Plant is doing really well. It was beautifully packaged although it is difficult with Royal Mail to know when they are due to arrive. Some other plants producers use parcel force or other carriers who often email a deliver day or time.

Sadly the delivery system doesn't work for me - the seedlings all ended up sitting for a couple of days before I could unbox them, most went mouldy and none survived. No judgement on the quality and I understand the benefit of the system that sends when the plants are ready but it doesn't work for someone who travels regularly. If there was a way to pick delivery windows that would be great, otherwise will have to go back to garden centres.
