    It would be ideal if they came on Sunday, surely we can't be told off on Fathers Day !!!!!???

    I got very lucky this time. I will have to be very quiet unboxing etc and then I’ll have to go out in to the garden to ‘check on my maples’ and have a sneaky look lol

    My Extravaganza has just arrived and I'm 'not' disappointed at all.
    It's a lovely weeper with beautiful varigation to the leaves.

    Looks just like mine. Mine was in the same coloured pot too. Bright pink. Probably came from the same grower. My Mystic Jewel looks just like yours too. Not quite as colourful as the (photoshopped) pic advertised lol.

    Agreed Luke , there may have been some playing around with the Mystic jewel photos. Time will tell !!! They are healthy and were very well packaged, so no complaints there.
