Are you ready?
Please let us know when you are ready to for us to order your gifts. This may be as soon as you return from your honeymoon - or sometime much later. Many couples choose to wait if their garden is not ready for planting, which is fine with us. The only point to note is that, if the delay is over a year there will possibly be some price increases.
We suggest you consider the following before deciding to take delivery of your plants.
- is the garden really ready?
- is it a good time of year to plant? A hot summer is not!
- have you got time to complete the planting and please don't forget the watering over the following few weeks?
We suggest waiting if the answer is not yes to all of these as your plants will be happier living in the nursery than sitting in a windswept, dry corner feeling unloved!
If so, this is what to expect:
- once you give us the go ahead you should allow at least
- two to three weeks for orders to be processed, especially in Spring time
- normally plants will arrive either by post or courier and they will need signing for
- deliveries are during the week so if you are not going to be at home please tell us where to leave them safely and details of alternative signing arrangements
- unless your list was very small, plants usually come from different nurseries (shrubs, perennials, roses etc.)
- whilst we will try to arrange for all deliveries to arrive on the same day, experience tells us that this is not guaranteed - however we will do our very best to keep you informed
- some plants (bulbs and bare-root roses and trees for instance) will always come in the winter
- for your convenience we give the nurseries your telephone number so that they too can keep you updated
- if you discover that something is missing or damaged please tell us immediately
Once everything has been delivered please let us know. We will do our utmost to made the delivery of your gifts as straight forward as possible but please be aware that it is sometimes quite tricky co-ordinating everything and there may be a few suprises!
