Christmas 2018If you would like your trees dispatching to arrive for Christmas (in the week commencing 17th December), please answer the relevant question at the checkout to indicate that your order is for Christmas.
When your trees arrive they should be kept somewhere cool - e.g. outside (under cover), in a shed or garage. In these locations, they will be fine without watering for 1 - 2 weeks.

Orders placed after the above time must be ordered with Express Delivery. The absolute last date and time for placing UK orders to be delivered before Christmas is 10 AM on Monday 18th December.
The final date and time for placing orders for International Delivery is 10 AM on Thursday 13th December.
Please note, no tree deliveries will be dispatched between 24th December and 3rd January.
You may choose to have each truffle tree individually gift bagged with a tag (please supply greeting at the checkout) or packed ready for planting. All trees come with a planting booklet. Please let us know if you require more than one with your order.
Truffle trees can be sent to customers in the UK and throughout the EU. We do not send trees outside of the EU.
We can also send truffle tree gift vouchers by email if you would like to give trees as a present to be delivered at the recipient’s convenience. These include the cost of UK standard delivery.
The English Truffle Company accepts no liability for truffle tree losses due to unsuitable or inadequate planting and growing conditions.
1The trees are all certified as being inoculated with the appropriate truffle fungus. They will however, only produce truffles under optimum conditions – if the tree remains healthy, is watered and the soil conditions are right then you may produce truffles.
