I felt the plants were too small to survive. They were packaged nicely and arrived in good shape, however did not survive even though I watered them daily

Hello! While we do ship young plants, all of our plants leave our greenhouse with well established root systems. In regards to watering, even in the summer, daily watering could potentially be too much water. Especially if your soil is not well draining. Here is a resource on how much water to give your plants: https://blog.greatgardenplants.com/how-much-water-should-i-give-my-plants/

Please email pictures of the plant to claims@greatgardenplants.com, making sure to put your order number and name in the subject line so that we may provide the best assistance possible. Rest assured, we do have a 60-day guarantee on all of our plants. If you received your plants within that timeframe, we will be happy to apply your warranty once we receive the pictures. Happy Gardening!

Buy well in advance

I purchased Pardon My Lavender II Bee Balm for the purpose of putting them on the headstones for the Memorial weekend. I needed to replace the tulips that had been eaten by critters. Sadly, these bee balm arrived in rather beat up condition. I didn't feel I could use them as intended. I know bee balm is tough and prolific so I put all 6 plants in a container and cut them back by at least half. It is now mid-July and the plants have rebounded but no new blossoms. I'm sure they'll be great next year.
