Customer Reviews

follow up to received dead plant
Review by babtex
I previously sent a review in that my creeping red thyme arrived dead. And only a credit is allowed (all that is accurate) but I mentioned I wasn't seeing "supplies" so I could play it safe and apply my credit there, so I wouldn't receive another dead plant. I was hesitant to purchase anything live again. The comment I wasn't seeing a "supply option" was pre-coffee and there is indeed a supply option. However my advice still stands. Consider how delicate your item is and how far it will be shipping. I just wanted to clear that up.
Received dead plant
Review by babtex
I purchased creeping red thyme, and when I received it, it was dead. I immediately sent photos and then followed up with a call bc I didn't hear back. They will only allow a credit. I'm hesitant to order again for the same reason. I was hoping to apply my credit to a garden accessory that is not a live plant, or seeds but I'm not finding that to be an option. Just beware of how delicate an item is and far it will be shipped. I hope they don't delete this review so I can spare someone else of wasting their hard earned money.
