Great gift for Mom and the planet!

I ordered this collection for my mom for her birthday, and she was absolutely thrilled. Everything was packaged well and arrived in perfect condition, and she appreciated the information that was included in the box. Since all of these plants will help butterflies, birds and other pollinators, this collection is the gift that keeps on giving. I highly recommend!

Some did, some didn't.....

The Orange Butterfly Milkweed wasn't in good shape when it arrived and in spite of planting quickly and following directions, they didn't last. I realize that one takes a chance when purchasing live plants on-line and can't expect it to work out all the time, but gosh darn, it was the Milkweed that we wanted to really do well.

Nice plants, one was damaged perhaps in its journey

One of the milkweed plants was puny and wilted upon arrival. The other 5 were robust. I watered them all immediately and transplanted into the ground the next day. The jury is still out as to whether it will survive, but I have several other established milkweed plants, all with white flowers. The other milkweed seems healthy and robust.

Great plants

I bought the Monarch Munchables, the Summer Songbird, the Hummingbird Heroes and the Great St. Johns wort collections. The plants were well packaged and in excellent shape when they arrived. They're now planted and still doing well. I can't wait to see what happens in the spring! Plus, there was a tiny little toad in the Monarch Munchables box when we opened it which was was a really fun little surprise! He's also doing quite well out back! Thank you so much!
