Where did you get £8.25? P&P is £4.30

Definitely showing £8.25 at checkout, £4.30 for the 'free' plants and £3.95 postage. Voted cold 'cos it is not 'free' as they state in the link.

I get £8.25 too...its adding postage ontop

Indeed but you can order more than one lot and so the price drops.

I've just bought 3 lots (72 plants) for £16.85 which works out at just over 23p per plant - a real bargain even if they turn out to be large plugs.

yeah I got that price too says 24 free lavender plants. But adds £4.30 to the basket then you have to pay £3.95 postage on top of that unless I'm doing something wrong. (likely)

Is there a voucher code to get it free?

No, you're right. It's misleading. It meant to be only £4.30 for P&P but now they charge 4.30 + P&P. When I bought it a few days ago it was only £4.30 but link disappeared from the Guardian web site so I couldn't put it on the HUKD than.

It is still mis-leading, the link definitely says you only pay postage. Still a good price depending on the size of the plugs, something else they don't mention, plugs or plants??

I'm not sure. They got me on a "24 Free" bit so couldn't care to read the rest. It takes a long time to be delivered ( judging on my previous experience with them)

your link still doesn't give free postage my friend

Here you go!

You have to buy through the Guardian Offer link on this page.

I Googled Guardian Van Meuwen Lavender Offer, it took me to this page,

vanmeuwen.com/pla…ers

Under the Lavender offer is a buy it now clicky.

I've just done it and it doesn't charge the P&P twice.

Hope this helps

superb..thanks johnmac got it working now

They don't start the propagation until you order so they tell you they are despatched after two weeks then you wait and wait and wait for them to arrive. If they do arrive you will need a magnifying glass to see what you have got sent. 100% customer satisfaction ??
is there aim, 1% achieved!

Save your money

I agree with both dataload & tinca, bought these last year and unless you have a place in a greenhouse to grow them on you are wasting your money.

Used the Guardian link and it worked fine. Paid £4.30.

Tiny plugs

I've received them. Waste of time....

Tiny plants - I over wintered and they are now reasonably sized. Worth £4, nothing more

...steer clear of this company if you can. Still not received an item after placing the order on 12th May. Quick to take your money, item doesn't turn up when stated, do not reply to emails and very very poor attitude on the telephone. I've asked for a refund, doubt I'll get it but if I do I'll use the money on lottery tickets as you have more chance of success with them!
