    Staff were very helpful after having a problem ordering online. The dahlia plants were very carefully packed and arrived in perfect condition and we’re a lot bigger than I expected them to be. Will definitely use proctors again if sending plant gifts in the UK.

    I have purchased over 100 Dahlia’s this year including a large number of Rhubarb and Custard from a number of different outlets, and I have to say these plants are not only the best looking, but also the largest, best packaged and also the best price!! I certainly know where I will be coming in the future.
