Questions & Answers:
Q. Are your straw hay bales suitable for Straw Bale Gardening and are they seed / weed free?
A. Yes, our straw bales are farm bales suitable for Straw Bale Gardening. Regarding being seed or weed free this is hard to say for sure. We did speak to our supplier and they said that their bales are likely to have a small amount wheat seed, as the upper wheat stalk can contain a small amount of seeds internally when harvested. He also added that this is a common issue for virtually all farm straw bales and not just applicable to his stock.

A. We only sell full-sized straw bales at the moment. For smaller amounts of straw please consider our straw bags.

A. Yes. orders can be delivered any weekday you like, please mention your preferred day for delivery in the comments section when placing your order on the website. If your party or event is on Saturday its best to request a Thursday delivery so that we will have an extra day to deliver in the rare event there is a delay.
We usually deliver our straw bale orders with a third party courier and therefore we cannot specify what time of the day the order will be delivered. We can request or suggest a delivery time period with the courier, but your order could still be delivered at any time on the delivery day. Usually, an afternoon delivery is much easier for the courier.
To be sure of stock availability its best to place your order one week before you need it, though we can deliver at much shorter notice. We can even do next day deliveries for urgent orders if needed.
Same day deliveries of straw bales may be possible, but this at our discretion as we may be too busy at the time. For same day deliveries please email us before hand to see if its possible.
New stock of straw bales normally arrives at our Sydney store on Thursday or Friday each week.
