Delivery & Packaging

Our trees are dispatched by carrier to UK mainland destinations only. They are dispatched by carrier and should arrive within 5 working days of you placing an order. The trees are flat packed. The branches will be packed vertical, parallel to the main stem and you will need to arrange them. The foliage branches are on plastic coated wires and can be bent in an arc so that the tree replicates the habit of a real tree. We will include instructions appropriate to the tree you have bought. The wooden stems of the trees are cemented into a small black pot at the manufacturing stage. The tree would not be stable in this pot alone and needs to be planted in a larger container. If you already have a container or wish to buy from elsewhere use two or 3 dry foam blocks (purchased from a florist) placed vertically between the inside of the container and the tree to hold it in position. If you order a planter from us, the tree will be fixed into the planter with foam and you will be supplied with moss to dress the top of the foam.

All measurements are from the base of the tree to the top of the wood or bamboo stem. Foliage can add a further 15cm onto the overall height and planting in a pot will add a further 2-3cm.

If you are buying for a business and would like Big Plant Company to install your trees, you can order your trees on the internet and then send your request for installation by email. Installation includes unpacking the tree, planting in a container and arranging the tree branches so that the tree is ready to display. We charge an additional £25 per tree for this service. However if you are buying more than 4 trees, ask for a quotation. We will invoice you separately for this service.

If you are interested in purchasing from outside the UK please enquire via sales@bigplantshop.com .

We reserve the right to make a charge for carriage and packing for trees and postage and packing for plants.
