Change to international delivery rates to the EU

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.

Dahlia Fields open from September 5th

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.

Winkie colonel sold out for 2015

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.

Delayed Flowering

Due to the exceptionally hot conditions in June and July our outdoor display beds are running a few weeks late in flowering we expect decent quantities of flowers outside from September. The status of the indoor crops is unaffected and they continue to provide the wow factor at the Nursery.
