Unpacking

Carefully remove plants from the box, check all packaging to make sure you haven’t missed any.  Most plants can be planted out immediately if the conditions are suitable, however some may need to be kept in a glasshouse or cold frame until late spring/early summer or until the risk of frost has passed. Bare-root plants can be planted immediately if conditions are suitable, if not, they can be potted up until planting is possible.

If you are not satisfied with your order please contact us immediately either by phone or email, if by email it is a good idea to send us photographs of your plants.  Keep all packaging, We will do our best to sort things out immediately.

Cut Back Plants

You will notice that some of your plants may have been cut back, there’s absolutely no need to worry. This may have been done for a number of reasons including routine maintenance or restrictions in height to get them in the box (This tends to happen more as the seasons progresses). The plants will grow away nicely and we find that they are often better than trying to leave all the foliage on during transport.  Sometimes, when a plant is in flower we will leave these on so that you can enjoy them, this is always difficult as the blooms damage very easily. If this happens just trim the plant back and, as above, it will grow away. Please keep well watered and plant out as normal. If you have any concerns do not hesitate to contact us on 01559363389.

Packaging

As you can see the environment is important to us, we have tried to remove the use of plastics all together and use only renewable, recyclable and reusable products. The straw packaging can be recycled, reused or composted, however we have noticed that in some of the straw batches there are some barley seeds left that may find a way into your pots and may germinate.  If you spot any in your pots these should  be pulled out. The packing peanuts used are bio-degradable and do not contain plastics and are made from a corn starch.
