I AM PLEASED TO OFFER DISCOUNTED PRICES ON LARGER QUANTITIES OF PLANTS.

I supply to Universities, National Trust and RHS in addition to many large estates and garden attractions and am often asked for prices for large planting schemes, which I am pleased to do.

Prices for x 3 and x 10 plants are generally shown on the main listings and these include VAT at the prevailing rate, currently 20%. If you are VAT registered you can reclaim this portion. These prices generally allow a discount on bare root plants of roughly 10% and 15% respectively. I generally do not apply further blanket discounts on whole orders, since the postage cap itself results in a further discount of around 10% on large orders of mostly potted plants; clearly I cannot send several hundred pounds’ worth of plants for £9.90. I offer the best price I can while maintaining my reputation for quality and service. Potted plants are discounted less, since a large part of the cost is fixed, the plant itself representing less than half the cost of 1 litre pots. In 2022 I will be launching a range of full box potted deals for many native plants commonly purchased in larger quantities for landscaping schemes, these can be found under the main plant listing. P9 pots will be in x24 and 1 litre pots in x15 orders only.

CLEARANCE OFFERS JULY 2022 – PLEASE CONTACT US BY EMAIL IF YOU WISH TO PURCHASE ANY OF THE FOLLOWING:

Acorus calamus variegatus bare root x 100 £150.00

Caltha palustris bare root and P9, further discounts for 24+

Caltha palustris var palustris, great for larger ponds, 1 litre pots x 15 for £69.90

Iris louisiana clearance – up to 1000 mixed varieties available at just 90p each in x 100. Great semi-evergreen fillers.

Pontederia alba – big plants, further discounts for 24+

Typha all reduced inc T angustifolia, gracilis, latifolia

3 litre potted water lilies up to 50% off single list price for 10+ collected, many varieties available.

 

MASSIVE DISCOUNTS (That got your attention, didn’t it?!) …..are never likely to be offered. We produce high quality plants with an excellent service and as a small specialist producer our margins are very modest. We’re not like kitchen and furniture companies that first double the price and then pretend to give 50% discount. Further discounts are sometimes available at x50 and x250 levels for the more common native plants and I can offer the best prices for forward orders. I keep large stocks of the more common plants but some notice may be required for very large numbers. I can offer the best prices for big orders in late Winter/early Spring, since this is when we do most of our splitting and propagation; once plants have been divided and replanted the labour has had to be paid for regardless of how long they have been growing in their new locations. The longer notice I have, the better price I can usually offer. Rare and unusual plants are not available in large quantities and are not discounted beyond the website prices.

For orders valued at £1000.00 and above please contact me for an individual quotation without obligation. Postage and packing on large trade orders priced individually will not be charged at the rates shown on the ordering page but will be specifically quoted for. I promise that I do not make any margin on carriage of plants but just charge the actual cost of box and postage/carrier.

A suggested list of plants can normally be supplied free of charge if I am supplied with a section and plan of the planting area, photos are extremely useful too. This sort of work is necessarily done when I am not too busy with sales, so may take some time to produce.

Complete planting plans can be produced outside of our busiest period, which is March to June, and there is a charge for this, please enquire.

Breeders mixes are seed grown plants of the stated species or genus and will comprise a good variety of different colours and/or forms. They represent an economical way to plant up larger areas with an interesting variety. Lost label plants are similar and include a variety of species and hybrids from the stated genus. These latter are only generally available out of flowering season, as once they flower I can label them correctly and charge appropriately for them!

 

I regret that I am not a wholesaler and cannot offer a regular delivery service to shops and garden centres. My plants are sold on the basis that the customer is the end user and as a result I have elected not to join the Plant Passporting scheme, which is a monumental waste of time and money creating a huge amount of extra paperwork and nuisance. I therefore am not authorised to issue plant passports. However, you can order from me to send direct to your customer. I am registered with the Animal and Plant Health Authority number 129111. I am also registered with PEACH and my VAT registration number is 364158489.

What Our Customers Say

Mr T G 22nd May 2020

Plants arrived today. All fantastic. Indeed, so much so I’ll send you a picture tomorrow of the contrast between your plants and two I ordered via a well-known nursery. The comparison is shocking. I was having difficulty finding this particular variety. I’m a full-on gardener, in whatever time I get free and I’ll certainly check out your web page to see if you stock what I’m looking for from now on.
Many thanks

Ms J N 5th March 2020

Ten very healthy Primula pulverulenta plants have just arrived. What an excellent service, thank you very much.

Mrs FR June 2016

I received the plants safe and sound today and looking well. I have planted them and in some cases was able to split them thanks to your generosity. I am sure they will do well and enhance our new garden.

Mr AM 09.04.19

Hi David,

My plant order arrived today and the package was placed behind the wheelie bins, as requested. I usually request that parcels be left there so as not to have my neighbours bothered.

The parcel was unpacked and I’m delighted with the plants you have sent, both in beautiful condition and looking sturdy…thank you. I will definitely be ordering from you again.
