“David Salman is the most wonderful breeder, grower and brilliant plantsman. I am thrilled with ALL the plants I purchased from him last year: they are strong, healthy and bloomed long into the autumn. Everything I bought thrived beautifully in not always easy conditions. I am definitely going back for other wonderful offerings this May.”
