Soft fruit plants are relatively easy to grow. They require sun, shelter and free draining fertile soil.
We blend both fine and coarse peat with pine bark, as well as mixing in a control release fertiliser that will last the growing season. Finally a base fertiliser is added to provide that initial nutrient boost. Plants must still be watered regularly after initial planting and during dry periods, and may benefit from further feeding during the season with something like tomato feed.
NB This mix will suit most soft fruits apart from Blueberries who require a more acid growing media. See our Blueberry Mix.
Our own fleet deliver across Kent, Sussex, Surrey and London. Beyond these areas products are shipped via our trusted carrier partners.
We provide home deliveries direct to your door in loose loads, small and bulk bags. In Kent, Sussex, Surrey and London these deliveries are carried out by our Gardenscape fleet of 6 wheeler lorries, these are all equipped with a 2.5m HIAB crane, meaning that bags can be placed within this reach where you need them for your convenience.
Deliveries to addresses in the wider UK are made by pallet carrier and therefore curb side delivery only can be guaranteed.
Whilst drivers are requested to do their best to deliver as close to the property as access allows it is not possible to move pallets over loose or uneven surfaces such as gravel or grass. We therefore recommend you check before ordering. We are not able to carry materials from the delivery point. Access to sites must be on hard roads over which a vehicle can pass without sustaining or causing damage of any kind.
If you need to reschedule your delivery please give at least 24 hours notice.
We also offer a garden and general waste collection service. You can either use your own empty big bags or we can send you bags in the post. Please see our Waste Bag Collection section for more information.
Local deliveries (Kent and Sussex) by our own fleet are included in the costs shown on the product pages.
Deliveries outside this area will include additional charges which will be calculated on the Basket page prior to confirmation and payment.
The majority of the products that we sell can be collected from our depot in Newenden Kent, either loose or in Bulk Bags, for considerable savings. The minimum that can be collected loose is 1/2 tonne or 1/2 cu. m.

NOTE - Your vehicle / trailer must be large enough to be able to be loaded without product overflow. It is your responsibility to ensure that your vehicle is not overloaded.
The majority of our products are naturally occurring and many therefore differ in colour and texture from one year to the next. We us trusted suppliers to ensure that the products we sell are of a high quality and we avoid changing suppliers, so we can optimise consistency.
