Customer Reviews

Beautiful Palm

on Thursday, 13th April 2017

5/5

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
