Please note that shipping times are being delayed by reduced Aircraft routes and so there remain significant delays in delivery of orders. We apologise for this inconvenience but it is outside our control.
Please note: We can sell to New Zealand customers only!
We sell our plants by the boxful.
Seedlines are plants grown from our seed raised crosses which are the results of our years of breeding to select the best hybrid seed crosses that we can produce. Our Seedlines come in two pot sizes: 0.5L ('Starter' plants) or 1.25L('Advanced' plants).
Clones are plants from our breeding stock, reproduced from cuttings and are exclusive to our nursery. Clones only come in 1.25L pots and are one year old plants.
Starter plants (0.5L) are smaller grade seedlines. These will flower before Christmas with a central stem and should flower again with 3 or 4 stems in late summer/early autumn.
Advanced plants (1.25L) (seedlines) are a bigger grade than our Starter plants. They should establish faster than our Starter plants, and should flower before Christmas and again in late summer/early autumn. They have already had their central stem removed so their first flower flush should be multi-stemmed.
We ship our plants in purpose made boxes. As such, we can only ship a certain number of plant combinations in each sized box.
We can't safely ship partly filled boxes.
Starter plants: We sell these in multiples of 9, 12 or 25 plants;
Advanced plants: We sell these in multiples of 4, 6 and 10 plants;
Mixed combinations: Box of 5: 3 x Starter and 2 x Advanced; and complete boxes of Starter Plants and Advanced plants (eg 1 x 4 Advanced and 1 x 9 Starter).
Advanced plant 1.25L Starter plant 0.5L
Shipping costs are calculated by the box and range from $10 per box to $20 per box nationwide. Shipping costs are calculated at Checkout.
We don't ship until August as our plants are winter dormant and spring is the best time to transplant delphiniums. Our webshop is open from May to late september and you are welcome to pre-purchase from May until August when we start shipping. We have limited numbers of Clones available and these often sell out well in advance, so if you have your heart set on a Clone then we advise you to pre-purchase promptly. We fill all orders on a 'first come, first served' basis. We close our webshop for plant sales from late september as our delphiniums get too tall to fit easily in a box and we start our seed production from 1 October.
We can't accept any cheques this year as our bank has stopped accepting cheques from 1 July.
Substitutions: We will assume that a substitution is acceptable in the event that your initial plant choice is unavailable, unless you indicate otherwise in the Note section at Checkout. We will substitute a plant of a similar colour and size where possible or contact you to discuss an acceptable alternative.
Our Box sizes and prices are set out below. The easiest way to select your box is to decide on your plant size, how many plants you want to purchase, and then the plants to fill your box. We have put multiple combinations in place depending on how you like to search (type of plant or grade size or a combination of both) and a carousel of seedlines and clones. You can buy more than one box - just repeat the process until you have the plant numbers of combinations that you want.
