Yesterday I received an order I’d placed to Hirt Gardens, a company I found on Etsy. They have a shop in Ohio.
I was really taken by the pinkish tricolor leaves of this plant.
Plus I also ordered a Birkin Philodendron. It’s supposed to be a rare form of philodendron.
The first plant was in a four inch pot. The second was in a two and a half inch pot, if I’m not mistaken.
If you want to check out their house plants, here is their actual website.
I was impressed with how they shipped the plants. There were many positive reviews (and I always pay attention to the reviews before I order from a new shop).
Here’s what they should look like when they’re a bit bigger:
They came in a box with a warming packet taped to the bottom so the plants would not get cold while being shipped. I had never seen that before. But then I’d never ordered house plants online before.
They surrounded the plant’s soil with masking tape to keep the soil in place.
Here’s something from their About Page…
Hirt’s Gardens is one of Ohio’s oldest horticultural establishments. We specialize in hard-to-find perennials, unusual and exotic house plants, and seeds and bulbs from around the world.
The company was established in 1915 by Samuel Hirt. So it’s been around a long time.
