Help with your order & FAQs
Do I need to create an account to place an order?
No, you can checkout as a guest so your personal details will not be stored on the website.

Yes, we’ll send you an order confirmation email within 24 hours of the order having been placed. A further email will be sent to confirm despatch.†
Iíve ordered plants, tubers or bulbs and I havenít had them yet. Why not?
These items are seasonal, so we do not carry stock beyond the plants’ growing season. We receive them from the grower when it is the best time for planting, so although there may be a delay in fulfilling your order, it is purely so that we can ensure you receive your goods at the optimum time.† † †
Iíve made a mistake on my order. Can I change or cancel it?
Of course, please make contact and let us know what you would like to change.†
Iíve changed my mind about one of the products on my order, or it is faulty. What do I do?
Orders for perishable and personalised goods may be cancelled up to the point of delivery but not once delivery has been made.
* Orders for non-perishable and non-personalised goods may be cancelled from the time the order is placed up to 14 calendar days after receipt of the goods. To exercise the right to cancel please make a clear statement by email, fax or posted letter, including your full name, address and contact number.

Please feel free to contact us by phone, email or post, and we will do our very best to help.††
Are any of your seeds genetically modified?
No! We do not sell, nor have we ever sold, genetically modified seeds or plant material.††
Are your bulbs treated with neonicotinoids?
No, our bulbs are organic and we would never stock anything which had been treated with neonicotinoids.†
Why arenít all your seeds organic?
Until recently, organically produced seed was very rare and using untreated non-organic seed was the only option for most organic growers. However, since then, the situation has improved. We now have many sources of organic seeds, many of which are available exclusively in the UK through The Organics Catalogue.
There are still gaps where no organic seed is available, and our aim is to fill these when we can. Until that time we will continue to offer high quality, non-organic seed of varieties that have been shown to perform well in organic gardens, providing our customers with the widest possible choice.
