Did not receive the Buddleia alternifolia, Butterfly Bush, as they stated it "wouldn't wake up" . Received a refund but quite disappointed. Also, the Muehlenbeckia, Creeping Wire vine was very root bound and packaging was unclear where to open ("this side up" arrows in wrong direction) and so a lot dirt on my countertop.

I got my plants, and they were packed poorly. The soil was completely out of the pots, and the plants were very dirty.
One plant was missing, so I called the owner. She answered the phone and was very friendly. She said the missing plant would be shipped and was going to be "on us". Only after I put down the phone did I realize that didn't make any sense; I already PAYED for that plant!
So, the plants that I did get are going to live, but it was a bit of a shock to receive them in such a disheveled mess.

The one lemongrass that was sent to me didn't grow, it just sits there... No worse, but no better also...
I am still waiting for the second plant that I ordered and payed for... A month later.On April 7th, 2010, mrs_colla added the following:

The plant that was missing was sent too, thank you. It was packed much better than the first batch.
