Key Information

Once your order is placed, it is pre-picked and prepared for collection, or we can deliver using our own vehicles within a 50 mile radius of Chichester. Customers from further afield have their deliveries placed on external transport and usually receive their orders on Thursday or Friday. Please note, orders must be received by 16:00 on Friday for collection or delivery the following week. We charge a flat rate per delivery (currently £50.00 + VAT) which covers up to eight trollies.

Grow to Order

We have the capacity to Grow to Order (contract growing) on a shared-risk basis for customers who wish to secure their future supplies of top quality plants. Please contact us for more information (minimum order value of £8,000).
