They came in good health

Very Nice Shrubs!

The 6 shrubs arrived in good condition. I followed the instructions and planted them a few days later. They're small compared to the overgrown bushes we pulled out, but so far they look great!

They were smaller than expected for the cost. Expected them to be more established. The heat and wind have beaten them hard, hoping they will survive.

Hello! Thank you for your feedback. As mentioned on our website, we ship young plants with well established root systems. The important thing when it comes to purchasing plants, whether online or in a garden center, is that they have a full, robust root system, and that's what we prioritize in our growing. The more roots a plant has, the more energy it can put into growing once it is planted in your garden. We have a 60-day guarantee on all our plants. If you experience any trouble, please let us know.

Not suitable for North Texas (Zone 8)

These trees are being advertised as suitable for Zone 8 (which includes North Texas, specifically Dallas-Ft. Worth). We bought 7 trees and after receiving them we followed all the instructions recommended to avoid stressing the plants, planted them and put mulch around them except on the trunk, etc; we also put an irrigation system and the plants thrived. During the Spring, the trees looked gorgeous, BUT after the horrible heat wave we had in 2022, all my Fluffy Arborvitaes died. All 6 trees, except one and you can tell it's doing horribly. Not sure why these nurseries continue to advertise these plants are suitable for hot weather. They are not. Save your money and buy something that's natural to your location.

Hi Susana,
We are so sorry to hear that your plants didn't make it through the heat wave. Our in-house customer service team of experienced gardeners and horticulture experts is available to help with your unique questions. Just email claims@greatgardenplants.com with your questions!
