I couldn't be more pleased with the wonderful plants I ordered!! They were packed so carefully and with love....I could tell. :) I can hardly wait to order again now that I've finally found a caring, honest source to purchase plants that I'm unable to obtain in my small town. Warm hugs and blessings all around
