    Delivered today, excited to get it in the ground in a good spot.
    Although I will likely keep it in the pot to see how it goes and maybe plant late spring…
    This was my first order paired with a Tranchycarpus palm and I am very happy with the service received. It is good to know these guys are based near me in West sussex and will certainly be ordering again with them.
