Plant Info

An absolute gem of a Winter flowering plant, little seen but a really good Winter garden plant, not grown widely enough.

In late Winter and early Spring, beforer much colour at all, even before daffodils, it produces intriguing yellow and cream flowers, lightly scented, smothered over bare stems, as flowers are produced before the leaves. It is a relative of the Daphne, sharing it's preference for cool, lighty shaded spots.

Martin distinctly remembers being blown away by the first sight and smell of this plant, a large specimen on a remote Dutch Nursery, on a wet, windy and grey February afternoon, but finding much stock has been a challenge. Now we have some, it deserves a space in many gardens.

Score Customer Comments
++ Service rating : Always a good service
Product : Healthy plant as always
+ The cardboard box in which the plants were packed had obviously been handled badly in transit as it had ripped open in two places. This probably led to the damage to the box containing the clematis - see below
++ Service rating : Always had good service from this company, including fast postage and great packaging.
Product : Shrub Looks in very good health.
-- Service rating : I have had no problems in the past, and did not expect any this time either. However EVERYTHING was jumbled up in the box which I put down to the carrier. However I think better packing would have helped and was much needed.
Product : ALL the leaves went brown and dropped off within 48 hours of delivery. The plant has now sprung new growth so is not dead. It should be ok in a couple of months. I suspect problems with the packaging and handling by the carriers.
+ Service rating : Always good value items.
Product : Well packed and good value plant.
+ Service rating : Well packed
Product : Decent size
NA Have said before very very good
++ Service rating : good site, excellent service, all plants arrived in perfect condition, and very healthy
Product : this plant arrived very well packed and healthy, no problem planted in garden day after it came, and has settled in with no problem,
+ My parcel was left in the rain and wind ( blown over).and discovered at 7-30 by the career .No bell was rung.and as I do not go out the delivery men usually know to call. If it had stayed out all night ,I would not like to have seen the result!
YouGarden Comments
I am sorry if this delivery driver was unaware of what is usually done at your property, however you did not provide us with these details.

According to the courier firm there was no answer at the door and the parcel was left in a safe place, as we request of them. I am sorry if this resulted in the box being damaged by rain and wind, though I am glad that the plants inside were fine.

Next time, please make sure that you give us instructions to pass on to the courier, in the event that you do not answer the door.

NA Service rating : Good service and regular updates.
Product : It has gone yellow and looks poorly!
I hope it will perk up for next year.
What Is Supplied Supplied as an estalished 2 year old plant in a 15cm pot, about 20-30cm tall, ready to plant out. Dormant form Novemebr, so no leaves.
