Crocus is the only gardening website that specialises in plants. Of course they sell everything else you’ll need for the garden, but plants are their thing. They pride themselves on being able to offer you the biggest choice of plants in the UK. To give you an example, a good garden centre can give you around 400 plant varieties to choose from. Crocus can offer over 4,000.
If you’re worried about all this choice, don’t be. They can help narrow it down for you.
They have created a section of the site where you can choose plants for a particular job like: covering walls or fences, or providing a lovely scent when you open the door. You can also choose by colour, flowering time; or soil type
And if you are really stuck you can email one of their plant doctors and they’ll give you a host of golden ideas.
Once you’ve placed your order you’ll get a confirmation email to let you know when to expect delivery. They’re obsessed with ensuring your precious plant arrives with you feeling and looking as good as when it left them. Their couriers are the only ones they’ve found that will handle your plants as carefully as they would. They’re also very proud of their packaging. It was specially designed for them and has recently won a design award. Occasionally something will get damaged and if it does they will replace it, however currently their return rate is under 1 percent.
Once your order has arrived they’ll keep in touch via email with gentle reminders about pruning, spraying, and fertilising and providing the TLC that the new addition to your garden needs to thrive.
