Greatly exceeded my expectations!
Given how beautiful the plants and planters looked on the web site, I decided to give this a go. But, I’m well aware of how plants can look after shipping! But this Cast Iron plant came packaged by the most amazing (and effective) plant and planter packing I’ve ever seen…with good instructions. The plant is absolutely beautiful and I keep walking by looking at it in amazement. After getting the first one, I went back on the site and ordered one for my desk. I love the way they classify the products, particularly the “pet friendly” classification. I’m obviously a new and ardent fan.
