                I ALWAYS LIKE THE PLANTS I GET FROM YOU. THEY ALL DO MUCH BETTER THE SECOND YEAR IN THE GROUND I ONLY BUY PERENIALS. SO FAR I HAVE ORDERED TWO YEARS IN A ROW.

                      I'm still waiting for some growth to appear on the Larkspur or wild Delphinium. I will wait to recommend until some life appears.

                      I always buy and recomend American Meadows because they always stand behind their plants. This years Dahlias have turned out to be great and well worth the wait!

                      Great job and outstand customer service!

                      I have been happy with many of my purchases from American Meadows so it is a pity you asked me to review this particular one. Root stock was tiny and I was not surprised not one grew.
