"Thank you very much. My cordylines arrived today :) I am very impressed with your prompt service and the quality of my new babies.

I will definitely order plants from you in the future.

Thanks again, Courtney"

These three pohutukawas grown at our home site are being settled into their new home where they provide instant screening from the 2-storeyed house on the opposite side of the roadway. See May 2011 Update for further details.

Thatís sad to hear. Unfortunately, the ideal spot for screening purposes is not always Natureís ideal spot for growing trees. Hopefully this summerís moisture and warmth will give the two surviving trees a growth spurt sufficient to fill the gap.
