Reserve Early With Delayed Delivery
Some of our products sell out within a month of being released in August and will not be available for another 11 months. Prevent this by ordering now if your item is listed with a delayed delivery message such as "DELIVERED 19th AUGUST".
As you already know, trees are alive! It takes a minimum of 2 years to get our trees to such a stage that we are happy to sell it to you. As you can imagine, forecasting demand in two years time is next to impossible. Weather, political and socio-economic changes all have an impact on our stock e.g. it only takes one popular gardening program or some new fad to completely wipe out an entire section of our catalogue.
So if you want to be sure of getting your item and for it to be the best specimen available (these are sent out first) be near the top of the list when the new stock is released.
The best way to do that is to either buy your tree shortly after the new stock has been released (always mid-August) OR buy now if your item is listed as delayed delivery. This means you are at the top of the list for when the new stock comes out and you receive your tree before all others that have not waited.
So to be clear, if the tree you want has a delayed delivery message or delivered date in red text in the product name, you can buy it now and it will be delivered on the date shown. The advantage being that your tree will be "pick of the crop" as these are picked and sent first.
Should your item be in stock but you still want to wait for "pick of the crop", please mention this in the white text box at the bottom of the page when you reach checkout.
