Good value. Delivered in less than 24 hours.
Lovely plant. Amazing price. Prompt delivery. Thank you Thegardenshop.
I was delighted to receive my gingko plant today. It is a good size and appears to be well rooted.
My last gingko died because of exposure to strong winds while we were away from home for an extended period. Which is why I was pleased to find this one at a reasonable cost.
