All six buxus balls that were delivered were the same size and really healthy. Based on shopping around in gardens centres and DIY stores that I've done, the quality of these was far superior.

The buxus plants were very healthy looking and in good shape. However, a plastic pot had split and compost was lying at the bottom of the cardboard box.

The buxus ball came well packaged. I haven't given the purchase 5* as the item is not in as good a condition as one that I purchased elsewhere. However, I am going to let it grow more and hopefully the new shoots when cut into shape will look good.
