Chris has a good selection of plants and shipping is only $10.00 no matter how many plants you purchase. The prices are reasonable and the plants are well packed and arrive in great condition. He is very generous with his advice and I wish I could get to the farmers market to see his greater selections. The only caveat is that you MUST make sure the plants you buy are suitable to where you wil grow them, just the same as any larger nursery. I will order from them again!

I am very pleased to be able to add my voice in recommending Tropical Plants & More. Though I've not ordered Orchids from Ken yet, I look forward to it in the near future! I have ordered supplies that I just can't find locally. My first purchase was a gorgeous piece of Portuguese Cork for mounting a baby Staghorn fern that I had acquired from a friend. The quality and beauty of this piece along with the affordable price were very intriguing. The care taken in packaging this piece was outstanding. I knew then that I'd definitely be shopping here again. Ken's passion for Orchids and tropical plants is contagious. He is always available, and he has a true desire for you to succeed in growing all these beauties. He's not just a seller; he is a teacher! He is always there to answer even what may seem to be the silliest of questions, which for a "newbie" like me, is invaluable. My most recent purchase of an 8 qt. Special Cattleya Mix was so beautifully mixed, and so generous, that I'll have to be adding to my orchid "collection" soon! Along with a sprayer/mister, that has become my all-time favorite! I know that I will be going back to Tropical Plants & More for all of my Orchid/Tropical & More needs...and wants!

Gosh, they are just fabulous. Last year I purchased several dahlias. I had problems with several of them. I let them know and they gave me credit, even for the ones that rotted due to weather and not anything they did. I used my credit to get gladiolus this year but I did buy one dahlia. When I got my order yesterday I received a free dahlia in addition! But the best part was the wonderful hand written note from Scott, the owner. Oh, and they have a lovely monthly newsletter I always enjoy. I will definitely buy from them year after year.
|virginiarose recommended Swan Island Dahlias and wrote:
I ordered 7 Dahlias a few months ago and was given a bonus dahlia for a total of 8. I did an Internet chat and was trying to add a couple of white ones, but the order had already been sent to the warehouse. The rep. did offer me half price shipping if I wanted to do a second order, so I did. I received the dahlias a few days ago and was glad they waited for good weather and did not ship at the normal time because even zone 8 still had freezing temps. I am very happy with the service and the packing. The tubers do look freshly dug, they were shipped in dry peat moss, and they look great! Highly recommended.
