I have been ordering from smoleys for years. Always a good experience. Receive bonus high quality cuttings with every order. Very helpful over the phone and great plants.

Placed my first order with Sutton's this year, got my order and very happy with their beautiful rhizomes, generous bonuses and great customer service.
Will definitely order again next year.

By RobinSeeds on Aug 6, 2018 10:16 AM, concerning May's Acres Daylilies:

I was looking for a very hard to find Daylily and Eléna at May's Acres Daylilies had two small fans. I ordered two other hard-to-find cultivars and she shipped me her two small fans free. My Daylilies were dug, packaged very well and sent to me immediately. All were very healthy and the other two cultivars had a very generous and clean root system. I highly recommend this grower/Seller for anyone appreciating quality.

By MaryJackson135 on Jul 31, 2018 12:43 AM, concerning Wellspring Gardens:

All of my plants arrived fast and in GREAT shape--all fresh and GREAT looking. The box they were shipped in was well marked, which end up, fragile, live plants, etc. Though the box DID appear to have been pinched and crushed (like it was caught on one corner by something during transport) the plants inside were untouched by that due to the ample use of bubble wrap! The soil in each pot was completely contained/undisturbed as well XD
I was so impressed with the FIRST order that I decided to order MORE XD Wellspring Gardens is a KEEPER for sure XD

By cindshoaf on Jul 30, 2018 5:36 PM, concerning Seeds for Thee :

I received my 1st order from Seeds For Thee and wow am I am impressed! The shipping was super fast. The order was packaged safely and attractively, the seeds were clearly labeled, and included growing instructions. Some vegetable ones even had recipes. I love the way it all had a friendly "down home" feel to it. You can tell they care about saving and sharing seeds. It looked as if someone put a lot of time and effort into the presentation. The low prices and many bonus seeds made it even more impressive. I highly recommend seedsforthee.com for heirloom seeds, as well as an excellent experience that is refreshingly unlike those big seed companies.

By mystlw on Jul 20, 2018 5:32 PM, concerning Rainbow Acres:

I wish I had found Rainbow Acres sooner! By the time I ordered, I could only purchase two daylilies, as the others I wanted were sold out. Kelly was a pleasure to deal with, the plants arrived large and healthy, with great roots, and I received an awesome, fairly pricey bonus daylily. I will definitely order earlier next season, and I highly recommend it.

By mystlw on Jul 16, 2018 3:21 PM, concerning Park Lane Daylilies:

I'm so glad that I ordered from Park Lane, and will continue to order in the future! All of my plants were huge and healthy, with great root systems, and all but one of them had extra fans; one of my "double fans" was a six-fan clump!
Kathleen was a pleasure to deal with, and I'm thrilled with this purchase.

By csandt on Jul 16, 2018 12:16 PM, concerning Smokey's Daylily Gardens:

I placed my first order with Smokey's Daylily Gardens in 2017 for late summer delivery of three cultivars: Renaissance Fair, Sanctuary, and Troubled Sleep. Prices were good, and all have grown and bloomed very robustly in their first summer in my garden. I am very pleased with all of the plants I received from Smokey's.

By scvirginia on Jul 14, 2018 9:08 AM, concerning Woodlanders Inc.:

I received several plants from Woodlanders last year- all in good health and doing well here.

I did receive a mislabeled plant, and when I asked about it, they agreed that it was a mistake, and offered a refund. I asked for a credit instead, and ordered more from their cool selection of plants. These are also doing well.

Nice selection, healthy plants, secure shipping practices, and very good customer service. I'll order from them again; they offer some plants I haven't seen offered elsewhere.

I won 1st prize in a recent NARR and chose the package of three cobrahead tools.
Received them fairly expediently. We put them to use immediately and are so impressed with the results, rips those 'weedies' right out of their spot, roots and all. Superior garden tool.

