Lilac bush was much smaller than it should have been for the price .

Too small. Single stem for $45. I’ve learned my lesson from buying online without a picture of the actual plant being shipped.


My lilac trees shipped fast, and arrived in great shape.

Great quality plant. I like my lilac bush. Thank for your good service.

Happy to find a fairly local nursery/garden center with great quality plants. Pictured are my two common lilacs received very well protected in their shipping container. They are thriving and I can't wait to enjoy the beautiful blooms and fragrance that remind me of mom's favorite. Customer service was also excellent. I would not hesitate to order from them.
