Our trees, plants and gifts are sent by both Royal Mail and via a courier network depending upon the quantity of plants ordered. During the order process you can select your preferred delivery date. This is not a guaranteed date of delivery. Our Tree Gifts can be posted on the day of purchase if ordered before 11.30am. The larger, non-gift items usually have a 5 working day lead time before the first delivery date. We usually despatch larger quantities (approximately 15+ plants) on Mondays and Wednesdays with a courier working on a next day delivery basis. Bare this in mind if you have deadlines. Less than 15 plants are usually posted out 1-2 days in advance of your chosen preferred delivery date.
Please remember these are living products so you need to arrange delivery to an address where someone will be in to receive them either from the courier or Royal Mail. If you are not available at the delivery time, Royal Mail will either leave the item in a pre-arranged 'safe' place where your parcels are usually kept or the parcel will be returned to the local Sorting Office and a card will be left asking you to collect or arrange an alternative delivery time.
We do not recommend posting items to schools or offices during holiday periods.
Remember to double check all delivery details are correct before processing your order as we can not re-send items that have not been received if the address details were incorrect.

Unfortunately due to previous bad experience we do not deliver to Ireland and Europe. If you would like to take trees to Europe, we suggest you order them to a UK address and collect them from there or ask a friend to post them on.
