  1. Stunning 5

    These arrived quickly with buds & plenty of roots and well packaged. After soaking in a bucket of water the buds started to unfurl as soon as I planted in soil. So pleased with the quality, they already look like trees as they are so tall. At around £5 each, I will buy more. Thank you.
