Comment: 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.

Comment: 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.

Comment: 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.
