The standard dispatch time for items is 3-5 working days. Garden furniture and barbecue orders may take up to 2 weeks for delivery.

For plant orders, the delivery date is determined by the item with the longest availability lead time i.e. if an item has a 2-week lead time, your order will be held until all items are available to be shipped together in one consignment by our delivery partners APC. 

Garden furniture is delivered by the Hillier team. After we have received your order, a member of the team will be in touch to discuss and confirm a convenient delivery date and time for you. We aim to call customers within 48 hours to arrange a suitable delivery date, but cannot always guarantee this.

If you have ordered a gift card, this will be dispatched within two working days (Monday – Friday) following your order and sent first class via Royal Mail. 

Will you give me a delivery date and time in advance and do I have to be at home at this time?

Once your order is dispatched, you will be able to track its progress via our delivery partners APC, who will send you a ‘tracking number’ so you can follow your order’s progress via their website or mobile app. Delivery days are Monday through Friday, excluding weekends and public holidays. All deliveries will be contactless, adhering to social distancing guidelines.
