very happy thank you
The plants were received in great condition and very well packed
Professional, Reliable, Fast Shipping, and and great Customer Service!
Large order, 150 Plumbago plants, all the way from Georgia to Utah and not one single fatality. Very well packed. And the four day delivery speed, from order to arrival, was amazing. You're a Great seller. Our local nurseries don't carry the large quantity that we needed for our yard. You not only had enough, but they were also healthier than the ones we looked at during our local searches. I would love to buy from you again. Thank You.
Our customers were happy with their Plumbago. It arrived well packaged. We did not receive a shipping slip, but everything was accounted for. Their delivery time was excellent. We may use this site again for custom orders.
I was extremely happy when my plants arrived. they were well hydrated, wrapped well to hold moisture during transit,and WOW, they were large and healthy with lots of leaves and even blooms! Will be using this company again.
Arrived in great condition.
I was pleased with the quality of the Plumbago - very healthy. I have planted it and so far it is doing well.
