    Hello, I ordered a large number of sky pencils by mail. I was a little skeptical from the outset but it was easy and less expensive than going to a local nursery. The plants arrived in great shape, healthy and tall. Also, I emailed and spoke to Christy several times. A solid overall experience. I recommend.

    The plants arrived very healthy and packed with care. I had ordered 6 but have planted 4 so far. I would order plants again from this business.

    I was a little worried ordering these in the heat of summer and shipping such an upright/rigid plant. The shipping was fast and packaging was great. Both are doing great in ground!

    Excellent service. Fully satisfied with the order.

    Only two of the five I ordered survived. The three that died were too large for the shipping box and were folded/bent to fit inside the box, and were dead at the top 1/4, or so when they arrived. All three of those died. The two that survived look nice and seem to be growing.

    I ordered 25 Japanese Holly plants to create a hedge between me and my neighbor. I scanned out neighborhood garden centers and could not find plants of the same size in these quantities. They arrived in great condition. They are in the ground now and all doing very well.

    I also orders some small
    knockout roses. They are doing great and look superb. If you are looking for more than the odd plant, plants by mail is the way to go.

    I ordered 2 of these. They arrived in great shape. These were my first purchase. I will be ordering from here again.

    Part of my Sky Pencil Holly plant order just arrived. I ordered 2.4 gal and I’m fully satisfied Hopefully the others arrive and are as beautiful

    I bought two of them. They are so interesting to look at and they don’t bush out. I have the perfect window to put them in front of to tackle some of the summer sun. At least I hope they like it. I will take good care of them and maybe order more. They were both 3ft tall and came in special cardboard boxes that were tall and had tabs close to the bottom that held the pot steady. I have never had plants sent to me in such good condition. VERY HEALTHY!! I live in an isolated town in Arizona and don’t like to drive, so I order plants online. By far this is the best online provider for plants. I plan I ordering from them again and again.
