Service

Service rating : I have ordered plug plants from GD for quite a number of years now but I was very disappointed with the begonias sent me this year.
Product: The plants were sent out too early being very small even for plug plants and there was about 15 plants short of what there should have been.It is obvious that quality control is not what it should be.

Begonia Sahara 100 Plants + 70 FREE

Service
Product

Service rating : In previous years the plants have arrived all jumbled - as though they have been deliberately violently shaken. This time, they were well packed and were all still in their modules.
Product: I have used bedding begonias for years and like the variety of leaf and flower colours - indeed this is how they are described in the booklet. This year, from 340 plants received, there is NOT ONE bronze-leafed plant there.

The problem was with the delivery. The plants were dropped over a six foot fence onto a recyle bin but missed the bin and landed on the gravel upsidedown, even that it said this way up on the box. Approx 1/3 of the plugs were damaged
