"Dear Mike,
Thank you so much for the fern order which arrived yesterday in perfect condition. On looking at the box I didn't think it possible that the plants could have survived and they would just be a gooey mess as some plants by post have been - But no! the newspaper, still soggy, had protected them beautifully. They look lovely - just what I wanted for my new stumpery! I shall certainly be recommending your company."
