    August Beauty Gardenia was a delightful surprise. First time I had ordered from you, and was astounded when my plant arrived heavily laden with buds. Some have already bloomed. Will check out your site again in the fall. Also appreciated the instructions on caring for my plant.

    Not happy that this wasn't blooming when it arrived. But it seems like the plant is at least healthy. I hope it blooms soon, because I have guests arriving and want my garden to look nice!
