We aim to dispatch all of our orders within 48 hours of acceptance, unless otherwise requested by the customer. We use a trusted and reliable courier providing next day delivery for mainland orders and 2 days for Highlands and Islands,

As it is important that live plants are not damaged by being held in transit over the weekend, mainland orders are dispatched Monday – Thursday and Monday – Wednesday for Highlands and Islands (excepting Bank Holiday Mondays).


Your order should be delivered within the timescale detailed above. You will be asked to sign for it, unless you have left instructions to the contrary when you placed your order. In any case goods should be inspected on receipt. If the packaged is damaged on arrival this must be stated when you sign for it. Carefully unwrap your plant, give it a little water and keep out of direct wind or harsh sunlight for 24 hours.


We operate a no quibble guarantee. If for any reason you are not happy with your purchase, you may return it to us for a full refund. If your purchase is damaged on arrival, please call or email us as soon as possible. It would be helpful if you could email a photograph of the damaged goods.
