I had been planning to buy some bee balm ever since it was recommended by Tina back when I asked for suggestions on must have plants.
The way this company prices their plants is simple, which I love! 7.95 per unit, no matter what you buy. You need a tree that they have, 7.95! Looking for a shrub, 7.95! My bee balm came in what they called "2 units" for 7.95. Now these plants were tiny and I'm sure I could have found bigger ones at a big box store earlier in the season, but I've been watching for this stuff for a few weeks and it seems to be all sold at the places I've been sale shopping. Plus, it was just as big as the tiny lavender that I ordered at one popular online nursery and I paid15 bucks for 3 tiny plants.
I ordered on Friday night and received the plants on Tuesday. That's acceptable and way way faster than any other online plant order I've placed. The plants came packaged in a plastic container and the roots were in a little dirt which was wrapped in plastic. It seemed very appropriate. The plants certainly didn't look like they were thriving but I didn't expect them too since they say they "find unsold plants" and sell them. But, if they live and my 7.95 helped "earn a disabled person a paycheck" like my little thank you email said, then its all GOOD.
That's it, there in the middle of the picture. It's tiny. Grow little Bee Balm, GROW!
