    The plant arrived well packed and in good order. Repotted within a day or two and immediately began flowering.

    Looking to replant into a border and propagate with cuttings to hide fencing etc.

    Happy customer.

    Arrived in suitable box, straw was packed around my shrub for protection. As described. Fast service and good price.

    Tips of leaves were little dry, so would I be if id travelled across the sea without a drink! Stood in water for few hours then planted out. Few days passed now, and showing new growth and looking much healthier.
