My Ilex arrived today. Well within the 48 hours you said it would be. Very pleased, well packed and a lovely plant. I had prepared its planting hole and managed to plant it this afternoon.

Thank you again.

I have just unwrapped my new Cercidiphyllum Heronsgate - I think it is the best quality plant I have purchased online ever !

Beautifully grown, well wrapped, larger than anticipated and what a fabulous variety - always a risk when you can't choose the plant yourself - but I would have chosen this one.

Thank you very much.

Dear Larch cottage

Just a quick note to confirm the arrival of the order.

Very impressed with the speed, the packaging and most especially the plants.

The shrub is an excellent size for the price and clearly extremely well grown and both the herbaceous plants look good (difficult to say more in February, that there are tiny leaves and "noses" peaking out is as much as one can expect!)

Thank you so much for your care and efforts

Jo hi,

I needed to write and thank you for the extreme care with which you had packed my trees, which I opened last night  - I’ve never received anything packed with such care, not to mention you taking the time to check with photos before you dispatched.

Thank you so much.

Kind regards, Stuart

Hi Jo,

Just to say the Sorbus trees arrived safe and sound and look great. Thanks so much as always for the excellent service. 

Lovely article about your nursery and garden in The English Garden recently. Beautiful photos. I have been meaning to visit the nursery one day after this never ending lockdown.

Thank you for delivering my J C Van Tol Holly which has arrived very promptly. It arrived this morning, so we have unpacked it and everything looks fine. It looks a very healthy specimen, and look forward to seeing it flower and produce berries at the appropriate times.

Thanks again.

Good afternoon, 

Many thanks for my order which I received today. I am very impressed with the thought and carefulness taken with packing the plants, which arrived in good condition. The protection using shredded paper around Nandina domestica var. leucorpa was really amazing and so effective!

Kind regards,



A big thank you to all at Larch cottage nurseries,  for your help and excellent service 5 star rating




My beautiful deep red witch hazel arrived today. Plant is so healthy. Great protection in transit too. Thank you, it has made my day. I have made it my mission to visit Cumbria and your lovely garden, from Surrey, as soon as we can. I think I will have to bring lots of spending money!

Best wishes,

Dear Larch Cottage,

I would like to thank you for such good service !
I placed my order last week and i've just received it now - superb quality plants and packed with such consideration that i had to let you know how very pleased i am from start to finish.
I order quite a lot of plants online and the experiences aren't always good, however, the overall service from you has been perfect, couldn't wish for better.

Thank you,
Mrs. C. Denton.

Hi there,

I just wanted to give some feedback regarding my recent delivery of a large Hawthorn tree.
From initial enquiry to delivery of tree the service I have received has been excellent.
Good advice from Jo, and thanks for that.
The tree was delivered promptly and so well packaged and protected it would have withstood a nuclear attack !  The tree was great and now planted, pictures attached.
It was my first order following a recommendation from my brother in law 
and would have no hesitation in recommending your nursery to anyone.
Thank you

‘Thanks very much for your help, the plants arrived in perfect condition. As we've seen other people say you guys really know how to pack and ship plants.

We'll be back for more plants in the spring.

Kind regards


Please thank everyone

Please thank everyone for selecting some very nice plants for me. They were delivered yesterday and I'm very impressed

Best wishes



I do think your service/ plants/ packing is of a high quality.


Dear Friends at Larch Cottage,

My shrubs arrived today – the first day possible from the instructions I sent you. Not only are the shrubs of brilliant quality, with flower buds for next season already showing, but I am just astounded at the effort that had gone into your packaging.  The plants arrived in perfect condition. I will definitely want to order more plants from yourselves.

Many thanks,


Thank you

Thank you for this order which was delivered yesterday. The plants are excellent and all arrived in good condition.


Good afternoon

I recently took delivery of the three plants I ordered from you.  Amazing plants, mature and fantastic size and the packaging was excellent.  I cannot fault either your service, your packaging or delivery in any way.  I just wish I didn’t live so far away as I would visit you as soon as possible!  

Kind regards and keep up the good work.


Much appreciate your service and my best wishes.

The shrub arrived this morning. Looking very good and leaves turning golden already.Thank you so much for sending so quickly after your note and tell call yesterday. V good of you and especially welcome arrival as someone here today who could plant it! I am 94 and alas sadly I am not able to do any gardening myself anymore. I hope it will give pleasure to lots of people for a long time to come..
