Payment & Pre-orders

We accept orders in advance which we keep on back order until the products are ready to despatch. We also offer some popular items for sale before they are due to return to our stock.

The estimated stock date will be shown in the product details to show you when you should expect your order to be back in stock and dispatched. If you place an order that contains both a 'pre-order' item and currently-available items, you won't receive the order until all the items are ready to be dispatched. If you would like the in stock items earlier, please place a separate order for them. If you pay using a debit / credit card no money will be taken until the order is ready to despatch. Paypal is an instant payment method and funds will be taken at the point of ordering. Ordering in advance will secure you first deliveries and will reserve you your products should they be in short supply that year. Cheques and postal orders to be made payable to 'Garden Supply Direct'.
