No growth, the plant just disappeared! Not sure whether this had something to do with the very late delivery.

Service good however the plant arrived looking like a dead stick although the roots were alive. Sadly it has not grown and is definitely dead. Very dissapointed as it looked lovely in the picture. Not sure the supplier should have sent such a poor specimin especially as the weather was not good at the time.

i feel this is rather an unfair survey as i ordered these plants early in the year and they arrived at the same time as the Beast from the East, Consequently, two withered and died very quickly and the third, which was doing all right but not thriving, has been nibbled by a rabbit so it is destined to be a bit slow! i therefore can't rate it any higher and will probably try again with new plants as they would be a great addition to my border.
