Brussels Sprout, etc

I ordered brussels sprouts, tomatoes, cucumbers and bell peppers. I don't have any veggies yet, only planted them a few weeks ago, but they arrived in great shape and they're growing really well. So far, so good. I've ordered from GrowJoy before and have been very pleased with their vegetables.

Brussel sprouts

Cant go wrong with grow joy all plants arrived in excellent condition the only mail order company I’ll use for plants from here on out . I’ve ordered from their competitors and grow joys plants are much better

From Roger | May 31, 2021

Positive experience

Positive experience. Plants arrived fast in a very secure package with plastic cradle so the plants wouldn’t be destroyed in transit. Plants were in great shape and not even wilted

From Clyde Bradley | May 10, 2021

Brussel Sprouts

I had previously purchased some Brussel sprouts at Lowe’s. They were very small and didn’t perform well. So I tried the grow Joy Brussel sprouts and they were really well packaged and still moist when I received them. No damage at all. They were a great size and very healthy. They have outgrown the sprouts I purchased from Lowe’s and are doing excellent. I will be placing my spring orders with Grow Joy. Well done.

From Bill | October 25, 2020

Satisfied customer

I’ve tried other growers, Grow joy is the better choice. They know how to package & my fruits, veggies & flowers. They always arrive healthy & ready to plant, no matter how the posts rough them up. 👍

From Maureen | October 15, 2020


Brussels sprouts were shipped on a Thursday and arrived on Monday via USPS, even though USPS estimated a Tuesday delivery. The plants looked a little weak and compact but the color was good. Still had plenty of moisture. After being in the ground for only 1 day, they looked great. They stood up nice and tall. We Ordered 5 plants, so there was unused plastic in the box. It would be nice if the plastic clamshell was more customizable so plastic isn’t wasted. We will definitely use GrowJoy again.

From Gary | September 27, 2020

Long Island Improved Brussels Sprouts

Plants were shipped quickly and are way nicer than I expected. I highly recommend this company.

From Michael | August 01, 2015

Great Experience

I wanted to plant Brussels Sprouts in June because they have always been slow to grow. In the past, when I planted them in late August (according to conventional wisdom and seed catalog advice), the snow hit before I harvested a single sprout. No other garden center or plant supplier had plants available until late summer. Except GrowJoy. The shipment tracking was good and my package came in just a few days. The really impressive part was the packaging and the condition of the plants. The packaging was perfect... protected the plants, which arrived in wonderful condition. They are growing like crazy as I write this. A1 product and service. Exceeded my expectations

From vince | July 02, 2015

Brussels Sprouts

fast shipping and Long Island looks healthy. Love doing business with you.

From laquita | April 15, 2014

Nervous (first timer) but hopeful...

I've never grown Brussels Sprouts before, and I got nervous when I found out that I probably planted early for Texas and its heat. The good news is that I've planted it in a (large) pot, so if the heat gets too intense, I can always move it indoors. My fingers are crossed, and I'm hopeful because the plant that was delivered is a BEAUTY. With some luck & a little TLC, I think we'll be snacking on fresh Brussels Sprouts this fall!

From Dallas | April 11, 2014

Brussels Sprouts

Three summers in NC after a move from NH, we were so disappointed with respect to growing Brussels Sprouts, one of my favorite home-growns. I decided to try a winter garden, then couldn't find seedlings and only two of the hundreds of seeds I ordered on line sprouted. I finally located GrowJoy, whose shipment of sprout seedlings arrived quickly and in great shape. They are growing in my garden now even though we haven't had any sun for the past week! I am happy to have found GrowJoy.

From Donna | October 17, 2013

Brussels Sprouts

From Charles | September 13, 2013

High Hopes

When the plants arrived, they were packed so carefully and are beautiful. Hoping they can withstand transplanting, but so far, so good.

From Sonya | September 12, 2013

Fall Brussels Sprouts Plants

From Cathy | August 23, 2013


The plants seem to be doing well, about a week in from transplanting. They arrived well watered, but very root bound...roots growing through drainage holes. The plants themselves were in good condition...not spindly, etc.

Good plants and very fast shipping. Thanks! I will keep ordering more! I will be a loyal customer.

From anonymous | July 25, 2013

Brussels Sprouts are GREAT

Very fast delivery and I received the Brussels Sprouts in great shape. They were packaged very well and looked great. Watered them as soon as they arrived and got them planted and they are growing very well. Can't wait to taste them.I am a very happy customer and will definitely use GrowJoy for all my garden purchases. I live in a town that doesn't offer all the vegetable choices that they do on their website. So I am very satisfied that I can grow things that aren't dictated by what my local gardens decide to sell.

From Jamie | July 11, 2013

So Far So Good

I ordered 6 Long Island Improved Brussels Sprout Plants but only received 5. I called GrowJoy and they said they would send another plant out the next day and I would receive it the following day and that is exactly what happened. The plants were packaged well and are strong and healthy. So far they are doing great in my garden!

From Lacey | June 28, 2013

From francis | May 10, 2013

These people are GREAT!!!!!

I purchased Brussels Sprouts from 2 different suppliers and GrowJoy blew the competition away. The plants were healthier and the packaging was awesome-there were no broken leaves or stems. The soil was still moist and the plants just looked and smelled fresher.
