    My order arrived at the very week I requested for a Spring planting. All bare roots were in great shape. No obstacles here. Derek is working hard to please.

    I am very happy with this plant! It arrived much larger than similarly priced blackberry plants I have purchased over the Internet from other nurseries! It leafed out nicely, is growing vigorously and is also already flowering profusely! It also arrived pest and disease free which has not always been the case when I have purchased from other nurseries.
