Small plants in good condition - excellent value
Member Name: zajonc
Advantages: Excellent value; healthy plants
Disadvantages: Long wait for delivery; poor labelling
I bought a selection of plants from J Parkers last month: four blueberries, a Euonymus, a rhododendron and others. They arrived in a healthy condition and were well packed. The Euonymus was bare-rooted and had a healthy-looking root system. The others were in pots. The plants were small but I didn't expect anything bigger for that price, and also I wanted small plants because they will establish better in a summer with a hosepipe ban. There were only two things I think could be better. They say to allow 28 days for delivery. It would be good if they could give a dispatch estimate like Amazon does. I emailed them after 21 days and they said they would make my order urgent, and then they sent most of the plants immediately. I am wondering when I would have got them if I hadn't emailed. Also, the blueberries did not have labels on or in the pots. They are four different varieties but I do not know which is which. Better labelling would be helpful. I will definitely buy from them again.
Summary: I would recommend them.
