|I thought the price and reviews were too good to be true, but I ordered 9 Frostproof Gardenias and BOY were they BEAUTIFUL when they arrived! Not a leaf out of place and all stems intact! I am unbelievably pleased with this purchase - the plants were larger than expected and came packed with care! These plants are better and far less expensive than the ones at the huge nursery down the street. I highly recommend this vendor and will order again - if I can find any more room in my yard!!!

Very satisfied with the four brug plants here, which were very well rooted, thick and woody plants, and not only were they well rooted but also much larger and taller than I expected. They were very well packed and I couldn't be more pleased. Communications were key here with me, since I had given her the wrong address to ship to, and then she had to re-ship the plants.
I would definitely purchase from this company again.

This second order arrived in great shape, these Brugs were potted up last week and they are doing great and have started showing more growth. Thank you again for some well rooted plants.

|I ordered a Lion's Ear, Leonotis leonurus from this compapany just a few days ago. What a beautiful plant they sent. Full with much branching and healthy leaves. It was packed very carefully and I don't think it lost a single leaf in transition. A few weeks ago I ordered a Justicia sp., Mexican honey suckle, from K.K. too. It is growing and doing beautifully even with the cooler than normal weather. This company deserves its ranking as one of the best. It certainly is. Of course, I highly recommend them.

|I ordered two Osmanyhus Fragrans, got an e-mail telling me when they shipped and how. When they arrived yesterday I understood the disclaimer on the web page about not guaranteeing USPS damage. Despite the shipping triangle tube being crushed and two sides completely severed, the plants were so well packed that they were healthy and undamaged. Much larger plants than expected, too. Now to see if I can keep them alive in Las Vegas' climate.

|I ordered a foxtail fern and was very pleased with the value of the purchase along with the quality of the plant. Service was prompt and although there was confusion about the mailing address, Kathy immediately corrected the situation once it was brought to her attention. In addition, I was impressed with her quick e-mail correspondence. I would recommend this seller.

|I ordered two Princess plants which arrived promptly. They were spindly with very little root which was wrapped in plastic wrap. The plants were wrapped in newspaper, no containers. I planted them anyway. As expected one plant did not show any signs of survival. Miraculously the other is still alive. When I contacted Kathy her reply was, "I only guarantee that they arrive alive. What happens after that is up to you." In my view a plant that won't grow is dead no matter what color it is on arrival. I won't be ordering from this supplier again.

On Jul 13, 2011 1:02 PM, Katz Kuntry Kuttins responded with:
When someone "quotes" me, they should at least "quote" what I said. I did not say "what happens after that is up to you" ... here is copy and paste from my email "I refund or replace any plants which may arrive doa (unless it's USPS or FedEx's fault). I have no control over plants after that.
Please review my "information" page on my website "http://www.katzkuntrykuttins.com/information.htm".
I haven't received any complaints about any of my plants that have been purchased and all of the ones I have here are all growing fine. If there was something wrong with a particular variety, it would be more than one of them and I would go above and beyond to send refunds."
You have had them for a month ... I do not have control over how someone takes care of them ...I received the plugs in January and it's now July, yes they had good root balls ... I have been shipping the same way for almost 10 years, everyone seems to like how I package them.
You won't be ordering from me again ... that's your prerogative.
I grow plants because I love them and I would never send out crappy plants.

|I ordered 5 plants in mid April. Although it took her over 2 weeks to ship to me (I was oh-soooo waiting-and impatient!) they all arrived (with an email to let me know they were on the way) very healthy, of excellent size, and one already to bloom. What I liked the most was the care taken in packing, and the fact they are disease and insect free. I waited a while to post just to be sure.
I didn't like the 'wait' but also understand she is small, most likely does this work herself, and would definitely recommend ordering from her to anyone. Like I said, I'm an impatient person, and if it took her two weeks to be sure I got what I did, well worth it. Thanks Kathy, they're beautiful!

|I ordered a fox tail fern as a gift. When the fern arrived, it was in very poor shape - many of the fronds had fallen off in the box and most were yellow. It had clearly been shipped in very poor condition and when I contacted the company this was their response:
I guarantee my plants not to be doa. They leave here healthy with a large rootball. Of course plants are going to be stressed a bit being stuck in a dark box for a week. The only perfect mailorder plant is a silk one. Some yellow is not a big deal, just pluck them off ... the plant is fine, new fronds will sprout back out.
Plants should immediately be placed in a container of water to rehydrate in a shady spot when opened.
I will not be purchasing from Kathy again
Company representative comment on March 31, 2012:
On Mar 31, 2012 6:10 AM, Katz Kuntry Kuttins responded with:
I'm sorry, but it's not possible for that fern to have mostly yellow fronds in a few days shipping ... they are extremely hardy and I could throw one out in the yard and it would be a few weeks before it turned yellow. Those plants don't even need to have the rootball kept moist in shipping, but I wrap them anyway.
I'm sorry you are so unhappy.

|I ordered two Tibouchina plants and they arrived in great shape two days after they were sent. They were carefully wrapped in newspaper and the plastic-sealed roots with soil were still moist. As I requested, the two different varieties (one bush, one tree) were labeled with a tag. I'm happy that the smaller one has two buds so I expect that the bush will have profuse flower blossoms sooner rather than later. This is a reliable company to deal with.
