your delivery carefully and report any problems by telephone within 24hours, followed by a letter within seven days. Our liability for plants supplied is limited, at our option, to the replacement of those plants or a refund of the price paid. We regret that we cannot accept liabilty beyond 24 hours from delivery date for plants that fail to thrive due to unsuitable care, neglect, adverse weather conditions or other causes beyond our control. Please view the returns policy details

Flowering herbs: During the year, flowering plants are trimmed to make for a healthy plant. Sometimes this is done after flowering and sometimes during, to make a plant sturdier for a healthier transition to the garden or to make it easier to transport. Example: A flowering Salvia is often trimmed back in Auguest, September due to 1. to make a stocky plant to get through the winter and 2. makes it possible to pack in a box. If you are purchasing plants for immediate flower (wedding or photo-shoot especially later in the season) please contact us first.
Some perennial plants may not flower in their first year. Examples include seed grown perennials which have germinated in the late spring and summer may not flower to the next season and also Lavender plants that should be discouraged from first season flowering.

Photographs: We try and give an accurate pictorial representation of and where possible, how the plant will look once established. We do try and avoid product photos showing potted plants plants as this changes throughout the year. We tend to give an example image showing the pot size. If you require photos of the plants of how they will look at the time of order, do not hesitate to ask.

Plant descriptions and labeling: All plant descriptions are our own with the exception of a minority of labels. Height guides etc are given as an average for UK conditions after much research and own experience. Soil type, aspect, pH etc will effect the growth habit.

Peat: We have been phasing out the use of peat over the last 3 years. We are in 2018, considered ‘Peat Reduced’. Propagation may be carried out in peat but potting on is in peat reduced compost which comprises of wood fibre, loam and peat. In 2019, we hope to remove this peat component so our potting media will be 100% peat free. We will update this page once this process is complete but it will take time and until over-wintered plants grown in 2018 compost are sold. It is commercially known that Peat is best at propagation level and we will still use a certain quantity. However as quantity is negligible as a percentage in a grown plant, the industry widely accepts that as long as a cutting or seedling is potted on into peat free media, this grown plant is considered Peat Free. If you have any questions regarding the topic of our compost, please contact us.
