What We Send
Our mail order team are always at pains to pack plants carefully so they arrive in the best condition. We take off most of the soil, gently wrap the roots to keep the moisture in and then enclose in good quality newspaper, each plant clearly labelled.
Most hostas are from 1 litre pots, sometimes smaller for the miniature or very new varieties. We do not send plugs.
Some hostas we keep in the cooler and send out with no apparent growth even when hostas in the garden are in full leaf. These will soon come into fresh, new leaf when planted out. In warm weather, a couple of weeks should be long enough to see growth occurring.
We then box your order and send via Royal Mail first class post, or Interlink.
We have sent hostas all over the world in this way for over 20 years and it works very well.
Hostas are normally shipped on Wednesdays, except for the Christmas break from December 20 to January 5 when the nursery is closed.
If you wish to send plants as a present, we are, of course, happy to send the parcel directly to another address for you.
