We can ship only within the UK at the moment. Orders are usually dispatched within a few working days by 2nd class post or PF48 hour courier if larger. Any varieties out of stock at the time of ordering will follow layer when back in stock. We are currently facing considerable delays and shortages thanks to brexit.
When you place an order, we will estimate shipping and delivery dates for you based on the availability of your items and the shipping options you choose. Depending on the shipping provider you choose, shipping date estimates may appear on the shipping quotes page.
Please also note that the shipping rates for many items we sell are weight-based. The weight of any such item can be found on its detail page. To reflect the policies of the shipping companies we use, all weights will be rounded up to the next full pound.
