We try to use correct and accepted names for the plants we sell. Where possible we confirm the identity of our plants but in some cases, where plants perhaps have not reached maturity, we are reliant on the information provided by our seed or stock supplier. We use the scientific names for plants but if you know the common name of the plant you are looking for, you can find it using the search button at the top of the page.
Each of the plant descriptions contains a common name for the plant (if one is available), its general characteristics, cultivation requirements, comments on hardiness and its unique Jungle Score. We aim to describe the size of the plants you will receive and where possible will include a dated (white background) photograph of a typical plant in the batch.
We cannot pretend that our plants are entirely free of pests (The ducks do their best but they cannot get bills everywhere). We inspect all plants that we send out and would not send any that are obviously infested or diseased. We have been known to inadvertently dispatch slugs and earthworms, but this is inevitable with potted plants grown outside in summer. We tolerate some pests that we know thrive only on potted specimens and which will diminish once the host is planted out.
We are registered with the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA). Our identification number is 133767.
The RHS has a scale of hardiness that runs from 1 (tropical) to 7 (very hardy). Most of our plants have a hardiness of H2 to H4.
Our scientifically derived system ranges from J0 (not jungley) to J5 (very jungley).
Currently we mail to Great Britain (Wales, Scotland and England) only. We will resume delivery to Northern Ireland once the regulatory requirements become clear. We do not export out of the UK.
Prices include VAT and mailing costs so there are no unpleasant surprises at the checkout. Orders over £30 will attract a 10% reduction with coupon code AJP21. If you wish to collect your order from the nursery, please notify us before placing the order. We will supply a coupon code for 20% off the cost of your order (includes AJP21 reduction if valid).
We aim to pack our plants as securely as possible and this often (unfortunately) means we have to use some plastic. However, from February 2021, we plan to deliver some of our plants bare root and wrapped in compostable bags rather than in plastic pots. We will only do this where it does not compromise safe packaging. We re-use cardboard boxes so do not be surprised if your package appears to have come (for example) from Amazon!
We aim to deliver in 5 to 7 working days from an order being placed. However, this may vary with the volume of orders received and the likely weather forecast for the period of delivery (we need to reduce the risk of your plants being frozen or overheated in transit). Generally we use Royal Mail, 2nd Class which should deliver 2-3 days after dispatch. Sometimes we track parcels, particularly when it contains items that are not easily replaced. Our main dispatch days are Monday, Tuesday and Saturday but we dispatch on other days too when we have a lot of orders. You will receive an email notifying you when an order has been dispatched and, when we have used a slightly different postage method, a tracking number.

Collections make great gifts for gardening enthusiasts. Five plants chosen to give an introduction to jungle-style gardening. Different collections are available through the year ranging from easy to challenging. We sometimes have a special collection designed to interest children and give them a step into gardening.
These are ideal for birthdays, anniversaries and Christmas presents and are available from £10 to £40. Each blank-inside card carries a coupon code redeemable at the website checkout and is valid for a year from purchase. Why not treat a jungle gardener to a gift they will love?

We use Royal Mail signed-for when we need to insure your parcel for more than £20. In lockdown, RM have not required a signature for this service, leaving parcels at doors. Now that lockdown is over, RM need a signature or they return the parcel to their depot. This is clearly bad for customers (and bad for your plants). It has been suggested that if you can provide a 'safe place' for parcels, RM may do this rather than retain them. Therefore if your order is over £15, please provide a 'safe place' on your delivery instructions and maybe RM will leave parcels as before. Apologies and thanks.
