Hoping for the best!

Reviewed 26th September 2016 by Jackie Charman

Arrived beautifully packed as usual but the plants were very spindly and sad. I have fed and watered and am hoping for the best but so far not a lot of growth.

Very healthy substantial plug plants

These arrived very well packed and protected. The plug plants are large and well established. I got them straight into the ground and look forward to a fantastic display!
