Our Goals

GardenBulbs.uk is committed to supplying high quality seeds, bulbs, plants and garden accessories.   All our flower bulbs are excellent quality; we import them direct from Holland where they are grown to the highest standards.   We also specialise in perennial plants and grow these on from plug plants into 0.5L, 1L, & 2 Litre potted plants.  All sizes are available to purchase online.   We package all products as carefully and as fully as possible to ensure they arrive in the best condition possible.
 

Availability


We endeavor to be as accurate as possible on the website with regards to stock availability and quantity availability.   All products that are in stock are available for immediate delivery.    If the stock appears as Pre-Order, this means the item is currently out of stock, but will be back in stock in the future and can be pre-ordered for delivery.   The availability date is shown on the product page to give an indication of the approximate date that the item will be back in stock and available for dispatch.  Your order may be dispatched before or after the date stated.  Depending on the product you order, this could be up to 9 months in the future, if you have just missed the season end for that particular product.   But rest assured, we will deliver your item as soon as it becomes available.  We have a database of pre-orders awaiting dispatch, so please don’t worry, we won’t forget you or lose your order, our reputation depends on it!

If we have made an error on the website and a product(s) has been priced incorrectly, either directly or via a special offer promotion, we reserve the right to cancel your order before we accept it.     In these circumstances, we will notify you by e-mail of the correct price for the product(s) you have ordered and you will have the option to either pay the difference, or cancel your order and receive a full refund.   Once we have dispatched your order, we have accepted your order and enter into a contract with you to supply you with your chosen products.  Your contract for supply is with GardenBulbs.uk (a division of DStubbs Sales, owned by Daniel Stubbs.)

We often reduce the price of Seeds, Bulbs and Plants that are out of stock and on pre-order, to encourage early sales for the coming season.    This helps us, because we have a better idea of the stock we need for the coming season, and so we pass a saving on to you for helping us out.   Do not be surprised to see the price of a product increase as it comes out of pre-order and back into stock.   This is usually to compensate for the fact that the price was at a discounted rate to attract pre-order sales, but the price may also increase due to supply and demand when our stock levels are low on any particular product.     We reserve the right to adjust our pricing and availability at any time.  

If for some reason, we have made a mistake on the website and the product(s) you have ordered are not available for instant purchase and delivery as indicated, we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of any stock shortage and we will do our best to offer you similar products, or add you to our pre-orders database, awaiting dispatch as soon as the product becomes available again.  Of course, you will also have the option to cancel your order and receive a full refund instead, if you prefer.


Multiple Quantity Discounts

We offer multiple quantity discounts on most products, so the more you buy, the more you save.   Discounts are only available on a per product basis, so you would need to order multiple items of the same product line, to get a multiple quantity discount.    The discounts are automatically added, so you can be guaranteed of paying the best price per product for the quantity you have chosen.  The Quantity and price bands are shown on the main product detail page.  Simply click on the Title or image of any product on the website, to be taken to this main product detail page.   Under the Unit Price you will see further pricing bands decreasing in price as the quantity of items increases.   Please note, the price stated is per item.     For example if a price of a product shows up as ?6.99, if you click on the image, it may show you:

2 or more £5.99

5 or more £4.99

This is the price you will pay for each plant, less any further discount codes you may be able to apply at the time of checkout.  And don't forget its Free Delivery on all orders over £30.


Delivery

We only deliver to UK addresses.  
Our standard flat rate postage charge is £2.99.  (To Most UK post codes)
Orders over £30 are delivered free of charge.  (To Most UK post codes)

Due to the time taken to pick, care for, and wrap our orders we cannot at this time offer a next day delivery service.   We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this.

Please note that due to the weight of some orders, certain UK Post codes may incur an additional delivery charge.  We will contact you after ordering, if there is an additional postage fee to pay.  This mainly applies to some areas of the Scottish Highlands and UK addresses off the UK mainland (Channel Isles, Northern Ireland, Isle of Wight, Isle of Man, Isles of Scilly, Shetland, Orkney, Western Isles).

All products listed on the website with a stock availability greater than zero, are available for immediate delivery.  We try to maintain accurate stock counts.   We usually dispatch all in-stock products within 2 days of ordering.   We will send you a dispatch notification e-mail on the day we dispatch your items.   Your order should be with you within 1-2 after dispatch.   Please allow 7 days from the date of ordering before contacting us regarding an order that has not been received.   To prevent damage to your order, we may decide to delay dispatching your products for one or two days, if we think your parcel could be held up in the post over the weekend.  This usually only applies to potted plants and plug plant orders, as we want to get these to you as quickly as possible, once boxed and dispatched.   Your order may be dispatched in multiple boxes and sent separately, if we deem it necessary.  You will not be charged extra for this.  Your parcel will be cleared marked as 1 of 2 or 2 of 2 for example to indicate this fact.  If you have ordered a range of out of stock (Pre-Order) items, your order may be part-dispatched in different boxes on different days, so you may receive your order gradually over time.      We have a database of pre-orders awaiting dispatch, so please don’t worry, we won’t forget you or lose your order, our reputation depends on it!

