Thuja Green Giants - Which of these two companies?
As Many of you know, I posted another thread earlier this year about purchasing more GG's because mine were getting brown because of the ice storm. I replanted and we had heavy wind storms that pretty much took everyone out of the ground. So I've decided to go ahead and take the plunge and get some 1 gallon GG's. (Sorry, I can't get the search function to work, so I wasn't able to post in my original thread)
The ones at AnythingGreen are 2 feet tall shipped in 1 gal containers for $8.99 + Shipping
The ones at greatgardenplants are 3 feet tall shipped in 1 gal containers for 16.95 w/Free Shipping minus my 10% off.
I need a total of 20, the final price of both places:
The ones at AnythingGreen would cost $212
The ones at Great Garden Plants would cost $300
I think that I would feel more comfortable ordering from GGP.com only because they have the video so you can actually see how full the plants are and a 1 year guarantee to which they stand behind after reading reviews. AG don't really have any good pictures.
I actually asked GGP.com if they could price match and they said which is strange: "Thank you so much for contacting us! Unfortunately, the plants from AG.com are not the same as ours. The Thuja Green Giants in the 1 gallon pot that we carry grow to approximately 50' x 10' and the ones on AG.com only get to be about 25' tall. It is comparing an apple to an orange."
I'm not sure why AG.com lists it as only being 25' tall, but I thought they all are the same?
These are the only two places that I found that are somewhat reputable. Even the last GG order I placed with the botany shop looked a little sad and they have been getting pretty bad reviews lately. I definitely want to order from a good company that truly sell real good Thuja Green Giants. I don't want to order from someone selling cuttings they grew in their backyard.
