  • Beautiful Healthy Plants

    Posted by Becky Kelly on May 17th 2021

    I can’t say enough good things about ALL the plants I have received from Romence Gardens. Speaking specifically of the Calamagrostis “Lightning Strike”, they arrived beautiful, healthy and well packaged. They are planted and thriving. I recently retired and live in a rural area, not close to “town”, garden center, etc. online shopping for plants has been exciting and eye opening. I have ordered plants from several vendors and Romence BY FAR provides the best plants and excellent service and communication. There is no question that they will be my “go to” online nursery from now on.
