    Disappointed. Bought many plants from D&E and they have all been superb. Unfortunately this one seems quite brittle and was crushed at the bottom of the box. Most of the stems had become detached and it didn’t recover.

    Hi John
    Thank you for taking the time to review all the plants you ordered. Please accept my sincere apologies with this one that didn’t make the grade. These are notorious for being brittle and being an awful plant to wrap. We do try hard with them and hope that with the new box design we are switching too shortly this will be a thing of the past, as it is such a lovely plant. We have now refunded you for this one.
    All the best
    Laura
