Delivery Costs

Short willow cuttings

Short willow cuttings are sent by Royal Mail First Class Post.

If you are ordering only short willow cuttings the postage and packing charge is £4.00.

Please note that there is a minimum order value of £14.00 for short cuttings.

Willow kits, long willow whips & ‘dead’ bundles :

If you are ordering willow kits, whips or bundles, please note that, because of their length, they
must be sent by a specialist carrier (TNT)  (unless you would like to collect from the Nursery) – so there is a
£19.00 charge per order to cover packing and delivery to UK mainland addresses (excluding parts of the Scottish Highlands).

We can arrange delivery to the Scottish Highlands and Islands, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands
too – however, the carriage charge will be higher.  Slightly higher charges also apply to the Isle of Wight.

Please get in touch if you would like to find out the cost of delivery to these locations.


There is a minimum total order value of £20.00 for long willow whips.

 You are welcome to come and collect your order by appointment ! 

Delivery Arrangements

If you place an advance order before the cutting/delivery season for living willow
(which is generally late November to late February) :

Short willow cuttings orders will be sent by Royal Mail, at the start of the season  – unless you ask that delivery be delayed.

Long willow whips,Kits & Bundles – we will get in touch with you when we start cutting to arrange delivery by carrier.


If you place an order during the cutting/delivery season we will assume that you are ready to plant**

Planting should be within a couple of weeks of delivery ! 
The willow will need to be unpacked and stored in a cool place (just outside in the shade is fine). 

We aim 
to send out short cuttings orders within 3 working days.

Orders for long willow whips and kits, sent by carrier, are generally sent out twice a week.
We will advise you of the despatch date (and tracking information if sent by carrier). 

If you would like to place an order early in the season to ensure availability
but you would like 
delivery delayed, please add a note to the order or send us an email.

The carrier we use (TNT) does generally require a signature upon delivery.  

** We will email you with the despatch date of long whips and kits – however, to save time,
please let us know if you would like delivery delayed at all or if there are any particular dates
during the
delivery period that you would like us to especially avoid.

Whilst TNT generally does deliver the day after orders are sent we, unfortunately are
not able to guarantee next day delivery, so please bear that in mind when planning delivery and planting.

Please let us have any directions or identifying features if they will help the
carrier to find your property more easily and, hopefully, avoid delays in delivery.
