Something a little bit different
As well as our festive favourites we have some lovely unusual gift ideas for 2022
This Christmas is likely to be another busy one and with so many people choosing to shop online we do recommend that you place your orders in advance and choose a delivery date of the 19th, 20th, 21st or 22nd December (if you can) to avoid the rush. You can browse and reserve plants from our Christmas selection here
Need to check with someone else or just need a little more time to decide? Don't worry we will be taking orders right up until Friday 23rd December for Christmas delivery. We do expect some of our most popular lines to have sold out by then but the website will be updated round the clock to ensure that what you see is what's available.
Because we specialise in plants as gifts, the plants available on our website are usually looking fantastic and currently in season. You'll notice that a lot of our Christmas plants have a 'order from' date, that's because a lot of our Christmas plants are grown to order for us and are due to arrive at the nursery when they are at their best.
You can choose delivery on the first available delivery date or any date to suit you after this. If you are looking for gifts that are looking good for delivery this week, check out our recommended page here or of course you are welcome to give us a call in office hours and we can advise you on the best plant for a particular position or person.
