"“The most excellent plant centre”
We drove 70 miles to visit this excellent centre. Prior to leaving we phoned with a query and they emailed a photo of the Jasmine plants we needed. Fantastic service. The selection is good and this family run business is well worth a visit. And great espresso! "
"Just wanted to thank you for the speedy delivery of 5 plants /shrubs to our address in Scotland. I didn’t expect it to be so easy. Thanks so much"
