    This is my 2nd order of same shrubs in order to make a hedge. All shrubs have arrived safely. Plants look very healthy with decent root structure. Have planted out my first batch and they look happy.

    These are good value for money! Would buy again from this company. No problems. Plants arrived when they stated.
