Very healthy plants. I buy most of my plants from Marshalls.

Have given 1 star as no star rating is not available. Bought 3 Lemon Verbena when they arrived they were dead or only just alive, they have since dead. They were sent out just before the Bank Holiday weekend and were in the post over the weekend which did not help them. I have contact Marshalls 4 times and never had a reply. They were given until yesterday to respond or I would take further action. I still have not heard and will on Monday send a 7 day notice prior to County Court summons being issued. Then I will take them to court. They do not deserve to be trading.
