|TennesseeDave recommended Maranatha Nursery and Landscape and wrote:
Having recently developed an interest in Brugsmansias, I did what I seem to always do. I read as much as I could here at ATP and then went on an active internet search to see what was available and from whom. I found the BGI site and that led me to Maranatha Nursery. I looked at their Brugsmansia selection and of course the ones I wanted were either not available or would not be available for a few weeks. I wanted some plants NOW, so I called and spoke with owner Steve Balliet. We spoke for about 30 minutes or so and I learned so much regarding these plants. He is a very straightforward individual that is willing to take the time and effort to explain everything to you in great detail. I ordered 2 plants on a Sunday (both 1-gallon size). The plants arrived on Friday ... beautiful, healthy, and much bigger than I thought they would be. Both plants were 18"-24" in height. The plant comes with planting and cultivation information. The packing was superb and the shipping costs reasonable. I highly recommend Steve and Maranatha for Brugsmansia. It is worth a phone call just to talk with Steve about Brugs. He will eagerly inform and entertain you. You do have to overlook the fact that even though he is in Texas, he is a diehard LSU Tiger fan. Other than that little unfortunate fact, he is great to talk to and do business with. Go Dawgs!!

The lilium bulbs are fresh, huge, and healthy. There is absolutely no "junk" (like the junk some other companies send). Seller always includes bonus bulbs and charges fair prices. The results speak for themselves. 4 stars!
|ARoseblush recommended Gary Ibsen's Tomato Fest (Seeds) and wrote:
This is a terrific site if you grow "organic" heirloom tomatoes from seed. I have tried about 10 different varieties, and I have had very successful results in my mountain garden here in Vermont. Here is a small excerpt from his "About me": "Gary and Dagma Lacey currently grow more than 600 varieties of certified organic, heirloom tomatoes, many originating from seeds sourced from family farms around the world. They also cherish and share the tomato histories and family stories that accompany the generations of tomato seed saving." When you order your seeds from Tomato Fest, Gary also sends a bonus packet or two of heirloom seeds along with your order. Fabulous site!

My friends and I have been going to Delano Daylilies for the past 5 years and really love it. The Newmans are a wonderful couple and the garden and daylilies are just beautiful!
We keep growing, because ATP is where all the excitement is these days! Check out these numbers from last week:
