Customer Comments


Just had to say how delighted we are with the petunias and pansies we bought from you a few weeks ago. Neither my wife nor I are great gardeners but the resulting display has been just wonderful. Almost all of our neighbours have stopped to comment. We have bought bedding plants elsewhere in the past but never had a display like this.
