The plants arrived and were smaller than expected in the plug tray. I opened them within 10 mins of arriving. The tray had not been kept upright in transit and all plants had fallen out of the container and were loose at one end. I have had to try to replant in a larger plug tray I had and am trying to revive them before planting on in the ground. So far only around 6 out of 24 look like they will survive. This is the first time I bought live plants like this and it will be the last if they arrive in this state. I expected the plants would be ready to plant straight into the ground without having to try and get them to grow first. I feel that I may as well have tried from seed without paying for live plants. Unless they sort out the packaging better and dispatch plants that are ready To plant I would not recommend

Much the same as above. Good strong plants and great value for money. Certainly recommend to other people.
