International shipping.

We ship our plants to all parts of continental Europe and the U.K. In case of EU countries there are no restrictions, additional VAT, or duty we know of (last checked January 2013). If your country is outside the EU we can send goods to you, too, but you may be obliged to pay your VAT to your tax office, and duty if you exceed a certain amount. Please check with your local authorities the maximum value of goods for which you needn't pay duty. To avoid disappointment we suggest you chceck these conditions before placing an order.

Costs of international shipping.

Most of the goods we send abroad travel in boxes made specially for sending plants in. The parcels travel via Czech Post service and are delivered to you via your national postal service. The price can be calculated at Added is only a packing surcharge (see below). When you make an order we always let you know the exact shipping charge for you to accept or decline before we send the order out. Please remember that although we do our best to reduce the shipping charge to minimum, the plants have to travel safely to get to you in good order. So saving money by reducing the number of parcels sent, or choosing a cheaper service that takes longer, might cause severe damage to the plants inside, especially during the season when each day is important. That is why we always choose the safest and quickest way rather than the cheapest.

If you make a larger order which needs to travel in a lorry or a van, we enquire the best price for you from our international haulier.

Shipping to Russia and United Kingdom

RUSSIA: Owing to constant problems with parcels sent to Russia we cannot guarantee safe arrival in any Russian address. Parcels were either held at customs where plants were dying, or they got lost or stolen without any compensation from their side. Safely we can only ship a larger order in a van or a truck. A parcel can be dispatched only with your written consent that you are willing to undertake the risk.

GREAT BRITAIN: Following new rules after January 1, 2021 Great Britian refuses accepting parcels with live plants of any kind until further notice. Currently we can only ship a larger order worth more than £135 to a VAT registered business customer in a van or a truck. Transport costs of one pallet are usually £230-270 plus customs clearance (about £33). Both plants and shipping are VAT free. Once you place your order we will always contact you with shipping options prior to processing your order. Owing to increased administration transport may take up to 5 days (plants are not endangered).

NORTHERN IRELAND works as any other EU country if transported via ferry and GB is not entered.



Shopping in our garden centres

Unless you own at least a small fleet of vans, lorries, or army helicopters we have an excellent way of delivering your purchased goods right to your house (I mean your plot, not your kitchen) by one of our vans. The prices of such transport are shown below, and will be confirmed to you by our shop assistant after you have made your shopping, or upon request it can be estimated before you pay for your goods so you can decide whether to go ahead and how to proceed. This service is available if you buy a small present for your husband that does not fit your handbag (the present, not your husband), or if you need a hundred of cherry trees for your new driveway. We will always find a solution of how to get the plants to you.

When you shop on-line

Plants that are in stock are tagged with an option showing how they can reach you if you are not able to come and pick them up yourself. Either BY POST (these can be sent in a safe and solid box by regular courier service), or BY CAR (these need a vehicle to be transported in and it depends on the plant size whether a family car will do or a van will have to be used). You can ALWAYS collect them yourself from our garden centres during standard opening hours. If you choose to have them sent BY POST we will send them as soon as they are available and fill one box unless a different way is agreed. Plants tagged with SPRING have not been measured yet and therefore the means of delivery cannot be given, only estimated.

Delivery of plants in our vans - valid from December 1, 2021
