Needed pruning before sending
Review submitted by a


On 04-Oct-2016 the supplier responded:
Thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback; I'm sorry to hear that the plants arrived somewhat dishevelled after their journey. It is always a shame when the couriers do not take note of the 'Live Plants, This Way Up' printing on each box. The cardboard insert and keeping the boxes upright generally ensures most deliveries are trouble free. If there are any problems that you feel have been exacerbated by this upheaval during transit please do not hesitate to contact us again.

With regard to the Potentilla plants, these will have been pruned in April/May but it has been a really good growing season for them and they have somewhat ran away with themselves. We would recommend giving them a good prune at the same time next year.

I hope that this helps somewhat. If there is anything else at all we can help with please do get in touch.

The quality of some of the hedge plants were not good.The White and Orange I feel could have been better in some of the plants
Review submitted by a


On 29-Apr-2016 the supplier responded:
Thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback. I'm sorry that you felt the packing and the quality could have been better. I'm afraid I don't quite understand the first part of your feedback regarding the packing. There should have been a cardboard insert to hold the plants in place and additionally, a piece of card should have separated the two coloured varieties of Potentilla.

With regard to their quality, I would be happy to investigate this for you; if you could send through an image or two of the plants along with a description of the problem to the email address below, we will look into this and come back to you swiftly.

Ordered two plants, neither look really vigorous, one is under advertised size and a bit sorry for itself
Review submitted by a


On 18-Mar-2016 the supplier responded:
Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. I apologise that the parcels were mis-sorted at the hub and I'm very sorry to hear that one of the species of the range your ordered did not meet your expectations.

With regard to the plants being up-ended in transit you have done the right thing in getting them in the ground with haste. If though, there are any problems with them in the first season do not hesitate to contact us again.

I must admit, when compared with the likes of Hebe and Box, Potentilla do not look as impressive at this time of year but will develop into strong, healthy plants over the coming year. They certainly should, though, have been at least to the specified height and for this reason I have arranged for a 10% refund for these plants to be credited to the card you originally paid with.

I hope that this helps somewhat. If you have anything else at all you would like to discuss please contact us using the details below.
