    Cannot emphasise enough how happy I am that I found The Big Plant Nursery. With a whole brand new border to fill from scratch, and a tropical theme already running through my garden, I’m totally spoilt for choice!. Everything I’ve ordered so far has arrived healthy, intact and gorgeous. Excellent customer service just prior to my order being dispatched.
    I will be back!!!
    Highly recommend.

    Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the Acer palmatum ‘Sangu Kaku’ of which I took delivery of today. Its an absolute cracker of a specimen and i’m over the moon with it. Couldn’t believe that it got delivered today, and you guys have now set the president on how online plant shopping should be done. Its such a shame that I live so far away (or a blessing on my wallet), but I will be returning for more plants, and recommending you to all.

    Acers are my favourite plant and this one is a gorgeous colour and is destined for a lovely container. I don’t mine that acers are deciduous as you have that excitement of seeing the new leaves come out in spring. Very well packed and the plant was healthy and every leaf intact. Very impressed with The Big Plant Nursey and will be ordering again soon.

    I am very pleased with my purchases from Big Plant Nursery. The quality of the plants I have received so far is very good and I would highly recommend them to my friends and family. In addition the customer service was excellent when dealing with a small problem regarding one of my acer trees. Thanks
