Burnt jelly plant.

This stands out clear above all other Bulbinella.

    Normally a great plant ( I had some last year) however they were packed loosely and 2 of the 4 were partly broken and on their sides in the box

    Hi Richard
    Thankyou for taking the time to review your purchases. I am truly sorry that they were packed loosely by the team. These are very brittle plants and so they should have been packed more thoroughly to prevent as much damage as possible. (we are shifting to a new eco box of our own design soon and so this will stop things like this happening) in the mean time is it possible for you to email us a photo of the damaged plants to info@darcyeverest.co.uk.
    Many thanks
    Laura & Luke

    Very happy, plant has already shot on

  13. Maxine (verified owner)

    Soo happy with this plant. This is usually quite hard to find. The yellow variety is more common. This is a very beautiful, well established little plant. I hope it does well in my care. Thank you.
