Our Packaging

Our packaging is 100% compostable. We use corn starch packing chips to fill the box and support the plants or corrugated card. Along with corn starch bags to line the box if the plants are damp. Our courier, DPD, have a carbon neutral commitment – you can read more about this HERE. For more details on our good environmental practises visit our page ‘Woottens Green Policy’

If you order plants that are usually dispatched at different times of the year, we may contact you to discuss splitting your order. This may incur additional postal charges; however we will attempt to keep costs at a minimum for customers.

Please note you can only combine orders going to the same address at the same time of year.
