Plant Box Sales Spring & Summer 2021

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 3 May throughout May and June, usually on Mondays and Tuesdays. Or you can opt to collect from Hawkwood Nursery, on Tuesdays 9am-6pm. We’re sorry we can’t guarantee particular delivery or Tuesday collection dates, but will confirm the schedule by email as soon as possible after you order.

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 pre-order, but there will be compost for sale at our collection points.

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. Please understand that the ordering system takes a payment straightaway even though delivery is not until May or June; we appreciate there’s a gap but it would significantly increase administration logistics if we waited to process payments later on.
