After a negative online experience with 'The Hosta Farm' and their hydrangeas, I decided to try some other online hydrangea sources, including 'Proven Winners' online source for hydrangea. When running a search for 'Proven Winners' hydrangea Home Depot also showed up.
Truthfully...Home Depot is the model for all honest online plant sellers! WOW!!! Yes, 'Proven Winners' online service and plants were also good, but not even in the same 'Ball Park' .. so to speak.
Plants at Home Depot were cheaper .. shipping is either cheaper or FREE. I've used their Free Delivery 3 times so far - and the plants come with a return label in the box, though you can print out your plant order email and just return the plant to a nearby Home Depot. However, the plants are so healthy and beautiful that returning any of them never entered my mind.
Basically, their easy return method/s - no questions asked - is apparently their way of showing the buyer that their plants are going to be superior plants that few buyers will want to return.
Home Depot for mail order flower bulbs? Who would have guessed! I found Asiatic lily "Crimson Pixie" at Homedepot.com. The price was right and I ordered two bags of 6 bulbs each. They arrived in only a few days - shipped from Meridian, Mississippi. The sizes varied from small to medium, and some were already sprouting, but I was glad to have them because the rabbits had eaten away at my red border lilies leaving gaps in the border. Planted them the same day among my already blooming red border lilies.
