We’ve been experiencing a high volume of mail orders lately, many of which are in the £10 carriage charge band. These parcels have to be taken to our rural Post Office, and we find ourselves having to visit several times per week to keep up with the backlog, something we shouldn’t be doing so often, during lockdown.
We regret, therefore, that for the time being, we will only be able to fulfil orders that can be collected from the nursery by courier. Minimum charge by courier is £15.00.
This covers from 12-30 x 9cm plants (boxes need to be this size min.) and is a Next Day service, which is important as temperature rises.
Please contact us for a competitive carriage price for larger orders. Once again, we regret having to take this action, and we thank you for your valued support and understanding. Happy Easter, stay well, everyone.

It’s a difficult time for everyone just now, plant-lovers, and small businesses included. Our shows and meetups are cancelled and we can’t get to pursue the interest we all love as a community together, but we can still, thankfully, take solace in our own gardens and enjoy them safely ourselves.
Because we can’t meet at shows and talks, we can happily arrange to post plants to you, or, we can leave your order to be collected at the Nursery gate.
We’ve also added a searchable catalogue on the website to make it easier to find the plants you’re looking for.
Just email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01577 840160 and we can discuss your requirements.
Stay safe everyone and happy gardening!

Graeme gave a propagation workshop recently at St Andrews Botanic Garden, covering the taking of hardwood cuttings, and division of woodland plants.
Allium beesianum, in foreground, with Azorella trifurcata, and Astilbe ‘Inshriach Pink’, in background. Three plants that complement one another well.
We had a nice visit from The Beechgrove Garden at the beginning of May and Carole Baxter had a chat with Graeme about his Auricula hybridisation.
It aired on Episode 7, on the 14th May 2015, we’re just after 20 minutes in.
Here’s the link on iPlayer.
See if you can spot Momo by the gate!
