Good product

Delivery was prompt, good communication from the store, and the product I received was as pretty as a bag of bark can be. The complimentary sachet of rooting powder was a nice addition.
At over $15 I that the delivery fee was a little steep though

Great service

Good communication and quick to receive quality products!
