I ordered 5 citrus -- one being a 5 gal. At $10.00 each for shipping I thought it was a deal. Order came 3 days ago & boxes were crushed.
The 5 gal should really be considered a 3 gal. 3 of the five had Leafminers! Leaves were curled & brown. The one plant w/ fruits lost 2 of 8 in shipping . Thank god no branches were broken. I would give them a negative if Ruth hadn't sent me a free sample of fish emulsion & some fertilizer. On my 5 gal. Moro blood orange (really a 3 gal), there are now several branches w/ no leaves. I took the bad ones off & rest fell off. Some one else who ordered from them said their 5 gal was 5 ft high & 4 ft wide. Mine is 42 inches high (from floor) & less than 2 ft wide. I feel sorta cheated. Hope I got rid of the leaf miners --I sprayed w/F.emulsion they gave me (maybe that's why they gave it for free!)

Got email today from Ruth at Harris. She told me to send the plants back for a full refund which was VERY NICE of her (of course not to be resold!). I also think she was right when she said the 'other' person may have exaggerated her tree being 5 ft. high. The box it came in was just over 4 ft!! She's a very nice person, but they should not send trees that have leafminers! Many leaves were affected & I found 3 with larvea. On the Garden Web, people say it won't hurt the tree or fruit, just take all the bad leaves off & get rid of the LM. I hear that in Fl., LM are normal (?). I decided to keep the trees as it would cost me more to ship them back, & I think I got rid of the LM but I'll have to watch...they may be in the soil. I do appreciate the quick response from Ruth!
