Has anyone ever purchased from this vendor? Seems to have a really good selection at reasonable prices. How about Aspelund?

Gary,
I placed an order with them a couple of weeks ago. They have Silly Sally, and I had been wanting that one. A lady who posts a lot on Planet Peony listed them in her favorite on line Peony sources, which I was glad to see as I had already ordered.

LG - My garden grows with love and a lot of hard work.

I also placed my first order with OMP this year. They have one that I couldn't find on their site but saw a pic of it on Facebook, Spumoni Whispers, that I added to my order, had to email back and forth a couple of times to get everything straight again, they were very helpful. Said to tell my friends that they send larger than normal divisions and to check them out. Hoping the roots are as good as their service and friendliness!
Aspelund I've only ordered from once several years ago. It took an incredibly long time to get my order, they claimed it was mailed priority but wouldn't provide a tracking number, they finally sent a box after going back and forth with them for weeks but they left a root out. They did replace it and I got it a week later. None of the roots I got from them have done incredibly well but they've all survived. Roots were pretty average if I remember correctly. I'd probably only order from them again if they had something exceptional that I couldn't get elsewhere. I do still look at their site every year, though!

I agree with Liz regarding Aspelund. Ordered once 2 years ago and there was an error with my order on-line. I tried to contact them and it took the whole summer to fix this error. Eventually everything was resolved but I did not like the process. I would order from them if I need something the other good peony places don't have.

How about adding a recommendation for Oh, My Peonies to the Green Pages if you like this company? There are so few vendors on the list at present:

I want to see the roots sent before adding a recommendation

I was surprised that Swenson Gardens were not among recommended companies, so added.

An oversight, they send quality roots!
