  1. Spectacular Silk Tree 4

    We ordered this plant to replace one that had recently died and was very special to us. We are hoping that this new tree will give us as much pleasure as the original which we grew ourselves. First appearances are good, it has settles well. We were impressed by the good standard of service from the order to the well packed tree which arrived in good condition. Only time will tell !

    Our plant was packaged very well, wrapped in straw, and in a sturdy cardboard box.
    It was planted immediately.
    After a week in the ground, it's looking well.
    We've received exactly what was requested and expected.
