I love flower gardens, always have. It was no surprise that I loved all the flowers in our backyard when we purchased our home. However, it lacked color. The previous owner had well over 30 pink rose bushes planted along the back of the house and up both sides of the property. There were other flowers planted too, but the rose bushes were overgrown and very old and we needed to add more color, so when I was contacted by Brighter Blooms Nursery to do a review of their products, I was all for it!

My Take On It
The first thing I love about their site is that you can search for the plant(s) you want right from their main page by using a neat little search feature that you put in your zone, category, type, and sun and it will bring up all the plants that fit those selections. They have a huge selection of plants to choose from and some pretty quick delivery! I also love that they offer a 1-year warranty.
What’s the difference from Brighter Blooms Nursery and other online nurseries? Well, the one thing, and most important thing, that is different is that the plants you get from Brighter Blooms Nursery and live plants. They aren’t just roots to plant in the ground and you hope that they come up the following year. When I received the Knockout Rose and the Rose Tree I received for review, they were still planted in the pots just like they would be if you purchased them from your local nursery. The last time I purchased plants from an online nursery, they sent me just the dried up roots of the plants and out of all the ones I purchased only a couple actually grew.
The plants were nicely boxed and labeled “Live Plant” so that the carrier knew not to tip the boxes and that they were fragile. When they arrived, I immediately took them out of the boxes and placed them outside to make sure that they would get the sun, air, and water needed until I could get them planted. Due to our busy schedules here with the baby in the hospital, I wasn’t able to get them planted right away, but as soon as I got them planted and gave them water, they were good to go.
I received the plants on July 27th and as I mentioned, I didn’t them planted for about a week or so. After I got them planted I had forgotten to take a picture right away, so the pictures I took are from August 13th. As you can see the Knockout Rose has already bloomed since planting and the Rose Tree is doing great!
The prices for the plants aren’t that bad, comparable to that of any online and local nursery and if you spend over $99 you get a 20% discount!
