Lovely plants, excellent customer service, will use again. Thank you.
I was expecting the herb plants that I ordered to be really quite small. Imagine my surprise when they arrived, and I found them to be too big for the pots that I had bought for them !!!. Expertly packed and delivered safely, and extremely healthy looking plants. Will come back to Hoos Green again.
