My citrus trees came in today and i am actually impressed.
They weren't in the ridiculous plastic bag that i remember Henry Field's used to ship things in... they were in a real cardboard box packed with inner sleeves and air pillows.
Last is the Venous Orange. Leaves are a bit pale and rolled, but they are soft leaves, i think its just how they grow in.
No sign of scale, spider mite, whitefly or anything else. I can see roots in the soil that was loosened in shipping, but that means these are well rooted plants and not recently propagated cuttings just barely started.
So i am relieved and pleased. For about $10 each, shipping included, i got some nice plants from a company with a poor reputation. I hope this is a sign of a company on the move upward.
I hope my little Fig plant arrives looking as well as these do. It is scheduled for shipment around the first week of May.
Another gorgeous weather day today. A bit before noon and its almost 65 degrees and the sun is shining.
Later on i plan to take a few more reference pictures of the seedlings in the mini greenhouses. Things are popping up all over in there!
