Fabulous service! I ordered 25 plants and they were delivered within a week...and that was during the corona virus. Never expected such a speedy delivery. They went in the ground the next day and today ( 3 days after planting) they are perky and already putting out new growth! I am looking forward to seeing a flow of pink and white striped blossoms in my garden. So pleased!
The phlox arrived well packaged and were very healthy. I ordered 48 of these last year and they arrived in great condition too. I lost about 8 of them by this spring, but I ordered and planted them too late in the year so I blame myself. I just ordered 24 more to complete the flower bed and replace the 8 lost. They look great, I planted earlier, and expect them to all do well.
