Another Good Nursery


By AndrewR


Earlier today, I received some plants via mail order from Beeches Nursery in Essex (

I have not used them before, but I was after a shrub that they stocked. So I put together an order for fifteen plants (that came to less than £100 including delivery) and hoped the quality would be reasonable. Two large boxes arrived this morning, with the plants nestling in large amounts of straw. The shrub is over four feet tall, having cost the princely sum of £7:50, and the most expensive perennial was £5:20.

We had exchanged e-mails on the availability of the shrub, and the order was placed at the beginning of last week. On the basis of this service, I will be using them again.

I'll keep them in mind. I ordered plants ( bulbs actually) for the first time ever online a couple of weeks ago and am now wondering just what I'd been afraid of :)

I've used Beeches for several years, Andrew, and they are very knowledgeable and helpful and have a very comprehensive list of plants. One to note!

Thanks made a note.
