Really happy with this palm and the Peace Lily I bought. They arrived quickly and in excellent condition - I am over the moon with the care information for the plants, and I&39;m hoping that I manage to keep these plants alive! I would recommend this website, especially if you are like me and do not have a car to bring large plants home in!

I ordered 4 plants biggest of them being this palm. I received all of my plants very well packed and in good condition. Plants are beautiful and just as featured on pictures. They really are excellent specimens. I found shopping on your website very easy and customer friendly. I especially liked being able to select plants according to their need for light conditions. Very impressed by the whole experience. Well done!

Beautiful Palm

I received my palm this morning as arranged by telephone (nice touch). It was extremely well packed and seemed none worse for the journey to rural Anglesey. I'm sure it's going to look stunning in our new (shady) sunroom.

Very nice palm tree

Just took delivery of a 160cm specimen in a self-watering pot. It arrived expertly and safely packaged, and very well pre-planted in the pot. The palm itself is in perfect condition and spot on 160cm from floor to the tips at the top. I'm delighted with it!

Fantastic specimen
