I ordered hornwort to try and tackle my blanket weed problem. Plants were packed in newspaper that was a bit messy and I didn’t thnk I got a lot of weed for my money. Saying this, i’ve never ordered pond plants online before and the delivery was on time. I would give 3.5 stars if I could. Will order again to see if i’m just being too picky
