"Dear Jon and all at Botanica. Just a quick message to let you know how the fastigiate hornbeam is doing which we purchased from you in 2018 and planted in memory of my dad. As you can see it has grown really well over the past four years and is holding out well despite the dry conditions this year, in large part because it was very good stock to begin with!"
"Really pleased to say the trees arrived today. They were so carefully and tenderly packaged up, that I was taken aback - in a very good way."
"Just a quick email to thank you for all your help in the purchase of the Sessile Oak. The tree was delivered this morning to Christchurch, St Albans in great shape and we are looking forward to planting it very soon! Thank you and Botanica Nursery."
"I absolutely loved my visit to the nursery this morning and just wanted to say a big thank you for the wonderful service. Can’t wait to visit again in a week or two and see all the irises that were still to bloom."
"Can I thank all of you for your help and assistance. I am very pleased with the selection of trees that you guided me through - they look really super. Jon’s expertise in the positioning was really helpful - one of my neighbours said that the trees looked very natural where they had been placed. The 2 delivery guys - Ronnie and James I think - were great, they worked very hard and did a very professional and tidy job.
All in all I am delighted with the job Botanica have done."
"Thank you for my trees which I received yesterday. They were so well - and cosily packed! I have planted them and am pleased to have them as part of my garden. Thank you for the service provided by Botanica"
"Just to say a huge thank you, trees arrived just after 9.30am, beautifully wrapped. Managed to get them in the car and over to the church. I tried to leave a review, couldn’t find how to do it on my phone - I’m a complete technophobe! Thanks once again"
"Please pass on thanks to Jon and the boys too - you all did a super friendly & professional job. Fingers crossed to you all being able to drive past ours in the years to come and say 'nice hedge'!"
"Aldeburgh Beach Apple arrived safely yesterday but am waiting for storm to pass before heeling it in. Delighted to have this for very sentimental reasons and it is No. 18 and the last to finish off my old variety orchard. Don't know if this is an old variety but it represents Aldeburgh for me so is very special and also fulfils Her Majesty's wish that everyone plant a tree for her Platinum Jubilee. Thank you very, very much."
"The Banns variety Apple tree was delivered this morning and is fine thanks to the excellent packing. We shall look forward to watching it grow over the years to come. Many thanks for your helpful and efficient service"
"I would like to thank you for a great plant received on Friday the customer contact with us was outstanding and the packaging of our plant was the best I have ever seen. We are glad we found you and would definitely use you again a very good experience"
"Just wanted to say thank you again for looking after us when we visited yesterday, it was a real treat to have the personal service instead of trying to a) find the plants we wanted and b) wonder whether they were the right ones. Karen was really touched by your birthday gift as well and, following our slap-up lunch at The Froize, declared it her best birthday in ages!"
"'I was very happy to promptly receive very healthy, well-rooted rhizomes of old iris varieties I did not think would still be grown today. Will gladly order from Botanica in future. John from Kent"
"The plants have arrived safely, beautifully wrapped and we unpacked the packaging with care. Delighted with the 3 plants and I have copied your instructions for the Centranthus to be planted later which we will include with the Farewell card.
Thank you for sending them to arrive today"
"Beautiful wisteria kimono arrived today can’t thank you enough excellent service will be back again thank you"
"Botanica went out of their way to find a small flowering tree, a Robinia Hispida, to provide dappled shade for us to sit beneath mid-summer. This replaces one which we had lost and will be a delight. Many thanks indeed to you and Jon and co for all the effort that went into this"
"I just wanted to drop you a line to say a massive thank you to Team Botanica. You inadvertently played a big part in our day last Friday - when we had to say goodbye to my father-in-law. From the advice on the birch we wanted as a memorial tree, then accommodating my request for delivery/planting on the afternoon of the funeral, to the actual planting with our family. Graham and Luke who came for the planting of both the beautiful birch and the fruit trees were absolutely lovely. So respectful and mindful of the tone of our day, and just really fabulous to deal with. Suggesting the kids put some of the soil on was wonderful. Please thank them both very much from all of us. Thanks also to Jane for sorting our lovely fruit trees, they are great. We look forward to seeing them bloom and then coming out to Botanica when you re-open to get things for the rest of the garden. Just wanted you to know how appreciated it all was"
"We bought 7 bare rooted privet plants from you on Friday afternoon. Sadly we didn’t know about Botanica before so had ordered hedging from Hedges Direct. After needing a few more plants you were recommended by the The Walled Garden Nursery. I just want to pass on our thanks for the quality of your plants. They were more expensive but the quality was outstanding in comparison with our other bare root hedging. Our only regret is that we didn’t get all the plants from you. Thankfully this is only the beginning of our garden renovation project so we will definitely be visiting again when the restrictions finally lift"
"Thanks for helping us find the plants we were looking for - and a few more that caught our eyes besides - amongst the great and varied selection on your nursery. We are very pleased with the plants and will doubtless be back for more. Good value all round"
"I recently bought an Ilex Verticillata from you and just wanted to say I was very impressed with your service from the email update of stock availability to packaging of the plant and delivery. Thank you"
