Unfortunately, I cannot report a good experience with Eagle Farms. In May of 2009, I bought two ""sky pencil holly"" shrubs and planted them in my front yard. I've planted dozens of things over the years, so am not inexperienced. When I made the purchase, I asked if they needed any special treatment, care or planting. According to them, none was necessary. By September, one of the hollies was completely dead and the second was showing signs of decline, despite faithful watering. By March of 2010, the second one was also dead.
