Customer Testimonials

I was very pleased with the quality of the plants and the great condition they were in upon arrival. I am very excited about the wide collection of plants and the large range of sizes available for future orders. I have ordered in the past from other nurseries with large collections, but the quality was unreliable and the size availability limited. I will order again and will likely plan on picking up my order on the designated day since I live in the Bixby area.
