Play It Koi, doesn’t fool around! The order was shipped quickly, and the plants were in great shape and are doing well in my pond. I especially appreciated the follow up email from the owner, it’s hard to beat the service I received from this company - thank you, I’ll be ordering again!
I was hoping it was more sand like since my pond is a hard liner and not that large. My first plants were also in the larger strainer type baskets, which I really like a lot. I am worried about the raccoon who has been turning over my pots at times. The clay like soil with be a mess to try to repot
The soil I received was perfect for potting my pond plants. The only thing is when I opened the box the plastic bag had a hole in it and most of the soil had come out of the bag and was in the box. I suggest putting the bag of soil inside another bag before placing it in the box. Other than that everything was great.
Got it fast and it performed the way it was described. Thanks Play It Koi!
