Plant Size & Price Guide
Highly seasonal products like tropical indoor plants vary in size, colour and availability with the seasons. Please read below to gain further understanding of our plant products.
As plants change a lot throughout the growing season, they quickly end up larger than the photograph. As we get larger specimens, we'll update the first image on each product page to better reflect the size of the current batch. When we run out of a batch of plants, we'll change the first image to reflect a smaller size.
2020 Plant Availability
The events in 2020 have been both a huge pressure and a catalyst for growth within the horticulture industry. Most growers are experiencing huge demand for all types of plants from houseplants to outdoor ornamentals to natives and food crops.
As of Spring 2020, we've never has fewer plants in our greenhouse due to a spike in demand over winter. Selling most of our stock is a good problem to have. We've adjusted our product lines and have a number of new species coming through over the next 2 years. This season, we have over 50,000 plants due to come through our careful hands and into yours this spring, summer & autumn but, good things take time.
As we are in unheated greenhouses, our peak season runs from late spring through to mid Autumn which is approximately November - April.
Delicate plants such as Calathea, Alocasia, Colocasia & Caladium tend to be propagated and available in the warmest months, January - March. More robust houseplants such as philodendrons, anthurium, peperomia & ficus may be available and propagated at all times apart from winter. Robust half-hardy plants such as palms, succulents & ferns may be more consistently available throughout the year.
Our prices reflect the space a plant takes up in our greenhouse and the time it takes to grow to a suitable size. Slow growing and larger plants are higher priced than smaller fast growing plants.
We aim to compete on convenience and surety of supply. There's no guesswork around if something will be available and you don't need to leave your chair to get the plant you want. We want to service plant lovers, not plant traders so we price our plants at or slightly below the market value to hopefully discourage buying & re-listing.
