    Great Company……

    Although my plants arrived late and sat in the mailbox for 24 hours, due to the fact that they were packed, so beautifully, survived! Transplanted each, and every one of them into pots on their own, and they have come back looking very good! The company did great the United States, Postal Service… Not so much.

    Started Growing Immediately

    Really happy with the quality of these strawberry plants. It's still too early to harvest, of course, but the bare-root plants were healthy when we received them, and responded well when we put them into the soil. We kept them in a damp paper towel in the refrigerator for a handful of days before planting them due to rain, and they still did well. Thanks, Michael and team!
