Customer Reviews & Photos
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!
Great! I hope the deer will not eat them next winter! They look wonderful!
I ordered 38 of skip laurel. All of the bushes had date on them, there were 2 groups, one from 10/18, and another from 12/18. All the bushes dated from 12/18 were in a horrible condition, smaller than others and had almost no leaves. Had about 8 bushes from that date. It seems like nursery mixed in poor quality plants with the good ones on purpose to get rid of them. However when the price is almost $100, I expect every bush to look decent.
We're so sorry to hear this! Please send us some photos so we can take a look at the plants you received and help out!
Didnt Survive Chicago Winter
We planted these in Spring. They were very nice but did not make it through the brutal winter we had in Chicago. There were a few weeks of very very cold weather. 50 below zero on some days, so I can see why they died. We had the warranty so we were credited the money and will buy something else. Just have to pull out 15 bushes and plant 15 of something more cold tolerant. Wish they would've made it.
