Excellent plants and service

Complete Satisfaction

I had never ordered from GrowJoy before, but really wanted to grow some peppers I couldn't find locally. I ordered three varieties of hot peppers and couldn't be happier! Every pepper was very healthy, protected nicely in the packaging, and got to my doorstep in a timely fashion. I will definitely order from GJ again!

Love these Peppers. I add them to my salsa for that added little kick. This is my 3rd year ordering them from GrowJoy and they've always arrived in excellent condition.

Tabasco Pepper Plant

My Pepper plant arrived by mail two days after it shipped. The plant was healthy and strong,and actually a little larger than I was expecting. The plant is doing well in the ground now and I'm very satisfied with my experience with GrowJoy.

Tabasco Pepper Plant

The plants were in excellent condition when they arrived. I thought they would be smaller so I was pleasantly surprised to see how big they were. Very impressed with GrowJoy!
