ORDERING SEASONS

Spring: 1st January-31 May. Autumn: 1st June -31 December.

DESPATCH SEASONS

Spring: 1st January to 31 st May. Autumn: September end to December end.
Late lily orders in Spring are NOT desirable, because it is difficult to handle advanced, breakable lily shoots, which would also escalate the cost of packing and posting, over and above stated rates. This could apply to Other Plants items, too.
Autumn despatch of late flowering lilies, likeOriental species and hybrids, often has to be postponed for early Spring season, because these plants do not die down before Christmas, usually.

AVAILABILITY

While reasonable stocks of all plants listed here are growing in our gardens, many rare lily species and hybrids can be sold out late in any one season, so becoming unavailable. In this situation, we ask potential customers to list some possible Substitutes, or indicate that they would prefer their remaining cash back.
Also, we grow many more plant varieties than listed in our catalogue or even on the web site. We, therefore, welcome enquiry from our customers about possible still other plants that we may be growing in our gardens.

RESPONSIBILITY

We are always despatching freshly dug, healthy stock, that should grow very well if treated well by the purchaser. But, if you have any complaints, please inform us within 7 days following the receipt of your order.

No responsibility can be accepted for failure after planting, because drought, waterlogging, pests and diseases can take a toll.

AFTERCARE

Growing instructions are supplied with all lily orders, applying to lilies only.
Other Plants items key growing hints are included in their individual descriptions as given on the Website or the Catalogue. But, once you receive the order, please do the following:

  1. Open up the parcel immediately;
  2. Remove all plants out of a parcel, carefully checking their labels against your order;
  3. Plant all plants immediately if at all possible;
  4. In case of bad whether conditions not permitting planting, water your plants and place them sheltered outdoors or in the greenhouse.
