    Great Plants

    Posted by Donnah Thomas on May 11th 2020

    I searched high and low at my local stores and nurseries for the type of sage i wanted. None of the stores had what I wanted, so I did some online searching. I was very skeptical about ordering live plants and having them shipped. Once they arrived I was more than impressed with how good the quality of the plant was. They arrived well packaged and undamaged. Plus, I had to wait a few days before I could plant them and they still looked great. I will definitely purchase from this site again.
