We are a small family business with limited resources so, at the moment, we are not trying to provide stock control in the shop. With nearly 350 species for sale it would simply take too much time to count the stock and their quantities and upload it to the shop, and even if we did we would have to track the manual sales and constantly adjust what the shop reported as available stock.
So for the time being stock is 'unlimited' in the shop. So whilst this means that you can seemingly order pretty much any plant and in any quantity, please bear in mind that those plants and those quantities may not be available.
Once your order arrives we will check the actual availability of your order - we would be doing this even if stock control was in place - and we will get back to you if there are any problems fulfilling it.
You will find some plants that are marked as 'out of stock' and therefore not available to order. We will do our best to flag out of stock plants.
Also apologies for the lack of plant images, like stock control, it's a major undertaking for me to take photos of all our plants when they are at their best and get them onto the website - and some varieties will change every year. If the shop is successful this will be an ongoing task.
We would also like to provide more details on the plant itself, but again this is going to take time. Please bear with us. You can always Google the plant name if you are unsure about its habit or looks.
