  1. Arrived in good condition but pot-bound 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Aug 2019

    Plant arrived healthy and in good condition. It was well packed and protected. However I was surprised to find it pot bound. Thankfully, having prised the roots apart and potted it on it is growing away well.

  2. Really pretty tubular bells 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Feb 2019

    I love this one. Arrived well packed and looked healthy. One week on and it is really going well. Will be planting this one in my herb bed as I don’t have this type of flower in there at the moment. Can’t wait to see it in bloom attracting bees and my favourites, butterflies. Thank you Hooksgreen.
