Posting Schedule for Christmas 2020

Here are my current recommended last ordering dates for delivery by Christmas 2020.

If you order by the date given below for your country/region, I will guarantee to have your item(s) in the post by the Royal Mail’s last recommended posting date for Christmas. Delivery time is not, however, guaranteed and this year more than ever before I strongly recommend not leaving your order until the last possible moment!

2020 has been my busiest year ever, every month, and this continues into the pre-Christmas period. Many things – my pumpkins, pine cones and pears for example – are selling out as quickly as I can make them, so please don’t leave your order expecting to come back for something later.

If I receive a large quantity of orders I may have to move the dates below forward, and you risk being disappointed if you haven’t placed your order.

On top of that, of course deliveries are liable to be affected by Coronavirus-related absences and necessary social distancing measures within the Royal Mail and the postal services in other countries. Please see the Royal Mail’s Service Updates page for current information on UK and international deliveries.

If a fixed delivery date is really important to you, please contact me and we can look into a guaranteed service.

Please always read my full Terms and Conditions.

I will continue to process your order in the usual timescales, but note that I will not be posting any items between 21st and 29th December inclusive, and the Royal Mail’s delivery schedule will be affected by Christmas and New Year Bank Holidays.

However, please note that if you have a question about a pattern or any other query, I will not be able to answer your questions whilst I’m offline between 21st and 29th December inclusive.
