Waltham Butternut Squash Plant

They are gigantic. I have several butternut squash… my neighbors walk along by my house and they are amazed at the size.

Butternut Squash Live Plant

Our plants arrived quickly and in great condition. A huge relief since it wound up being much hotter on their shipping path than I’d hoped for. No worries, these little beauties were well packaged and protected. Every plant made it through transplant and are thriving after 4 days in the ground. Based on our 1st experience, I will definitely purchase live plants from GrowJoy in the future. Thank you for a wonderful plant product!

Plants arrived professionally packed and in perfect condition. The plants are large and very healthy and are now thriving in my garden. This is a company that provides an excellent product in a timely manor which is not easy to do with live produce. I would absolutely order from GrowJoy again!!
