This plant (with others, including Chaenomeles Japonica / Japanese ( Maule's) Quince Tree) arrived a day earlier then anticipated in very good condition. The packaging contained straw rather than unusable polystyrene that impressed me. The plant looks in very good condition and is planted out and doing well. Would certainly think about buying others and more now.
