Outstanding shop! When I consider the cost of materials, the quality of the dirt, the time and effort involved in individually packaging each plant in beautifully folded newspaper to prevent mess and the fact that nothing can actually be shipped for free — this shop is somebody’s serious labor of love. Every plant I ordered (29 potted plants) looked very good 24 hours after going into the ground and all look epic and gorgeous one week later. thank you for being such a fabulous butterfly resource and all the time and love you put into something (for example the care of the plants) —I don’t think you can possibly be making much of a profit so I and the world’s local critters thank you for your love.
