Plants were delivered in a timely manner in a box designed to protect them during transit. Each plant was in a four inch container wrapped to ensure soil remained damp. The plants were strong and healthy. Much thought and care went into the growing and delivery of these plants. The result was a high quality product for a fair price. Thank you.

I would have liked to give them 5 stars since they arrived healthy but were different sizes. When I took them out of the 2.5 quart containers more than half of the plants showed very small root systems and looked like they were recently transplanted from 4" pots. They came right out of the pot in a 4" rectangular shape with an abundance of dirt remaining in the 2.5 quart pot.

The plants arrived in great shape and are doing well in my garden. I gave them 4 stars because I wish their coloration had been a little more blue in tone (like the ones in the local nurseries). I could not find the plants locally, thus my purchase, however, shortly after I got these and planted them my local nursery did get them in and theirs were much bluer in tone, versus green.
