I ordered a Chawan Basu Lotus tuber from them. I was directed to them by another grower who had taken more orders than he had tubers to fill (a story for another day). The tuber I order from Ponds, Plants and More arrived as promised, carefully packed and looking really healthy. I planted it the same day and it appears to be exiting dormancy.
I just received the most beautiful lotus tuber (Mrs Perry D Slocum) I have ever seen, with well over an inch long growing tip . Very healthy, securely packed and quickly shipped. They even called me to make sure I understood the planting instructions. This is a first rate company and I will be buying from them again.
