I'm a native plant gardener and there is only one native sedum in Georgia, Sedum nevii. Mountain Crest Gardens had it and for a reasonable price. I was a little skeptical about the plants being in 2-inch pots, but they arrived in great shape, very full and definitely ready for up-potting. I would not hesitate to order from them again.

I bought a clematis from them in 2019. Normally, buying something online I figure I am trading off a smaller plant in exchange for getting an unusual variety. Not so here. This was the most vigorous clematis I've ever purchased. Way better than the scraggly things in the local garden center. Now, it wasn't cheap, but it was absolutely worth the money on quality alone, even for a common variety I might be able to find locally. This will be my first stop for clematis from now on.

This website is an indispensable resource for Identifying plants in bloom. You can even add a location where you have found this particular plant and the week(s) it was in bloom in your area.

This was my first order and I purchased the Queen of the Night Epiphyllum. The order was processed quickly, extra help was provided during the payment process and the order arrived on time. This was a gift for my sister who was thrilled with the quality of the plants. I was very impressed with the service and and would definitely order again.

Great fan size and fabulous bonuses. We ordered 8 plants total, and ended up getting 7 bonuses! One of the those bonuses was a 2020 intro.

This was my second time ordering from MP Flowers and working with Patty is so easy. I placed an order and had no problems adding one additional. When the package arrived, it was like opening a present. The plants were wrapped in a special paper that kept them looking amazing - the freshest looking plants that I've ever received in the mail! Then add two great bonus plants, making this a must buy again experience.

Placed my first order with Victory Seeds during the Covid-19 pandemic. They were one of the only companies still taking orders, and I appreciated the straightforward way in which they communicated with potential customers (warning of shortages, long shipping times, etc.). Order was well-packed and spot on when it arrived. I'm thrilled to have gotten several hard-to-find varieties I've been coveting, and so far germination has been rapid & excellent. I will ABSOLUTELY be ordering from this company again!

I am highly recommending Greta's. Each package of seed is $3.50 CAD, and ordering online is available and easy to do. There is also the option to shop at the store on site, but I don't live in the same province. Greta answers the phone, is helpful, and the seed packages are nicely sized. Great selection as well!

I've purchased several of Steve's introductions online and received generous divisions and great bonuses!

By ERROR1755 on Apr 7, 2020 11:25 AM, concerning Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Co.:

I've bought a variety of seeds from Baker Creek over the past half-year, and so far I've had nothing but positive experiences. All of the seeds arrive undamaged, I've gotten a 95%+ germination rate on them, and the prices are affordable. Definitely a place I'll be buying from again.

By DonfromPA on Apr 6, 2020 2:07 PM, concerning Mountain Crest Gardens:

I recently placed my first sempervivum order with Mountain Crest Gardens. This company has a really super variety of choices and it took me quite a while to make my final decisions. The semps arrived a few days ago: labeled and accompanied by detailed instructions on what to do upon receipt. Excellent packaging and plants were in wonderful condition. Heartily recommend this vendor and will certainly order from them again.

By DonfromPA on Apr 6, 2020 2:00 PM, concerning Simply Succulents:

Placed my first order with Simply Succulents for a few Sempervivums and a
Sedum. Kept my first order quite small as I wanted to see how well the plants were packaged and the condition of the plants. Well, I was more than just pleasantly surprised - excellent packaging and plants were tag-identified and in remarkably
good condition.

Immediately after placing the order I saw that the item I thought I had deleted actually appeared on the order. I immediately e-mailed the company and asked that either the particular item be removed, or perhaps replaced. A very short time later I received a call from Sue responding to my request. They wanted me to be pleased with their service. Our conversation was very pleasant and we both ended the conversation equally satisfied.

I heartily recommend this vendor and will be surely ordering more sempervivums and sedums in the future.

By ajslezak on Mar 28, 2020 5:44 AM, concerning Annie's Heirloom Seeds:

Wonderful selection of heirloom and organic heirloom seeds, books, tools, seed starting supplies, etc. Many hard to find seed varieties. Must see the web site! Locally owned small business. Great service and prices. How-to videos and recipes also available.

By mmolyson on Mar 23, 2020 12:28 PM, concerning Johnny's Selected Seeds:

I was looking for equipment for starting my seeds, namely the common 1020 trays and the clear covers for humidity control. As we all know expense includes, not just the price of an item but also the cost of shipping. I was thrilled to find that both the per pack cost and shipping costs at Johnny's was below their competitors! They have a notice in red on their website that there is an upcharge for shipping on the clear covers, I was concerned at first because another online store charged $23 for shipping this item. It turned out that Johnny's charged an extra $5 on top of the already low shipping cost for the rest of my order. What a bargain! Also as a first-time customer, they gave me a coupon for $10 off a $50 order on my next order. I couldn't find a better deal anywhere else!

By WIVictoryGardener on Mar 23, 2020 8:30 AM, concerning Victory Seed Company:

Prompt shipping and so far 100% germination rate!

By Macmex on Mar 22, 2020 9:16 AM, concerning Victory Seed Company:

I have had the pleasure of communicating with Mike Dunton as well as purchasing seed from Victory Seeds. This is the real deal. Victory Seeds is truly a preservation minded seed company and well deserving of our business.

Quality is a strength for Victory Seeds.

By wildflowers on Mar 15, 2020 8:54 AM, concerning The Growers Exchange (aka The Grower's Exchange):

I'm very happy to have found The Growers Exchange! They specialize in herbs of all kinds and have many herbs I've been wanting to try for awhile, some that are very hard to find. They also have herbs that I couldn't find seeds to grow myself.

I just received my first order of herb plants from them and everything looks great!

Shipping has started for some zones. Packing is fantastic, Customer Service is very good and they provide excellent information and instructions on all of their plants. I'm already looking at more plants to try. If you have any interest in growing herbs, I definitely recommend giving them a look!

Here's a couple of pictures.

An excellent source for Japanese morning glory seeds.

I am new to the Monarch movement! Christopher @ Restless Natives Nursery has been a HUGE assistance to me. He has given me great insight on milkweed & which to plant. He also answered each of my emails without grimacing. Thank you Christopher!

By jathton on Jan 1, 2020 8:34 PM, concerning Cricket Hill Garden:

Before sitting down to write this review I took the time to look at their website pretty carefully. Here are a few of the conclusions I reached:
... Their website is very attractive and very easy to navigate. The photos of the plants they offer are large enough and of sufficiently high quality to give a very clear idea of the plants they offer.
...Theirs is not the largest selection of peonies offered by other internet sources, but their selection indicates a very discerning eye and an inclination to offer unique varieties.
... They offer a very good selection of herbaceous peonies, tree peonies, and intersectional Itoh peonies.
... They also offer something I haven't seen before... a small selection of older tree peonies. These are plants that are fully ready to bloom... for those among us who just don't want to wait.
... They also offer a selection of fruits and berries you'll doubtless not find anywhere else. One particularly interesting offering consists of several varieties of "Perry" pears. These heirloom pears date back to at least the 1790's and are unique because they are not eaten fresh. They are, instead, the foundation for hard pear ciders.
... Make sure you visit the "Learn" page on their site. You'll find good planting and cultural instructions... but you will also find fascinating sections on peony history and peony art.
This is a small, unique nursery well worth a visit.
Incidentally, this is the nursery that has the peony I have been looking for these past many years.
