Thank you very much for the Orange tree complete with flowers and baby oranges. You truly are a Victorian nursery I used to pack all the trees I sent out by rail using straw bundles similar to yours. Actually we used long straw and no outer polythene.We also used twine macramed on the outside to hold the bundle together. There is nothing wrong with your packing. It remided me of the old days. I am 78. Now I have to find a suitable container whivh no doubt will be expensive. Versailles sell them and a pottery in the south of France makes the other tradional type. I was a bit surprised when I visited Kew Gardens, that they did not have one single orange tree in their orangerie. Lovely web site and lovely young orange tree in perfect order.

A few leaves shredded into scrambled egg raise this simple dish to a new level.
