I brought a phormium sundowner online, in a 10lt pot. When it arrived it was in 5.5lt pot. The nursery that suppled it, said the plant was the correct size even though it's in a pot half the size. Can you give me some advice, as I'm not sure that's right. Mark Pattenden

Well, you could argue that the goods supplied were not as described, and get your money back, but to be honest, that's a fine looking plant, whatever size pot it came in, so its up to you really. If you paid a premium price because it was in a 10 litre pot, then argue the case - it certainly looks as if it will need a bigger pot fairly soon though.

I would check if there is a price difference between 5 and 10 litre pots and ask for the difference from them. I would keep the plant though as it is a good size and looks attractive. Judging by other Phormiums I have seen in GCs the one supplied is large.
