Introducing - Callistemon Kings Park – Lemon-Scented ‘Bottle Brush’ Tree in Breath-taking ‘Lollipop’ Form

Callistemon is a simply beautiful evergreen tree that will explode with incredible firework-like bottle brush blooms in early summer each year - the flowers that are larger than many other varieties. Available here in eye-catching ‘standard’ form so the flowering head is held on a strong stem, well above your other plants thereby making an incredible visual statement and making your garden really stand out from the crowd!

They are perfect for growing in pots on your patio and to make them even more attractive, the foliage has a refreshing lemon citrus scent that will fill the air when you brush past or crush the leaves. Friendly insects and essential pollinators will flock to the nectar laden blooms, ensuring that your fruits and vegetables get the essential ‘pollination service’ they require! So even if you are a Grow Your Own gardener with little regard for flowering plants – there is no excuse here!

Originally raised in Kings Park in Perth Australia and very commonly grown across the Mediterranean, these complete beauties have incredibly pretty pink foliage when it is young and are surprisingly winter hardy here in the UK down to -4C! In very exposed sites, a fleece cover will see them safely over-winter. They love a sun drenched position and will reward you with more spectacular blooms when you site them well.

+ Service rating : Quick delivery,no problems.
Product : Plant in a very good condition,exactly as described haven't planted it yet,but seems to do OK at the moment. Only concern: I thought it supposed to have red flowers but there is a picture of white flowers on the tag. So I'm not sure what colour the plant is going to have.
++ Service rating : Item arrived promptly and well packed and in good condition.
Product : A good looking healthy plant, can't wait to see it in full bloom.
++ Service rating : arrived on time and in excellent condition. Planted immediately in big pot and looks lovely. Thank you.
Product : as above
++ Service rating : speedy delivery well packaged
Product : beautiful, healthy plant now flowering
++ Service rating : Prompt and efficient.

YouGarden Comments
Thanks again for your order. You bought these right at the end of the flowering season. Don't worry, they'll flower again next year.

Head of Customer Service
++ Service rating : The service was excellent will definitely be ordering from you in the future.
Product : I am really pleased with the two Callistemon's I received they arrived in perfect condition, can't wait for them to flower!
++ Service rating : Thank you for replacing the bottlebrush plant after having it for a year. You certainly keep to your promises. An excellent company who I have no hesitation in recommending.
Product : See above
- Service rating : Although I had to make a few telephone calls, they eventually arrived, and were well packaged.
Product : After under a week of receiving these all the flowers faded and wilted although on the website it states that these flower from May through to September. I did receive replacements under the lifetime guarantee but the replacements did exactly the same thing. Unfortunately I have had the same problem with my Oleanders'. I am wondering if the flowering periods are over exaggerated.
YouGarden Comments
Both of these plants are used to hot, sunny weather and flower throughout summer if we get good weather. It has been very cold and wet thus far this year, which will certainly have had an effect. Fingers crossed for some sunshine soon!

Product : Arrived in poor condition. Emailed you garden and have not heard back despite automated email response saying I would hear within 5 days. Over 2 weeks ago!!

I hope that, after our email conversation, your concerns have been put at ease.

This die-back of blooms is perfectly normal for Callistemons. We'd be happy to answer any further questions you my have about this.

+ Service rating : Prompt and plants strong

Thank you again for your order.

I am sorry that you couldn't get through on the phone yesterday morning. Regrettably - due to an issue with the service provider completely out of our control - our phone line was down for around three hours yesterday. Our main office is open Mon-Fri and we answer emails from over the weekend asap the following week.

I understand that your complaint has been resolved now. Apologies again.

Head of Customer Service
-- Service rating : This plant arrived in a very poor state with several broken branches and wet, discoloured almost dead leaves in places. Very disappointing.
Product : Please see above.
YouGarden Comments
So sorry to hear that - although it is very surprising as the stock on the nursery is looking excellent. It probably suffered in transit.

We'd be happy to replace - would you mind sending me some photos?

Head of Customer Service

NA Not my order. Waste of time sending email as order was still sent. Then I phoned
but order still received. Then I get a phone call asking was I sure it was not my
YouGarden Comments
Seems odd that it was ordered under your name, using your address, phone number and email address if it wasn't you that ordered it? As requested we will check the coupon that was filled out and posted to us.
