    Arrived in great shape. It is doing well and I'm very happy! I did use the root rocket.

    Healthy Elderberry

    I didn't really know what to expect with this elderberry bush but it arrived healthy and seems to be doing quite well in it's original nursery pot after nearly 2 months (I couldn't re-pot yet due to health issues). I'm looking forward to planting this in my yard early fall and future harvests. Until then, all of my FGT bushes and trees will remain in my outdoor greenhouse for protection from wildlife and my curious puppers who seen to love berry leaves more than bacon!

    Both bushes came a little

    Both bushes came a little shriveled which is to be expected, but the potting soil around the roots had been all tossed around and most of it wasn't in the pots any more. Need a better packaging and better shipping company.

    Fast Growing Trees Plant ExpertHi Jeremy! We apologize that your plants weren't in their pots upon arrival! Thank you for the feedback and if you have any issues with the plants please let us know so we can make it right!

    Great Tree

    Very happy with this purchase. A truly established tree in the pot. Have had trouble with lesser companies putting a bare root tree in a pot of dirt right before shipping. This is the real deal. Will buy from this company again.

    Another Great Purchase!

    Arrived in great shape. Looking forward to many years of delicious berries ahead. Planted next to my blueberry plants, which ate about the size this will hopefully get to! I have ordered before from this company, and would recommend it.
