We sell our plants in the following sizes, Bare Root, 9cm pots, 1.5L pots and 2L pots. Bare root plants are only available through late winter and early spring. With our containerised plants our aim is to provide you with fully rooted garden-ready, instant impact plants. This means that, within two weeks of planting, they should be growing steadily, filling in any gaps you have in your borders. (Please note this may vary depending on the time of year and the variety you purchase).
PBR (Plant Breeders Rights)
In short, this means the plant is licensed to the original breeder of a cultivar. When the plant is sold, a royalty is paid back to the plant breeder, much like that of a singer when their song is played on the radio. This explains why some varieties seem so much more expensive than others. You are entitled to divide and replant a PBR plant that you have in your garden, but you are prohibited from selling and profiting from those divisions.
Your plants will be a packaged in a recyclable or compostable cardboard box. Bare Roots will be clearly labelled and securely packaged in paper bags. Containerised plants will be sent in their pots. We send the plants in their pots as it helps to protect the all important crown and roots while in transit, it also means that if you are unable to plant out your new plants immediately they will have some protection from the elements.
The plant pots will be wrapped individually in a single polythene bag to prevent any excess moisture soaking the packaging, we will soon be transitioning to compostable bags for this purpose.
We use a very strong durable cross weave tape to secure the boxes and plants for their journey. We hope to begin using a string/paper equivalent soon.

Bare Root Plants
Sometimes referred to as open ground, the term refers to the fact that the plant being sent will be without soil or a pot.
There are many advantages to buying and selling plants this way. The most obvious is the reduction in packaging, especially parts of packaging that most councils cannot currently recycle. Sending plants without soil also reduces the weight of the parcel, thus reducing the CO2 produced by our courier while your parcel is in transit. There is also a reduced risk of weed seed and pest transference.
The only slight draw back is that it may take your plant a little bit longer to get going but by following the aftercare advice supplied with your purchase your plants will soon catch up.

We regret we can no longer ship to Non-Mainland UK addresses.
Unfortunately due to all the changes brought about by Brexit, we regret that we will no longer be able to dispatch to addresses in Northern Ireland, Channel Islands, Isle of Man, Scilly Isles or Europe. Plant Health Inspections and phytosanitary certificates are now required for each consignment, the cost of this is approximately £150 per order.
