When you place an order, the website will automatically calculate shipping on the number of plants selected.

The vast majority of parcels delivered within the United Kingdom are sent by Interlink, if provided with a mobile number or email address, Interlink can provide the useful 'predict' service, giving you an hour delivery window.

Some of our larger plants, and large orders, may need to be sent via our heavy goods haulier. These deliveries are Postcode dependent and may take up to six days from shipping. If you have any queries or concerns please don't hesitate to contact our staff, we would be happy to help.

Shipping to Europe takes a little longer - five days maximum from the date of dispatch.

Occasionally a parcel does go astray and we will promptly replace it with, hopefully, a minimum of fuss! If having the hostas really quickly is a priority then please let us know when placing your order and we will do our utmost to fulfil your request.
