"I was trying to place an order for 5 camellias as part of your 37.50 offer which included carriage & packaging but I was being charged for the carriage - but I did ring and your Sally was very helpful and solved the problem for me, thank you"
"found the site very hepfulwith the description of plants and shrubs, also very clear instructions regarding planting and aftercare"
"Thank you for the beautifully grown and skilfully packed plant which arrived safely on Friday evening. Friday had been a grim, frustrating day, but how my spirits soared when the box arrived – aren’t plants wonderful! Many thanks.

Landscaping a Manor House in Devon
Burncoose were asked to put together a large scale woodland garden with rhododendrons, camellias and azaleas as the main centrepiece. The desire was for a quick and immediate effect so everything was to be specimen sized from the outset. In addition extra large evergreen plants were to be used as a backdrop to give a more immediate effect and additional shelter.
In time these sacrifice plants will no longer be needed and can be removed.
The delivery required 3 separate lorries and simply placing out of the plants took most of the day. Part of the planting was at a new entrance at the bottom of the park a good half mile from the house. In a more windy location nearing the top of the hill a massive hydrangea hedge was created and more choice plants were used in the borders nearer the house.
Rabbits and deer will be a problem in this location but it is hoped that most of the plants are already large enough to escape serious damage.
Once the planting near the house was complete, Burncoose moved onto plant the rest of the garden - see here for more pictures.
