    Smaller plant than expected

    I bought one many years ago which got bigger and bigger however I think it got waterlogged over the winter and didn’t look happy. The replacement which recently arrived looks slightly different not so dense although I maybe am not comparing plants with the same level of maturity. The new plant arrived in good condition and I look forward to another stupendous result in years to come.

    A bit smaller than I thought they would be but what I received was of good quality

  4. Mark (verified owner)

    Looked like a mini version of the product photo, it’s wilted a bit since being planted, although I’m hoping it’s just the freakish weather we’ve been having lately
