I have ordered from many companies through the years but I have never received any plants like these. I was very excited when the box came but when I opened it I was overwhelmed. I was so taken by the packaging and presentation of the plants. The greatest thing was the fact that you had included a planting guide and more importantly the little facts were included have never been presented to me like this before. There is no doubt that these very wonderful plants will thrive in my garden.
