I was excited to receive my order of three 1 & 2 gal. maples. I had read great feedback and spoke to the very nice & helpful owner. She emailed me pictures of the plants. Beautiful. However, when the trees arrived, 2 were grafts, the other a 1 gal. The tops of the grafts were crispy, all the leaves of the one gal. were brown and fell off within days. I did get a quick "I'm sorry" email, but that's it. I didn't get the impression that sending pictures of the trees out of the box would make an impression. Grafts aren't an appropriate fit into the planned area , so I am out $ and still need to replace with larger trees. I am very disappointed, I had intended to buy many more from the company.

For the record, I ordered by telephone no more than 10 minutes after I received the pictures. After several delightful phone conversations that day, I'm sorry not to be remembered as a she, not a he. However, since no one else has had such problems, hopefully it was an unusual issue. Still, at the end of the day, I'm out plants and dollars.

When this customer e-mailed to say that he had received the wrong size plant, he did not mention any problem with the quality of the plants. Had he done so, I would have replaced or refunded immediately. As for the size of the plants, he did not order soon after I sent him pics so I had no recollection what I had sent pics of and when he ordered later, I (obviously incorrectly) thought he wanted grafts. I am very sorry to have disappointed this fellow. "
