WELCOME TO OUR PLANT NURSERY WHICH ALSO HOLDS THE NATIONAL COLLECTION OF LUPINS
Welcome to our plant mail order site for the UK, a plant nursery not a garden centre or supermarket. We take great pride in our packing and quality of plants so please order with confidence.
Orders are sent out all year round but not bank holidays or other public holiday periods.
Appointments may be made for collection of plants - we are open 10am - 3.30pm Monday to Friday from 7th March till end of June for this purpose. (closed 1-1.30pm)
ALL PLANTS ARE SENT OUT IN 9cm pots. The time of year sent out to you will clearly affect how large these plants can be on despatch - many will be dormant until at least mid April having had little chance to put on much growth and therefore be small on receipt. If this is not what you are looking for, please go to a garden centre where they may well be larger but will have nothing like the range. None of our plants will be taller than 30cm, many will be a lot less due to restrictions of packaging, weight and practicality. However they are well rooted and ready to plant out. Young plants will always establish better. Heights given are eventual height of mature plant. We aim to turnaround plant deliveries within a couple of working days but you can advise us of your preferred date for delivery if you wish when you place an order.
IF YOUR ORDER (over 3 plants) HAS NOT BEEN DELIVERED WITHIN 48 HRS PLEASE CONTACT PARCELFORCE www.parcelforce.com and enter your tracking details given in the email to you when we depatched your order. We have further details on our site under our MORE INFORMATION section. (postal rates and contact us page)
Our prices are keenly competitive and the packaging is specially made for our plants. If there is some damage externally it will be due to the rough handling of RM or Parcelforce, not our packing or boxes. Even then, it is rare for the contents to be damaged.

CHRIS BEARDSHAW USED LUPINUS MASTERPIECE IN HIS GOLD WINNING DISPLAY AT CHELSEA 2013 and Lupinus 'Masterpiece' was used extensively in all the Chelsea Gardens 2015, even as a backdrop for the BBC presenters. Rachel de Thame also used it for the Royal Barge in 2012.
We grow all our own plants and breed all our lupins and are primarily a mail order business and therefore unable to take calls.
