So glad to find this place

I searched extensively for native milkweed for Atlanta and am so glad to have found this place. Plants are doing great with some already blooming after a few weeks. Awesome customer service and transparency about native impact on wildlife! Will order from them again

Love Monarch Munchables!

The baby plants arrived very cleverly packaged. I was a week overdue in planting (two weeks total from their arrival) but only the plant that upon receipt looked ill (Calico Aster with dead leaves) did not survive. Thus, eleven plants are thriving! One Calico Aster was dug up by an animal twice, was re-planted each time, and is still doing well. The design of the containers, as mentioned, is fantastic but I suggest an improvement would be to substitute the plastic with compostable material. I have already seen two butterflies visiting the plants! I AM DELIGHTED WITH THE MONARACH MUNCHABLES!
