Great plants and great customer serviceI am very pleased with the customer service provided. My plants got delivered to a wrong address (by my mistake) and I wasn't able to get them back. I was sure that I lost my $200 worth of plants, but Gretchen from customer service was absolutely amazing and replaced my order. I was very impressed as I did not expect this to happen at all.
Thank you very much! I will order again!
