Holiday For A Week!

We now have everything back in stock on the pruning tools front – hurray!

Take a look at what you might like for doing any cutting and clipping this Autumn….

Also, please note the following:

We Are Away From Wednesday 12th September, Until Thursday 20th September, So No Orders Will Be Sent Out During This Time!

Is that ok?

If you do make an order and then realise we won’t be sending it out, then we will send you a refund when we get back. Just let us know via email what you prefer. Otherwise, we will send out the moment we return, so you will have it by the weekend….

No orders from Wednesday, for a week – got it? Thank you!
