  • Came well packaged, in great condition 5

    Posted by Ellen on 16th May 2022

    The plants came well packaged in protective cardboard sections that keep the plants in their place, even if the box gets jostled. The plants themselves had at least 3 inches of growth. They transplanted well and are doing fine in our yard!
