Good service really quickly although last year I did complain about plants arriving to dry and shrivelled, which then all died (quite a large cost to me) and somebody did ring up but no follow up so have not re ordered plants from Marshalls. Boring as in Scotland there is not much chance of buying the same quality of plants.
