Thank you for your purchase and support of our important mission of planting to help wildlife. We are glad to hear you were happy with the condition of your plants upon arrival. A couple of people have mentioned that their plants haven't yet emerged after winter, and we want to assure you that this is to be expected. Our plant collections are curated to bloom over three seasons each year so they can help the highest numbers of wildlife species. This means they will also emerge at varied times. It's more likely that your plants are just still "sleeping" and it's not quite their time to emerge yet! We've just published this blog post to help set expectations around emergence timing: https://gardenforwildlife.com/blogs/learning-center/spring-when-do-plants-wake-up. Please feel free to email us with any questions. We are optimistic that you will see beautiful blooms from all your plants this spring, summer, and fall when it's the right time. Thank you again for your support! The birds, bees, and butterflies thank you too! :)

SO PRETTY

The whole experience was so great. I love not having to think about exactly what I need to buy to help our wildlife. The plants arrived beautiful and healthy and the layout design was so helpful in deciding where to plant them.

Loved everything

My plants came in very good condition and some even had blooms on them already! I saw so many bees and butterflies, and even a monarch which was so exciting! I can't wait to see what happens this year - some of my plants have already shown new growth!
