    Delivered as good plants

    Very well packaged and plants in excellent condition. Have yet to see them "blossom" and this will probably not be until next year. So far well pleased with the purchase and good service received.

    Strong and healthy plant, doing well in a south facing border. I am impressed by the packaging as it is purpose made and recyclable. Prompt delivery meant all my plants were still damp. Good labels.
