Comment: Growjoy has the best tomato plants of anyone! I’ve purchased plants from lots of mail order nurseries as well as local nurseries, and Growjoy’s plants are the healthiest and most productive and pest and disease free. I always place orders in January and they always arrive in perfect condition packed in plastic containers and wrapping. You will not be disappointed.