If you have any special delivery requirements, for example, If you need us to include a short message on your parcel with instructions for the postman, then please add a comment with your order in the delivery section of the checkout pages or alternatively please e-mail us as soon as possible after ordering at sales@GardenBulbs.uk    Please note that we cannot guarantee that your instructions will be added to the parcel or followed by the person intended to follow them.   You agree not to hold us responsible for failure to add your instructions on your parcel or non-compliance with your instructions. We cannot accept liability for non-delivery of items for reasons such as: recipient not available; parcel not collected or address not correct or accessible.
 

Pre-Orders

Pre-Order products are available on the website and are often sold at a discounted rate to encourage pre-season sales.  Prices may vary at any time.  If the product availability shows as ?Pre-Order?, this means the item is currently out of stock, but will be back in stock in the future and can be pre-ordered for delivery.   The availability date is shown on the product page to give an indication of the approximate date that the item will be back in stock and available for dispatch.  Your order may be dispatched before or after the date stated.  Depending on the product you order, this could be up to 9 months in the future, if you have just missed the season end for that particular product.   But rest assured, we will deliver your item as soon as it becomes available.  We have a database of pre-orders awaiting dispatch, so please don’t worry, we won’t forget you or lose your order, our reputation depends on it!  If you have ordered a range of out of stock (Pre-Order) items, your order may be part-dispatched in different boxes on different days, so you may receive your order gradually over time.  You will receive a shipping confirmation e-mail, every time we dispatch something out to you.   We reserve the right to charge additional postage fees for large pre-orders that require periodical dispatch.


You have the right to cancel your pre-order in part or in full at any time, from the time you place the order on our website, to up to 14 days after receipt of your products.   If you decide to cancel your pre-order before delivery has taken place, we will simply issue you a full refund back onto the debit or credit card or to the PayPal account you used during checkout.  If you decide to cancel your pre-order after delivery has taken place, you will need to return your products to us first, before we can process you a full refund.   In this instance you will be liable for the return postage costs.  Please initiate a return via our returns system if you would like to do this.   We reserve the right to cancel and refund any pre-orders for any reason and at any time.

Plant Condition

While we do our best to ensure your plants are healthy when packed and are packed securely and shipped quickly, with the delicate nature of posting a living product, It is not uncommon for some discolouration of the foliage to occur due to the fact that the plants have been in a dark place for a period of time during transit, out of their natural environment without sunlight and water.   They may not be as vibrant and perky as a plant purchased directly from the outside section of a garden centre.   Please rest assured however, that the plants will return to their normal, natural, healthy state within a few days.   Furthermore, if the plants arrive and appear ?limp? and in a sorry state, please bear in mind they have been without water during transit, and a good water should soon revive them.  If your plants do not perk up within 4 or 5 days, please contact us about your issue.

If you have ordered potted plants, when you receive your plants, give them some water, without over-watering them, and leave them on a window ledge for a couple of days to slowly recover from their journey before potting them on or planting them out.  

If you have ordered plug plants, when you receive your plants, get them in the ground immediately or pot them up into a pot at least 5x the size of the plug, immediately on receipt and give them some water, without over-watering them.

We would recommend that you prepare your pots, or planting area ahead of time before your plants arrive, so that you can plant them immediately on receipt, the plants will need to be dealt with quickly on receipt to avoid damage and decay.  Please ensure that you open your order immediately upon receipt as they can sweat a little inside the box.   Please read any instructions provided carefully before planting.

We promise to supply you with good quality, healthy plants in prime condition.  However, it is your responsibility to ensure you follow any associated instructions that may be provided with your products, Or if no information is provided to do your research to establish the best way to grow the product you have ordered and keep it alive and healthy.   We understand that when dealing with live plants that occasionally problems do arise despite our mutual best efforts.   Unfortunately, we cannot issue refunds or replacement plants where you have failed in your responsibility to nurture and care for your plants properly, which has caused them to suffer or die.   You agree not to hold us financially responsible for any losses that occur as a result of your negligence.  We cannot accept responsibility for items that fail to grow due to extreme weather conditions, or have been abused by over-watering or neglected by under-watering.
