Good morning Just wanted to say thank you for my recent order of 200 Heath Pearlwort. It arrived very quickly, exactly when you said it would, and well packaged. The plant quality was excellent, with all the plants having good root systems and looking very healthy. I don't normally write when I receive an order from a company, but felt that you really deserved it as I was very impressed by your nursery. Thank you
Mrs D Hackett, Belper
