By plantmanager on May 19, 2018 2:06 PM, concerning Kitazawa Seed Company:

I recently learned about Kitazawa Seed Co here on the NGA. I ordered seeds of a variety of veggies, and they arrived in my mailbox 2 days later! They also included their catalog which is a very interesting read. I love that they also include recipes for many of the seeds they sell. They've been at this for 101 years, so you know they are a great company! I'll definitely be a return customer.

By TexasPlumeria87 on May 17, 2018 8:55 PM, concerning Puckett's:

Has a good selection of Texas native plants as well as plants adapted to hot, dry climates. There's also a good selection of herbs, annuals, and perennials. There's also lots of succulents and neat yard art.

By DLBee on May 16, 2018 7:14 AM, concerning Shady Rest Gardens :

Received my first order from Shady Rest Gardens and was very impressed with the size and quantity of the fans. And the bonus was large and one I would have picked myself. Communication was also prompt and informative.

Altogether, an overall good experience.

Great varieties, informative website, quick shipping and excellent product. Would not hesitate to recommend TGS to fellow gardeners!

By GenXNEGeorgia on May 15, 2018 4:20 PM, concerning Sand Hill Preservation Center:

Their order processing time was a bit slower than other seed companies but they warn you ahead of time that it is a small business with few employees.

The seeds, on the other hand, are awesome! I ordered a bunch of tomato plants, some basil, peppers and squash. Everything germinated and the plants are doing well! I would not hesitate recommending them to fellow gardeners!

Excellent company with a wide selection of plants. Easy to navigate web site. Extraordinary packing, timely, helpful (great customer service)!

By GenXNEGeorgia on May 13, 2018 6:52 PM, concerning TomatoFest:

I bought half of my heirloom seeds from TomatoFest and they all germinated with no issue. I plan to order from them again.

I ordered five packets of seeds and they sent two bonus packets. One was a heat-tolerant variety (which I didn't know existed!), Porter. Learning more about heat resistant varieties should help me have a better yield!

By GenXNEGeorgia on May 13, 2018 6:48 PM, concerning Southern Exposure Seed Exchange:

Seeds arrived promptly and all successfully germinated. I am very happy with the customer service and their seeds. Their website is informative!

By plantmanager on May 13, 2018 6:18 PM, concerning Perfect Plants:

I ordered 2 Agapanthus plants recently. They came yesterday. They were absolutely beautiful large plants in the pot they were grown in. The soil was held in by paper and the pot was bagged in plastic and zip tied. Not a leaf was damaged. This was the nicest packing I've ever seen and the plants came across the country in perfect shape. I got them planted today and can't wait to see them bloom. I'll definitely be ordering again. The plants were shipped very quickly, too. Perfect Plants has my highest recommendation!

By urania1 on May 13, 2018 11:40 AM, concerning Stout Iris & Daylily Gardens at Dancingtree:

Wow. I love the iris this company offers. I ordered from them for the first time last summer. This spring all of the iris I ordered from them bloomed. They also send fabulous bonus irises, not the less attractive iris that some companies send.

By SpringGreenThumb on May 12, 2018 8:15 AM, concerning Deerbusters Deer Fence (Deerbusters.com):

I live in a steep canyon next to a creek on the edge of wild forest with a beautiful view and waterfalls. For years I've struggled with deer and other invading wild life such as the occasional coyotes and lions. Additionally, hikers will pick the fruit off my trees. I've tried everything from repellent to motion sensor sprinklers. There were times I was in tears at the damage that was done. I didn't want to put up a solid barrier because it would ruin the beautiful view, make my gardens ugly, and I could not afford to fence off 3 wild acres of steep, undeveloped, rocky terrain with cliffs and streams. What's the point of a garden if you can't see it?

I won a roll of Deer Busters invisible fencing in the Garden.org raffle. Here is a picture of it installed around the exterior of my garden. Do you see that hideous 8-foot deer barrier? Neither can I!!! 💕💕

This picture is taken from 30 feet away. It works perfectly. Not one plant has been nibbled or trampled since the fencing was erected, plus I will get to eat my own peaches this year.

I need about 300 more feet for the other side of the creek, which I will order from Deer Busters. This is the BEST product I have tried that doesn't make my yard ugly.

