    We received our latest order on time in the new 100% recycled packaging. The plants arrived on time and in prime condition. They were planted immediately, and we are expecting them to compliment our existing collection so that we have another colourful floral alpine display this year.

    I love calceolaria, always receive very happy plants, these thrive and are dripping in flowers for a long time, but I seem to order more each year as they don’t always survive the winter in my Northern Scotland garden – however, i never protect them and plant to do so this year
