Established in 1973 and situated at 700ft. above sea level, close to the Peak District, the nursery specialises in the production of a wide range of hardy bamboos. At present over 150 species and varieties are being propagated, many available in large sizes. Although specialising in bamboos, we also stock a range of Shrubs, Grasses and Trees etc.
Collection from the Nursery.
Unfortunately due to the Coronavirus it is not feasible for customers to visit the nursery in the usual way. However in cases where a particular bamboo or batch of plants has been chosen via telephone or email, these can be prepared and positioned ready for collection on a mutually convenient day. Payment in advance is not required and there is of course no obligation to purchase when seen.
We are not specialists in mail order sales and unfortunately have no means of delivering single plants or small numbers. For orders over about £300.00, excluding delivery, we can though quote for palletised deliveries based upon your postcode. In this case there is effectively no weight limit but to ensure that pallets can be double stacked, carriers will only accept a total height of 2.2m ( 7ft 2 ins.) (i.e. includes:- thickness of pallet base + height of pot + height of plants). Occasionally bamboos can be packed on their side or flexible canes can be bent over but otherwise their height will need to be reduced to about 1.8/2.0m. Full details about deliveries can be sent by email.
Payment by cash or cheques only please. We regret that it is not possible for us to carry out card transactions but for palletised deliveries, BACS payments are the quickest and most convenient.
Delivery and collection
Our only means of sending mail order parcels is by Parcel Force but at present we have no bamboos in sizes suitable for posting and costs are in any case very high.
Whenever possible we encourage customers to collect their
plants from the nursery. We will be pleased to assist with packaging, and as
bamboos are both robust and flexible, they can be readily bundled and made quite
compact, so that quite a number of them can easily be fitted into the average
It may not be possible to despatch bamboos during hot or unusually cold weather or to send plants which have soft new growth. Please ask for further details if you think a palletised delivery may be of interest. Costs are dependent upon location and the service required so please mention your postcode. Payment for this service can be made by BACS transfer if preferred.
Unfortunately sending just 2 or 3 plants on a pallet is not feasible as the costs would be disproportionate.
All prices include VAT at the standard rate.
Unfortunately it is not possible to despatch plants outside of the UK and Ireland.
Palletised deliveries can be processed as normal. (please see above notes regarding present restrictions)
