Although the order did not arrive in one lot - plants grow at their own pace - this was not a problem for me as it gave me time to pot them up. Only one plant was unavailable and one plant didn't make it so pleased overall.
Packing was very good and no plants were damaged in transit. Is it possible to recycle the plastic though?
