Good sized plants, packaged nicely.

The plants were healthy looking and packaged nicely. The Cassian fountain grass was severely root bound (it was almost all root and very little dirt) I made sure to cut and release as much of the root I could and dug the hole deeper and wider than normal so it would have plenty of loose dirt to grow into. Will see how it does in the spring. Will certainly buy again in the future.

Wonderful. Very healthy looking plants. Great packaging, no damage done to the plants, very impressed with how the plants looked. Will plant as soon as weather warms up a bit. Ordered from this company also last year and the plants did very well. Thanks for sending healthy looking plants. Ordered from many different companies, Planting Tree is the best.
