Next Day Delivery / Dispatch Time
If your order is placed before 1 pm Monday - Thursday, we will endeavour to pick, pack and ship your item(s) on the same day for next day delivery (*subject to stock availability). However, the closer to 1 pm the order is placed, depending on how busy our mail order department is, it may mean your item will not be dispatched until the following day so please allow up to 1-3 working days for dispatch. Rule of thumb, the earlier an order is placed, the greater the chance it’ll be delivered next day. If your order is urgent please contact our Mail Order Department on 0161 273 5995.
We also do not dispatch orders on a Friday, unless Saturday delivery is specified. Our reason is we have no control over the warehouse where the courier will store the parcel. We feel this is important, especially when shipping nutrients which can be affected when stored at the wrong temperature, therefore we prefer to keep products in our warehouse over a weekend, ready for dispatch the following Monday, unless it’s a Bank Holiday, then it'll be shipped on the next full working day.
Heavy/Large Item Surcharge
If your order includes heavy or large items (such as 50 litre bags of soil or large systems) it will incur an additional £5 heavy item surcharge per item. You will be prompted on the website when an item qualifies for the additional charge.
If the size and/or weight exceeds what our courier allows, an alternative method may have to be used, for example, shipping it on a pallet. Unfortunately this means an additional charge will be incurred, but we will contact you via telephone prior to the order being processed.

If paying by Credit/Debit Card or PayPal, unfortunately, we cannot ship to an alternative address.

Out of Stock / Delivery Delays
In the event that there’s a problem with your order, for example the item is out of stock, or a replacement product needs to be offered, we will contact you first via telephone, if there’s no answer, we’ll send you an email, explaining the situation.
