Some new reviews from the ATP Green Pages:

pirl recommended River's Dahlias and wrote:

The owner is Eugene Kenyon; a more helpful person would be difficult to find. I had grown the dahlia, Tartan, in the past and wanted it again. He notified me on 11/30/15 to state the site was open for 2016 ordering. I ordered that day! Eugene really cares about his customers and it shows. I've Emailed him during the year with questions and he always replies. He is a rare find in this world of plants. Here's Tartan:

Pippi recommended Northern Lights Daylilies and wrote:

Last year was my first order with Mike. I actually made 2 orders within 1 month for spring delivery. As stated, they are single fans, but what beauties. They were large for a single fan. Plus, several bloomed in August and September, so I was able to get pollen to freeze for next year's hybridizing. I intend to order some more this year. He has a sale on now for anyone interested. Below are 4 that bloomed. Outer Limits Scarlet Epaulette Very Cherry (bonus) Taylors Afterglow

robertduval14 recommended Victory Seed Company and wrote:

I had won a gift cert from Victory during one of ATP's fantastic Not-A-Raffle Raffles late last year and put it to use early this year by purchasing some peas, radish, carrot, and wildflower seeds. The website was easy to navigate, checkout went smoothly, and my product arrived in a very timely manner. Packaging and included info were top-rate. Victory has gained a lifelong customer in me! Thank you very much, @MikeD and Victory Seeds!

We keep growing, because ATP is where all the excitement is these days! Check out these numbers from last week:
