Easy ordering and healthy plants. Good information supplied with plants. All the plants I have ordered from you are still doing well in my garden which with my lack of gardening skills is a testament to how good your plants are.

Very small so I was initially disappointed but now we are in the height of the growing season it seems to be doing well.

This Geranium I was a little disappointed with as it has not been as effusive as I thought it would be and is a bit straggly. Hoping it will come on better next year. Only a few flowers this year.

The service was prompt & informative throughout. Two of the plants are doing ok, I am expecting more from them next year. I lost the third but that was due to my novice gardening skills & a very hot summer!

This amazing plant gives abundant flowers for months on end and fills up the 'Gaps' between earlier flowering plants. It is sublime among roses as it covers their late season 'legs' and when it is finally finished, usually October, just grab the whole of the foliage and with a sharp tug it will be off. It will even set seed and give you some plants to share with friends. Definitely one of my favourites.
