Comment: All my tomato plants arrived in great shape and healthy. I had previously ordered from another company (begins with a B). They were yellow Some were broken and in very bad shape. I had to throw most of them in my composter. I'll never shop anywhere else again. Thank you for great work!

Comment: I really can't rate this product as of yet, because I just received it and just planted it yesterday. All I can say at the moment is that I liked the way the plant was packaged when I received it. The packaging was very unique in the way it prevented the plant from any damage during shipping.
