My visit to Heavenly Gardens was, indeed, heavenly. Everyone was very helpful, the gardens were well-tended and nicely laid out, and the plants I purchased came as small clumps. Jamie's flowers have a certain aesthetic delicacy that has to be seen in person to be truly appreciated.

I inquired about prchasing a daylily from Mr. Gossard around 12/02/08. He promply responed that he had stock and the purchase price and methods of payment. This included thru email, which I opted for. This was a big mistake on my part.
Since that time, I have tried several emails and calling his home phone and leaving a message with an unknown female asking for confirmation that my information was received and my order has been placed. The last being earlier today 02/02/09.
This was my first time buying directly from a hybridizer. I am not sure I will repeat this experience. I am very frustrated and I was very excited about this purchase in the beginning.

Mr. Gossard did respond by email today. He reported he had no record of my info in emails and apologized for any inconvenience. But my order was being held if I still wanted it.
I have sent payment thru Pay Pal and will be looking forward to my Heavenly Angel Ice Daylily. I am satisfied that this matter has been handled in a satisfactory manner.On February 6th, 2009, nanny_56 added the following:
Last comment regarding this matter.
I feel I owe Jamie Gossard a HUGE apology. Though I sincerely thought I was sending emails that were being ignored at his end. I know now that the way I was doing the emails...going into deleted items and sending a reply from there, they were in effect going nowhere.
It was a big example of my not being computer savy leading to a total misunderstanding.
So, I sincerely and publicly apologize Jamie. On June 5th, 2009, nanny_56 added the following:
Received my order today from Heavenly Gardens. My order plant is a nice 4 fan clump and I got a single fan bonus of a 2009 intro.

With cutting edge daylily introductions packaged well and shipped in a timely matter, it is always a thrill to order from Jamie Gossard. And there's always a wowser bonus or three included! Highly recommended.
