The plants you get are strongly grown and will be on average about one year old from rooted cuttings grown for a season -generally in 9cm pots or strong divisions from open ground plants. They will be strong plants and they will NOT be small and recently rooted specimens in plugs. Larger plants, generally in 2 litre pots are a year older.
In the unlikely event that you are dissatisfied with any plants we ask you to take good care of the plant in the interim and return them within one week of delivery and at your expense by first class recorded delivery when we will refund your purchase value. If you receive a plant that is in bad condition when it arrives and when you take it out of the box, contact us immediately and send us a photograph.
