    I have not planted my Woodruff in the garden yet, so I can’t rate on the growing performance of the plants but I will give 5 stars for the speed of the delivery, the protective packaging that my Woodruff plants arrived in and also because the Woodruff plants that I received are all in great condition; they all look healthy, green and ready to be planted.

      Hi. That is great news. Pleased you like them. Woodruff is a lovely plant and when established, they will look wonderful!
      Thank you!

    I ordered one of these last year (as always it was perfectly packed, with little packaging material :-), very good plant quality and quick delivery) and planted in a shady woodland area within my garden and it spread beautiful and flowers so much at the moment and has this lovely sweet sentenced smell to it. One of my favourite plants! It is so beautiful with all the bluebells around it in my garden at this minute. thank you.

    Bought 15, and although I had to wait for several weeks, they arrived in beautiful condition.
    Such great value.
    Planted them today and all plants had very established roots.
    Extremely delighted with them…thank you.