If you are suffering, here is your answer. The anxiety and tears have stopped. I have felt nothing but joy and safety every time I look at it. I recommend this awesome product a thousand times over.


Here is a picture of the fence from 10 feet away. It's super strong.

God bless whoever invented this product. 💕💕

By Txtea on May 6, 2018 8:11 PM, concerning Almost Eden:

I got my first ever order from Almost Eden about a month ago. I give them a very high grade on the plants they sent. Size was much larger than I expected. There were a couple mislabeled, but I grow others of the same item and there was no problem with that. Plants were well packaged and shipping was very fast. I give them an A+ for wonderful service and plants.

By janinilulu on May 4, 2018 4:54 PM, concerning Perfect Plants:

I received my 3 'Sunny Knock Out' Roses today (NARR prize winner!) and couldn't be more pleased with them.They are quality plants that were perfectly packed and arrived in excellent condition. I chose them not only because yellow is my favorite color, but also because they were touted as being the only scented Knock Out. There are flowers on them now and we could smell them even before the box was completely opened; just incredible! I love them.
PS I'd also like to mention how very nice it was to "speak" with my Perfect Plants contact, Jaime. Excellent experience.

By Australis on Apr 29, 2018 4:29 AM, concerning Springfield Orchids:

Nado Lenkic is the owner and operator of Springfield Orchids. I've dealt with him several times and purchased a number of Cymbidiums from him - he's good to deal with and his pricing is fair. He has a range of Cymbidiums that are otherwise difficult to find in Australia.

By SnowCronan on Apr 26, 2018 10:01 PM, concerning BBBseed.com:

BBBseed is a family owned company that started in 1985. They offer many heirloom veggie and flower seeds and they arrived perfect. I have them started in the greenhouse and they grew just fine. Plenty of seeds for the money, and during the end of the year they usually mark them down, so getting your hands on some heirloom seeds is easy enough to do. Never had an issue with their seeds.

By lauribob on Apr 26, 2018 9:30 AM, concerning Dixondale Farms:

I've been buying my onion starts from Dixondale Farms for many years. The size of the starts varies from year to year, presumably due to growing conditions at the farm. Nevertheless, they are always healthy and arrive in great shape. I like that you can specify when you want them to arrive at your house and they always arrive very close to that day. Except for last year, when I apparently forgot to enter that information when I placed my order. Much to my dismay, the onions shipped in mid February or something. We were traveling at the time so they sat at the post office for about 6 weeks. No worries - they looked great when we finally picked them up and we had a bumper crop of onions that year.

By pod on Apr 26, 2018 6:28 AM, concerning Bromeliad.com:

This online site offers a nice selection of bromeliads. It is also an easy to navigate site.

I turned in an order on one of my "wish list" bromeliads and added another "impulse" bromeliad purchase.

The shipment was received quickly, well packed with no damage to the plants.

The plants were nice sized and healthy. I would purchase from http://www.bromeliad.com/ again (and again).

By springcolor on Apr 22, 2018 10:11 AM, concerning Jordan Nursery:

My purchase, went a bit overboard but could not resist the beautiful plants. So many varieties it will make you want to try them all.

By NakedChickenFarm on Apr 19, 2018 11:04 PM, concerning Filaree Garlic Farm:

My first attempt at garlic was a failure partly due to buying at a big box store. No telling what it was. I read the book Growing Great Garlic and ordered from Filaree. Have a beautiful bed of burgundy and silver white. Ordered a little more than I needed and have been using the leftovers in my kitchen while waiting for my own!

By Lalambchop1 on Apr 19, 2018 6:47 PM, concerning Perennial Obsessions:

Last fall I was blessed to win plants from Perennial Obsessions in a NARR. I'm new to the land of succulents and took a long time to make up my mind as to what I wanted and asked a lot of questions. The lady from PO could not have been more helpful. When the plants came they were very carefully packed and labeled. She even put an extra one in there "because it was so cute". LOL

Now it's April and I'm finally getting around to really planting them. The poor plants spent the winter on an umbrella table on my deck just poked into a couple of pots and some not even taken out of their wrappings. Today was the day I finally got to plant them and it was so much fun. No winter kill and they looked as good as the day they came.

This is an A+ company.
