I fully understand that shipping plants isn’t the best way to create landscaping but no one in my area has had these for over a year so I took a chance. They came very well packaged and I’m about to put them in the ground. Instructions say to allow to acclimate before planting. Most leaves and branches have dried to the point of snapping so I cleaned it up and am hoping they’ll rebound once in the ground. These grow like weeds here so fingers crossed
Terrific plant quality, packaging and much appreciated gift packet of seeds.
Outstanding, by comparison to many other online nurseries-I frequently order.
My plants arrived healthy.
The St John's Wort arrived healthy and well packed so was undamaged.
