Dave has set up a company recommendation page! Kinda like WatchDog, but only here. I put in Palatine's & RU's information as those two I can give high marks for.

I'm glad you recommended those two, Toni. They probably are the only ones I would recommend these days, although Pickering has its good points too.

The roses I got from GVR aren't bad roses, but I wasn't comfy in giving them a recommendation based upon the 2011 ordering session: how their website was broken for so long, how you had to contact them to verify everything, etc, plus the 3 roses I tried to order on their website weren't available when I ended up having to call & confirm! The 2010 was also a SNAFU as I had put in my order, then they lost my order, so had to reorder everything again. I am extremely disappointed in Edmund's Roses, so didn't want to write a recommendation for them. I should write a recommendation for Burling, though.. she's got awesome roses with decent prices, just a bit harder to order.

I'll do one for Chamblee. They've been a success for me and the people in our Rose Society.
I'm working on a few for daylily and iris sellers that I've dealt with for years and years,

Dave's been fiddlefarting with the tabs all day. Can't find the thread in a 5 second search, so just emailed him. How else am I going to change my avatar to something else retarded?

I meant Toni because she said she couldn't find the thread but I imagine she's watching that forum anyway otherwise how would she even know about the current updates?! Rolling my eyes.

Thanks, Sue. I had never looked at that forum. It really is like an interactive users guide.

No, I don't watch that forum. I just happened to have noticed that the tabs were katawonkie & then a thread towards the bottom of the page describing the changes.
