    I received my plants is very good condition. I was very impressed with the size and root mass of the plants, particularly for the VERY reasonable price. The other 4 people who shared the order were quite happy with the plants. I will surely recommend you to anyone considering blueberries. Now if I can cope with my alkaline soil and hard water. Thank you and the best of luck with your business.

    The plants arrived safely on Wednesday. They are all potted up and waiting to get outside in a couple weeks. I am extremely pleased with their nice size and root development. Wish I bought more! Hopefully with a successful summer, I will be in touch to order more next spring.

    Thanks again.
