Due to colder then normal night time temperatures over the last two months, our Green Giants were not able to have their first growing spurt of the season. We wanted to let you know that the plants are in great shape and can be planted. They are just not the height that we normally offer. If you decide not to have your order shipped at this time you can reserve the larger plants after their growth sprurt, for this coming fall. We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
