Please consider these terms before ordering live plants:
Most plants will be 3”-7” in height. Plants will ship as available after the first of March to the end of
May. We will try to ship orders to southern zones first. No guaranteed exact delivery dates. Plants may
arrive too early and have to be kept inside until the weather warms. Plants may arrive late, as well.
Due to the sensitive nature of small plants, there is the possibility of a crop failure. If such a situation
occurs, we will do our best to issue you a refund in a timely manner. Last minute losses can occur at
any point in our shipping timeline, and we may have to issue a refund even late in the season. No

orders shipped outside of the USA. No Extra shipping costs; you just pay our regular $3.50. (PRE-ORDER PLANTS WILL SHIP AFTER March 1, 2018)

What are the pros? Super easy and tasty

Review:

Received my two small plants last Spring. One little branch broke off of one, so put it in soil when I transplanted them into garden. Ignored it, and later realized I had three plants. This is super easy to grow. I started numerous cuttings, giving away several plants, while still having 8 nice-sized plants in my front landscape beds, 4 larger full-sized plants in large pots, a few more in small pots, & 2 vases of cuttings rooting inside - all from my initial purchase of the two plants! Providing shade from the hot Texas afternoon sun and giving ample water did greatly aid the plants. Even growing these in nearly full shade didn't faze these guys at all. The taste is a bit different from what I was used to in greens, but the flavor quickly grew on me. It became a habit to eat 5-10 growing tips most days while I was out watering and doing garden chores. I brought most plants inside before 1st frost to over-winter, & I'm now ready to put them out after last frost next month.

What are the pros? THRIVED in Texas heat

What are the cons? No dislikes whatsoever

Review:

I grew these in rectangular pots by our back door so they would be easy to get to when making our green smoothie drinks and salads. Our son's puppy, who didn't know boundaries very well, trampled them down in the planters and these plants STILL grew and thrived and gave SUCH a beautiful and bountiful produce! It thrived on the hot side of the house. Made delicious green smoothie drinks (coupled with apple or blackberries, cucumber, ginger & lemon) for a nutritious snack; and also goes nicely in salads. I'm ordering them every year, now!

What are the pros? Excellent healthy plants

What are the cons? we love this plant

Review:

We bought a pair of these plants two years ago. One is planted in a large pot - and gets moved outdoors during the summer months - and the other is permanently planted in a raised bed inside our heated greenhouse - zone 5 US. The plants are extremely productive and delicious. We get enough greens for two people and have plenty left over for a family up the road. The taste is delicious. We've eaten Longevity Spinach raw and cooked in various ways and it never disappoints. We highly recommend this plant to everyone.

Review:

I highly recommend this! It grows especially well in our South Florida heat through the summers, and is a great perennial that tolerates full summer sun, or full shade, poor soil, drought, pest resistant and never had a problem with powder mildew. Yes, it tolerates drought and poor soil, but won't thrive in those conditions. No need for root hormones for cuttings. It roots very easily, although may rot if soil is too wet. I started with two small plants from BCHS and now have more than I need and use as a thick ground cover. Now as far as nutrition, just try looking up the health benefits and you'll be amazed. I use a preventative approach to cancer as someone with it in my family history. So I love the anti-cancer properties. The leaves are succulent and great to use in any sandwich in place of lettuce, and great in green smoothies. I've given quite a few these plants away.

Review:

This plant thrives in my Florida garden. It grows rapidly and produces an abundance of greens. It is also easy to start new plants from cuttings, so it is a perfect plant to share with friends and neighbors. I wouldn't want to be without it!
