Just a quick email to thank you for the nice healthy plants and your efficient service. Your management of the whole process made our big purchase so much easier and streamlined. Regards Bruce  May 2018

Have Just sneaked outside with torch - the plants have indeed been delivered - courier must have left them by our garage garden - all in tip top orde as expected. Can i just say the plants are the best rhodos i have seen for a VERY long time, and represent very good value for money- and in saying that, I do have some Ornamental plant experience in my working life (now happily retired and just turned 70). In the 1970’s and early 80’s, I worked for Duncan and Davies nurseries for around 8 years; part of the time as R & D manager where we imported small quantities of new varieties to bulk up; (I remember importing the 7 dwarf series Yaks for example) Ross Heveldt July 2017 

Thank you for the delivery of the Rhododendrons. We were not here but a nice surprise when we got home.  Thank you so much for all your help. It has been just great to do business with you. I will definitely recommend you to my friends. Cheers Anna July 2016

You are the fastest and most specific responder of any supplier I know! Shelagh Mooney May 2015
The Rhodos arrived this morning - they look wonderful - they are certainly healthy and keen to get their feet into my garden. I found you to be so helpful. You really were! It is not often that people call and answer questions and spend the extra effort in helping others obtain just what they are looking for. You certainly were clear, communicated well about delivery times, and above all helpful in every way. Annie Smith, March 2015
Thank you so much for your help and certainly to deliver such healthy plants.
We have been delighted to receive two consignments from you in the past month, each of 6 rhododendrons,   In both instances, your plants have travelled 538 km totally reliably within two days - arriving still moist, with foliage gratifyingly undamaged and just begging to be let out of their cartons to start new lives.   Thank you for the considerable time you spend ensuring that your rhodos reach us in such pristine condition.   We get many enquiries from friends as to where we obtain such healthy plants and have no compunction in passing on your contact details to these good people. Thank you too for your totally upfront honouring of discount vouchers and freight costs.   Such is not always experienced with online purchases.   Living, as we do in Wanaka, online shopping is frequent, but we do not always benefit from the exemplary service which you provide.   It is not everyone who runs an online business who recognises the importance of basic issues. Beyond such things may we please say how much we have appreciated your advice on plant selection for varied environments and your willingness to comment on other supporting issues.   We find your website a tremendous source of information on every aspect of rhododendron propagation and growth.
We are certain to be back to you before long.Very best wishes, Jo and Richard Wilton (Wanaka), Feb 2015
