Live Plants

Most of our plants are imported from the Far East but some are grown in our greenhouse.
Plant stocks are constantly changing. If you require information on current stocks please e-mail us.

We cannot mail order live plants at the moment due to Plant Passport regulations. To do this we have to become a Plant Passport Issuer which comes at a cost.
We are registered to sell plants from the shop.
This is yet another crazy bit of regulation forced on the aquatic industry.
