Our Feedback
The order arrived safely this afternoon and after a break in the wet weather we have been having all morning my husband planted everything in the garden. Many thanks for your assistance and look forward to the benefits in the autumn hopefully. We look forward to dealing with you again in the future as our local garden centre cannot supply items which we have obtained from yourselves and are also more expensive. We wish you all a very Happy Christmas and New Year.
