Has anyone ordered from this place? I emailed with some questions and didn't get a very good response. But the plants look nice... http://mountaincrestgardens.com/

Here you go Terri. Hope this helps. valleylynn
Mountaincrest Gardens http://mountaincrestgardens.com/ I got my first order from them last year in a co-op here in Cubits.org (http://cubits.org/notfortheserious/).
It is the first time I have received plants in a plug form. Every plant took off growing and is flourishing this spring, almost a year later. I have not ordered from them directly.

I have ordered from them and they were ok. NHN was better, more rosettes. I have many of the cultivars on MG site and would be happy to trade.

I have some wonderful plants (Sedum and Semps) I got from them last year in a co-op here in Cubits. They were just tiny little plugs when they got here, but boy did they take off growing. I am very happy with all the sedum and semp I received from them.

My one complaint was receiving a plant tagged as Rosularia rechingeri (ordered 5 of them). It was not even close to being that plant. When I contacted them about it and sent links to photos of rechingeri they pulled that listing and never did let me know what it was I was sent. No replacements, no refund. : (

The plants sent have done beautifully, just don't know what it is?

NOID plant from MG.

Got my order in from Mountain Crest Gardens today. I was really surprised. I was expecting a single plug of each plant, but instead, they sent 2. They also sent a bonus plug. Wonderful surprise. Only 2 of them were smaller than I expected.

Hurray! Hurray! Dahtzu, how exciting. Lovey dubby
I look forward to many more photos of your great semps as they mature and go through all their color changes.
Hope you will also share the photos on the Sempervivum Database. http://cubits.org/sedumandsempervivum/db/sedumandsempervivum...
