Just received my reblooming compact lilac plants, (Syringa Bloomerang), and just had to write to you (something I have never done before). They were so much fuller and more beautiful than I had expected. I came across your site by accident when searching for these plants, and you happened to have them as the Deal of Day. Oh, how I wish I'd bought a couple more at that fabulous price. But at least I'm glad I found your company, and am looking forward to doing business with you again.
