Great quality Tree came again from New-Blooms. Thank you!

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.

Best Mail Order Purchase EVER

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."
Big thanks!
