Great value and quality...
I recently looked around for good value, quality Kaffir plants and came across Colonial Growers. How well that turned out! Best thing I ever did! The plants were all delivered safely and securely and well packaged the next day and what great value and quality, I can't praise this company high enough.

I had been cautious!...
I would like to thank you for the prompt and safe delivery of my kaffir plant. It is a beautiful example, far better than I imagined. I had been cautious about buying on line, wrongly it seems. Please use this as assurance to prospective customers of the quality they would receive.

Received the oil yesterday - it smells wonderful...
Received the oil yesterday thank you and it smells wonderful!
I used it in a simple salad paired with just some lime juice and it was amazing. I've since used it a few more times in various salads and it is wonderful with all sorts of vinegar, including balsamic. A truly magnificent olive oil.

I received my mature kaffir lime tree today and it's brilliant.
Furthermore, it arrived in just three days in Guernsey as promised in the middle of the lock down. Fantastic service!

.Spectacular plant that will be much loved...
My plant arrived safe and sound and in double quick time. Thank you so much on all counts. It is a spectacular plant and will be very much loved. It was my wife's 50th birthday present...and she can cook a mean Thai curry. Happy days!!

Just a note to say how delighted I am with my plant which arrived this morning. I wasn't expecting such a beautifully mature plant. Pleasure doing business with you - if only other mail order plant suppliers were this good!

Thank you for an excellent service...
Just to say thank you for an excellent service - the plants arrived in great condition and are doing well a month later! The kaffir lime olive oil is really delicious - I was a little sceptical at first but the flavours work together brilliantly and a little goes a long way!
Thanks again and I am looking forward to some tasty fruit in the coming years.

Despite the lock down...
I made a decision to purchase a kaffir lime plant and despite the lock down, I received a friendly response to my enquiry and the plant arrived well packaged by courier next day. The plant was in a beautiful condition and arrived without damage. I couldn't have been happier and highly recommend Colonial Growers!

Just to say thank you for an amazing and beautiful kaffir plant which arrived this afternoon. It has really made my day and is most appreciated.

I adore the flavour of kaffir lime...
I adore the flavour of kaffir lime leaves but always struggled to find them fresh. I decided to invest in my own plants. They were hand delivered by Colonial Growers along with a free bottle of their utterly devine olive oil. Trust me this stuff is amazing and it comes in a lovely plastic free bottle.
Rachel Walton | June 2020 | Oxted, Surrey
What great service we received...
What a great service we received. Colonial Growers couldn't have been more helpful in arranging our order of a kaffir plant to Guernsey - not the easiest place to deliver to! A beautiful plant arrived very swiftly. Can't wait to order from them again as the service was great and felt very personal.
Claire Judd | August 2020 | Guernsey, Channel Islands
The smell was glorious...
Despite not having green fingers, my kaffir plant is thriving one year on. The first flowers appeared in April and by mid summer I was pulling buds off by the handful to restrict the amount turning to fruit. The smell was glorious!
I have also used many leaves for cooking and I am looking forward to another productive year. Thank you so much.

My gorgeous kaffir lime...
I purchased my kaffir lime plant in December and it arrived very promptly. I positioned it near a patio door in my living room and is looking wonderful. It is extremely healthy and I am delighted to see it is producing lots of new growth and also has small flower buds appearing. I couldn't be happier with my gorgeous kaffir lime and it puts my expensive lemon tree bought from a garden centre to shame!
Nicola Doran | February 2021 | West Norfolk
Thank you so much for your prompt service, my plant arrived early this morning and is in great condition and well packaged. Highly recommended thank you!

Bursting with new buds...
Wonderful kaffir plant simply bursting with new buds and growth - arrived in a well packaged box and had lost remarkably few leaves in transit. Thank you!

A good sized healthy plant arrived...
A good sized healthy looking kaffir plant arrived quickly only a day after ordering it and in effective packaging .It is still looking healthy and happy and the fresh leaves are so much more aromatic than those from the supermarket.
Jo Shoosmith | April 2021 | Marlborough, Wilts
My kaffir lime and lemon plants together with my UK grown fresh lime leaves arrived in excellent condition within two days of ordering.They far exceeded my expectations and were larger and more mature than I expected and the large lemon on the plant was an added bonus. 5 star service!
Mark Hamilton | May 2021 | Uggeshall, Suffolk
It has put on at least 20% growth...
I'm new to kaffir plants and I wanted to say how delighted I am with it.
I ordered a mature plant which arrived in perfect condition and well packaged. In the 6 weeks I have had it, it has put on at least 20% growth and is full of blossom clusters and the leaves have the most wonderful aroma. Special thanks to Len Atkins who has been most helpful.
Christine Kelly | May 2021 | Stockbridge Hampshire
You have given me excellent service...
I'm pleased to report my kaffir plant arrived this morning as you hoped and I am extremely pleased with it. I shall be recommending you to all my gardening and cooking friends. You have given me excellent service and I am most grateful to you!

Thank you so much for the delivery of fresh kaffir leaves and the kaffir olive oil - they are fantastic.
The olive oil tastes gorgeous and the fresh leaves are amazing.
I didn't realise how real fresh leaves would be - thank you!

Just wanted to share with you photos of our kaffir plant we purchased from you a year ago. As you can see it is thriving, plenty of fruits and still flowering. We are amazed, thank you.

First Class All Round Service...
I ordered my kaffir plant just before Easter and was immediately advised my plant would be despatched following the holiday so as not to be stuck in transit for several days. The plant duly arrived at 8.30am on the due day and was a superb, healthy, large plant, well packed and in great condition. Detailed instructions were supplied on how to care and grow my plant. First class all round service from Colonial Growers.
