In late January 2013, I placed an order with Daisy Farms for a bundle of fifty Jersey Supreme Asparagus crowns for a school garden that I manage. I received the crowns in mid-April 2013 and got exactly what I expected - excellent quality crowns at a reasonable price. The plants shot right up and are doing well. Email communications from this nursery were courteous and to the point - just the way I prefer it.
I highly recommend this company and am likely to order from them again.
I ordered 25 Triple Crown blackberries online from Daisy Farms. I get a confirmation email almost instantly from them.
A couple of days later I receive another email that says that the web site was wrong and the price I was given was incorrect. I called them and they said that I could buy them but not at the price that was on the web site. I told them that if they would not honor the advertised price I was going to cause a stink. The lady put me on hold for a while and said that they just realized they were out of stock. But when they came back in they would let me know.
Over a month later they called and told me they were back in stock but would not honor their original price.
I hate being lied to!

Ok, yes the Asparagus was a great deal from Daisy farms. But why bother to pay for all male asparagus if 50% of it turns out to be female? After 2 years of babying my 500 asparagus plants they are loaded with berries.
I don't know if they don't grow the plants properly or don't rogue out the females but Daisy Farms is a complete rip off if they are selling all male plants that have just as many females as any open pollinated variety.
My suggestion is spend a little more elsewhere and don't get ripped off.On January 11th, 2013, drono changed the rating from negative to neutral and added the following:
A few years later now. I've found that none of the "all male" varieties from Jersey are even close to "all male." This may not be the fault of Daisy farms but rather the seed breeders. I'm changing my rating due to this info.

I ordered 25 roots of horseradish, "Czechoslovakian", using their online order form. The order process was a bit primitive in that I didn't receive a confirmation number or email, so I gave a call a week later to confirm. A week or so after speaking to a pleasant lady who was working on the orders, I received a neatly trimmed and packaged bundle of clean, healthy, uniform roots. I recommend this company for price and quality over speed and technology. I can wait for value.

I have just received my order of Asparagus Crowns and I am extremely pleased with the size and condition.
This is the second time I have ordered from Daisy Farms and I must say you get what you pay for. I have purchased crowns from other vendors in the past and have always been disappointed at the size of the crowns. The crowns I received from Daisy Farms are at least twice the size of the other guys and the price is right.
I highly recommend you give them a try.
ORDERED EVERBEARING & JUNE STRAWBERRY, RASPBERRIES,RHUBARB PLANTS IN JAN. 08 FROM MY WINTER ADDRESS TO BE SHIPPED APRIL 15 TO MY MICHIGAN ADDRESS. JUST 90 MILES AWAY FROM MY MICHIGAN ADDRESS. 21TH OF APRIL NO PLANTS, CALLED HAD NOT DUG RASPBERRIES YET. TOLD THEM TO CANCEL RHUBARB AND RASPBERRIES AND SHIP STRAWBERRIES IMMEDIATELY. WOULD GO OUT MONDAY 21OR 22. NO PLANTS BY FRIDAY 25TH LOOKED UP ORDER WENT OUT LAST WEDNESDAY, FOUND OUT SHIPPED TO MICHIGAN ADDRESS WITH WINTER STREET ADDRESS UPS KNEW THAT AND SENT IT TO WINTER ADDRESS. THEY WOULD SHIP NEW ORDER ON MONDAY 28 OR 29. WAITED AGAIN STILL SAME PROBLEM, HAD PAM CHECK ADDRESS YES THAT WAS CORRECT. SENT PACKAGE OUT APRIL 28 WAITED AGAIN NO PLANTS, MEANWHILE CALLED NEIGHBOR IN FLORIDA AND SAID IF UPS DROPS OFF PLANTS TO REROUTE TO MICHIGAN, WHICH HE DID UPS SAID THEY SHOULD SEND BACK TO SHIPPER. CALLED PAM AGAIN NO PLANTS ANYWHERE, SAID SHE WOULD SHIP AGAIN BUT OF COURSE OUT OF SOME VARITIES BY NOW. SHIPPED AGAIN NEXT WEEK BY NOW 1ST SHIPMENT FINALLY CAME FROM FLORIDA, NOT IN THE BEST OF SHAPE AFTER TRAVELING FOR ALMOST 2 WEEKS IN HEAT, PLANTED THEM. AS OF AUGUST 4 LOOKS LIKE THEY SWITCHED THE EVER BEARING FOR THE JUNE BEARING, MY JUNE BEARING ARE BLOOMING AND NOT MANY RUNNERS AND EVERBEARING ARE NOT BLOOMING AND HAVE RUNNERS ALL OVER THE PLACE. I THINK THIS ORDER WAS SCREWED UP WHEN INPUTED WITH NORTHERN CITY WITH SOUTHERN STREET ADDRESS. SINCE UPS HAS ME ON RECORD OF RECEIVING ITEMS IN FLORIDA THEY JUST ROUTE IT TO THAT STREET ADDRESS. GLAD I CANCELLED THE RED RASPBERRIES AND RHUBARB I MIGHT HAVE GOTTEN THEMBLE BERRIES AND SOUR DOCK FOR PLANTS.

I ordered 25 two-year Jersey Knight asparagus crowns.
When they did not arrive after about 10 days, I sent an e-mail. I got an immediate call from their customer service person. She was very sweet, apologetic, and explained that she was new to the job but was busily straightening out all problems as quickly as she found them. It appears that their online order system had not been working correctly and so they did not actually receive my order.
She was as good as her word. My plants were shipped promptly via UPS. They are huge beautiful crowns. I put them in a pitcher of water and rooting stimulator because I could not plant them that day. The next morning several were already starting to put out little tiny shoots!
I will be ordering from this company again and highly recommend them for the quality of their plants and for the quality of their customer service.
I ordered 1000 Strawberry plants from this company for the spring of 2006. As with most strawberries, the plants look dead at first so you never are sure what you have. I put them all in water for 2 days before planting and all came to life besides 2. They also could possibly have been alive, but I wasn't going to waste my time to see. I must say they have the cheapest plants, and all are doing exceptionally well ( save the 2). I have ordered from other companies over the years and there is no comparison in my eyes. Daisy will get my strawberry plant business!

Small family-owned company specializing in strawberries, bush berries, asparagus, horseradish and rhubarb. I've dealt with them several times over the last 4 or 5 years. Selection is limited but quality of plants is good and prices excellent--lowest I've found on certain varieties of berry, asparagus and rhubarb plants. Service is a bit slow but I've received everything I've ordered in good condition. Survival of plants has been very good.
