Has anyone ordered from them before? If so, what are your experiences?

I didn't see them listed on the Garden Watchdog.

I never heard of them, but I think they are a wholesale company.

Susan,

This is from their website, the first page (on that link I posted above)....

"Located in Mechanicsville, Virginia, we supply plants to garden centers, landscapers, and to retail customers."

So, maybe we can buy from them directly. Smiling

Yes, they might be reaching out to the public. Just no comments in WD. I am surprised at the total lack of information.

Susan,

How close are you to these people?

I just scrolled farther down and it states....

"WE DO NOT MAIL OR SHIP RETAIL PLANTS. Retail Sales are only here at the nursery."

It's a little over a hundred miles. I finally found something, they did 2.9 million dollars in sales. Too bad they do not do mail order.

That's a very odd way to sell. Retail at the nursery, and wholesale by mail. I buy my plants mostly wholesale and no way would I pay those prices. I think Susan should do a field trip and scope them out.

Penstemon 'Miss Moneypenny' and I can't remember what else. I thought the prices were pretty high to start with and then, the thought of shipping them, I thought it was going to be a very high shipping cost.

Susan,

I did a google map to see where you were in relation to Richmond and I didn't realize you were around the Norfolk area and not too far from Virginia Beach. Green Grin! Thumbs up
