Customer Testimonials

Brian, just have to say that Colin was extremely nice & helpful when I placed my ordered & answered many questions. There is not an "excellent" choice in your survey questions or I would have chose that. I always look to Sooner first because of your friendly helpfulness, quality of plants, and superb packaging. As always, many thanks for all of it
