    Wrong item sent but happy with the customer service

    The plant I received looked healthy and in good condition, but unfortunately was not the size I ordered. When I contacted the company to complain they responded quickly and I am happy with how the issue has been resolved. I would definitely buy from them again, but it’s a shame I didn’t receive the correct product. I will have to wait some time for my smaller plant to grow to fill the space I wanted it for!

    Chose a big plant for my daughter's birthday to replace one she had lost (guest's overwatering!) and she's thrilled. Very swift delivery thanks to the initiative of the driver and an obliging neighbour. In a hurry so maybe I didn't see an option to include a message nor a pot that would fit. No matter because she didn't need either but would be nice to see such options in the future.
