The forsythia was healthy when it arrived but I was disappointed that they were just a single stem rather than being a little fuller.
Arrived quickly but each had broken limbs at the base. Hope the are not lopsided when mature.
I received the order and immediately planted them. They are doing great and I was impressed the size. I will be ordering more from you! Thank you for helping home gardeners! Kip
