Thank you very much for the Orange tree complete with flowers and baby oranges. You truly are a Victorian nursery I used to pack all the trees I sent out by rail using straw bundles similar to yours. Actually we used long straw and no outer polythene.We also used twine macramed on the outside to hold the bundle together. There is nothing wrong with your packing. It remided me of the old days. I am 78. Now I have to find a suitable container whivh no doubt will be expensive. Versailles sell them and a pottery in the south of France makes the other tradional type. I was a bit surprised when I visited Kew Gardens, that they did not have one single orange tree in their orangerie. Lovely web site and lovely young orange tree in perfect order.

Supplied as compost block grown plants.SOLD OUT UNTIL SEPTEMBER 2015
Utterly hardy these produce pretty yellow flowers with an orange yellow centre - mostly single but occasionally double, this is the ultimate cottage garden plant!
Sometimes known as common Primrose, English Primrose, Blue Primrose or Culver keys.
Flowering can start soon after Christmas and continue right through to May. Its not unusual to see the pretty flowers appear from melting snows - these really are tough!
This variety of primrose was voted the county flower of Devon in 2002 (a poll carried out by the charity Plantlife).
