To help ensure your parcel reaches you as easily as possible, please could you also fill in the "Special instructions" box with any further information you feel our courier may need - e.g Our house is down a small lane on the left hand side of "The Old Thirteenth Cheshire Astley Volunteer Rifleman Corps Inn" and is not visible or signposted from the road. 


Plant availability and packing information.

Please be aware that your plants will arrive cut back. This does not harm your plant, in fact it aids better establishment of the plants whilst helping increase root and shoot growth once your plant is in the ground - this is horticultural good practice. To help you we include basic planting instructions with your order.

At times throughout the growing year some varieties of plants will only be available from the Nursery. This is either due to the plant being too large or too delicate to send via Mail Order courier or due to low stock numbers. To avoid disappointment we would advise emailing or ringing the Nursery to reserve your plants before travelling a long distance to the Nursery. Contact us and we will do our best to help you. Alternatively we can deliver plants via Flower Shows at no additional cost. Please see our Shows & Events page.

Click and Collect from the nursery shop.

If you are in our area and would like to collect your rather than have it delivered you can convert your order to "Click and Collect".  You will find that some plants listed on the website are only available via 'Click and Collect'. As stated above this enables us to include plants that we only ever have in very small quantities or plants which are either just too delicate or too large to send via mail order courier, and allows customers who intend to visit the nursery to reserve them in advance. This also currently applies to MELCOURT SYLVAGROW® Compost and the ARS 300L Pointed Fruit Pruner listed under the Gifts & Sundries Section.
