Our new friend the silver evergreen arrived in a box that was an architectural wonder, lush and in perfect condition. A week later it is thriving and beautifying our kitchen as if it had been delivered by hand from the nursery.

I’ve always buy smaller plants but decided to try a larger one. Glad I did. So far so good. Just hope we last a very long time. I’m following the instructions on keeping it alive and well. I like your after sale follow-up. It’s great. Thanks for continuing to care about your plants after they are sold.

I hesitated to order due to the cost, but love the selection (plants and pots) on this site so much more than others, so went for it. Plants arrived quickly, were well-packaged, and look great. Hope I can keep them looking this way!

Had a great experience. I had also ordered some plants from the Sill but since they came in through the mail system they arrived a bit traumatized. The two plants I got from Leon and George came in great shape and was definitely very nice that they were not just delivered to my door - but directly to my living room!

Delivery took a long time to process. Not the promised time frame.
