We have a weekly delivery service around Kent and often beyond.

Delivery charges below are for a single drop at the address regardless of size of order. East Kent deliveries are usually on a Friday, using our own transport and drivers. Drivers are instructed to leave plants discreetly at unattended properties, usually leaving trees lying down to prevent them being blown over by wind and rendering them less noticeable from the road.

Please also note that delivery of individual items over 30kg is to kerb side or easily accessible driveway locations with vehicle access. Delivery of any items through properties or into rear gardens is entirely at the owners risk and can only be undertaken where practicable and with assistance.

Our delivery charges range from £12.50 to £30.00 depending on the distance.

Planting, good staking and aftercare are very important. Trees need a roomy planting pit, well forked over for good drainage and aeration. Incorporate planting compost with the backfill soil so the new root growth will have access to oxygen and base fertilisers combined with wetting agents to aid moisture retention in the summer.

It is most important to give newly planted trees a large circle of grass free soil around the base and maintain it for a minimum of two years.  Tree need leg-room to re-establish their root system without the competition for moisture and nutrients caused be grass oe weeds.
