This plant has turned out to be the crowning jewel of all the berries I purchased in 2020. Like many others who started Victory Gardens to survive the pandemic, I had to purchase plants from many nurseries because of the high demand and the subsequent shortages of organic edibles. I ordered from six different nurseries. Berries Unlimited hasn't let me down. I placed three orders last year, and everything I received came in perfect condition, in spite of the pandemic. I lost only one plant, due to a faulty site selection on my part. Jewel is the crown jewel of my orders. Beautiful pink canes that I tipped (as per instructions) immediately produced lateral canes almost ten feet long. It is the healthiest, happiest plant I have in my raspberry garden.
I will most definitely purchase from this company again. Thank you.
