Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Sequim, WA United States  
I love them.  Period.  I have been very successful growing them for many years.   Getting a new one is a treat.   arrived in perfect condition due to marvelous packing.
 The podcasts are wonderful,  look forward to seeing them.   You both seem like old friends now.   And the plants reflect your passion and high standards.  
I have recommended SN many times to folks interested in my plants.
