  • Romence Gardens Flower order

    Posted by Gillis Lawanda on Apr 28th 2022

    I ordered several plants from Romence gardens. All of my plants were received in great condition. I ordered before the shipping date for my zone so all of my plants were young. They have been in the ground for about a week. The Aquilegia and the Gaillordia are already budding. The Kniphofia Puromania (Red Hot Poker) isn’t budding yet but looks healthy. One of my Russian Sage plants is not looking like I want it to but the other 3 look great. I might add that I tried some Russian Sage from a local nursery last year and it didn’t make it. I planted in a different location this year and will see what happens. I don’t know if the sage doesn’t like our soil or if I’m not giving it the kind of love it wants. Plants arrived healthy so any problems are in this end. I will definitely be ordering from Romence Gardens in the future.
