P&P charges for UK orders:
The Post Office have greatly increased their rates for small packets.
Taking credit cards is also expensive - the fees we pay are often more than the stamps.
We are trying to find the fairest way to cover all this without overcharging you.
Almost all Orders: Handling, Postage & Packing is £1.89 (at cost)
Since 2010 we have also been offering subsidised postage at 89p
for those who are unfortunate enough to be low-waged / unwaged.
Orders over £70:Always sent Registered at no extra cost
We hope you think these are fair and reasonable!
Foreign Orders - yes but to Europe and Canada ONLY
We only mail seeds within Europe (specifically within the European Union and to
other countries that have customs agreements with the EU).
If your country is on the drop down list in the 'change location' page in the shopping basket,
then we can mail to you. Otherwise, sorry, but we can't send you seeds.
Please, do be patient:
The Post Office say that packets can take up to 4 weeks to arrive, even just to France.
European Postage Rates:
We are sorry, but because we have had so many problems with lost orders
and delays we are now only offering Insured Registered post.
This is charged AT COST - we do not make any profit on the postage.
The shipping cost depends on the value of your order:
orders up to £50 the cost is £9.00, pro rata more above that.
You will see the exact amount in your shopping cart.
We know this is hugely expensive for small orders but that's what it costs us. We make no profit on the postage.
No seeds sent to USA or Other Countries outside Europe!
We're really sorry but we cannot ship outside Europe.
By the way, for all the confused Americans who still keep trying to order seeds, you are not in Europe. :-)
Disappointed we can't send seed to you?
Here are some other excellent seed suppliers who you might like to try instead:
It really is better to buy seeds locally within your country - they will be selected to do well
in your climate, rather than ours, and you will be supporting local businesses.
Some particular companies that we know of who offer good local seeds include
Ireland - Brown Envelope Seeds
and also the Irish Seed Savers Association
France - Biau Germe seed cooperative
and of course Kokopelli
Excellent seed in the United States - try our friends at Adaptive Seeds or Seedsavers Exchange
