I just wanted to let you know my plants have arrived today as promised. I have unpacked them and they are wonderful, I am so pleased with them. They are much bigger than I expected and in tip-top condition. Thank you so much. I also think they are really excellent value for money – I buy most of my plants on-line (living in Cornwall the choices are a bit limited) and I had looked for Hydrangea seemannii at my usual on-line supplier but they were so expensive I was a bit put off. Ten pounds per plant more (!) Then I searched around and found you – your plants were considerably cheaper and larger so I was a bit worried they might fall short of the mark. But… absolutely no worries on that front. In fact I bought two seemannii from the other supplier earlier this year (I think they are a very ‘useful’ plant, particularly for someone who lives in a walled garden) so can do a direct comparison. Interestingly, they are smaller than yours now even though they have been in the ground and well cared for, for more than six summer months. Many thanks, excellent service and terrific plants – I will be back..!Debbie Frost
Rachel Hybrid Tea Roses
Rosa Rachel - Hybrid Tea Roses
Description of Rachel Roses:
Rachel is a big rose with masses of frilly petals in the centre and a gentle two-tone colour. Most of the flower is a creamy peach colour and the outer petals have a slight purple blush, with a small amount of spotted patterning. The scent is good and while each individual flower doesn't last very long, they keep on coming from spring to autumn.
This is a really shrubby rose that goes well towards the back of a border.
