Our Feedback
Just to let you know my order of 5 plants arrived safely. I am really pleased with them as I have always wanted the more unusual plants instead of trying to grow from seeds but unfortunately I have not been able to source them within my local area. The service you provided was excellent, the packaging was sturdy, the delivery charge was very fair and they were delivered very quickly. I also appreciated that the plants had been watered well in preparation for their journey. Thank-you so much. Kind regards

Dandelions have a stunning bright yellow flower, which as it turns to seed (which looks like a round ball of silver tufts of fluff) makes a great childrens game, we used to count the number of times it took for us to blow the seeds off to tell the time! (if you allow the wind will happily blow the seeds off for you and it will self seed where it lands).

Often found growing in lawns or wild garden areas.

Taraxacum officinale was originally imported to America as a food crop.  The leaves are often used in salads are have similar characteristics to mustard greens. The flowers are sweet and again can be added to salads adding stunning colour and flavour. They also make good food for many caterpillars.
