Happy buyer

All the Red Wings Pholox plants are so healthy. This is my second year and I will be back.

Good plants, fast service

We've actually had two different orders recently from GrowJoy, Pink Dianthus plants about six weeks ago, and more recently the Red Wings Phlox. The Dianthus package arrived partly damaged in handling, but because of the individual pot GrowJoy packed them in, all of the Dianthus survived and seem now to be thriving, putting out bright blossoms in the late August coolness of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains. Our second order, of the Phlox, arrived within a few days of our ordering. This box was undamaged and as soon as we planted the Phlox on the border of a flagstone walkway, they seemed to spread a little,  no doubt glad to be out of the box. I have no idea if there will be blooms, as we're pretty late in the season planting them, but they look good. I think you can probably find plants a little cheaper on the online and local markets, but our experience, just based on two orders, is that for consistency, vibrancy and good service, GrowJoy is a first-rate house to deal with. Their folks have given us good advice and support, and I'm sure we'll be doing business with them for a long time.
