Happy in virginia.

Amazing. I've been back for additional orders. I thought all the information was excellent. I loved the "meet the plants" info! Best thing ever. Made picking for my yard's soil, light, and water requirements super easy. You could ditch the stickers though, or ask if people want them. I had no use for them, just throw them out. or make them compostable...

They never grew beyond a certain point despite compost and regular watering.

Thank you for sharing your experience! The establishment period for native perennial plants can take a bit of time - during this period while the plants are focused on root development visible growth can be slow or minimal. If you have concerns about the growth of your plants, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at orders@gardenforwildlife.com and we will try to help.
