We always do our best to dispatch your plants to you as soon as possible. Our current estimate is within 7-10 working days. Unfortunately, we are not currently able to deliver outside the UK or to Northern Ireland due to increased costs and delays at the ports.
We guarantee that all plants shown on our web site are currently available.
We only sell pond plants that are totally hardy and are not harmed by the pond freezing.
We grow all of our plants outside, so they can be planted into your pond as soon as they arrive, whatever the season.
Pond plants need room to grow, so all our plants are supplied bare-rooted with good foliage and root growth for the time of year and are ready to pot on. Any plants in small pots that you may buy from other suppliers must be re-potted immediately to give them room to grow.
Our water lilies are grown in 1lt pots, most marginals are grown in 9 or 11cm pots, oxygenating plants are supplied in bunches.
The plants you order will be lifted and prepared on the morning of dispatch.

Please note that our nursery is not open to the public.
As all plants are lifted for each individual order, we ask for payment before we dispatch.
We normally ask for payment with your order placed through the shop on our web site. If you have any problems in navigating the payment section, please do call us on 01684 310950 and we will call you back as soon as we can. Please note that we are usually working outside in the nursery so you may need to leave a message with your contact details on our answerphone.
All payments are through PayPal’s secure online system where you can pay directly from you PayPay account or by debit or credit card. We do not accept payment by American Express.
For larger or more complex orders we will provide a pro forma invoice showing our bank details and invite you to pay by BACS.
Unfortunately, delivery outside the UK is currently not feasible for pond plants due to increased delays at the ports.
Our standard delivery charge per order is £8.50 to anywhere within the UK and Channel Islands.
We always aim to deliver your plants to you as soon as possible. As most deliveries are made through Royal Mail, who do not guarantee next day delivery, we have had to extend our delivery estimate to 10 days from receipt of order. We dispatch on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays to avoid plants being stuck in a sorting office over the weekend. The only time that this may not be possible is during the winter months when adverse weather conditions may result in delay.
Smaller orders of plants are usually dispatched via Royal Mail First Class Post. Large orders are shipped by Parcel Force courier service. Delivery to Highlands, Islands may take an extra day or two. Orders sent via Parcel Force can be tracked at http://www.parcelforce.com/help-and-advice/tracking using the tracking number. If you would like the tracking number please let us know and we will email it to you when we have dispatched your order.
Plant varieties are individually packed in plastic bags and can be kept in shade for a few days without deterioration. All cartons are marked “Urgent! Live Plants” and with your own specific delivery instructions (if given). If you don’t give us any instructions we mark the carton “Please leave by front door”.
A signature is not required for Royal Mail First Class Post but is required by Parcel Force, so we will always let you know when we dispatch your order who will be delivering to you.
If you have any particular delivery requirements, please contact us directly and we will do our best to accommodate you.
We guarantee that all our plants are true to name and healthy at the time of dispatch.
