I live in central South Carolina and ordered the LSU Purple Fig tree - my first purchase online. Within 36 hours of placing the order, it was sitting on my porch. I was pleased to see how well it was packed into the special designed shipping box. Not a leaf was bent, torn, or damaged. It was as tall as advertised also. Within the day of arrival, I had transferred it into a 20 gal whiskey barrel planter. Since day 1, it has almost doubled in size and I will be planting it into the ground this fall. Can't say enough about the service and quality that I received. I will look no further for my future plant and tree needs.


Very satisfied!
