Your plants are bigger than other plants I have bought online!  We hear this a fair bit.  

We think it is important to deliver a plant strong and vigorous and up to the journey, but still young enough to quickly establish.

Many online nurseries include the pot depth when they describe the plant height, we don't!  

So, when we describe a plant as being 20-25cm tall (our most common size) it is measured from the soil level to the top of the plant gaining you a much bigger plant than if measured from the base of the pot.
