Having seen this particular variety of alstromeria growing at RHS Rosemoor and it being unavailable to buy there, I was so pleased to find that Bean Place nurseries stocked it. The plants arrived quickly, were packed very well and look strong and vigorous.
I am waiting for it to establish and flower before I comment on this particular plant. It arrived very well packaged and in good condition with my other items.
I have used Bean Place before and can recommend.
Good quality healthy plants. Have ordered previously,very good nursery,prompt,well packaged deliveries.
