Pip's Top Tip

Always water plants for the garden well before planting. A prolonged soak in a bucket of water is the best way to prepare hardy plant before planting.

Found something you love, but can’t fit it in to your car? Don’t worry, help is at hand.

Our driver Colin and his team will be happy to deliver for you. We only use our own vans, not outside couriers, so the service is only available locally.
