Unfortunately unless you live in one of our delivery areas which are predominantly south of the nursery in Worcestershire due to courier height restrictions we will have to cut these plants to reduce height to 175cm, this will have no ongoing damage and the plants will soon replenish. If its essentail you receive the plants at the current heights please contact us prior to purchase to discuss delivery options.
