  2. Lovely Plant Arrives in Good Time 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Apr 22nd 2019

    I recently ordered a Mother-in-law's tongue as a congratulatory gift for someone who had mentioned a liking for this plant.

    It was delivered fairly soon after the order. I saw it on Facetime with the recipient and, though I had ordered the smaller version, I was surprised at the size of it. Its recipient was very pleased and I am pleased both with the quality, the ease of ordering, and the personal attention I received during this process.

    My recipient was a little displeased that the plant had to be delivered during work hours due to the shorter duration of delivery hours. Other than that, a good experience, exactly as hoped.
