Thank you very much for a rapid delivery!I have had a bad experience with mail ordered plants before, which were not good quality to start with and died within a week of their arrival but this time I was really impressed with the quality of the plants ordered; as the weather was not suitable to plant them, they have been sitting in my garage for three weeks now and they are producing lots of shoots and leaves and look really strong.They are worth every penny! I will definately recommend your nursery as I was so impressed with your service.It's a shame I did'nt find your website before.
