An item being available to purchase does not guarantee that is on the shelf ready to go, if you are unsure or in urgent need please call or email us. We are happy to answer any query on stock, we try to hold as much as possible but please refer to ‘Supplier Specifics’ below to get a better idea of delivery time-scales of non-stock items.
Depending on stock availability, we require orders to be placed prior to 12 noon for next day delivery.
Please call and check stock availability before placing any special time limited delivery.
Delivery charges may be applied per package sent (usually dependent on size or a 25kg weight limit). This mainly affects 5L bottles (which are sent 4 to a box) and certain watering cans/buckets which are too large to fit more than 4 to a package.
Standard UK deliveries are a flat rate. However, based on our discretion, all other shipping types will be based upon a 25kg limit per item. If any further payment is required you will be informed prior to shipment.
Delivery times are subject to time of order and supplier delivery times prior to final delivery.
Orders placed before 12pm (if complete stock is available) will be shipped and depending on location, will arrive next day.
We stock the majority of items on the website, however some require special ordering, if this is the case, the following lead times can be expected:
Snickers (including Solid Gear and Toe Guard): Please allow up to two weeks for delivery.

Other products will vary, please call and inquire if you require a more accurate time for a specific product.
Please note: while we endeavor to stock as much as possible, many suppliers have 15,000+ lines of items each and it is simply impossible to maintain full stocks of all items, we will however do everything in our power to get your order to you as quickly as possible, though please allow for suppliers which stock goods in other countries.
