Packing the plants into them is something of an art, carried
out by our experienced pickers and packers. The plants are carefully stacked in
a way which both protects them and prevents the compost escaping, the latter
assisted by most pots being topped with bark.
We deliver them in our curtain sided lorries, all of which
are equipped with pallet trucks and tail lifts, but we do need to drop them off
kerbside or on a suitable flat, hard surface accessible by a lorry.
Pallet boxes can be left at the point of delivery with the
plants still inside, which can be very useful for customers, especially if they
have a forklift or telehandler available, as the plants can be put straight
onto a vehicle ready to be taken to site for laying out and planting.
