Lemon Scented Myrtle

Great service and plants.

Delivered quickly and in great condition. They also let us know what prep was needed.

A nice addition to our yard

Our 'new' Lemon Scented Myrtle looks fantastic in the middle of our front lawn. I will consult with Brisbane Nursery to ensure that we aren't 'over/under watering' in the early stages of planting. Leaves are 'drooping' a little .. but may be due to windy conditions. Flowers are emerging. I'm very pleased with our choice of tree.
