Why Our Plants Are Better

Plant Size - What It Means to You


placeholder

At Great Garden Plants, you're off to a great start! When you order plants online, there's more to the consider than just price. The size of the pot that you order has a significant impact on how well the plant grows once it reaches your garden. As experienced horticulturists, we understand the difference that plant size makes in your satisfaction and success. That's why our goal is to provide exceptional quality and value in every plant we sell. Here's a look at our pot sizes so you know what to expect.
