IMPORTANT: Please read the following details to ensure you are not charged extra for re-delivery.
If the delivery is by Pallet Economy or Pallet Express, your plants will be delivered in pallet crates up to 1.2m x 1.2m (4ft x 4ft) wide on a lorry. Please ensure that a rigid lorry (not articulated) can get down your road and park adjacent to your property. If access is tight please note this when ordering and the courier should be able to send it on a small 7.5t lorry or a Luton Van. The courier must be able to unload the pallet (see below) or it may be returned to the depot and there is an additional charge to have it re-delivered. If you have any doubts or questions, please ring 01460 281265. The courier will leave the plants in the pallet crate and it will not be able to take it away. Please ensure you are able to dispose of the pallet crate before ordering.
It is better if someone is available to sign for the delivery. If no-one is available to sign for the plants, please note this when ordering. Unless instructed otherwise, the courier will return the order to their depot if they are unable to get a signature for delivery and there is an additional charge to have them re-delivered. If you have any questions, please ring 01460 281265.
The plants will be delivered between the hours of 9am and 6pm on your chosen day of delivery. If you would like the courier to ring and book in the delivery, please note this under Special Instructions and allow four working days from date of order to time of delivery. The courier will contact you to book in the delivery so please supply a telephone number that you can be reached on during business hours. Alternatively, special delivery notes can be added to the order, e.g. “Please ring 30 mins before arrival” and the courier will do their best to follow them.
We will make every effort to deliver on the agreed date, and only use couriers that are tried and tested for their reliability and care. However, very occasionally, our couriers may not be able to deliver on your chosen day, on these occasions, we can accept no liability for delay of the goods. It is worth arranging delivery for one or two days before you plan to plant, just to make sure your plants get to you in time, especially if you are employing a gardener or landscaper to plant them for you.
If the ground is steep or rough (e.g. soil, gravel or hardcore), please arrange for someone to help the driver unload the plants by hand. The courier will drop the wooden crate with a pedestrian pallet truck at the kerb or just into your drive if you have one. The pallet truck needs a smooth flat surface to move on, such as concrete, block-paving or tarmac. If your ground is steep or rough, please arrange for someone to help the driver unload the plants by hand.
You can pay by CardSave (part of Worldpay) or ring 01460 281265 between 9am and 5.30pm (Sundays 10am-4pm) to pay by card over the phone.
By purchasing goods from Evergreenhedging.com you enter a legally binding agreement with us on the following terms. It is important that you read and understand these terms because they affect your rights and liabilities.
In these conditions of sale:
“The company”, “we” or “us” means Greenshutters Nurseries.
Company address: Greenshutters Nurseries, Fivehead, Taunton, Somerset. TA3 6PT
“The customer” or “you” means any person contracting with the Greenshutters Nurseries for the supply of products or services.
Delivery means delivery by Greenshutters Nurseries’ vehicles or any subcontractor employed by Greenshutters Nurseries directly or indirectly.
These conditions may only be modified by a variation in writing signed on behalf of the company by the Proprietor.
Greenshutters Nurseries will make every effort to deliver on the agreed date, but if for any reason the company is unable to deliver then no liability whether in damages or otherwise for delay of whole or any part of the goods ordered arising from any cause whatsoever.
Delivery by us shall be conditional upon free access to the property. The customer must ensure that access is free from obstacles and that good, accessible roads are available for delivery vehicles to the place of delivery. We will not accept any liability for damages to property caused during delivery. Risk of damage to or loss of the Goods passes to you at the time of delivery to the customer or, if you fail to take delivery at the agreed time, the time when we tried to deliver. If the company, or its agent cannot gain access to the delivery address then additional costs may be incurred. Deliveries are made using large vehicles and it is the customer’s responsibility to inform the company if there may be an access problem. In such cases that delivery, in the opinion of the company is not possible, then the company reserves the right to cancel the order. Delivery vehicles unload using a tail lift. The delivery vehicle must be able to park in an area adjacent to the delivery address. A pallet truck is then used to manoeuvre the products off the tail lift to the kerbside delivery point. The customer, or somebody appointed by the customer, should be at the delivery point to accept the delivery.

The customer fully is made aware that plants are natural products. We aim to give you a clear idea of the nature of the plants we sell. However, you appreciate that plants are natural products and there are inevitably slight variations in size, shape and colour between different specimens. All sizes quoted are approximate. Illustrations, descriptions other information as to particular plants are approximate and for guidance only and where no available picture of the plants is available, we will put a generic picture of an established hedge. The plants that arrive will be individual plants that will take time to grow and form a hedge and are not established hedges.

If the customer is dissatisfied with the product then it must be returned to the company within 5 working days after the complaint has be logged.
