    A very good price, the trees arrived reasonably quickly, well packaged, look to be in good condition and all a good size. Though its to early to tell if they all take and thrive.
    Overall I am very happy with my purchase and experience, I will keep the website address for next time I need trees! Thank you, to the whole team.
