Plant Availability

By Mail Order
The plants we stock and sell are available at different times throughout the year, not necessarily all at the same time. When you send us a plant enquiry via our online Nursery Catalogue or a mail order form by post, a member of our staff will contact you to let you what is and isn’t available.

At Great Dixter Nurseries
If you are making a long journey to visit us, it is prudent that you check with us that specific plants that you seek are available.

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.
