After that there's loads more which I'll tell you about in the next newsletter. We are as always, listening to your comments, and have in response made a real effort and added loads of new pics to the website, so almost everything has a picture along side it now.
If you wish to order any of the goodies I have mentioned, you can order online now even though some are not in stock just yet, they are on their way and we don't want you to miss out, as many of the plants on offer are very rare in cultivation so stocks are often limited and will sell on a first come basis.
Have a browse through the website and see what takes your fancy and get back to us, as always ordering online is simple @ www.turn-it-tropical.co.uk or by phone
Take care. Simon.
