healthy plants

Received such healthy-looking plants! Very hot in north NJ now, but Rosemary plants still look strong and are growing, thanks.

I purchased a number of them. All plants came very well as always. But all season I only had greenery. They were planted in three different places. But they look good so I'm hoping for next yr and a larger spread with flowers.

Arrived quickly. LOTS of greenery when received. In the ground and thriving for two weeks now.

This Ruby is Truly a Jewel!

Thank You for the wonderful packaging that kept this delicate succulent well protected. We look forward to planting this Ruby Jewel in our newest garden, one for alpine plants. We will keep ordering more plants from you, because they are the best we've ever received from anywhere!
