I am extremely pleased with the baskets that I got from this nursery. I ordered the Wandering Jew hanging plant and a begonias hanging plant. The plants arrived in perfect condition and were very healthy, and they are thriving since I got them. Attached is a picture of the Wandering Jew plant, shown in my own hanger. Highly recommend!
