Seamless service (from order to invoice to delivery). Excellent products. Easy-to-navigate site. This was useful for beautifying our office environment, where we did not have the time & materials to take on a DIY potting project.

Great plant / rough delivery

4 out of 5 stars

The plant and pot are excellent. Though for delivery the driver got into a tiff with my neighbor as he blocked her driveway for a few minutes. When she asked him to move he told her she had to wait for him to deliver the plant.
