Beautiful tree came very healthy and well packaged
A lovely healthy little shrub delivered in record time. Looking forward to getting it potted up ready for next year.
My first time to purchase plants online but will definitely do so again. Transaction was easy and communication was great. I ordered a selection of plants and they all arrived safely this morning, well packaged and in good condition. Looking forward to seeing them in the garden. I will definitely be back for more.
I email the shop before buying my new tree as I needed some information to help me decide between the two different types of Japanese Maple tree they have in stock. My email was answered very promptly and with good information which helped me choose the Bloodgood. I am very happy with my little tree and it looks perfect in my space. Also very quick delivery.
Arrived promptly in excellent condition. I look forward to seeing this in leaf next year. Thank you
First time to purchase plants online, so I was apprehensive. One of the plants on our order was in poor shape and I contacted the shop who swiftly arranged a replacement. Delighted with our little Japanese Maple and confident that we will always be well looked after when we purchase from John at the Garden Will defintely buy again. Excellent customer service, thank you!
