|Just wanted to say that the plants offered from Flowers By The Sea are "top shelf" material.
As a former professional Grower of over 30 years, I can attest to their quality.
Not only quality but the size of their 3.5 inch plants that they ship simply amazes me.
I have ordered from several websites over the years... and I must say, that FBTS offers the largest sized plants that I have ever received.

|We ordered 15 plants. All arrived in excellent condition. If our local nurseries offered these plants, which they don't, 14 of the 15 would have already been in 2-gallon or larger containers and priced considerably higher. These are by far the best-grown, healthiest, and largest Salvias we've ever received in a shipment, from anyone.|

|The Salvia candelabrum & deserta, & Sideritis oroteneriffae that I received a the end of August, in great shape, are doing nicely in the ground here in San Jose, CA. Also, I have a Salvia x 'John Whittlesey' growing and blooming it heart out for bit over 3 years, and it's a great low water plant too.

|From Coast to Coast in 3 days!
So happily excited I was to receive my order Wed. Oct. 23, Charleston, SC.
I placed my order on 10/19 & was notified of tracking # as expected but sometimes don't get. I knew UPS would have it here, SC by Thursday but it arrived early by a day. Yippy. The pkg. packing was more than expected! Way above good shipping standards. Plants arrived in beautiful condition. No torn leaves, broken branches or hanging by the roots. Will definitely be order more! as well as telling friends. Finally a Super grower & Shipper!

|I received my first order of salvias from FBTS this year. The quality of their plants far exceeds that of any other mail order source that I have used......and believe me, I do a ton of plants by mail order!!!!
Packing was excellent and not as annoying as some places that use multiple rubber bands to hold things together!!! FBTS will be my first place to search for salvias now!

|I was feeling glum today, and then UPS delivered my new plants from FBTS (doing a nice job of placing the box right side up). I opened it immediately to discover that all the plants were moist, green and healthy. I fell in love with the sweet fragrances of Salvia lyciodes x greggii 'Ultra Violet' and Salvia lyciodes x greggii 'Ultra Violet' as well as the fascinating variety of leaves among the different sages. Made me smile.|

|My Salvias arrived fresh and lovely. I have been luxuriating in their fragrance this past week. "Doris," the name I've given my Salvia dorisiana is so nicely vertical. She looks particularly regal among my houseplants and smells like she is wearing a bit of fruity perfume. Thanks for the great plants and shipping.|

|My third shipment of flowers arrived today with temperatures reaching 100 this afternoon. Kermit said they would be safe to ship despite the weather and they arrived in perfect condition. Many were blooming or in bud and all were very healthy and full. When I receive flowers from Flowers by the Sea, I know that I will be receiving the very best. Thank you for growing fantastic salvias.|

|Truly one of the most rewarding nursery orders I have placed. When the plants arrived, they looked like they had been lovingly cared for, not just watered.
The two plants I ordered are doing well. The Heatwave Glimmer is my favorite. What an exceptionally beautiful plant. And a fast grower. I placed in a container and it filled out in a couple of weeks. The petals are like velvet and the stem and foliage colors are very deep, rich colors. Absolutely beautiful!

|Clearly I am addicted to Flowers by the Sea! I think I've just about ordered at least one of everything! The plants are all super healthy, and arrive in great shape owing to the (patented?) packing method. The hummingbirds, bees and butterflies are in 7th heaven. I HIGHLY recommend FBTS for all the plants they offer, not just the salvias. I got some terrestrial orchids that are doing great, and they have other unusual plants as well. Order with confidence - you will be delighted.|
