Covid-19 update re: delivery schedule

Website customer deliveries:

We are still posting customer orders every business day (Monday to Friday) however please be patient with the couriers due to increased workload and stretched resources. This is affecting all couriers nationwide. Most couriers have suspended their timed guarantees. You can still choose upgraded postage at checkout and we will ship your order using your chosen method however be aware all services may experience a delay in transit and many couriers are 1. capturing photo evidence delivery instead of signature delivery and 2. leaving parcels in a safeplace.

Shop customer deliveries:

If you are wanting to purchase items from our store and garden centre in Maldon please call our shop on 01621854225 and the staff will advise you regarding our home delivery service to local customers using our own transport.
