I have placed several recent orders for both plants and leaves. Cedar Creek has many varieties that are difficult to find. I have been very pleased with all of my orders. They have been well-packaged and have arrived well-grown and healthy.

I received a leaf order from Cedar Creek Violets this summer. The leaves are very fresh and shipped very quickly. All the leaves rooted and are sending up lots of baby violets. I'm pleased with their leaves and service.
I put in three orders for violet leaves this year. The only thing i would like is the stemes be a little longer. Well order again.

I was lucky enough to be able to by and meet the Rollins and visit their basement growing operation. I was like a kid in a candy store with no money. I bought 6 healthy big plants , and was impressed by the variety and number of violets he grows. Will buy from him again, when I have some more money. LOL LOU

I placed an order with Cedar Creek Violets in early December for a variety of minature violet leaves and was extremely impressed not only by the quality of the leaves sent (several of which have started to show healthy plantlet growth) but with their packaging.
To protect the plant material from the cold the leaves were surrounded with insulation in a small box with a heat pack and that box was also insulated with another layer of insulation in a larger box all for a very decent shipping rate.
The leaves were well labeled in individual packets and despite the freezing temperatures arrived in fabulous condition.

I have been ordering pots from Cedar Creek with great success. Very fast shipping.
I do recommend from the Kentucky group "Kentucky gooseberries". Mine is almost in Exhibition shape.
Leaves are always difficult to sell because who can tell what leaf will "take" and what one won't.
I haven't ordered any other gesneriads from them so I can't comment about the quality here. On May 4th, 2009, divvajacko added the following:
Great order. One of my plants, Buckeye Country Gal, is sooooo big. nicely packed. I'll be back to be sure.
Dave Rollins, who runs Cedar Creek Violets is a very good chap. Reliable, honest and very helpful. I have bought several
dozen violets from him, and never had a problem. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He also is the hybridizer of the the Kentucky series of violets, rather nice plants, and I own a few myself. He was born into an avid AV familly and knows his stuff.

I have been buying plants from Cedar Creek Violets for about a year. They are incredible plants, great price, great packaging...I don't get voilets from anyone else. You've got to try this company.

I ordered a Columnea "Early Bird" from David. The plant received was not in a healthy state so I emailed and they sent me another right away in great condition.
Shipping is extremely fast, communication is very reliable and the way they package their plants is ingenious. There was hardly any damage during shipping on this fragile type plant.
I was very pleased and highly recommend this company.On November 10th, 2004, CaptMicha changed the rating from positive to negative and added the following:
I'm going to have to change my feedback to a negative. My new plant is not healthy as well. It's very small, and the leaves constantly fall off because the branches are browned and shriveling.
I don't believe they are selling healthy stock. I followed the exact care my specific plant requires and it's been ailing ever since I unpacked it.
