Description

Most are forms of the garden hybrid P. x fraseri, with glossy dark green adult foliage, and variable red tinted young leaves, especially as they just unfold. 'Red Robin' is one, a choice form with eye-catching juvenile growth the colour of sealing wax, similar to a pieris. This is sometimes caught by late spring frosts, and some shelter is advisable. Plants enjoy a sunny or partially shaded position in moist but well-drained soil.

    A good price for some nice red robins but a few were broken and some in poor condition. Delivery is very quick and the service is great.
    In reflection I would prefer to pay a bit more per item and get to pick healthy ones from the local garden centre. Did contact with issue but no response.

    Ordered 40 plants to create a new hedge. Plants arrived within a few days in good condition. Some were a lot bigger than I expected, now planted, watered and looking very healthy. Very happy with plants and service. Will definitely use this company again.

    I ordered 40 but I received a couple of spares. They all look healthy and arrived in a timely fashion. My first order with this company but I would use them again and I would recommend them.

    All arrived in excellent packaging and the plants looked very healthy. Had them planted over a week now and look to be thriving.

  8. Good sized shrubs at low price 4

    The Photina Red Robin are a decent size at a low price. The only disappointment is the carrier DPD. They e-mailed advising delivery would be Mon 17/07/17, I followed the link to rearrange for Tues 18/07/17 which was accepted but the delivery actually took place on Wed 19/07/17. By this time the shrubs were wilting. Fortunately, a good watering has fixed the problem but DPD are not to be trusted.

  10. Strong healthy looking plants 5

    Strong healthy looking plants. The plants I received are considerably taller than the given size of 20 - 30 cm. Well packaged and arrived quickly and well watered.

    Hoping for a nice hedge / screen around a heating oil tank do Just have to wait and see how they do.
