Could not be more satisfied

I was very impressed with the care and condition these trees were received as. Still moist with no sign of damage. I think the best part of it all was the ease of planting them thanks to the well written planting and care instructions that was included.
I will definitely order from Green Thumbs Garden again.

Beautiful peach /salmon colored leaves

I ordered the trees for the fall, so they arrived approaching item, and the leafs were healthy but starting to change colors. Very beautiful. Healthy as well

Our tree was delivered to us by our rural postman. It was placed in soil the same day. The leaves were a little yellow and had some dark spots on them, but otherwise they seem to be in good shape. Will order from you again
