New-blooms plants all came in great quality! In addition, the management takes extra time to communicate with me, this is very unusual service for web purchasing.
In January, I ordered two forsythia shrubs from "New-Bloom." Since 1995 I have ordered plants, trees and shrubs online from a variety a vendors and this purchase, from NewBloom was the best online experience ever. After placing my order I was contacted via email from the vendor. They wanted to give me the option to wait until spring (safest planting time) to ship or if I would rather receive my shipment right away (in January). Being a seasoned gardener I chose to have it shipped right away. As promised, my order arrived very quickly with detailed instructions, both on how to care for my plants if I decided to postpone planting and instructions for immediate planting. The shrubs were packaged perfectly; Wrapped in paper and covered in a plastic to prevent moisture loss, and packed in shredded paper and set stationary in the shipping box.
The shrubs were large (approximately 4 feet), well branched and very healthy with a strong root system.
They settled well and in very late winter I enjoyed a vibrant show of lush, golden blossoms the length of the 4 foot stems! This exceeded my expectations by far for a first year bloom. Also, the vendor emailed me again after shipment to see if I had any questions; What wonderful, personal service from a company who truly takes pride in their high quality products!
I should add that I have another forsythia bush that I purchased locally, two or three years ago, 1 gallon size, and I have yet to see that one bloom!...
Exceptional product, personal service, great value - New Bloom is my new, online garden "go-to."
