Great Service

Both of my plants arrived quickly. Not sure if they are healthy due to them arriving in a dormant state.

Cant stand waiting

Shipment arrived as promised, packaged well and packing paper was still moist around roots. Plants were a little smaller than I expected but should be fine. Can’t stand waiting until I see the beauty in these trees!

When I received the Crape Myrtle tree, the roots and packing around them were dry. I was very concerned that there was any life in it. I contacted the nursery and was told to scrape a small place on the bark to see if it was green. Sure enough it was, so I soaked the roots and planted. I am now waiting for buds. I recommend this nursery.
