Delivery Information

Post & Packaging Rates


We have currently suspended despatches to all countries outside of the UK (N.I. orders are being despatched under a two-day service, as normal). Under current conditions, all orders for plant material require a phytosanitary certificate, which can cost £50+ per consignment.  Our couriers are also not taking plant material into european countries (including EU countries). We have taken the decision to therefore suspend orders while we seek greater clarity from our couriers and DEFRA. 

Important Update to UK Deliveries: Our couriers (DPD) have recently advised us of changes to the way certain Scottish destinations are classified for charging purposes, and we have, reluctantly, had to update our charges for these locations, which are listed below.   However, as in all cases where the postage is shown at a higher rate than our UK £4.95, we always weigh each package when packed and if we can send for a lower cost (i.e. using Royal Mail for smaller packages), we will advise you before taking any money.  If you have any questions, please email or telephone us.

Alternatively, place your order and use the 'Pay by Phone' option, then telephone us and we can review the P&P charge and make any appropriate changes to the cost.

  • Mainland UK:- £4.95 (incl VAT) includes all UK postcodes except the following; Scottish Highlands (AB30-38, AB44-56, FK17-99, G83, IV1-28, IV30-39, IV52-54, IV63, KW1-14, PA21-33, PA34-40, PH18-26, PH30, PH31-41, PH49-50), Scottish Islands (HS1-9, IV40-51, IV55-56, KA27-28, KW15-17, PA20, PA41-49, PA60-78, PH42-44, ZE1-3), Channel Islands (GY & JE), Isle of Man (IM), Isle of Wight (PO30-41), Scilly Isles (TR21-25), Northern Ireland (Postcodes BT1-BT94, see below), Republic of Ireland (see below)
  • Costs for exceptions listed above (UK non-Mainland postcodes); Orders will automatically have the appropriate P&P applied, but as described earlier, orders will be weighed and if we can ship for a lower amount, we will advise you. If accepted, the total amount will be debited to their card and the package despatched.   We do not take any money until your order has been packed and where appropriate, you have agreed the P&P charge.
  • We ship to both Northern Ireland using 'DPD'.   The cost is £21.50 for up to 10Kg, which is about 15-17 packs of 3 dahlia tubers or 250-300 tulip bulbs, so the bigger your order, the better value.  All  orders will have this charge built in automatically - see below.
  • Both lower (under 2Kg) and higher weights can be accommodated to all the above destinations  – please contact us for exact pricing details.  If your package is small and can be sent by a cheaper method, we always offer that option before we take the money and despatch.
