    I am very impressed with the quality of the plants I received (well rooted & healthy new growth) as well as the care that was given to the packaging of the 16 plants I ordered. I wish all plant nurseries would show the same level of care and attention to their plants as it translates into repeat orders.
    Big thumbs up from me.
    Thank you
