Oak Piece Nursery is a nursery, propagating, growing and retailing a broad range of ornamental plants. Most of the plants listed on the website are perennial and the vast majority is fully hardy. I like to grow plants that succeed without a lot of cultural problems, partly because it makes producing them easier, but also if a plant thrives for a customer it gives him, or her, the confidence to buy more from me. Many of my plants are grown in reduced peat compost produced on site. I adjust the pH by adding Magnesium limestone and add the fertilizer and trace elements necessary for healthy growth.
Whilst I am full of the best intentions to keep this web site as up to date as possible, gardeners and plantsmen will appreciate that given choice the between doing nursery work or computer work, the nursery work will win every time. New plants are added regularly to the plant list, but probably only added to the web site once during the growing season.
I pride myself on the quality and reliability of my plants.
This web site is for customers checking availability before visiting, and for mail order customers.
Plants sent by mail order are the same size and quality as those sold at the nursery. I only sell well grown plants. If I have stock that is not properly established I will decline your order until later. On the other hand, sometimes the stock will have been potted up into pot sizes too big for mail order, please enquire whether bigger sizes are available, these of course will have to be collected. Orders are usually dispatched on Monday (or Tuesday if Monday is a Bank Holiday) by Royal Mail Standard Parcel Service. All orders will be acknowledged. Where possible I use recycled packaging material for postage and packing. I only dispatch plants to UK addresses, if you are visiting this web-site from a country outside the United Kingdom I apologise but I do not have the capability to handle export orders.
The Mail Order service is for well grown 1 litre, 1.5 litre or 2 litre pot sizes. (Bigger pot sizes are available, but not for mail order).
Please follow the ordering procedure. I can also accept orders by telephone or fax.
Payment. At present I can only accept payment by cheque (you can still order online). All plants remain the property of Charles Ellis until paid for in full.
