How to order

The simplest procedure is for the customer to email us their wish list, then for us to confirm availability, price
and delivery cost (if delivery is required). Once a customer confirms the order by email, we will provisionally reserve the items pending payment. We require a 50 percent deposit (full payment where the order value is under €200) to firm up the order. Where payment does not reach us within a reasonable time (7 days unless otherwise agreed), we reserve the right to re-allocate the stock to other customers. In the event of order cancellations, provided the stock can be resold we will refund any payment made, minus a handling charge of 25%.

We request that customers do NOT email a scanned order form as these can be very hard to read!

Please make sure you provide a contact phone number in your email. Please note that we cannot take orders or answer stock enquiries by phone.

International Orders

We regularly ship plants to other European countries. International enquiries welcome.

Guidelines for international orders

Fruit trees: apples and pears only. We do not export any other top fruit. Minimum order generally 20 trees of any variety.

Berries: minimum order generally 50 of any variety. P9 size only.

Nuts: We do not export almond trees. Most other nut trees are exportable (subject to size limits below). With 2yr cobnuts there is a minimum of 10 trees per variety. The criteria for other nuts varies according to the species (please enquire).

Parcel size is limited to 20kg and 1.5m in length. This equates to approx 15 x 3yr cobnut trees or maiden apples, providing they aren't too tall. Anything bigger/heavier we have to send by pallet crate, which is expensive so not really worth it for quantities of under 100 trees. We can get up to 250 x 3yr cobnuts trees/maiden apples in a single pallet crate and up to 800 trees in a double crate.

2yr cobnut trees are much lighter and smaller. We can fit approximately 70 x 2yr cobnut trees in a 20kg parcel (possibly 80 trees if we spray-wash the roots to reduce weight) and around 1200 trees in a single pallet crate. This is the most economical size of cobnut to send abroad.

For container-grown coniferous nut trees the most economical to ship by pallet crate are the 3 and 9 litre sizes

Additional guidelines for UK customers

As a consequence of Brexit, there may be some restrictions on what we can export to the UK after 31st December 2020.. Intending customers in the UK are advised to order well before this date.
