Thank you for all your orders.

Are you still sending out orders (Autumn 2020) and what is your current delivery time

Yes we are still sending out orders via Parcelforce.

We anticipate any orders placed in Autumn October – November to have a lead time of 10- 14 week days from order – dispatch.

Thank you for your support and we will get your orders out as soon as we can If there is a delay such as the plants needing a little more growth/development we will let you know. Our full delivery details can be found here.

Can I still buy and plant plug plants (October 2020)

We have plug plants under each individual wildflower. They are gradually coming back into stock as they grow on.

We recommend planting larger numbers of plugs – our collections – in Spring/Autumn as it is cooler, they may not need as much water and there is still plenty of daylight therefore they will establish better. It is fine to plant small numbers of plug plants all year round if they can be watered as required.

When will your wildflowers come back into stock?

We  restock our wildflowers once they are ready and therefore the availability is updated online.

As a small family business we are replenishing stocks as quickly as we can, however we do not use heat to accelerate the growth of our stock. Stocks are constantly being updated as plants develop, so please check back regularly.

If you have a specific request just get in touch, and we will be happy to let you know the expected availability

Are your wildflowers UK native?

Our wildflower range of UK native wildflowers are propagated on our nursery from UK native seed stocks. We use peat free compost from seed sowing through to final potting.

We do stock a small number of wildflowers that have been introduced in the 17th /18th century and have since naturalised, but we do endeavour to mention this in the description. We grow these because we love them and our customers do too!

What is your policy on Coronovirus?

We are following the government guidelines, and although we work outdoors we still have access to wash hands, use hand sanitiser and clean tools/surfaces regularly.
We have also changed our delivery choice to a 24hour non signed for service via Parcelforce, whereas we usually opt for their signed for service.

Do you grow in peat free compost?

Yes we do – Our Wildflowers are propagated from seed in peat free compost, then transplanted into plug plant trays in peat free compost and grown on into pots with peat free compost too! Each of theses stages is a manual process and not mechanical, so we can visually assess each plant through it’s life cycle.

Are you organic and how do you control pests?

Although not certified as Organic, we aim to work with nature and be aware of environmental sustainability. In this respect we use organic pest control, as prevention and control, such as using a soap based spray. We also leave the natural biodiversity of the nursery and our rural surroundings to balance pest control within our ecosystem.

How large are your plug plants?

Our plug plants are sold in groups of 6 and each plug plant is a square 59ml plug. Our collections are sold as trays of 54 or 108 plug plants.

What type of pots do you use?

In 2020 we are pleased to be implementing Kerbside recyclable pots into our 9cm pot range, which are round and Taupe in colour. We aim to continue this move with the 1 litre and 2 litre pots too as the season progresses.

How many wildflower plants should I plant and when can I plant?

We recommend 6 plug plants / m2 and 3 pots /m2 . They can be planted anytime the ground isn’t frozen or waterlogged, although the best time for planting depending on location will be March – October. Wildflowers are generally perennial and hardy.

When can I expect my plants if some of the order is on back order?

We would usually send the whole order together once the back ordered plants are ready. We do not usually send a split delivery.

Do you let let me know when my order will be delivered?

We send an email when the order leaves our nursery and you will receive a text from Parcelforce on the day of delivery.

Please do add a mobile number at checkout so you receive the text update from Parcelforce. They will advise you of their expected delivery window which is an hourly slot. There is also the option to redirect the delivery to a local post office, a neighbour or to change the day.

How do you package your plants when shipping?

We carefully package our plants for transport, being as eco friendly as possible. We use local hay and recycled cardboard as much as we can so an order will arrive to your door in the best condition, within 24 -48 hours of leaving our nursery.

I would like to buy a gift, how much is the postage ?

When gifts are purchased alone, they are sent via Royal mail and postage is £4.50.

When purchased with plants, they are sent via courier and our standard postage charges apply.

How do I register for an account?

There are several ways to register; either before shopping using the mini person icon next to the shopping cart, where you create an account, or at checkout. Registering will allow you to monitor your order or order history and it will be quicker to check out too.
However you can just checkout as a guest.

Can I buy a gift voucher?

Yes you can! We have an e gift card available in our shop. There are a range of values for the gift card you can buy which will be sent to you by email.
