When I was given the opportunity to make my choice after placing in the latest raffle, I decided to opt for the three rose plants from Perfect Plants. But roses are marginal here in Southwest Florida, and I had looked at their website and found some other plants that were tempting, so I thought I'd see if they were open to a switch. That was pretty cheeky of me!! (and I would not necessarily recommend this course of action...).
I would have fully understood if they had declined but in fact they were very agreeable to the idea, so I chose to receive Agapanthus instead. They kept me informed on the shipping time and date, and today a box arrived at my door. A BIG box!

When I opened it, I saw one of the plants was already trying to climb out Hilarious!

I opened it fully, and found three beautiful plants, as fresh as if they had been packed up five minutes before, with stakes holding them firmly in place and with plastic bags tied around the pots to keep the soil from drying out/spilling out.

That was not all! A leaflet explaining what to do next, as well as three baggies of fertilizer were included.

I will plant these later today in their assigned location.
I'm delighted with the beautiful plants, as well as the great customer service I received from Perfect Plants!

They are! I won in one of the past NARRS and chose the three roses. They were out of stock on the one I wanted so I asked if they would consider sending it next season (which is now) and they said yes! I should be receiving them sometime this month. Can't wait!

Congratulations Hetty! Hurray! Perfect Plants is one of the BEST online nurseries I've ever had the pleasure of doing business with. They pack and ship with such great care and their customer service is A+++! I won plants in a raffle a couple of years ago and I've also purchased from their company since.

I hope you will consider leaving your lovely review/recommendation (and photos) for them here at our green pages: Perfect Plants

Agree 100%!! You've taken the words right out of my mouth. I received my 3 'Sunny Knockout' Roses today. They are quality plants that were perfectly packed and arrived in excellent condition. I chose them not only because yellow is my favorite color, but they were touted as being the only scented Knockout. There are flowers on them now and we could smell them even before the box was completely opened; just incredible! I love them.
PS I'd also like to mention how very nice it was to 'speak' with my Perfect Plants contact, Jaime. Excellent experience.
