Anyone delivering garden supplies?


Recommended Posts

Just out of interest, the Waitrose and RHS keep closing their online ordering section due to high volume. I think the 2 main sheds - B & Q and Homebase - have limited stock and a collection day up to a week away. It's always worth contacting one of the nurseries out of London direct and asking maybe...

I am doing deliveries from my nursery who are operating a distancing collection for plants, trees, pots, compost , watering systems, gravels & stone mulches , bark chip & more.

I am doing collection & deliveries in the next few days , but have to wait for my slot

Shannons are extremely helpful.

If you phone them, they will tell you what they have in stock or are expecting.

You can then pay over the phone.

They will deliver, but it is expensive. However you can drive to their back gate, phone them from your car and they will put your order outside the gate while you sit in your car.

When they have gone you can pick the things up.

I got a load of compost yesterday.

Am being careful with handling the bags though (wearing gloves plus leaving it in the car for a while).

ETA: I can also highly recommend Nigel above, who was very helpful regarding something else a month or so back.

Just wondering if anyone has ordered anything from the lovely Shannons Garden Centre lately, and if so, how long did it take? I emailed an order on 1st May but haven't heard anything (apart from an automatic email reply). Am I being too impatient? Don't want to chase, they must be inundated with orders and anyway instructions are not to phone them... thanks

    • This is clearly far from a unique issue. Somebody posted this on Facebook and it is so similar to posts here I asked him if he was with Tessa Jowell - he said "no, Lewisham".  "This morning on the microsecond of 8am I tried to get through to my GP on the phone...it went straight through to Hold. Tried again. Same thing. Tried a third time...Same thing. OK, I thought, I will hold. 32 minutes later, I gave up. The voice said "Did you know you can now book appointments online?" NO YOU CAN'T...I have the Patient Access App & for the past 2 years it has said "This practice is unable to book appointments online." Anyhooooo...on way back from shops I popped into the actual surgery to see if I could book an appointment in advance...that was my second mistake...Receptionist said "No. You will have to ring up on a Monday morning to see if we have any for that week" "Oh, and what time should I ring?" "It's best to ring at 8am" "But i just spent 32 minutes this morning on hold and couldn't even get through" "Yeah, sorry about that, we are short-staffed at the moment...but did you kn ow you can now book appointments in advance online?" "No, you can't" "Well, there are sometimes some appointments available online" "Nope, no there aren't...looked every day for 2 years and not a scintilla of an appointment..." "Well, you could always ring up at 8am" "You do know the whole system is completely falling to pieces?" Receptionist gives rueful look. In case I lost it and set fire to the whole fecking GP Practice there and then, I left. I will try again tomorrow morning at 8am. And see if Dr Godot will see me...We are well and truly f****d, peoples."
