The seedling arrived very well packaged and protected in a plain cardboard box but with the seedling secured inside to a stake with tiebacks and the plant base and growing medium in a inside box. Also included were a small sachet of slow release plant food sufficient apparently for six months. A useful growing guide was also included which I append to this little unboxing video.
I have only just moved the seedling into the conservatory and so it is far too early to say how well it will survive or how the mature tree will appear. All I can say is that I am very satisfied with the condition of the seedling as I received it and that the packaging and aftercare arrangements from Tree Online Nursery seem very good indeed. Currently priced at £4.90 + £3.95 UK delivery it seems a good buy indeed.
