Customer Comments:

My plants arrived this morning and they are spectacular.  I buy a lot of plants - both online and locally - and NEVER have I received plants that were in better shape than these.  They are fresher even than plants obtained at local nurseries. Thanks so much for your attention to detail.  I know these will be successful in my garden, because they got such a good start in your fields and greenhouses.  I am in love.  Thanks, Ann in Virginia (April, 2020)

"This order arrived in perfect condition today. The packaging worked perfectly. Best mail order plant condition we have seen in our over 40 years of ordering by mail.  Thanks!" Bill in Ohio

"WOW! Just received my order of Sugar Tip Gold Hibiscus today! I am very, very impressed. The packaging was superb and the plants are incredible, healthy and large. I’m so excited! Thank you! I’ll be ordering again." Lisa in Oregon

"I would just like to tell you how happy I am with the way you package your flowers. I received my packages today, and right on the box it read this side up. Well of course I found it laying on its side. If your employees had not packaged those flowers so securely, I would have had a big mess. Before moving to Florida, I could always get Proven Winners at the nurseries in Michigan. Not a great selection down here, so I decided to order online and so far I am very satisfied. Thank you very much."   RoseAnne in Florida

"Very happy with the plants. I have ordered plants from several places, but the shrubs I received from Proven Winners came in great condition and they have adjusted well and are growing well! They look healthy and pretty. Thank you!"  Joan in Chatsworth, GA

"Just wanted to thank you for offering the Flower Pillows this year!  I saw Laura's (Garden Answer) video about them, and ordered one to try it right away!  I'm pleased that it arrived so quickly, well packed, and ready for planting. It's so healthy it already has some blooms!  Easier than planting most individual annuals and will be a great addition and super pop of color for my patio!  I'm sure I'll be ordering more!  Proven Winners live up to the name!" Linda in Texas

"I recently received an order from you that was in perfect condition. Boxed carefully and still moist to the touch. This has been one of numerous orders and I would like to compliment your company on the health and condition of the plants, well packaged and good delivery. My pinky hydrangeas and petunias are taking off!" A faithful customer.

"The Flower Pillows are the BOMB! Please don't stop offering them! I ordered 4 of them and all are doing great, especially "Above and Beyond". I don't normally do reviews, but felt I had to let you know what a great idea this is." Lois in New York
