What does Gee Tee charge for delivery?
We use reputable carrier companies to deliver your bulbs. We charge £4.99 (plus VAT) for UK mainland deliveries, regardless of order size. Considering just how heavy bulbs can be, we believe this represents great value.
Unlike some mail order companies, we do not add any costs to our prices to make delivery charges look more attractive.
For deliveries to the Highlands and Islands, and to Northern Ireland, we may have to charge extra for carriage (see below). We will calculate the weight of your order and let you know, but we will only charge the cost price.
When will my order be delivered?
Orders for summer flowering bulbs and bulbs in the green will be dispatched from mid February.
Our main autumn season will begin in early August 2016, when our spring flowering bulbs start to arrive. We spend this time bringing in and preparing our stocks from Holland and our local bulb fields, before starting to dispatch orders from the first week in September. We do this on a first come, first served basis through to the end of the spring flowering bulb season in December.
During our busiest periods, we aim to process orders within a maximum of 21 days of receipt. You’ll find that your order is usually supplied much faster than this, particularly once the bulb season is in full swing.
Once your order has been sent out, we’ll send you an email to let you know it’s coming.
Can I have my order sent to another address?
Yes. When you reach our online checkout, you can specify an alternative delivery address – it’s really handy for when you want your bulbs to be delivered to work, or to a friend’s house.
At the checkout, you can also give us specific delivery instructions. Perhaps you’d prefer your bulbs left in the porch, or in your garage, or your house is difficult to find. Just let us know and we’ll leave your bulbs where you want them to be.
Can I have bulbs delivered to the Highlands and Islands of the UK?
We can deliver to addresses off the UK mainland, such as the Channel Islands, Isle of Wight, Isle of Man, Isles of Scilly, Shetland, Orkney, Western Isles and Northern Ireland – but it may cost a little bit more. If you get in touch and tell us exactly where you want your bulbs to go, we’ll give you a price straight away. We’re not able to deliver abroad at the moment, but anywhere inside the UK will be fine.
