    The plant arrived quickly and in perfect condition. I have not ordered a plant before by post but as I could not find the item locally decided to take a chance, I am so glad I did the plant was packed well in straw I can make use of that later, the plant was very healthy and quite tall. I am very pleased I took the plunge and would definitely order again from this garden center.

    The tree arrived beautifully packed in straw so no damage. Condition seems very good and it has now been planted. We look forward to seeing it grow.
