  1. HEALTHY PLANT WITH LOVELY FLOWERS

    Posted by Corinne Hall on 14th May 2021

    THIS PLANT ARRIVED REALLY HEALTHY LOOKING, AND I PLANTED IT OUT EASILY. IT HAS BEEN FLOWERING FOR A WHILE NOW, AND I ACTUALLY MOVED IT WITH NO PROBLEM. IT IS GLOWERING AWAY, AND IS SUCH A GREAT LOOKING PLANT. PLANTERS PATCH PACK THEIR PLANTS WELL, UNLIKE PLANTS I ORDERED FROM TESSELAAR THEY SEND HEALTHY SPECIMENS, THAT GROW WELL. I NEVER ORDER FROM ANYONE ELSE NOW.
