Regarding the Coronavirus and Mr Etty's Emporia

May it please you to know that our trusty mechanicals have now completed the task of relocating our entire seed stock from our office to the mews stables attached to my residence, accordingly I am pleased to confirm that Mr Etty's emporia are, once again, both up and running effectively. Our seed supply lines appear to be reasonably secure, although some items may not be available at any given moment.

Please feel free therefore to place a seed order. When doing so, we would earnestly entreat you to send us your order utilizing the electronic mailing system, (I am advised that is the correct address for you to use) so that we can advise you of any item that may prove to be problematic, within said message, we would also ask that you please make us aware of any acceptable alternatives, or indicate whether you would be agreeable to accept our own substitution(s) (I do assure you that we will not send a carrot when you have asked for a courgette!).

Payment may be effected by credit/debit card (although debit cards are preferred) and details may be telephoned through to our office during usual business hours, by PayPal (we will send a PayPal payment request if so desired) or, by bank transfer (appropriate details will be made available on application). We would request that no attempt to make payment either by cheque or postal order be made for the time being please.

If we already have received your order, rest assured that we are currently processing it and will despatch it to you as soon as is possible.

Orders will be sent out via the Post Office and whilst we may not always be able to obtain a proof of postage from that esteemed organisation, our reprographics department have assured me that they will be able to retain a photographic likeness of each package prior to its despatch.

We hope and trust that you will all remain safe, in the bosom of your family, during these troubling times, and in closing I have the honour to affirm that I remain, your most humble and obedient servant.

Sincerely yours,

R Warner
Chief Clerk, for and on behalf of Thomas Etty Esq.

We have a minimum order requirement of £12.50 (excluding carriage).

We have be promising, for quite some while, that we will make arrangements to accept payment by both credit and debit cards. At last we have jumped through the necessary hoops and can now offer this facility. If you would like to pay for your seed order by credit or debit card, please email your order to us, and we will be in touch to let you know how to pay.

We are currently revising and updating our website, which will include us being able to accept payment by credit/debit card and paypal, as well as being able to add more products at short notice.

We now offer discounts for allotment and gardening societies. Full details can be found here.
