Love this nursery! Great peony roots, great customer service! They don't use chemicals, fungicides, or pesticides, and their peonies are growing amazingly. Got peony roots from them twice, never disappointed.

I bought peony roots from Gold City Flower Gardens and they arrived in time and in great shape. Communication with the company was very easy. I have placed another order for next year and will keep ordering more from this nursery.

By FruitLoop on Feb 4, 2018 7:12 PM, concerning Spare Harvest:

I love this idea of us getting back to knowing each other and sharing what we can. I always have spare herbs and excess fruit when I have an abundant season, but to be able to share glass jars for jam making, scoby starters to be more healthy, and gardening tools is fantastic. When more people jump on board and it grows, it will be an amazing resource for every gardener.

Paul is an absolute joy to talk with, and his daylilies are beautiful. He has opened the nursery as a wedding venue that offers rolling hills and mountain views for remarkable photos.
I have visited him in May for last three years and I'm always treated as family. Last year he hosted rising seniors at the local high school to take senior photos for their yearbook. Who does that??
He gladly shares his knowledge and is very active in the local community and schools.

Once or twice, by accident, I have lost an iris variety or color that I love. The larger nurseries tend to offer only the newest introductions. I sometimes want to replace my old favorites. I have found several of these available at C and T Iris Patch. So far I have made only one purchase, but large rhizomes arrived strong and healthy with good roots. The nursery also sent nice printed labels that I could put on my garden stakes. I look forward to my springtime of bloom.

By magnolialover on Jan 27, 2018 7:36 AM, concerning Klehm's Song Sparrow Nursery:

I have ordered from SongSparrow for years. Their tree peonies in bloom travel well in their amazingly packed box. Their magnolias on their own roots are second to none. They are the perfect planting size to take off once you find the correct location and plant them. Peony roots are 5 eyes usually. Once they sent me the wrong root (this is over dozens of orders over the years) and they kindly replaced it after I sent an email explaining things, with no question.

Having been to their nursery on a local garden club buying tour, I can tell you their staff is kind, courteous, knowledgeable and more than helpful. Roy, Sarah, Jose, and Tannis are just a few who go out of their way to provide you with information, answer your questions, and even help you figure out how to take your full heavy box to check out. Their greenhouses are full of well cared for and unique plants.

SongSparrow is one of my favorite places on the planet to shop. I always know I will find something different here and they will give me a plan for success in growing it. I love how excited and knowledgeable they are about their plants. They come with my highest recommendation.

This information comes to me from my online friend at 'Organic's Best Urban Gardner'. (Intentional spelling to get attention.)

If you live in the Sacramento, California area and you are waiting for your new garden to begin producing food, or if you live in an apartment where gardening is not permitted, you can receive a box of lovely food, delivered to your home or office.
Farm Fresh to You also has a 'refer a friend' program. Check it out!!

By plantladylin on Jan 21, 2018 1:06 PM, concerning Don't Repot That Plant!:

I recently purchased this very informative book on Amazon and I highly recommend it for those who are new to growing indoor container plants!

I have been interested in houseplants and have been growing houseplants for more than 50 years, and this book is written in a manner that is very easy to understand, offering great advice about caring for and keeping your houseplants happy and healthy! I think it is a great asset for novice growers, as well as older houseplant enthusiasts.

By plantmanager on Jan 19, 2018 2:52 PM, concerning Bob Smoley's Gardenworld:

I had never ordered from Bob Smoley, but I'd heard about his plants for years. I finally ordered an aloe collection and a collection of Thai hybrid Euphorbia milii. When the plants came, they were carefully packed, and each one was in fantastic shape. They were well grown, and not a bug in sight! I got them potted up and they look very good! I was impressed, and will be ordering more soon. He has a great inventory!

By Bhappyclam on Jan 19, 2018 7:19 AM, concerning Onalee's Seeds:

We have ordered plants and seeds from this PROFESSIONAL - extremely humanistic person for many years...have taught botany, horticulture...blab..blab... for over 30 years and I must tell everybody that this supplier is the best ever.

By gradient on Jan 12, 2018 8:53 AM, concerning Swallowtail Garden Seeds:

Great service. They even emailed that their shipment would be delayed due to the wildfires that were raging through the area at the time. But I hadn't even noticed the delay and the seeds arrived quickly. I used them for the great selection of herbs and echinacea that are not widely available.

By Australis on Jan 12, 2018 3:55 AM, concerning Liliums in Australia:

This is an older book, published in 1967. However, it still contains very useful advice for growing Liliums and some species in Australia, focussing on the southern states due to their more suitable climate. A good book for the beginner or intermediate grower in Australia.

By gradient on Jan 9, 2018 1:41 PM, concerning High Mowing Organic Seeds:

A great source for organic seeds. If you do microgreens, then this may be one of the best sources for reasonably priced seeds in bulk. A fun, informative catalog.

By gradient on Jan 5, 2018 9:41 AM, concerning Sustainable Seed Company:

A great seed company with a huge variety. I particularly like their large selection of cover crops and heirloom grains. Also, if you need to buy seeds in bulk make sure you check them out. They really do beat the prices of most other companies and their seeds are organic.

By plantmanager on Jan 2, 2018 3:10 PM, concerning Perennial Obsessions:

I recently had my first order from Perennial Obsessions. I was very happy with the way they were packed, and was surprised at how healthy they all were. Cynda's website is easy to use, and filled with beautiful photos of her plants! I can't wait to get there in person!

By ElenaWilliams on Dec 31, 2017 5:55 PM, concerning Victory Seed Company:

Victory Seeds has a great selection of seeds that are not available at the mega size seed companies. They also have the best selection of tomatoes I have seen available, including new to me, dwarf bush tomatoes that produce average size tomatoes! Take a look at their selections.

By Slabrat on Dec 30, 2017 3:14 PM, concerning Swallowtail Garden Seeds:

Second year ordering from Shallowtree. Germination rates are great and the service is second to none! I do appreciate the ease in viewing the website also. Great pictures and easy to follow.

By Deebie on Dec 25, 2017 12:20 PM, concerning Perfect Plants:

I just received my NARR order of three Sweet Drift Roses. Before I got the box opened, the scent emanating from within was heavenly. All three plants were in full bloom, even though I received them 4 days after shipping. This was no fault of Perfect Plants, but a problem with Fed Ex, as it was in the middle of the Christmas rush. Because of a mistake I made in my contact info, I received my order in December instead of September. But even so, they contacted me immediately afterward. This plant has lovely double pink blooms with a lovely fragrance. It's a must have. I'm going to plant them near my doorway to enjoy its scent as I enter and leave home.

I made another mistake in typing the wrong name of the plants I wanted (ADD kicked in), and ended up being shipped 3 Sunny Knockout Roses instead of the Sweet Drift Roses. When I notified them of the error, apologizing profusely as it was my fault, they immediately sent out the correct ones. Now, that's terrific customer service. I will be ordering from them in the future. Their packaging is fantastic and the quality of plants is indeed Perfect.

By Kabby on Dec 15, 2017 10:03 AM, concerning Onalee's Seeds:

Very nice packaging, healthy looking seeds. Quick response in sending seeds, I will be back for more!

By realityfaery on Dec 12, 2017 3:35 AM, concerning SeedsNow:

Love SeedsNow. They really care about the quality of seeds they offer. Not only that: They offer great prices with constant sales. The seeds always look great and the shipping is quick. They are worth every penny and then some.

I ordered some vegetable seeds from them. All of them germinated with no problem.
