The first plant I ordered arrived in a very poor state, already in flower & nearly over, not what I expected so I rang & complained they were very apologetic & another plant was sent, this plant was of better quality but very small & when it eventually flowered it was very small & not like the others I had already purchased. For the price I am very disappointed at the quality & think they need to have some sort of quality control to avoid bad feed back.

Very very poor plant ,none of the delphiniums I bought from yourselves did any good and as I said at the time ,I bought them to put on a good show whilst my house was on the market.....I replaced the plants in the end

I ordered 3 of these and 2 have done well but not this one and this was already a replacement so I guess it's something in my soil.

Beautifully packed but very small and weedy plant perhaps it will be better next year if the slugs don't get there first
