    Plant Addicts. Purple Diamond...

    Posted by Woody Foster on Jun 26th 2021

    The plant just arrived in excellent shape. It’s out of box, in place and watered. Will probably get it in the ground tomorrow. The plant container was packaged in a plastic bag to keep the water and dirt from spilling into the box. The cardboard box was the exact size of the container.
    each corner of the box had a push in indenture just above the top of the container that keep the plant from shifting during shipment. It was in excellent condition.

    It has been in the ground about a week now and is doing great.

    The folks at Plant Addicts are great. You will not be disappointed.