By christinereid54 on Jul 11, 2018 7:50 AM, concerning Herbs for Texas:

If you love herb gardening and you live in Texas, you would do well to get this book. It has detailed growing information about all the herbs that thrive in the Lone Star state. If it doesn't belong in a Texas garden, Mr. Garrett, an organic grower, will tell you so. It also has photographs of each herb and, along with growing requirements, it also lists common landscape, culinary and medical uses, where applicable. This book has the tips that will help you succeed!

By cdlong on Jul 9, 2018 4:19 AM, concerning Victory Seed Company:

We've been gardeners for about 8 years. Mostly seeds and plants from the big seed companies. Garden hasn't really been what we were hoping for. This year we purchased Victory seeds. What a difference in the garden. I planted 2 weeks later than usual, but everything just sprang up over night. Our sweet corn was 5 feet tall by the 4th of July. Our garden will be a "Victory" garden from now on.

By Lalambchop1 on Jul 8, 2018 4:22 PM, concerning Mountain Crest Gardens:

I won a gift certificate from MCG through the NARR and it was one of the best wins ever. They have very helpful employees. We are building a gnome village and I was able to get lots of awesome accessories for it, plus Emily was right on with her suggestions about the sedums that would be good to grow with it.

Highly recommend. I'll be back when I need more succulents.

By christinereid54 on Jun 29, 2018 2:14 PM, concerning Texas bug book:

While the title may seem like this is just for people in Texas, this book would likely be helpful to any gardener. It has page after page of specific information about the insects that all gardeners face every season. It lists their names, their adult and larval size, a description, photographs, habitat, feeding habits and economic impact. Best of all, it describes natural and organic controls, if they're even needed--because guess what-- most insects are beneficial! A great book for all of us to study so that we know which insects to fight and which ones to respect.

By christinereid54 on Jun 29, 2018 2:00 PM, concerning Texas organic vegetable gardening:

This book is a must-have for organic Texas gardeners. It has detailed entries for the fruits and vegetables that can grow in Texas and will give specific tips on how to increase your harvest, along with best varieties to grow, etc. Wouldn't garden without it!

By christinereid54 on Jun 29, 2018 1:44 PM, concerning High Mowing Organic Seeds:

Excellent company, from their seeds to their customer service. The seeds are organic and have always done well for me. I've been ordering from them for almost ten years and have never been disappointed. Their website is full of gardening information--they really want you to succeed in the garden!

By christinereid54 on Jun 28, 2018 9:12 PM, concerning Brent and Becky's:

This company really knows their stuff. Their catalogs are great, with lots of photos and information. When I ordered bulbs, they arrived healthy, well-packed and in a timely fashion. Excellent customer service.

By christinereid54 on Jun 28, 2018 8:57 PM, concerning J.L.Hudson, Seedsman:

I have been ordering seeds from J. L. Hudson for years and have always been pleased. They have an interesting collection; it's worth getting the catalog just to peruse its pages. Follow the instructions and you just might get a complimentary pack of seeds included in your order.

By scvirginia on Jun 28, 2018 9:21 AM, concerning Mail-Order Natives:

I ordered 4 plants from MON this spring, and was impressed by their communication, their prices, their selection, and when I received my order, all plants were well packed and healthy.

The plants (2 shrubs, 2 forbs) continue to do well, and I definitely will want to order more plants from them in the not-too-distant future.

By Pistil on Jun 15, 2018 11:53 PM, concerning Keeping it Green Nursery:

Owner Arlen Hill is an extraordinary young plant hunter and propagator. You can visit his private botanical garden 90 minutes north of Seattle, and buy plants on site (plan half a day, but he is not open daily), or mail order them. He brings van-loads of stock to local specialty sales like at Heronswood and the Rhododendron Species Garden sale.
He specializes in hardy orchids and woodland perennials, and has LOTS of exotic plants. He has more species of Sorbus than the Arboretum in Seattle. No matter how much a plant geek you are, he will have plants you never saw before.
