    I was looking for a small bamboo for a gap in a part-shady border - the website was easy to navigate and I found just what I was looking for. It was delivered within a week and I was very impressed with the packing - it was nestled on a thick bed of shredded bamboo and covered with the same - it was received in perfect condition. It looks beautiful in the border. Very happy and definitely recommend.

    Havingp previously purchased some of these Bamboos 7 months earlier. Found we needed two more. Hence a new order which arrived well packed. The Bamboos were bigger than the previous ones. Very healthy and in A1 condition.

    If you need Bamboos give these a try you won’t be disappointed.
