Fresh Lettuce

The lettuce arrived fresh and green and has done very well since I planted it.

From virginia | April 14, 2022

Always pleased

I ordered the lettuce plants last year and they were so beautiful and so tasty. This year I ordered even more and I think they are even more beautiful and tasty if that’s even possible. They are doing wonderful and my family just can’t get enough fresh salad. I am so glad I found Grow Joy and will continue to get my plants from here. Their quality is the best!

Summertime Lettuce

The plant came to me healthy with moist and mature roots. That's all one can ask. It isn't particularly thriving but that is probably my lack of attention at the front. It will live. Take care of them when they arrive and are in the ground.

Summertime Lettuce

I love ordering from GrowJoy because the orders always arrive promptly and their plants are always well packaged. The plants seem to do very well when transplanting. I am really surprised on how well these lettuce plants are doing in our hot Texas weather. I have given them some shade which I know has helped. I see they have a lot of new growth, which makes me very happy!

From Brenda | July 08, 2013
