Great service and quality from Gardener Direct!
August 10th 2014
by Kendall - St Matthews, South Carolina
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.

Guaranteed Safe Shipping & Perfection Packaging

The pots themselves are secured within the box, guaranteeing that the weight of the soil and pot will not crush the rest of the plant if ever turned upside down during shipping.
The soil is also secured within the pot to ensure that the soil and root system stay intact regardless of the box position. Additional steps are taken to make sure that the rest
of the plant has limited possibility of sustaining damage due to common handling issues while in transit. But even if your plant does get hurt while in shipping, our warranty has
