About two months ago, I ordered a combo of cuttings and plants - 8 plants and 5 cuttings. They arrived right on time, as the company owner had told me when he would ship. They were packed very well. Every single plant is thriving, even though our WA PNW climate is very different from their start in FL. The cuttings took off fast , grown inside in my garden window in rooting medium, despite a kitten playing with them at first. Thanks very much, Valley Grow! Will be back.

I ordered a rooted cutting of Brugmansia "Ecuador Pink" from the online website. They don't take credit cards, but will take payment by personal check, money order or PayPal. I sent a personal check and recieved my package less than a week later via priority mail. The packing was excellent. The cutting was far superior to most plants I have ordered by mail. Very robust, healthy and well-rooted. I would definitely order from this company again.

I had some concerns about ordering at this time of year so I sent Earl an email asking about it. He assured me that they would make it fine and also sent me a wealth of information about Brugs and how to care for them. My Brugs arrived yesterday, the packaging was great, the Brugs were in awesome condition, and the shipping super fast. I will buy from him again, no question about it.

Ordered plants on Friday, shipped on Saturday and received them today (Monday). Fantastic packing and they look as fresh as if I had traveled to Florida and picked them out myself. I ordered two starter plants and if I do everything right I will order from Earl again.
i received healthy starter plants, and of course i messed it up for them. before they were goners, i made amends and took care of my babies - - - just water and fertilizer, of course. what a complete turn-around. they must be from strong stock to begin with!
transaction was a breeze. plants were meticulously packed.
thank you, earl.

2 of 3 brugs i ordered bloomed within 9 months. the third one is a herrenhauser garten, so i'm giving it more time. it's cool to wait on that one.
since brug no. 2 just bloomed yesterday, i found out it's not "enchanted double white"! i e-mailed earl, and NOT EVEN 24 HOURS LATER, he e-mailed back stating he'll mail me the correct plant.
I first found about this place from eBay. I ordered a couple of brugs and they arrived very healthy. I have ordered four more times from Earl and have had excellent results, even from cuttings. This guy knows what he's doing and it shows.
My sister and I visited Earl's place today hunting brugs. WOW! This man has more than I've ever seen in one place before. We each bought 14 brugs and Earl made sure that each was labeled and that each was in good condition. An incredible experience. When we left we inadvertently left some of our plants....he caught up with us on the highway to give our plants to us! You should visit, but call first. The plants are awesome and Earl is very nice.

I love my plant from this company. My 1 gal brugmansia was in excellent condition. It has been 1 month since I received my order and my plant looks great and is almost ready to bloom. I wish I would have ordered more.
All I can say is "WOW"... anyone who likes Brugmansia's has to check this site. Earl has over 100,000 plants in various stages of growth and his selection of Brugs is stunning. Great prices and shipping policies. I went nuts ordering from them. Cannot wait to actually visit the nursery so I can see the entire collection in full bloom.
I ordered three pampas grass, four small gardenias, a camellia, datura seeds, and a brugmansia from Earl. They were shipped quickly and well-packaged, surviving postal mishandling and damage of the box and being mistakenly left on my front porch in freezing temperatures for an entire day. The gardenias and camellia are particularly strong and healthy young plants, and I am very anxious to get them all potted and watch them grow!
