Terms of Business


Prices are a general guide only and smaller or larger plants are priced accordingly.

Mail Order

Please note that mail order is for thyme only.  Thymes can be despatched throughout the year, as they become available and there is no minimum charge.  All the other plants in the catalogue are only available from the nursery or at plant sales.  Most perennials are too big to despatch in the summer and by the autumn many varieties are already sold out!

Please e-mail a list of plants you wish to order, or fill in the order form and send together with s.a.e., listing substitutes if you wish, bearing in mind that it is possible that not all the plants you request are available.  I will send you an invoice for the plants which are available, including the amount for carriage and packing.  Please send a cheque for the appropriate amount and the plants will be despatched when the cheque has been cleared.  Cheques should be made payable to Mrs. M. Easter.  If an order includes plants which are not ready for immediate despatch I will inform you.  If this is the case I can either send them all at a later date, or if you wish send them in two consignments, but with two carriage costs.  Please indicate your requirements.

I am also happy to propagate quantities of thymes to order.  Please enquire for details, enclosing an s.a.e., or telephone to discuss your requirements, or send an e-mail to .  If you wish I can suggest suitable varieties for your planting plan.  This usually means you will receive your plants earlier than if you wait for particular varieties to be propagated.

Carriage rates

I use First Class Mail for very small quantities of thyme.  However for larger quantities, I prefer to use a local carrier, Hand Delivery (part of the APC Group).  They are very reliable with a next day delivery service and are cheaper than Parcel Force.


All plants are despatched in good condition and no responsibility can be accepted for failure to grow or for damage in transit.

Plant Sales and Shows

I am happy to take pre-paid orders to plant sales and shows.  Please contact me for details of venues and dates.

Overseas customers

There is no mail order outside the UK, as the carriage costs are prohibitive.  I am happy to supply plants to overseas customers, especially thymes, but they must be collected from the nursery.  Customers outside the EU must be responsible for their own phytosanitary documentation.
