etc on the drop down menu at the top of this page. These lists give sizes,
prices and quantity discounts.

we can post or email it in MS Excel.
do I order ? We don't have a shopping trolley (or a
wheelbarrow) on this site......yet !
Orders can be given by letter, phone (027) 66176 or email
Email is especially suitable: we can confirm your order quickly, answer any
queries, advise if a plant is sold out and recommend alternatives. We
then email you when your plants have been dispatched.
Is there an Order
Form ? Most people
just email a list of the plants they want.
You can also copy and paste into
an email from the website or from a copy of the list in MS Excel (see above).
We include an order form with our paper list and you can request a version
in MS Excel by email that you can complete and email back to us. We hope to
have this online shortly.
As there is such a huge range of plants in different sizes, bare root and
potted, it's a challenge to devise one order form that encompasses
everything ! .....however, we are working on it.

As long as the roots are damp, the plants will hold fine in the bags for a
few days, stored upright in a shed or cool place. Tie the bag to
ensure wind does not get to the roots. If you can't plant right away, you

move them to their permanent site. There will be a leaflet describing this
in more detail along with advice on planting and aftercare in the 'Documents
