RHS Award of Garden Merit

The Award of Garden Merit or AGM is an award made to garden plants by the British Royal Horticultural Society after a period of assessment by the appropriate committees of the Society. Awards are made annually after plant trials (which may last for one or more years, depending on the type of plant being trialled) at RHS Garden, Wisley and other RHS gardens, or after observation of plants in specialist collections. This is intended to judge the plants' performance for conditions in the UK.

Rating: 5/5

"very well packed items in general, although one of them arrived with a broken top - the Mahonia didn't obviously fit into its plastic container and the top was broken when it arrived. I haven't reported it straight away, so probably will just have to see if it takes off... Delivery was speedy and communication from Primrose excellent."
