An exceptionally good gift idea ruined by extremely poor and incomplete delivery. The description states "The Package also contains 3 items from the Lou's Poo Fertiliser Range" but I received only one item which was obviously ancient with a badly worn by wear and tear label and so useless as part of a gift. The china items are really lovely but were dirty having been wrapped in dirty bubble wrap. Most businesses these days use recyclable cardboard or paper packaging. I was amazed that the contents had survived their journey as the box used was really inadequate being too soft and battered. I dare not use it to post some of the contents on as a gift as I had intended. All in all extremely disappointing.
The Ultimate Herb Lovers Gift Package : Featuring a Fine Bone China Herb Planter, 2 Fine Bone China Mugs, Seeds and Lou's Poo Fertiliser
Some Herbs may be too tall for our standard packaging and will be trimmed to fit. This will not be detrimental to the plant but will mean that these herbs will flower later in the year.
The Blister packs used to protect our beautiful herbs during transit are made from 100% recycled plastic and can be recycled kerbside.
