Thank you.

    Never used them myself but I have only heard good reports of them.

    Ditto.  Mature healthy plants, well packaged, delivered when they said they would.

    I rate them very highly. I’ve visited their place and bought plants from them there and online. Never been disappointed. A good range of interesting plants and consistently good quality has been my experience.

    Glad you asked this question dappledshade, I have often looked at their site as they will ship to Europe. They do seem a tad more expensive than many, but as with all things in life, you get what you pay for (usually!).

    another thumbs up from me - both buying online and buying at the nursery. They are expensive but they have plants that are difficult to source elsewhere and they've always been healthy and a good size

    Thanks everyone, great response!
    their delivery charges seem high, but I suppose they can't compete with huge firms like Crocus, otherwise.

    I'm one who can also sing their praises (another delivery due tomorrow!). Excellent plants and communication. I would recommend them highly  to anyone.
