Throughout the year we sell a small range of plants that are very beneficial to our pollinator friends, and that are normally only available at events.
Due to the current Coronavirus situation we have a special offer of FREE DELIVERY on our pollinator-friendly plants, to all our customers within our home post code of SE9 (South East London), and within a surrounding 3 mile radius. If plants are ordered you may also add on other items from the website. Unfortunately, other discount offers may not be added on to an order.
Your items will be packed safely and you shall receive a payment link via text message. We can arrange a suitable time for your items to be delivered (on all orders over £10). Please order by sending an email to email@example.com (or via the contact page), and include a mobile number and delivery address.
By signing up to the newsletter below you can be kept informed on new plants, special offers, new products and events throughout the year (see bottom of page).
