How will my plants and trees be delivered to me?
All deliveries are by courier and will be contactless during the Covid-19 crisis. All plants and trees are picked by our expert team and delivered to you in specially designed and very robust packaging. We guarantee your plants and trees will reach you in perfect condition all ready for planting.
How much does delivery cost?

Do you grow the plants you sell on your website?
The vast majority of the plants, trees and hedging we sell are grown and cared for on our own five-acre nursery here in Norfolk. We have a fantastic team of expert horticulturists who ensure all our plants are well cared for and in the best of health when picked and packed for your order. Once they reach you our plants have a 100% survival rate if correctly cared for.
Why do you sell polytunnels?
With such a large nursery and the thousands of plants and trees we sell we need the best possible protection for them as well as perfect growing conditions. But we couldn’t find polytunnels of a high enough quality so began making our own. We then decided to offer our commercial grade tunnels to professional growers and all our other customers.
We are now one of the biggest sellers of polytunnels in the UK. We manufacture all our polytunnels in our own workshops and they can now be found in gardens, small holdings, allotments, farms and nurseries throughout the country.
What methods of payment do you accept?
We accept all credit cards and you also have the option of paying by PayPal. For order values of over £99 you can choose to pay by PayPal Credit and (subject to status) spread the cost of your purchase over four monthly payments.
