I'm not going to sit here and type about how wonderful we are and that we're the best around. All I wanted to say is that this business is just Dawn and Me - we're as fallible as the next man, but we do really care about what we do ( and we really don't care for vapid corporate marketing hyperbole ). We love our plants and we like making people happy and if we can combine the two we can fall asleep in front of the TV contented each evening. It's not just a job, it's been our way of life for a long long time. We aim to grow lovely plants and send them to you in the best condition we can and if we fail in that we'll do our very best to make amends.

Below I've collected together some of the comments our customers have been kind enough to send to us alongside a picture of one of the plants that they bought.

Dear Dawn and Martin

Thank you for my lovely plants which have just arrived. I found your website when searching for hosta ‘El Nino’ and was delighted to see that you also stock ferns, all at very reasonable prices and with affordable postage. The plants I’ve received look very healthy and I’m sure they’ll grow well. I really value being able to buy the more unusual plants that aren’t available at garden centres.

I was interested to read that you’ve only been selling online for 2 years, so well done for providing such excellent customer service.  I’m sure I will be a repeat customer and will certainly pass your details onto friends.

Best wishes

Hi there
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the anemone wild swan plants (3) which arrived last Saturday.

I was very impressed with the packaging and to find inside such beautiful, healthy plants and all still with some flowers I was amazed and so, so pleased. Exactly what I was looking for. I know they are late flowering, particularly with this unusually warm weather we are having, but I wasn’t expecting such beauties!!

They are looking very happy in their new home already!!

I have just received and unpacked my order and I was extremely impressed not only with  the excellent quality of the plants but also for the superb way they were packaged, ensuring their arrival in perfect condition.  I have ordered plants on line before but you top them all, so congratulations and very many thanks.
I only found your site through looking for Aster “Rosa Erfullung” and  am so glad that I discovered your site.  You deserve every success.
One very, very satisfied customer.

Good evening

The plants arrived yesterday. They are beautiful.

I see from your covering letter that you are just starting your internet business. If you continue like this you are
assured success. Not only are the plants lovely but the packaging and delivery time couldn’t be bettered. Your
prices are very good too!

I shall be browsing your site in the coming weeks and will no doubt be ordering from you again.

Hi Dawn and Martin,

Just a quick note to thank you for the plants you sent yesterday. This is the first time I’ve
ordered plants online and I was so impressed with how you packed them and the quality of the plants
themselves. I’m really pleased, they look great.
Kind regards

Hello Dawn

Plants arrived this morning, to say we are impressed is putting it mildly- we are delighted with them
– thank you for a terrific service. The
Bergenias are now safely installed in a border at a housing development in Oxford.
