This spring I ordered a few things, among them was this spicebush plant (I wish I got 2!) and some blueberries from Stark Bros. Man, the quality difference is staggering. My spicebush came in tip-top condition, big, healthy, tips trimmed, well-packaged and secured. Stark bros sent me a blueberry plant that was potted in a heavy 4x4 pot, and crushed itself on the way to my home... it was doomed before it even showed up (and they want me to wait 4 weeks and give them a scratch test to prove it's really dead before they refund me!!!)
I'll be buying whatever I can from here from now on!
So far, the bush has done well since being planted.
Nice product and was surprised how tall these bushes were when they arrived, thanks.
Packaged very well and healthy. I planted the bare-root spice bushes in a pot indoors, because I raise butterflies. I have a spice bush outside that attracts the butterflies to lay eggs. I will bring in the eggs and caterpillars and set them on the indoor plants.
I was thrilled to get these. Popped them into prepared holes and can’t wait till spring! Love the 1year guarantee. Great company!
