Ordering online is straight forward. Delivery prompt or in accordance with their indications. Plants arrive well packed and healthy.
It is not the first time I have ordered from them and yes, I would recommend them.

These plants were brought on in a greenhouse prior to planting out as in this part of Scotland it is safer not to plant out before the end of May. The plants have been stunning. Once in the border they have grown apace and bloomed and bloomed and bloomed. Loads of lovely flowers for the house and still plenty left outside making my garden look lovely. I did have a lot of breakages because of a few spells of windy weather, but I just cut them and put them in the house! I staked them in advance, because of where I live. They are still going strong as August begins.

Usually whatever I buy from you is brilliant but this has been a difficult year. Only half of the strawberry fool collection survived as did the pale zinnia collection.The tarragon took a long while to get going but is now fine and so is the chenille collection. Your service is always excellent.
