Our Feedback
I am a totally satisfied customer. Who was amazed by the carefully packed tree I'd ordered only days before. Which arrived in perfect condition. I throughly approve of the paperless policy and the lack of acres of plastic in the packaging. I will now be a return customer and recommend to all my friends

Business As Usual – Well Nearly!

It has been more than a while since we updated our Home Page and video clip, the main reason being we’d been waiting for it to stop raining long enough to get out with the camera! But thankfully we have now had just under a week of dry weather and can finally get on with all the outside jobs that have been piling up.

Un-thankfully, Covid-19 has come along; ‘interesting times’ for the UK, ‘interesting times' for the World.

For our part it is just about ‘business as usual’. We are lucky that as a team we work either outside or in airy greenhouses, and by the very nature of our job rarely work in close proximity of each other. We’re obviously all taking the necessary precautions - from regular hand washing to spreading out just a bit more at coffee break.

But sadly, due to the current situation we have decided to close the nursery to calling customers. Currently none of our team are ‘poorly’, and we want to keep it that way so that we can continue to provide our mail order service. Our team are working hard to minimise their contact with others outside the work environment and so are basically 'at home' or 'at work' - we therefore think it unfair to them to continue to remain open and risk an unsuspecting visitor infecting us.

So until such time as our Couriers and Royal Mail will not collect from us we will continue to send out seeds and plants to all our gardening friends.

Currently we are experiencing a very high level of orders - and dispatching these as quickly as we can.

At present we are only able to offer Seeds and non perishable items for purchase in order that we may catch up on dispatching plant orders.

After ordering, should you check back to our website and see the Availability Date for a product has changed this is for new orders, not yours!

Please try to avoid phoning or emailing to chase delivery as this simply ties up someone who could be packing orders!

With many being forced to stay at home, and the threat of food shortages, there has never been a better time to Grow Your Own. And from a mental health point of view for those self isolating getting out into the garden is a fabulous (and safe) way to stop ‘cabin fever’ setting in.

If there is one silver lining in all this nonsense it is that we are at the beginning of the Gardening Season – the perfect time for starting sowings and plantings!

Finally, if this is the first time you are having a go at growing things - good luck!

For our part we will make sure we get your order to you as soon as we can. If you have concerns about delay and read an article in a magazine or online that it is 'too late' to plant something that you have ordered please rest assured that we have over 56 years of growing stuff and would not for a moment send out seeds or plants if we did not think they will perform. So please do not cancel due to delay!

After ordering, should you check back to our website and see the Availability Date for a product has changed this is for new orders, not yours!

Remember, not everything you grow will be a success! In gardening failures are the way that you learn. If you are a complete novice you may find our 'How To' Videos and written guidance at Useful Stuff of help.

We hope that once all this 'nonsense' is over you will consider continuing with your new hobby. Growing your own is truly satisfying and healthy - and shouldn't mean you're chained to the garden!

Be sure to follow all our antics at the nursery on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for regular updates on what we're doing.

Keep Safe & Happy Gardening

The Shirley Family & All the Team At Victoriana
