We use APC couriers who don't operate on weekends, they operate a Monday to Friday service only to most UK Mainland destinations.
We were concerned that our parcels containing fresh seasonal plants had to be dispatched on Friday for delivery Monday. The orders were always held in each area's local depot for 3 nights before delivery to the customer and We could not guarantee that plants would be in prime condition upon delivery to our customers. We now dispatch Monday for Tuesday deliveries.
For this reason we have changed our delivery days to Tuesday to Friday only, all orders are delivered on overnight courier, within 24 hours to ensure maximum freshness of our plants.
Our Standard 48 hour Delivery
Normal delivery time from placement of order is 48 hours (UK only), except at particularly busy times like Christmas or Mother Day where it might be wise to allow an extra day for delivery. generally, online orders placed up to midnight today will be despatched tomorrow for next day delivery on our overnight couriers.
You can also request a specific delivery date just add your required delivery date when placing your order.
24 Hour Delivery
If you wish to receive your order or send one as a Gift more urgently, Place your order by telephone before 1pm & pay by credit or debit card and we will despatch the same day on our overnight service for delivery the following day.
