Nice plants, look very healthy,

But I ordered Big Ben.

Reply from the Sarah Raven Team:

"Thank you for your feedback. We are so sorry for the disappointment caused, we unfortunatley experieinced some problems with the 'Big Ben stock, rather than cancelling the orders we took the decision to substitute them with 'Big Tron' which is a very similar variety and identical in height and type. You should have received a letter in with the order explaining this (apologies if you did not), if you would rather have an alternative product or a refund please do contact the customer service team who will assist you further."
