Delivery Information

UK Delivery


Charges

I have now changed my delivery charges from a flat rate of £4.50 to a two tier charge to make it cheaper if you wish to purchase a lower value item.

My new charges are as follows:

  • Orders up to a value of £20 will be sent Royal Mail 1st class standard delivery and cost £2.50
  • Orders over £20 will be sent Royal Mail first class signed for and cost £4.95.
  • Orders over £50 will be posted free of charge to UK addresses.
  • If an item is urgent you can select Royal Mail next day delivery at a cost of £8.50.

A small number of items will have a higher delivery charge due to their weight and / or size meaning they have to go as a medium parcel and may cost between £6 to £10 or more if weight exceeds 2kg.  This will be stated on the product page and mostly applies to some indoor gardening items, wreaths and similar. The majority of items will be shipped for between £2.50 and £4.95.

Heavy orders over 2kg will be sent Parcelforce or alternative courier as Royal Mail charges are prohibitively expensive once that threshold is passed. The vast majority of orders will fall well below the 2kg limit.

Timescale

I personally pick and carefully pack your orders to ensure safe arrival and aim to post your order the day after receiving it Monday to Thursday. Orders received Friday will be posted Monday.

Please note that I live in a rural village with no post office and occasionally there may therefore be a delay of a day or so. If your order is urgent please see below.

Once I have posted your item delivery time scales are down to Royal Mail or alternative carrier if applicable and out of my hands. First class service should take no longer than a couple of days, but due to Covid there may be delays.

Urgent / Time Critical Orders

If your order is urgent please contact me and I will do my utmost to get it to you by the required date. If this requires a premium Royal Mail service such as Guaranteed Next Day or Saturday Delivery the relevant price difference will be payable.

Europe & Rest of the World

Please get in touch if you would like any of my items sent overseas so that I may quote you for postage which fluctuates wildly internationally. Any import duties or taxes payable on orders sent overseas are the responsibility of the buyer.
