    Ordered through eBay in August and received as promised in November. Never seen roots like these. Excellent condition, delivered as offered. In water that same day, in the ground the next. I have had a better price but that was for a greater quantity and I collected. Those did not compare in quality to these and they all grew well so I've no issues with this purchase. Consequently I ordered more. No connection to Beechwood Nurseries and had never heard of them till August. Highly recommend.
