"Anemic Asparagus Plants"
William G on 5/17/2019 6:41:43 PM
Comment: I have ordered asparagus plants from several other online/mail order companies over the past 20 years always receiving pretty nice plants. These, however, were the tiniest, most pitiful looking ones I have ever gotten. I could have gotten much nicer ones for less money at my local farm store. Extremely disappointed!
William, we are sorry to hear the plants sent to you were not up to our standards. Please send us an email so we can get you some replacement plants headed your direction. GrowJoy

Comment: The plants are in a little dry condition and one only had one stalk left with it but I decided to stay with it because it was in good condition to see if it would out this my first time growing this type of plant will see if they hold on for the years and produce many stalks of asparagus to come.

"Jersey Knight Asparagus Crowns"

Comment: My asparagus crowns arrived apparently at the right time. I followed the planting instructions and was quite surprised to find the quantity was more than ordered. I guess they thought the extras were in case they didn't arrive safely. Well I won't tell how many extras I got, as I wouldn't want to get any body in trouble. But I will say I got 100% survival rate. Thank you very much.

Comment: I ordered the crowns online, to be shipped USPS. They arrived in a timely manner, in perfect condition, with detailed instructions. I couldn't be more pleased. Will most certainly use this company in the future.

"Asparagus growing strong"

Comment: Very fast delivery and I received the Asparagus crowns in great shape. They were packaged very well and looked great. Got them planted in about a week of when I bought 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.
