I ordered a number of different plant collections, of these only my 12 swamp milkweed plants had tumbled somewhere along the way (bent stems, covered in their own dirt even though they had been individually enclosed as carefully as possible to prevent this sort of mess, my guess would be this box went down a flight of stairs by itself) all 3 other boxes had remained upright as marked, all 4 boxes looked perfect. I mention the plants which were stressed in transit because they also looked outstanding 24 hours after going into the ground. I was amazed. This would not have been possible if they had not been in beautiful health to begin with. thank you!

Excellent business, will buy from again

Excellent packaging for protection and healthy upon arrival. Very helpful with communications and prompt responses. Highly recommend this shop and look forward to future purchases.

Swamp milkweed plugs arrived on time and are growing beautifully in my garden.
