Tough travel
Customer review from Brighter Blooms logo
The 3 Skip Laurel Shrubs arrived looking very dry and tired. Hopefully they'll spring back to life. They didn't look very happy.

For the price the bushes
Customer review from Brighter Blooms logo
For the price the bushes were much smaller and not as healthy as they should have been. The advertising is deceiving

Arrived later than they had
Customer review from Brighter Blooms logo
Arrived later than they had predicted according to the website - the poor shrub is in pretty sad shape. I think there was a delivery delay as you can see from the roots that it was healthy - now just a lot of yellow leaves. Going to have to stay in the greenhouse to recover as we are part of a garden tour so I can't have it out in the garden. Oh well - it will be fine by next year.

I recieved 2 scrawny plants, contacted them directly to work it out and was advised to send a photo of the plants. I did, no response. Insult to injury I went to the Home Depot Hyattsville MD, where the same plants in much better shape where there for $29.99 each
