Our Feedback
Dear Victoriana Team, After a long wait my Samphire plants have finally arrived and I am so impressed I immediately wanted to order some more. Oh and by the way, thank you for packing all of your plants so well. Even though it is quite frustrating to sieve through all the shredded newspaper and then trying to dispose of it with bits blowing all over the place(especially with bigger plants), your system really works and seems to be the best way of protecting the plants. I have had some bad experience with other garden centres before and actually vowed never to buy plants online again, yet you have really managed to convince me that it can be quite safe. Thank you very much.
