Limited stock Plants and advance orders
For many years we've had species in our nursery that haven't been for sale, or we haven't had time to propagate them, or we think there isn't sufficient demand for them. Sometimes we have plants that will only produce viable seed now and again, sometimes we can only manage to strike a few cuttings each year or only a few plants germinate. In these cases we may only have a few plants for all our efforts. On the other hand we don't want to produce large quantities of plants and then find out there aren't any buyers for them, that's such a waste.
For all these reasons its very difficult to offer them on our website and then guarantee we can supply them, however we would like people to have them. To this end we've created a new category where people can request a species and we will produce it to order. Obviously this will take time but how we cope with this fourth dimension, of time, is what growing plants and gardening is all about.
These species are marked Limited stock , they can be selected by themselves or as part of any normal order. When you select them we'll contact you and let you know when we can produce them for you. In some cases we may have a few ready to go, in others we'll be as honest and as realistic as we possibly can be and let you know.
Pre-order - Autumn Planting or Spring Planting Seasons
This is our preferred option as we have more time to select and prepare the plants for you. Normally this gives you more choice of species and the price is discounted to encourage customers to use this option.
