Service rating : plants arrived very quickly, sooner than I had expected
Product: Plants were in good condition but were all with green foliage, in previous years Organdy begonias have been available in small plugs of 170 and these have had bronze foliage as well as green. a little disappointed that this years variety is all green foliage

01-Apr-2015
Service rating : not as good a usual

plants arrived earlier than expected
Product: I have purchased Begonia plug plants from GD for a number of years and been very satisfied but this year the Begonia Sarhara that arrived consisted of large straggly leaves as though growth had been forced and are not growing as well as other varieties in previous years nor are they the more compact growth as Organdy. I was very disappointed with the plants this year and are considering looking elsewhere next year.

Service rating : Your system works well except for below comments
Product: However.............Once again I remind you I am a Scottish customer and we are at least 3/4 weeks later than you lucky guys in the south. Early delivery of mini plugs means in house growing on(and by that I don't mean Greenhouse) for at least 4 weeks. By the way it is snowing today (1st April-no not April Fool!) Can you not schedule your deliveries geographically?

I am very disappointed that the mystery plants I ordered have not yet arrived. I have telephoned you on 3 occasions and promised that I should receive them in the next TWO days. They have still not arrived and I am having second thoughts about ordering with you again in the future. Just what is going on. Where are they.

Service rating : Order given and received promptly
