Due to an iminent upgrade to the website to make it more freindly to mobile devices there will be some downtime expected over the comming weeks. This will be timed for the early hours of the morning between 12 and 3 am. This shouldnt cause any disruption as this is normally a quiet period. You will however notice a difference to the layout and logo once we are complete.
Change to International Shipping rates to the EU. I have been able to reduce the cost of international deliveries to our customer in the European Union for small orders of up to 12 plants.
the rates now in use are
1-12 plants £12
over 12 plants £20
the cut off point for the higher delivery price is based on the price jump in the royal mails airmail weight limits.
As of today 14th Feb 2016 if you order 10 or more of a variety online the shopping cart will discount the variety by 10% in effect 10 plants would previously cost £22 and now cost £19.80 this price change affects all products on our site including the new releases.
The new 2016 catalogue should be going out early next week, in the meantime for those that want to view a copy please check out our downloads page and follow the links to a pdf file of the new catalogue.
The dahlia fields now have 80% of the varieties in flower. The cooler weather and lack of warm sunshine have held up flowering so far this season.
Our Dahlia fields will this year be open from Saturday September the 5th. Please note the field has moved from its previous home at the side of the nursery back to it’s original home at the bottom of the nursery. This will involve a long-ish walk of about 1/4 mile. Disabled customers will be allowed to drive down to the field but please be aware it is fairly resrtricted on turning space at the end of the nursery.
We have planted approximately 400 varieties for customers to observe in our trials beds.
Enjoy, pictures will follow.
This is the last delivery week for 2015 whilst we still have plants available after this week it will be on a collection only basis.
we expect a small number of orders that are still waiting for certain varieties to be shipped beyond this date. If you haven’t received your order by the end of this week please email me and i can let you know the status of your order.
Sorry but due to excessive demand following Chelsea flower show we are now sold out of winkie colonel. Some orders may have to be substituted with Spartacus. Orders with more than 1 plant of Winkie colonel will probably come through with plants “to Follow” as we await fresh stock over the next 2-4 weeks.
Cold weather and night frosts have held up shipping in late march. We are now starting to send out the first orders but expect disruption due to the Easter weekend. Our earliest delivery week available for orders is now week 17 Week beginning 20/04/15.
Trade orders trade customers who haven’t yet ordered please email your requirements to us as soon as possible. Whilst we still have availability in May and June we rapidly run short of spare stock so early reservation of stock is essential.
