We regret that we do not accept credit cards, but can take cash or cheque payments.
We would be happy for you to visit the nursery to collect your plants in person.
If this is not possible we are able to arrange some deliveries by registered carrier. We use Royal Mail special delivery for orders under 2 Kgs. This guarantees delivery by 12 noon the day after despatch and we are confident in the satisfactory condition of perennial plants upon arrival.
The delivery of your plants will not be made if you are not at home to receive it If this is inconvenient, let us know and we will send by ordinary first class post instead. Please note that we are unable to accept liability for losses resulting from theft, late delivery or any damage to next-day unsigned-for consignments.If you are going on holiday let us know and we will despatch at a time to suit you.

Larger orders are despatched via TNT 3 -10 Kgs �21.00 and 11 - 30 Kgs for �27.00 This applies to mainland England, Wales and most of Scotland. We will confirm this price when you check the availability of your order.
Heavier orders may be delivered to mainland destinations in England and Wales either in our own van or by nominated specialist horticultural carrier at a negotiated price. Trees are prohibitively expensive to send and are best collected in your own car. Flowering bulbs eg large Alliums and lilies are only despatched when dormant.
All plant orders totals at �15 or over ( including transport charges) include a FREE GIFT from the award winning Celtic Herbal Company.
Annuals like Basil are unsuitable for mail order. However, they are easily grown from seed or you can collect plants from the nursery. Arne Herbs does not sell seed but a list of nurseries that do may be found in the RHS Plantfinder. Biennials usually travel satisfactorily but they are never as reliable in transit as perennials and their despatch is entirely at the client's discretion. Arne Herbs accepts no liability for any problems incurred during or subsequent to, the transit of these plants.
Arne Herbs sells its own gift tokens which may be exchanged for plants either at the nursery or at any farmers markets we attend. Please add the amount you wish to spend to the order form at the end of the catalogue. Arne Herbs gift tokens are not redeemable at other nurseries or for cash
Although Arne Herbs stocks a large range of North American herbs, our main interest is in European historic gardens and we endeavour to stock as many authentic Medieval and Renaissance plants as possible. A Modern to Middle English plant dictionary is available from our office. Arne Herbs is always pleased to advise in this area of garden design and with proper planning Medieval gardens will provide colour which will appeal to all visitors.
We are always pleased to help customers with their plant enqiries and advise on the care and uses of the many plants in our collection. You can contact Arne Herbs here.

Alternatively clients may use our own photographic library for a negotiated fee
