Plant Box Sales Spring & Summer 2020

FINAL WEEK! Last chance to order: we are now taking orders until Thursday 21 May only, which will be for delivery in the first week of June.

You can order plant boxes below for home delivery, for the following postcodes: E4, E10, E11, E10, E17, IG8 and IG9. Orders will be despatched every week from 20 April throughout May and June. We’re sorry we can’t guarantee particular delivery dates but will let you know delivery plans by email or text when you order.

We are a not-for-profit organisation and would appreciate your support in making plant boxes available to those experiencing financial hardship. If you can afford it, please add a “solidarity contribution” on ordering the plants. In your order confirmation email you’ll find a link to a download of ‘Seedlings From The Smoke’, the book version of our Musings of an Urban Market Gardener blog.

When you select a plant box you’ll have the choice to add the appropriate quantity of greenwaste compost for growing in the ground, or container compost for growing in pots. We’re sorry we cannot offer separate or additional quantities of compost for sale, due to current availability.

You can pay by credit or debit card – any difficulties please email plants@organiclea.org.uk but note that it’s a busy time in the nursery so we’re checking email about twice a week.

We’re sorry but you will only be able to order if your billing address is in one of these postcodes: E17, E11, E10, E18, E4, IG8 and IG9.
