"Facebook Likes" & Customer Reviews
Have you ever been in a Garden Center or even on-line and said to yourself "so many plants to choose from how I am ever going to decide?" We have tried to supply all the information you need to make your decision simple, but sometimes the best information comes from other gardeners. We have heard it time and time again, "your customer reviews helped me decide which plants were right for me."
If you have an experience you are willing to share about one or more of the plants we offer, please post a review on that plant. It doesn't matter if you have received it from us or not. As long as you purchased a quality plant to start with, your review maybe beneficial in other gardeners buying decisions.
New for 2011 we have added the Facebook "Like" button to each plant we carry. This not only informs us what plants you like, but will also share your favorites with your friends.
Every customer review posted on our site over the next week will be entered into a drawing for a $25 Garden Crossings Gift Certificate. One winner will be chosen at random. The more reviews you write the better your chances. Thanks for sharing!
