Packaging not good enough for plug plants. Many plants damaged in transit. Will not use again unless this is improved as a waste of money. Such a shame as very good company.

Obviously we are not into the flowering season yet but up to this point delivery and initial quality has been good. Plants have been 'potted' on in the greenhouse and despite the unusually protracted cooler spring, I have had no losses. Hopefully this should make for a good display in summer.

I find it easy to order plants and usely they are of good quality but the offer of the mystery plants as I found out from last year is a joke ,if you order several boxes ie 8 boxes they were all the same so when I found out it was going to be the same this year I cancelled 5 boxes.

All plants received were in a satisfactory condition but would have like more information on delivery dates. I also ordered, at the same time, Geranium Regal mixed and I am still awaiting delivery. VERY DISAPPOINTED.
