Curbside Pickup Testimonials

"The pick-up went very smoothly!"

"I really appreciate all the work that went into the efforts so that we can buy plants from you. It's really impressive. Having to manage the inventory just by itself is a huge effort... let alone everything else. Thank you for doing this."

"The experience was great!" 

"It worked very well, I cannot think of anything else."

"Having Taylor load my plant into the car was great! Also I could ask him a question and return shortly thereafter with 4 rooted cuttings to give him for future Arboretum use. Very well thought out."

"As far as I am concerned, the pick-up was PERFECT!"

"The entire online plant sale was very well organized and the communication with buyers was clear and complete. Kudos to all involved in this complicated operation!"

"The pick-up was smooth as can be. THANK YOU."
