"I have ordered online from you three times now, having read about you in The Times. On each occasion, my order has been delivered in the shortest possible time. Moreover, your products have worked! From being at the point of giving up over the damage done by slugs, I'm now starting to sow seeds again, knowing that you'll provide me with ways to protect my young plants. Your website is very user-friendly and it feels like being greeted politely in a shop by knowledgeable, but unintrusive, staff. Thankyou. I will certainly be back." Yours faithfully, Anny Kilbourne.
