Big and beautiful

This plant is growing nicely in my container garden! I've never tried growing squash before, but this plant looks like it's going to be a lot of fun, and fruit. I'm looking forward to watching it grow and enjoying the harvest!

Squash plants

The plants arrived very well packaged. I was concerned about how they would ship, but GrowJoy seems to have this down to a science. I planted them as soon as they arrived and within 2 weeks, the flowers started blooming. I'm already starting to see squash grow from these plants. I'm very satisfied and a little pleasantly surprised at the success of these. I will order from GrowJoy again. I have trouble with Squash vine borers, so ordering these for early August works great for me. I can't get squash from my local suppliers in August so GrowJoy is a great option for that time of year. I get Squash through Fall now.

Zucchini galore

These zucchini plants are out of control, big, with huge crop. My friends and family cannot believe how many and how big these zucchini are. Highly recommend this plant.

Another Great Year!

Actually bought this by accident. Glad I did! Last year the plant was so big and healthy it overwhelms the space I have. Here’s to another fine year! I’ll make the same mistake next year! Great producer!

Gigantic squash plants

The biggest leaves I've ever seen on a plant! Unfortunately a recent hurricane snapped every leaf and killed existing plants. I liked them well enough to reorder with expedited shipping too!
