    Expensive BUT arrived in EXCELLENT...

    Posted by Claudia B Wolfe on Jul 8th 2021

    I bought the insurance for a modest 10% of the cost of the plants. $30 for a qt size plant I felt expensive but even at the local nurseries, this year seems very high on the cost of plants. They arrived in excellent shape and so far, I am pleased.
