FAQ

What sizes are you plants?

Because I grow in coir pots, they are not a recognised size within the horticultural industry. The nearest I can come to an answer is, I grow in approximately 10cm plastic liners, which are transferred into coir at the time of sale. Plants grown in bigger pots are stated in the descriptions.

What are your delivery charges?

£7 Flat rate. All orders are sent by Courier (usually Hermes). (Weekends and Bank Holidays can hinder delivery times). I always try to send orders out the same day, but sometimes I can get stuck out on a job so it will be the day after…if there is any delay I will always let you know. I am always looking for ways to improve postage, hopefully if my little company gets bigger I can negotiate a better deal…I will always be trying for you.

Is Planting the Coir Pot with the Plant Important?

Yes, when a plant goes out for sale, I personally select the plant. It is taken out of its plastic (used over and over again), at this point I can give the roots a check for any obvious problems, (only plants with good root stock leave). I will then loosen the root ball slightly and place in it’s coir pot, with extra compost and in many cases some feed to help it on it’s way and give it a good start when it is planted in your garden. All I asked is that you soak the plant before planting, to start the decomposition of the coir (which also adds nutrients to the plant and your soil), then keep new plants watered for the first few weeks in the garden (longer if we are in drought).
