Reviewed By: Jennifer (Greensburg, Kentucky)
I ordered these from another company, and only one survived. The other, I accidentally took out while weeding because it was so small and puny(oops!). So I tried from Gurneys this year, thinking that they would replace it if it didn't make it through the hot weather this year. However, they didn't have to! They arrived full of life, so green and healthy! I transplanted them into my small garden outside to get them started. Once, they got yellow and black spots on them and I thought they would die, but I sprayed them with Natria in case of disease or pests, and gave them a good dose of Liquid Organic Miracle Grow Fertilizer and now the leaves are a very deep green color and the plants are covered with them! I'm very excited to see how big the bush gets! The bush hasn't grown any new stems, but it is about a 1-1.5ft. ball!
