    Healthy Plants

    The inkberry was super healthy and happy even after I accidentally left them in the box a couple of days after they arrived!

    Three of Five survived

    Posted by JM on Jun 30th 2019

    I planted five fall 2017. By spring 2019, three have survived and are growing well. I attribute the loss to my own cultural practices and the many deer in my country location. If you have deer pressure, I'd recommend protecting the young plants until they are at least 2 years old. The survivors will be beautiful shrubs and are a good alternative to the blighted boxwoods.

    It shipped on the day I requested and was well packaged with no shipping damage. It's larger than I expected and even has berries! Very helpful since now I know it's female.

    The 1 gallon plant arrived very healthy, and my hopes are that it will acclimate well to the low and wetter conditions I've planted it in. This is my second attempt at this wonderful native.

    The plants I received were in exceedingly good condition and well packaged. Good, vigorous root balls and healthy foliage. I was very pleasantly surprised in every way. They were shipped exactly when I asked for them. Price was exceptional, too!
