Didn’t all make it.

We ordered five plants but two didn’t survive and the remaining three haven’t flowered yet. These were a gift so I am very disappointed.

Hello! We're sorry to hear that a few of your plants have died. 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. https://www.greatgardenplants.com/pages/our-guarantee

In regards to flowering. Keep in mind that when transplanting young plants from a nursery pot to a garden, the plant allocates more energy to root development instead of shoot development (above ground). It's important for them to develop a robust root system so they can actually absorb the nutrients and water in the soil around them. Then after their root system is more developed they'll invest in their shoots and flower development. They generally spend their first year growing roots in their new home, the second year they have more energy to put into growth, and the third year, they are growing and flowering vigorously. This applies to plants in the garden center as well as plants you purchase online. We hope this helps. Happy Gardening!

its blooming but does not look like a healthy growing plant. its in a pot and hasnt grown very much...only about 5inches.

Hello! We're happy to hear that you Bee Balm is blooming. It's hard to say for certain why you're not seeing as much growth as you'd like, since so many factors - like weather, soil type, watering, and fertilizing all come into play. Perhaps you're familiar with the old saying about plants: first year sleep, second year creep, third year leap. This applies to plants in the garden center as well as plants you purchase online. They generally spend their first year growing roots in their new home, the second year they have more energy to put into growth, and the third year, they are growing and flowering vigorously. Happy Gardening!
