Customer Reviews & Photos
- skip laurels
I am very satisfied. I ordered 14 of them. They arrived very promptly, and were very healthy and packaged with great care. I recommend this company without any reservation. I will definitely use them as a primary source in purchasing my plants.
Too early to tell. Good
Too early to tell. Good size but had a lot of chew holes in leaves
Nice looking !
Our skip laurels have been in the ground for about a month and are looking very much at home! They look healthy and happy where they are. We are hoping that we will see growth by next spring and that the southeastern NY winter will be kind to them. We bought six 3-4 feet plants.
Massive and Healthy
I was delighted to receive 3 bushes that actually were 4', and they had lots of branches that were fully leafed out. These were the largest plants I'd ever ordered online, and was relieved to see how beautiful they looked. After an initial adjustment period where they each lost about 5 leaves, they've moved beyond transplant shock and have stabilized, 1 bush has new growth already. I wouldn't hesitate to order from this company again and I felt I received plants equal in value to their cost. Shipping was perfect, well-packed. I'm using them for a privacy screen.
This was our first experience ordering live plants. We ordered the 2-3’ skip laurels and almost all 30 of them were almost 4’ tall. They were all healthy and have only been in the ground for a few weeks, but we already see a lot of new growth. The customer service was also great and shipping was prompt. Would definitely order again!
