  • MeadowMakers guarantee

    We make every effort to package your plants in an environmentally friendly way, ensuring their quality. We don't use plastics, unlike any other nursery we know.

    If your plants arrive damaged sufficiently that you believe they should be replaced, take a photo and email

    We offer a no-quibble replacement or refund.

    We just ask you to remember that it's OK if your plants do look a bit battered, bruised, or blotchy. Wildflowers never look perfect that's their charm. We have grown them for long enough, with enough care, that they'll soon bounce back when you plant them. And come again year after year.
