I just ordered two more salvias. The two I planted recently looked perfect and were in bloom in less than a week! Thank you for great plants and great shipping. You couldn’t tell they had just been planted two days before. Very happy!

I purchased three Cool Fandango Salvias this spring and they are beautiful. Full of lovely blooms that are visited frequently by the hummingbirds. I've purchased many flowers the last few years from Flowers By The Sea and they always arrive healthy and perfectly packed. I know that I can always trust the Carters to provide the very best plants.

hi,
Thanks for these gardening tips. These tips are really very helpful to us as well as experienced.

My package arrived in great shape. The plants were all strong and healthy and the packaging protecting them completely. They are freshly in the ground and are responding well. Customer service was immensely helpful when I wanted to add plants to the order. Considering all that, and with the temptation of so many Salvias to choose from, I plan to do a lot of business with FBTS.

Just received a box from FBTS with 7 plants inside. Well wrapped inside box with insulation.
Arrived safely in great condition by UPS.

Every plant is super healthy, about 6 to 8" tall above soil level with multiple branches and not a broken or wilted one, and the soil is still moist to the touch.

Very pleased.

I want to compliment you on the plants I received in my May order. When I first ordered these plants I was a little taken aback by the cost of delivery, however, after seeing what the plants looked like when they arrived I have no complaints. I ordered 6 plants and all arrived in extremely healthy condition. Three of the six are blooming at this time. Thank you. Mary E Dean

My plants arrived yesterday and they are perfect. It's been quite depressing around here lately due to the Covdid-19 outbreak and my state being on lock down, but when I received the shipment and unwrapped the plants I felt a burst of pure JOY! I’m so looking forward to planting them in my garden and watching them grow. My hummers are going to be over the moon this summer with all the delicious treats you’ve provided. Thank you!!

I was very wary of ordering plants from FBTS - I live in the Chihuahuan desert of southern New Mexico! But I took a chance and ordered 3 Ultra Violet Sages. The first surprise was how healthy the plants were upon arrival. Super packing was fantastic and goof-proof. I planted them in a sunny, hot area in my torrid garden. I built little shades for them out of burlap and watered twice a week or daily when temps reached over 99 degrees. My soil in that particular area is sandy with small gravels mixed with compost. Those little plants absolutely WANTED to grow! They tripled in size and I was truly amazed. This February, 2020, they were sprouting and now, March 21st, they are vigorous and showing buds! Just beautiful, vigorous plants. I've ordered more for this year with full confidence that FBTS only ships the very best plants! Thank you FBTS for giving us such beauty and enjoyment especially during these challenging and difficult times. I always loved gardening, but now, my garden has become my refuge, my solace and my safe place.

Pure Joy!!! I've enjoyed watching this burgundy salvia develop across the summer-- continuously getting taller and bushier. Now that August has arrived, there are dozens of blooms springing forth from the plant, which has spread nearly 4 feet and is 3 feet tall. Day by day the exact colors are emerging, as the bloom stocks develop and begin to bloom completely. Amazing tones of purple, black, red and burgundy.

This is a fabulous plant for hummingbirds. They won't eat anything else! It has a very long blooming season!

This was my first order with Flowers By The Sea. I purchased two of the Salvia vitiifolia plants. Even though it took a while for the plants to be ready for shipment, it was well worth the wait. My first move was to transplant them into larger pots until I can make up my mind where I want them in the yard. We previously purchased one these beautiful plants from a local nursery and it lasted for several years. But it was lost during a small construction project. As for these new plants from Flowers by the Sea, both are doing well. I'll transplant them again during our mild winter here in Mountain View, CA.

Two months later, two Elk Giant Orange, each in a contemporary (self-watering) white container on a windswept balcony facing north with a few hours of morning sun at best, are resplendent show stoppers with all 30" of them covered in brilliant orange-red flowers. Not sure you could ask more of a plant. They provide all the decoration needed for one end of the living room.

All I can say about this one is Great!! Great! Great!! This is a must have every spring for my garden. Thanks for growing it...
Randy Collins who rated us 5 / 5 on Aug 19, 2019

Salvia Chilicombe arrived in great shape and is doing fine in my garden. I don't expect much bloom this first season but will surely expect great things next year. Thanks
for growing such wonderful plants.
Randy Collins who rated us 5 / 5 on Aug 19, 2019

The plants arrived beautifully packed, in lovely condition, and I followed the very clear instructions for unpacking, getting them accustomed to the growing conditions here, hardening them off and planting them in my garden. They are doing beautifully and I love the complete descriptions of how to care for them. They are like beautiful children that I can hardly wait to see grow up and bloom. So glad I have them.

Can't say enough about FBTS. What a great resource. I have a salvia/cuphea garden for birds and bees in my front yard and have landscaped the back yard with many companion plants all from FBTS. All plants arrived healthy and have thrived with planting. You just can't get this variety anywhere else, nor the great customer service re planting and caring for the plants after arrival. Can't thank you enough. I'll be back for more!
Shotsy Faust who rated us 10 / 5 on Oct 27, 2017

I can't say yet how the plants will fare as I just received them, most are in the ground with three having been re-potted to keep thru the winter in the garden shed for planting next spring - but I can say these are by far the BEST quality plants I have ever received via mail order, and in fact the quality is better than some i've bought locally! I've ordered a lot of plants online over the years and have never had any to arrive in such good condition as the ones I've bought from FBTS. Will definitely be buying more!

I find salvias so addictive, and finding this site was a great thing for me! There are so many different kinds so you can have a wide variety of looks and colors, while still providing nectar for the pollinators. My garden is a registered Monarch Watch site so I have to be careful that I'm providing the right plants for the pollinators to thrive. With FBTS's salvia categories this could not be easier. I love it. All of my plants have arrived in great condition, however it is still hot here (Texas) and some of them didn't make it because I didn't transfer them quickly enough. I just placed an order a couple of days ago to replace the ones I lost. Great company, obviously cares about the environment and spreading the beauty of the salvia species.

Have been ordering plants for 3 years and have never received an improperly packaged plant or had a plant die. Love their instructions and information about each plant. Have had to call on two occasions and talked to a real person who answered my questions. Love their website.

the recent set of 5 flowers are doing well. It is cool in the desert ... under 90. flowers purchased previously did not like temps above 90. As soon as it cooled off .... they started blooming again.

Plants arrived promptly when they were expected. They were large healthy plants. I was very happy with my order! Thanks.

Purchased plants as part of \"grew too much\" sale; plants arrived in good condition, and are adjusting well to the new home.
