Seeds received through staff committment :-)

Hello
I don't normally respond to these reviews however this one is the exception.

My address was not compete when I filled the order in. It was 'returned to sender', one of your staff contacted me to complete the address and resend my seeds. With lots of delivery happening I think this little extra commitment to a customer is great!
