Privacy policy:

We do not store credit card details nor do we share customer details with any 3rd parties.

Delivery policy:

Delivery to your address is covered by our Delivery terms (see plants, seed and publications  order forms for rates and details of where we deliver), despatch normally being by overnight carrier (TNT) or or by post for smaller parcels.  In all cases, carriage is at the Purchaser’s risk.  The delivery amount is normally specified before you complete the order (except for overseas plant orders for which we will quote a price).
For most orders we aim to despatch within 5 working days. We will let you know immediately if delivery is likely to be beyond this timescale and you have the right to cancel the order for a full refund at this point.

Returns and cancellation policy

We believe that all goods are supplied in good conditions and of reliable quality.  We will not be responsible for the health and welfare of plants and seeds after acceptance of delivery nor will we be responsible for the replacement of any seed or plant which fails to grow due to unsuitable soil conditions, adverse weather, damage, neglect or any other cause beyond our control.
In the event of any error of ours in making up a consignment, please notify us immediately and confirm in writing within 7 days, when the matter will be put right either by a further despatch or by a refund of your payment.  If you have any query or complaint about goods, let us know promptly, for we cannot be responsible for failures occurring weeks or months later, by which time so many circumstances beyond our control or knowledge are likely to have had a bearing on the matter.
If an order is cancelled before 1st November in the autumn/winter season the order is made, then a full refund will be made. Late cancellations after 1st November will receive an 80% refund to cover the cost of plants we cannot sell. Orders cannot be cancelled after they have been despatched.
