Plant spacing is based on the ultimate width of the plants. This figure is normally given as a range; for example, 3-5’. If you live in a cold climate and/or want plants to fill in more quickly, plan to space at the shorter end of the range. If you live in a warm climate, are on a limited budget, or are willing to wait longer for plants to touch, use the higher end of the range. Using the larger number is recommended when calculating distance from a building or structure. There’s really no such thing as "maximum spacing": if you don’t want your plants to touch, you can space them as far apart as you’d like. All plant spacing is calculated on center, or in other words, the centers of the plants are spaced one half of their eventual width apart:
Unless you are planting in a straight line, as you might for hedges or edging, space your plants in a staggered or zig-zag pattern for a more interesting and naturalistic look:

Arrives as young plant
Was hoping the plants would be blooming a lot more. They look very healthy and I've applied an organic fertilizer to encourage more blooms. So far blooms have been scarce. Looking forward to next year when they'll be more established.
Hello! When transplanting young plants from a nursery pot to a garden, the plant allocates more energy to root development instead of shoot development (above ground). It's important for them to develop a robust root system so they can actually absorb the nutrients and water in the soil around them. Then after their root system is more developed they'll invest in their shoots and flower development.
We do not recommend fertilizing this late in the season as it promotes tender new growth that can be damaged by frost. We have a Rose care guide on our blog here that you might find helpful: https://blog.greatgardenplants.com/questions-answered-series-roses-rosa/
Very please with the way Great Garden Plants handled my claim. They were courteous and professional. My replacement order which arrive quickly with no damage was ready to plant.. Thank you and my roses look great!
Lots of beautiful blooms and growth within a short period of time. Spoke with customer service and they are super friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable.
The mazus are in the “sleeping” stage. Will have to wait until next year to know if they will “creep”.
New home and started a new garden. Although you have a great selection of product, I feel you're over priced given the size of the plants. My local store had similar plants for almost half the price and a much larger plant. What I will say is your customer service is wonderful.
