Due to unprecedented pallet volumes, driver shortages and Covid-19 challenges, the UK pallet network is currently experiencing disruption to pallet delivery timeframes which may result in slight delays being experienced in certain areas. We are working closely with our pallet couriers to minimise any disruption to our customers and we thank you for your continued support and patience during this time.

Orders of 12+ bags will be sent on a pallet, on a lorry. Standard delivery charge of £25 applies to most of mainland UK. Pallet orders will be delivered kerbside or to flat hard standing at the drivers discretion. Please carefully consider the logistics and discuss any challenges with our dispatch team.


Delivery to  Isle of Wight, Isle of Man, Guernsey, the Channel Islands and certain parts of Scotland, Wales, London and Cornwall may incur an additional delivery cost. We will contact you if there will be an additional delivery charge on your order.

Scotland - AB10-56, DD, HS, IV1-63, KA1-30, KW1-17, KY, PA20-41+, PH1-50

  6. Standard delivery charges apply to most of mainland UK however offshore islands and some remote parts of Scotland, Isle of Man, Isle of Wight and Northern Ireland will be an extra price. Please contact us for a quote.
  7. Pallet/ Lorry orders - We do ask our carriers to deliver in a 7.5 ton vehicle, however not all members of the franchise are able to do this. Normally the pallet arrives on a lorry with a tail lift and a hand operated pallet trolley. The driver will attempt to place the pallet where you require, but he cannot move it uphill due to the weight, or across gravel and he may not be able to safely get his vehicle onto your property. In the event of problems he is only obliged to place the pallet on the kerbside. Please consider your access carefully and let us know if there may be any issues so we can help to solve them. The driver will not unload the bags from the pallet and will not take the pallet away.

Customer Comments

  • "Thanks for the compost, which arrived very promptly. I will definitely be ordering more for later on.I can safely say that the seed compost has worked for me - I have good healthy baby plants, which I most certainly did not have with the previous organic compost. Lorna - Stirlingshire
