A return customer. Was so impressed with the Native pond starter Collection. All plants were stunningly healthy & good sizes. Fantastic choices made on my behalf & were packaged very well. Several weeks later & all plants are thriving. Customer service is excellent. I have had to call upon them for further advice on a few occasions, & they are always eager to help. Very professional company. The online blog is incredibly helpful, with all the advice you could possibly need on how to care for your pond, plants & inhabitants. I won't shop anywhere else.
