ReviewsWrite a reviewOnline purchase leaves a bad taste in my mouth.Rick | Jun 8, 2020This was my first order from great garden plants. I had issues with the account creation during setup and they were unwilling to correct. Secondly, I chose a ship date after the 8th because I was out of town until then. When I arrived home, I found this already waiting for me. Third, the plant was very small and root bound. If I were to pick this out at a garden center, I would not have chosen this particular specimen. Not willing to correct the account issue, not honoring the ship date and plus the weak specimen I can't justify a good review.
