Some new reviews from the ATP Green Pages:

grannysgarden recommended Long's Gardens and wrote:

Long's Gardens is a great site to find irises in all classes, both old and new varieties. The owners are great people to do business with. They are easy to communicate with, send great rhizomes, and are generous with bonuses. I have done business with them in the past and will do so in the future. I highly recommend them.

bisbeegirl recommended Colorblends and wrote:

I absolutely love Colorblends. I have been purchasing daffodils and tulip bulbs. The bulbs I have received are excellent in size and quality, and the blooms are amazing.

Emquinn recommended Bear W Daylily Farm and wrote:

I have been visiting Kim and Micky at Bear W for several years. I always enjoy the visit and their hospitality and generosity. They have a good selection of Daylily forms, and old as well as new. They also sell Hostas.

Lilydaydreamer recommended Maryott's Gardens and wrote:

I have ordered from Bill Maryott for the last 5 years and will continue to do so! Always large healthy plants and many have additional fans over the 2 promised. Extremely generous bonus plants, which are often his new introductions. Highly recommended.

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