Healthy tomato plant

I’m very happy with my purchase. Thank you!

Burpee Big Boy

I want to express my thanks to you for the excellent care you put into shipping my plants. I have been ordering vegetable plants online for about 25 years and through mail order before that for 40 years and this is the first time my plants arrived in pristine condition and well packed. I was also surprised at the growth of the plants something I have never seen before in my orders. Again, thank for a job well done.

Highly recommend this company. I ordered many tomato plants from Growjoy! All arrived in excellent condition and each plant was in a separate sturdy plastic container. I repotted into slightly larger containers and kept in greenhouse for a couple weeks until planting in raised bed and pots on April 30. Plants tripled in size and stems thick and leaves green with no spots. I highly recommend this company. Do not worry about negative posts in 2021 as they must have been short handed and problems due to covid. They have responded to all my emails and questions. I could not be more pleased with ordering, shipping, customer service and healthy condition of plants.

Big Boy tomato plant

Came a little bent and the potting medium was bone dry. Within 2 hours of planting and giving it a good soaking in the container it was doing fantastic. Has grown great and now, in less than a month, it's producing its first tomatoes.

First Order

This was my first time ordering from this company. Ordering was very simple. Customer service was wonderful. I have not been able to plant because of the cold weather here in northeast Ohio. Normal planting time is usually memorial day weekend in my area. However GrowJoy's shipping schedule for this area is the end of April. Plants arrived in good shape. I just hope they last another three weeks before I can plant outside. I wish they would ship later in my area and I should’ve paid attention to their shipping dates and requested a later date.

From Sandra | May 08, 2020

The Burpee Big Boy Tomato Plant appeared to be crushed when it arrived but I watered it but it did not come back to normal within a couple of days. I contacted them and I have a new one on the was. They were friendly and ready to help. I will continue to use this company.
