For full details please go to the Nuts & Bolts button. Large orders may be sent in multiple packages. Mainland Great Britain only at the moment I'm afraid, anywhere else by request.
Not all plants are available for mail order (they may be the wrong size or out of stock or too low in numbers) but can still be on sale at the nursery. No minimum order. Any queries please do ask us as we try to be as transparent as possible.

EXPLANATION

USDA zones are zones of average minimum winter temperatures, e.g. zone 7 or less on a plant means it is hardy pretty well anywhere in the UK, zone 8 is still hardy but some plants may need some winter protection in areas of severe cold or exposure, zone 9 plants will need some winter protection unless in an urban or coastal situation, and zone 10 needs bringing indoors
