  7. After selecting new plants, they were paid for on Thursday and the order was sent out the next day and arrived yesterday. I've found ordering and having my plants sent out the same day, absolutely fantastic and very smooth process! Thanks to David at carnivoria! Mark
  8. Cheers, I use shamrock as well, the last two bags I bought contained really dark peat and a lot finer than the bags I bought a few years ago, the other stuff was a light brown with a lot of chunks in it Mark
