Plant sizes are approximate. Plants grow individually and whilst we make every effort to ensure that all plants supplied are at least the minimum of the size range we indicate, occasionally plants are slightly smaller, especially if ordered at the beginning of a growing season. Equally, sometimes plants are taller than indicated, especially if ordered at the end of a growing season.
