                              INCLUDING BULBS TO FLOWER THIS AUTUMN
             Because of their habit of growth – usually coming into leaf or flower before late October –
           these bulbs MUST be despatched early. In order that these bulbs reach you in time for planting,
                  please use the order form No. 1. Plant the bulbs immediately they are received.
                   Bulbs from this section cannot be sent with items from pages 7-35.

                                  TERMS OF BUSINESS
The placing of an order implies acceptance of the terms of sale, delivery and warranty shown
                                         in this list.
ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF ORDERS. Due to the high costs involved, we regret we are unable to
acknowledge orders except where an item is unavailable or when accompanied by a s.a.e.
DESPATCH DATES. Unless we are particularly requested to meet a specific deadline, we despatch
‘Summer’ orders starting in the last week of August; ‘Autumn’ orders starting in mid September. Certain
items marked ● are not available until October. Other items on orders containing these will be delayed until
then. If separate despatch is required please treat as two separate orders. In all cases, we despatch in strict
rotation according to the date of receipt, and continue until all orders are despatched: it is therefore to your
advantage to order as soon as possible after the receipt of this catalogue.
DESPATCH CHARGE. This is levied on actual value of bulbs despatched to one address in one parcel. All
parcels must be signed for. If you are liable to be ut please give us an alternative address - work, neighbour
etc., or a safe place to leave the parcel.
● Central UK; £5.70 will be added.
● Scotland (Highlands & Islands) N Ireland & other off shore islands; Please ask as it depends
upon the weight of the parcel. We will try and keep costs as low as possible.
● EU CUSTOMERS, including Channel Islands. Parcels will be sent airmail post and charged at cost.
Please pay by Mastercard/Visa or Sterling draft. Please phone for quotation if required.
MINIMUM ORDER. Although there is no order too small for us to handle, we regret that rising costs make
it prohibitive to sell less than the minimum number printed beside each bulb in the catalogue, nor do we offer
5 at half the price of 10, 15 at half the price of 30 etc.
METHOD OF PAYMENT. Payment may be made by cheque (payable to Broadleigh Gardens). Postal
Order, Cash, our own Gift Tokens (we regret we cannot accept National Garden Gift Tokens), also our
own Credit Notes. Please return Credit Note or quote the number when claiming. Mastercard/Visa and
Debit Cards: we can accept payment by these; please fill in the section on the order form. Orders can be
telephoned using our 24-hour Answerphone and quoting account numbers etc .
ONLINE STORE. Our online store is the easiest way to order and uses the secure Barclaycard payment site.
COMPLAINTS. Should there be any cause for complaint, please write within seven days of receipt of the
package. We cannot guarantee flowering, which depends on horticultural conditions, but we believe that all
bulbs and plants despatched by us are fine, healthy stock.
COLLECTION OF ORDERS. Orders may be collected only if prior notice is given and collection made
between 9-a.m. and 4-p.m. Monday to Friday. The Nursery is not open at weekends.
SUBSTITUTIONS. It is really impossible to forecast exactly what customers will wish to buy and so ensure
adequate stocks of everything. We do our best as we wish to give absolute satisfaction, but we reserve the right
to vary the items in Collections at any time.

VALUE ADDED TAX. This is included at the rate of 17.5% in all prices quoted in this catalogue. Should the
rate change during its life, we reserve the right to alter our prices.

                   This catalogue covers the period May to November 2010 only.
                                All previous lists hereby cancelled.
