Our Feedback
Invoice Number 24330 Hi, I'm writing to tell you how delighted I am with my recent order of two Kiwi. I was totally blown away at the care that was taken in wrapping the plants (straw) and how moist and healthy the roots were, they arrived in fantastic condition. This is excellent customer service. I work in gardening and have to order plants all the time, I shall order again. What a contrast to recent orders I have made to Thompson & Morgan that took weeks and weeks to arrive and when they did the plants were dead, and the soil around the root in the bag poored out like dry sand. Thank you again.
