I was looking for a specific pepper plant (ghost/bhut jolokia) for spring 2016 and since the min order was six plants I went ahead and ordered 2 other hard to find peppers (aji dulce) and 2 ping tung eggplants. Since I am often traveling, I asked if they could let me know when they shipped. I received a confirmation and indication they would ship the following Tuesday and provide tracking. Tues can and so did the tracking number and when the plants arrived they were very healthy. They were not tall but certainly lush and in good shape. I think the thing that sets Lazy Ox Farm apart was the care and packing of their plants. I order from a lot of companies, big (won't mention names...) and small. The simple cardboard boxes and use of dowels to hold things in place worked extremely well. I would happily order from them again. Thanks!
Another great experience buying from the Lazy Ox. Last year was my first when I found them through a search for a particular tomato plant. Well priced and packaged healthy plants of a type that you won't find at the local garden center. Glad I found them!

This was my first order from the Lazy Ox folks.
1. Ordered 25 plants.
2. Received all 25 ordered plants.
3. Plants arrived one day ahead of schedule.
4. Plants received in excellent condition at least partly due to an excellent packing plan.
5. I've been hardening off the plants for five days and will begin planting tomorrow.
Knowledgeable and courteous people.....heck even their 'How to Care for Your Plants' sheet was useful.....good plants.
A rare find these days and I'm pleased to be able to say these nice things about LZ Ox.
Ordered Jaune Flamme tomatoes, Isis Candy tomatoes, and fish peppers from Lazy Ox Farm through localharvest.com. The plants were beautiful and healthy and very well packaged. Customer service was excellent - the post office lost half my order, and they very promptly shipped replacements, which were just as beautiful as the half the post office didn't lose.
Can't say enough good things about them. Will definitely order from them again.
This was my 1st time ordering plants through the mail. I ordered two cherry gold and two legend tomato plants in March. They came as planned in May, carefully packed and healthy, along with a bonus plum tomato plant. As they are starting to ripen here in August, these plants have exceeded my expectations. Most have grown taller than the fence and are producing great tasting tomatoes with a larger crop than any of my friends' plants despite the partially shaded plot and my novice gardening skills.

Received very healthy, well-packed plants, delivered on time. They have a great selection, including some unusual varieties, and their customer service is excellent. Will definitely order again.On May 22nd, 2009, magnaastra added the following:
Placed a subsequent order, which also arrived in excellent condition. I've also ordered from several (!) other vendors, trying to decide who's going to get my business in the years to come. Lazy Ox is at the top of my list...
