Our seedlings are coming along nicely in the polytunnels, and we are sowing more and more every day, feeling positive and determined to keep up with the extra demand that we’re experiencing. We just want to do our bit and help get as many people as possible growing their own food this season. We wish you all the best and hope that your veggies will help lift your spirits this summer and keep you that little bit more self-sufficient!!
If you have already ordered
No doubt you are keen to get growing asap, but please be patient whilst we are growing your plants – we are expecting to start dispatching in mid/late April when the seedlings will be ready to plant out. We hope to be able to dispatch the majority of orders by the end of May. Of course, the extra demand for plants and the uncertainty of what lies ahead means that we all have to take each day and each new development as it comes, so we’ll be emailing you as often as we can with updates on your delivery so that you have a good idea of when your plants will arrive.
If you need to contact us
Please remember that we are a small team and we’re experiencing a much higher volume of enquiries at the moment. With this in mind, please first check our FAQs page for updates and answers to your queries – if you do still need to contact us, email us at [email protected]
Things are currently operating as normal…
We operate from an organic farm in South Cornwall and due to our remote rural location we set up cloud-based computer systems a number of years ago which allows the majority of our admin and marketing team to work from home.
Our growing team do need to be on the farm to look after your plants, and they have been been advised of the correct process to follow if they feel unwell or experience flu-like symptoms, and we’re all being careful to follow guidelines around hand-washing, social distancing etc. At present, we do not have any reported cases of the Coronavirus at Rocket Gardens.
We deliver with DPD
The majority of our plants are shipped via DPD. We have spoken with DPD and can confirm all delivery and parcel operations are set to continue as normal. If you are concerned about transmission of the virus from signing the handheld device, DPD can still make the delivery and sign the device on your behalf. If drivers deliver to a location where it is known someone has the virus, they will deliver your parcel to a safe place. The drivers will also, where possible use antibacterial wipes to clean hand-held units between signatures.
