Customer service needs to be improved. Twice, over two days we were told they would ring us back, they did not, we had to ring them. Their three to five day delivery time should be looked at.

The product is good but the plants arrived well shaken up, with some without much of their potting soil. Parcel force obviously did not adhere to the instructions on the boxes.
