    Beautiful Bushes

    Received my well packaged lilac bushes plus a Hummingbird Tree gift. Soaked them overnight and planted them the next day. The lilac bushes have taken off very fast and are looking good. It has been over 2 wks and I was worried about the Hummingbird Tree but, this morning I spotted little red buds. Looking good!!

    My order came in good packaging, and every plant, I purchased bushes and trees, had nicely developed roots and at least 2 feet plant height. As instruction recommended, I put all plants in water over night and planted next day that was 5 days ago. So far, all plants look good, and some already started new growth! I'll be purchasing from them again.
