Ordered 25 pink futurity canna plants from touch of nature last fall. They arrived in the spring & I planted them. The ones that came up had green leaves but I felt I would wait & see when they bloomed. They are now blooming & its green leaves & red blooms not the burgundy leaves & pink blooms of pink furturity. Would rather they had told me they didn't have the rt. plant so that I could have chosen something else that would have fit into my garden instead of sticking out like a sore thumb.Also out of 25 bulbs about 8 of them came up. The rest failed to grow. Thats less than 50 % . Since there are other cannas doing fine in the same soil & growing conditions you can't say its the growing conditions.

I was told since they are now growing & blooming, that the correct plants would be shipped with their tops cut off. The roots that have arrived have a questionable green leafy color to what leaves they do have. He has tried to make it right & paid the postage twice. One has to give them an A for effort.
Mr. bert is really nice, good price and "friendly" customer service. I can't wait for my order arrives.

receive my order on schedule(06 Apr). Daylilies are big division and healthy. good deal for that discount price. but the hosta plants are 1 eye division , not very impressive, guess that's what I pay for. ($5 for one) and also short of one plant. It says " not all patriot survived the winter" in the invoice. so they deduct the total amount. But they are still selling it in the website. it doesn't look like they are out of stock, huh??

The saffron crocus bulbs I ordered came exactly when promised. They are now in the ground and I am hoping for the best in a short while ! I'll add more after they bloom.

Fall came and went as did winter and now it is mid-spring. Zero blooms on 100 bulbs. I planted too early, too late, too deep or not deep enough with too much or not enough water. To strike out in such a big way was very disappointing. I am willing to take some percent of blame but I planted the bulbs as instructed when I got them and then waited and waited. Plenty of leaves so maybe next fall will be the show. I'll reevaluate my ratings then but for now I have to downgrade from positive to neutral.
