Customer Testimonial

“I just wanted to thank your staff for their help on Thursday evening.
I was given help on selecting appropriate plants and pots for my balcony, the prices were very reasonable, and one of your staff even delivered my items that same evening to my home. Fantastic service.”
– Mr L Brophy, Leyland
