Plant and Compost Sales Spring & Summer 2023

You can order plant boxes and compost below for home delivery, for the following postcodes: E4, E10, E11, E10, E17, IG8 and IG9. Orders will be despatched every week from 8 May throughout May and into early 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. You can also order compost separately, up to 100 litres per order, which has a delivery charge of £5. If you want to order more than 100 litres please email plants@organiclea.org.uk for a quote.

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. The deadline for placing plant box orders is Thursday 18 May.
