I've only ordered plants online twice and Flowers & Greens Alstroemeria was my first time.
As the other reviewers have mentioned, Roy is great to work with. First time ordering plants online and first-year gardening so I had a million questions before submitting my order. I bought around 6 plants. All have sprouted nicely and one has even given me a nice stem of pretty flowers.
I'm currently growing everything in pots now but as soon as the new garden gets put in, I will definitely be putting in an order for lots more. Can't wait.

When I ordered three clumps of alstroemeria I did not expect such enormous ones.Very pleasantly surprised.Massive root systems and arrived in good shape.Excellent communication with owner, too.

Great looking rhisomes (I think they're rhisomes). I ordered and received my plants within 5 days (from California) with a weekend between!
The only negative, more of a suggestion, I could give is that the shopping cart on the website said it would add shipping (at least I recall reading that it would) and it didn't. I would have added another plant had I known how inexpensive shipping would have been. (the FAQ gave the typical shipping as almost twice what I paid.
The rhisomes have already put up a couple shoots each and I'm eagerly awaiting seeing the flowers, if the pictures on the website are an accurate indication I'll likely place another order before the summer is out!

Roy is a one of a kind super guy. He is friendly and quick to respond to any questions. I bought 3 plants from him and all were very healthy and shipped quickly! I would buy from again and again!
