Arrived very fast and in perfect condition. Plant looks very healthy and is thriving, will definitely order from nursery again!
Overall, great experience buying from New Blooms. Their website is great. I got my Oakleaf Hydrangea in a secure box. The plant itself came without leaves, and its roots wrapped in moist paper. It didn't seem right at first because II'm used to other sellers sending it in big box with the plant with leaves, and potted. Anyway, after only a week in the ground, my Hydrangea is now growing leaf buds and looks healthy. Thank you!
Still waiting to see how the plant does. It's been a couple weeks and still no growth.
