Hi there,

Just wanted to say thanks so much to Big Plant Nursery for all your help - the plants arrived at lunchtime (exactly as promised) all present and correct. Very pleased.

The delivery guy was EXCELLENT - I wanted to say a BIG thank you to him, a really lovely chap and he didn't even complain about the big trek round to the back garden of the property and the steps etc which had to be navigated with the heavy pots. An absolute star.

Very professional & incredibly swift and efficient service all round.
Thanks again!
Best regards,

To Big Plant Nursery - The olive tree was delivered lunchtime, a lovely plant, it arrived in excellent condition and looks very healthy. Many thanks!

I would like to grow it as a standard, which will require some pruning, can you advise me of the best time of year to do this?

Thanks and regards

Delighted by your super fast delivery, Particular thanks for taking the trouble to pick up and enclose a bag of fallen leaves so that my Mother can see how the ginkgo will look next Spring. As a retired Botanist It will really make her 100th Birthday present special"

Buying a half ton ancient olive tree and having it transported from a West Sussex nursery to a small village in North Yorkshire is a bit daunting but the whole process was executed with great efficiency. I was worried that transport costs were going to be too expensive but all I paid for was the petrol. Choice of tree was easy. I requested photographs which were sent within hours. I now have a piece of history in my garden and hope to be eating my own olives very soon.

Thanks, got the tree today – looks fantastic

Just a couple of queries if you wouldn't’t mind?

Should I repot before winter?

What is the watering regime?

Thanks again

Dear Luke,

Rob and I would like to thank you for helping make our wedding very special, the plants you provided us with were excellent and fitted in fantastically well with the white drapes and fake grass theme!

Let me know if you need any quotes for your website as the service and plants were excellent and we would highly recommend you and the big plant company.

A massive thank you

I would just like to let you know how pleased my husband and I were with the service received by your company. We ordered a 4 year olive tree from you on Wednesday and it arrived on Friday.

We would like to keep it in a container but could you let us know when we need to repot it into a larger sized pot?

Many thanks.

The Ginkgo has just arrived and I'm absolutely delighted with it. I already have a male Ginkgo about the same size which I have had for years and grown from a small cutting so I can now make a special bed for the two to grow together, thank you so much for your help,

Best wishes,


Hello - just wanted to say a big thank you!
My sister received her tree this morning (it's her birthday today) and she's thrilled with it. She even praised the delivery guy!
I found this whole shopping experience a pleasure and love the pictures of you guys on the website. Keep up the good work!

Thanks for all your help.

To whom this may concern,
I would just like to say thank you for the prompt service and quality of the two cordylines you sent me. I ordered them on Monday and they arrived wednesday morning. I was expecting to be waiting for a couple of weeks, like I have when ordering from other nurseries on the internet. As a landscape designer this was very much appreciated as one of my suppliers let me down at the last minute. So again thank you very much and I will definitely be ordering from you again in the near future.
Yours gratefully

Good afternoon

Just a brief note to thank you for your excellent & courteous service.

This morning I took delivery of a Dwarf Palm (Chamaerops humilis) and I was at least able to assist your delivery driver a little in unloading and maneuvering it into place - I could not possibly have done it without him!

Now planted, the palm looks even better than we hoped it would - many thanks again.

Best regards

Olive tree has arrived in very good condition and a good size. Will certainly recommend and use you again
