    Excellent plants will be put in pots so they can be over wintered inside as I know they will not survive the winter in the pennines

    Please see my email of today’s date. Overall, pleased with the size and value of the plants and how well they were packed. However, I am worried about one of them as several leaves have dark red spots and are curling up and dying. I can send photos if that helps. Look forward to hearing from you.
