Home/Deliveries/Vehicles

We have our own fleet of vehicles and organise all our own transport so we have full control over deliveries and can track where your plants are at all times on route to you. Our aim is to always be able to give you an accurate time for deliveries to site. All our vans and lorries meet the London Low emission zone and we are FORS Bronze award holders.

Our 18 tonne and 7.5t tonne lorries are available to take large orders direct to site where access is not a problem. The 18 tonne lorry has a crane on-board to lift larger specimen trees off to the kerbside when there is no forklift available on site.

We have smaller vans that can nip in and out of London and urban areas to small development sites and to garden designers private client gardens. Several of the small vans are not sign written so if you want our company details kept private from your client you can make that request with our transport manager when you book the delivery.

You can choose to have you orders delivered on Danish trolleys which are more suitable for delicate orders of herbaceous and shrubs these want to be checked off on arrival and the trolleys returned with the lorry. We can alternatively pack your orders into crates and boxes labelled so you can unpack at your convenience on site.  Please let us know how you would prefer your plants to arrive when booking in your delivery with John, Lisa, Peter or Rachel.
All the picking vehicles on the nursery are environmentally friendly as we run around the 15 acre site collecting your shrubs on our fleet of electric golf carts. Even Peter’s car is electric and is nicked named “The ghost” as he silently creeps up on people on the nursery.

New for 2015 is our electric powered plant walker which on request can come to site and help walk larger shrubs and trees into position, booking this, needs to be pre-arranged with John or Peter.

PLEASE NOTE THAT WITH ALL DELIVERIES THERE MUST BE A REPRESENTATIVE FROM YOUR COMPANY TO MEET THE OUR DRIVER AND CHECK THE PLANTS OFF.
WE CAN ONLY DELIVER TO KERB SIDE UNLESS SPECIAL ARRANGEMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE WITH OUR TRANSPORT MANAGER.
IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY WITH YOUR PLANTS FOR ANY REASON PLEASE LET THE DRIVER KNOW AT THE TIME OF DELIVERY AND MARK THE DELIVERY NOTE ACCORDINGLY.IMG_1448
