I encourage anyone to do business with this company! Sincerely LGS
I order regularly from Weiss Brothers: although I can't attest to shipping over long distances because I live near the nursery, plants arrive packed superbly and in great condition, indicating that Weiss begins with superior stock and care. Many perennials are available through the catalogue which are not available in their retail nursery, service is friendly and professional, and a delight for locals - no shipping is charged for us! What a way to engender good will.
I have ordered from many mail-order companies, both wholesale and retail, and I have to say that Weiss Brothers is better than most for variety of cultivars. Just look at the number of penstemons they offer! Each plant I ordered - and there were many - was healthy, grew vigorously, and flowered as promised (i.e., color, and size as indicated in the catalog.) And you can't beat the price.
I have been using Weiss Brothers for about four years now. They are always very pleasant when I call. The plants have always arrived in excellent condition--they pack them very carefully. The plants are also the best quality--healthy, vigorous, and growing. I purchase all of my perennials from Weiss Brothers. That's how good they are!
I just wanted to submit some comments about two mail-order nurseries that I used for the first time last fall: Bluestone Perennials and Weiss Brothers Nursery. I was very impressed with the plants I received from both companies, and the folks who answer the phones, took my orders, and answered my questions had very pleasant attitudes and were helpful. I was also impressed with the quick service I got. Both orders arrived in a very short time period and were packed very well in their boxes. I think the prices for items from these nurseries are quite good considering the size and health of the plants. Weiss Brothers has also implemented a pricing scheme so that all plants are one price, period. I like the simplicity of the scheme.
I have done business with Weiss Brothers for several years, and I am very pleased with their quality and service. Prices are reasonable, and plants arrive healthy and carefully packed. They actually believe me (probably because they are also in California) when I ask for late delivery in fall and early delivery in spring. Too many eastern companies insist upon delivering the plants when it is in the 100's here i.e. early October and mid to late May).
