customer reviews for the Zanzibar Gem

Plants looks great and exactly what I had wanted

When one plant ended up damaged upon receipt, L&G replaced immediately and without any fuss or muss. They also make sure to ship the replacement at a time when it minimized the opportunity for winter and UPS to hurt it. Love the customer service

Amazing customer care!

Leon&George don't just sell you the plants, but are there to help you keep them alive and thriving. Every week I get emails with useful tips and guidance since I bought my first plant from them 7 months ago. My latest order, a Zanzibar Gem, arrived not like I expected it. The plant was healthy but the stems where crooked, almost horizontally. Soon after I contacted Leon&George they sent me a second plant which looks great! Although there are plant nurseries closer to where I live (MD), I don't think I can find better costumer care. Thank you Leon&George for making sure both my plants and I are happy!

beautiful

It arrived frozen. I know thats a problem this time a year. Even as carefully it was packaged. I called customer service and they responded immediately. They’re sending out a new plant. Love to do business with a company that stands behind their products.
