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. Should customers wish to place an order online for collection they can via the "I'll Collect" option at our Checkout, and we have measures in place to deal with these.

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.

Please Note: We are experiencing a very high level of orders at present and dispatching these as quickly as we can.

Whilst we are quoting delivery within 21 days we hope to get your order to you sooner, and are dispatching orders in strict order that the have been received (first come, first served).

Seed only orders are being dispatched faster than orders that include plants, so feel free to place seperate orders, or request split delivery at checkout.

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...

Not everything you grow will be a success! In gardening failures are the way that you learn! We truly 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!

As a family we have been selling seeds and plants by mail order for over 56 years. Once again, we thank you for your order - and hope we can serve you again in the future.

 

Be sure to follow all our antics at the nursery on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for regular updates on what we're doing, and general banter posted with a grin!

Keep Safe & Happy Gardening

The Shirley Family & All the Team At Victoriana
