How to check for availability

Use our Nursery Catalogue to check for availability of plants, select plants and add them to the enquiry list. View your selection and send it to the Nursery. (Plant photos taken at Great Dixter – majority by Carol Casselden).

What happens next

We reply to your list within 3 working days with availability of plants. Then, if you would like to proceed with an order, please contact us by telephone with credit or debit card details. If you do not receive an email from us within a week of making contact, please check your junk email folder before getting in touch.

Mail order delivery

**MAIL ORDER has now finished and will restart again at the end of October but enquiries and reservations can still made for plants to be collected from the nursery.**

Collecting Plants

Plants may also be collected direct from the nursery all year round. We are happy to reserve plants for collection if you would email us your list prior to your visit. Bringing your own box will be appreciated.

Pot sizes and prices

In general our £3.50 plants are in 9cm pots. £4.50 plants are in 10x10x11cm pots, £6.50 plants are in 1.5 – 2 litre pots and £8.50 plants are in 2 litre deep pots. But there are always exceptions and as the season progresses and plants grow, they may be potted on and thus incur a price increase.

Name Changes (most notably Asters)

Where plant names have newly changed they are listed under their new name, with their previous name or synonym listed in parenthesis. Most notably, many plants, but not all, in the Aster family have now been re-classified as Symphyotrichum, Eurybia and Galatella amongst others. Please check the list under these new names to find the plants that you are searching for.
