I received my order from Floyd Cove Nursery a few days ago.
I have to say that the plants were the biggest most beautiful plants I have ever
received in the mail.
I have bought a lot of plants from the LA, and some form other well known breeder/nursery.
New releases form the breeder seemed a little high for me but I really wanted a few of Guy's newest releases.
Well just wanted to pass along the info -
The size of the plants, healthy looking and the bonuses were great.
I change my mind - the prices aren't bad at all when you consider all of the above.

Just wanted to give Floyd Cove Nursery a great big Thank you and pass on the info to anyone who might wonder.
I will certainly order from Floyd Cove and other breeders again.

The plants that I received from Floyd Cove were huge, lush and still green. Very little yellowing from being closed up in a box with no light or fresh oxygen. They are out performing all other shipments from Florida. Some have decreased slightly in size. All were treated exactly the same, opened as soon as received, drenched in CEASE for rust control, soaked for hydration, and potted up in the very same soil mix. They sit side by side in their sunny location. Only the plants from Floyd Cove look like whole plants. All of the others are stunted and not yet fully Green and still maintain their cut foliage. I can't say what made the difference. My best guess is prompt shipping and duration. I am in CA. I received FC on a Wednesday but most of the others on a Friday.

I second all of the above! Floyd Cove is the best!!! Thumbs up

I always really look forward to seeing (buying!) what the hybridizers have for new introductions each year, and there's always a wonderful gift sent along with the intro(s). But I think my very favorites are Floyd Cove, the Trimmers and the Lambertsons -- incredible new intros every year, and twice a year in the case of Floyd Cove. But as I think about it there are other really great favorite hybridizers, too, probably too numerous to remember at the moment...
