Review submitted by a

On 08-Apr-2017 the supplier responded:
Thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback, it's always appreciated and really does help when looking for areas to improve. I'm sorry to hear that the plants were not labelled and I'm currently in discussions with our Nursery Team to improve this particular aspect of our service; there are a number of ideas on the table and hopefully this will lead to easier identification of plants which are available in a variety of colours such as Potentilla, Escallonia and Pyracantha.

We have a number of different sized boxes so I will certainly pass on your comments to the Dispatch Team to ensure that the appropriate ones are used when packing smaller plants.

If there is anything else at all with which we can help please do not hesitate to contact us again.
