"I expected problems with a UK company but there were none...however, the plants are yet to come."
"Just a quick note to thank you for this delivery of Magnolia and Cercis. Superb plants and amongst the very best packing I have seen in 40 plus years of mail order plant buying – not easy to achieve with some big brittle shrubs to handle."
"Plants received this morning, beautifully packed and in perfect condition. Thank you. My best wishes.
