Plants

The online plant list for 2017/18 is now live!

Spring of 2017 has proved challenging, with warm weather in March followed by exceptionally late frosts in late April / early May which damaged many plants. However we have our usual large range including some new introductions (see below).

Deliveries of plants can be anywhere in the EU this season and the following 2018/19 season. After that … who knows if we will still be able to send plants to other parts of Europe outside the UK.

NEW PLANTS JUST ADDED:

CHINESE DATES (Ziziphus)

HYBRID PERSIMMONS – Nikitas Gift, Russian Beauty

GAULTHERIA SHALLON

ASIAN PEARS Shinsui & Shinseiki

Plants from our nursery are sent out from November until mid March.

Plant delivery charges

Delivery: We send plants out in the dormant season: the majority of our plants are field grown and sold bare-rooted, which is more ecologically-sound than growing everything in pots.
On ordering, your order will go into a queue for delivery between November and March – we’ll give you an estimate of delivery period. We can only send to “proper” postcoded addresses – not to fields, gateways, parks etc. Most UK orders will be sent by carrier although we cannot guarantee either the day or time of delivery – if you are not in then the plants will be left somewhere safe. It is essential we are given a telephone number to pass onto the courier so they can contact you if necessary.
Cancellation of plant orders: Please note, that after November 1st, plant orders that are cancelled will receive an 80% refund. This is because the plants have been reserved for you and it is increasingly likely as the winter season progresses that we will be unable to re-sell the plants hence we will entail losses on the order.
Delivery charges:
It costs us the same to send one tree or ten, and most couriers do not want to transport either plants or long parcels. We now use Tuffnells who are experienced in handling both plants and long items.
Basic delivery charge for most of mainland England, Wales, lowland Scotland: 12.5% of order value (minimum delivery charge £21.00)
If you only want a few small plants a small delivery rate may apply – please email us for a postage quote.

Surcharges (add to basic delivery charge):
Channel Islands + £15.00; Isle of Man + £15.00; Isle of Wight + £7.00; Northern Ireland + £5.00; Scottish Highlands* + £20.00; Scottish Islands & Scilly Isles** + £20.00; remote/congested area surcharge +£3.00.

European delivery charges
Note: we send out plants with a ‘plant passport’ which enables them to be sent anywhere in the EU. We do not send plants outside of the EU apart from to Switzerland (so not to Norway, sorry). We have “fireblight buffer zone status” and thus are able to send apples, pears, hawthorns, medlars etc. to areas and countries free of fireblight.
The charges below for Zones A-E are examples per 10 kg carton (up to 20 x 20 x 200 cm) – approx 10 bare rooted fruit trees. Pot grown plants will be heavier. A delivery price based on weight will be calculated automatically if you order online. Orders to mainland Europe are sent by courier.
Deliveries usually take 2-7 days from despatch and if you are not in the plants will be left somewhere safe. It is essential we are given a telephone number to pass onto the courier so they can contact you if necessary.
We only send plants within the UK / EU and Switzerland.

Zone 0 – Republic of Ireland: £40 up to order value of £160, thereafter £40 + 12.5% of order value over £160
Zone A – Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Netherlands: First carton £40.00, subsequent cartons £22.00 each.
Zone B – Austria, Denmark, Italy, Spain: First carton £48.00, subsequent cartons £24.00 each.
Zone C – Czech Rep, Finland, Poland, Portugal, Sweden: First carton £56.00, subsequent cartons £28.00 each.
Zone D – Bulgaria, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Slovak Rep., Switzerland: First carton £72.00, subsequent cartons £30.00 each.
Zone E – Croatia, Cyprus, Greece (mainland), Malta, Romania, Slovenia: First carton £85.00, subsequent cartons £40.00 each.

A note on fireblight buffer zone status
This status allows a nursery like ours to send plants which are susceptible to the disease fireblight to countries and regions free of the disease. Our nursery now has this status, meaning we can send Apples, pears, quinces, juneberries etc. to fireblight free zones in Europe (N.Ireland, Channel Islands, Isle of Man, Corsica, Estonia, Finland, Italy, Latvia, Portugal and Spain.)

“I am delighted with the plants hence this thank you note. They seem so refreshingly vibrant and well-established compared to the hastily-potted specimens one often comes across in this day and age. The packaging was easy to deal with and to recycle and I appreciate the care taken in your instructions re delivery. Many thanks again for your care and attention – it is very much appreciated.” EL

“The raspberries I bought from you last year are busy throwing up lots and lots of new canes. I’m absolutely delighted as I’d previously bought three bundles of raspberries from a garden centre over a period of 3 years, and they all failed miserably. Thank you so much for supplying such strong and healthy canes.” CB

“I never got a chance to mail and say thank you for my recent delivery. Everything arrived safe and sound (it was all very well packed). Quality of the plants was extremely high!“ CH

“The plants we bought of you last year were way beyond all others we have bought in terms of strength and health. Keep up the good work.” MS

“Thanks ART for the great trees and fungal preparation I/we bought last autumn, nearly everything has taken.” MK

“Just a thank you for supplying such healthy young trees. They are all growing away beautifully and are in full leaf despite the rather curious spring /summer.” CF

“Just to say thank you very much, the plants arrived yesterday and are in the ground! All nice specimens and well packed, thanks. ” JB

“Many thanks for the lovely plants you sent that arrived today. They are already installed in their prepared places and are looking great. Excellent quality.” MP
