Royal Mail Postal Strike October, November & December 2022

Due to the planned postal strikes we not be able to order and send stock as we normally would.  Most of our stock is live and cannot be in the post very long before it degrades. 

We also have a break in service while our suppliers and Royal Mail are closed.

Below are some key dates related to ordering.

Thank you so much for all your orders, questions and support this year.

Apart from the last few weeks, 2022 has been fantastic and I'm so pleased that the new houseplant owners and novice gardeners have stuck at it despite some challenging weather conditions and setbacks due to pest outbreaks.

Here's to less 'outbreaks' and more growth in 2023!  Oh and no strikes please!

I hope you have time to relax as we move from year to year and Happy Christmas if that's your thing!

All the very best


Owner, Ladybird Plantcare
