Holly Plants

We try and add a minimum of 100 new holly plants a year in order to keep up with the growing demand for freshly cut holly for wreath making.

It is all planted as dual purpose, more often than not it is planted alongside the farm stock fencing to provide a substantial barrier for livestock whilst still allowing a ‘crop’ of holly to be harvested for our wreaths. More recently we have added rows of holly to act as windbreaks for other, more delicate, horticultural crops and this has been quite successful.

We took these plants as cuttings last year and will grow them on in pots until November this year when they will be planted out. It might be 15 years or so before these plants are providing a good annual holly harvest.

Website Checkout Live

We are still wrestling with the new website configuration and uploading products. Today we have added payment options and shipping for online orders. Please do get in touch if anything doesn’t seem right.

Postage is calculated by the weight of the total order. At the moment we only have standard shipping available which is equivalent to 2nd Class and usually takes 3-4 working days to be delivered. We hope to add more options later.

Please watch the shipping costs as it is easy to jump from normal parcel charges to a charge for a pallet. For multiple heavy items, the cheapest way may well be to do multiple orders keeping the weight under 15kg.

If you are local, please just get in touch and we will sort out a convenient time for you to collect your order and save the ever growing cost of postage.

Changes

Rapidly rising costs

Due to the rapid changes in costs we are going to have to do things differently if we are to get through this period of inflation.

Thoughts are that we continue to do mail order for smaller quantities via ebay and have larger quantities collect only direct from the warehouse where the cost savings of labour, packaging and shipping costs can be passed on to our customers who can bulk buy in this manner.

The previous websites we operated have now been closed down to save money and we will be concentrating on rebuilding this one up to reflect the new way of working.

We are still trading in the interim.

We really do apologise for the obvious inconvenience to our loyal customers and, of course, any suggestions are very welcome!
