The containers used for our bulbs are all recycled. They have been collected from markets, charity shops and car boot sales. Many have been donated. As a result you may find the odd chip or crack. We think this adds to the character. We hope you do too. The bulbs all come from a reputable wholesaler. We have endeavoured to weed out any that look as though they are not flourishing but the odd bulb may slip through. We hope you enjoy their scent and beauty in these long winter months.
