The most active threads this week:
Some new reviews from the ATP Green Pages:
recommended Gardens North
Have purchased seeds from Gardens North for many years now. Good service and seeds come with specific germination instructions for that particular species. Good source for seeds not commonly found elsewhere.
recommended Almost Eden
This is probably the 8th time I have ordered from AE and they still don't disappoint - plants are absolutely lovely, great sizes, healthy and incredibly well packed...their prices cannot be beat and they have plants I was unable to find anywhere else - thanks again!
recommended Floyd Cove Nursery
I received my first order from Floyd Cove this year. I encountered excellent communication throughout the process of ordering and receiving my plants. The fans sent were all huge and healthy with excellent packaging. Bonuses included a new introduction for 2016 and a 2015 introduction; this was completely unexpected as the plants I ordered were several older cultivars. I would definitely order from them again.
recommended David's Dragonfly Farm
I bought from David late last spring. He has excellent communication and prices. The plants sent all had extra fans and bonuses were sent. These were some of the greenest, healthiest plants that I have ever received.
Great seller that I would recommend to everyone.
recommended Shady Rest Gardens
I received my first order from Shady Rest Gardens, and I certainly hope there will be more in the future. This order was a perfect example of how business should be conducted. Communications were exemplary, the shipping was timely and professionally handled, and the plants were beyond my expectations. The double fans of the plants I ordered were all more than that, and in some cases three times more. The bonus plant was really a clump! I could not believe how green and fresh the plants looked when I opened them. That to be was the very best bonus one could possibly hope for.
recommended Butchart Gardens Gift Store
All I can say about Butchart Gardens is that it's the most beautiful garden that I have ever seen in my life. Go visit if you are ever anywhere near Victoria, Canada. Simply the best!
recommended Park Lane Daylilies
Kathy Maynard at Park Lane Daylilies is fantastic. She sends large fans with beautiful root systems. She also sends nice bonuses as well. She is such a sweetheart. She tries to accommodate everything and everyone. I'm a repeat customer and will continue to patronize her.
recommended Wynn's Daylily Garden
Gene Wynn is one of the best in the business. I found him on the Lily Auction a few months ago and moved to his website for additional orders. He sends huge fans and very nice bonuses as well. He communicates every step of the way and is willing to answer any question. On the Lily Auction he uses Sonjamae. I highly recommend Wynn's.
recommended Dancing Daylily Garden
Love Becky at Dancing Daylily Garden. Her plants are small, but they have nice healthy roots. She always sends more than the listed double fans. I ordered a double fan of Cimarron Rose and got six fans. I ordered a double of Wispy Rays and got five. She shipped on Saturday and they were on my doorstep on Monday. I highly recommend her!
