Reviewed 31st July 2018 by Nicola

Delighted from start to finish. The plants received were strong and healthy, not at all resembling the tired dried up plants you see on sale everywhere! Great care and thought had been taken in packaging the plants so they arrived in pristine condition. .They filled out beautifully and flowered endlessly. I must have more this year!
