I just ordered 6 orange climbing roses and some daylilies from this company. I was very upset AFTER ordering to find this company has a "score" of 6 out of 100!!! Yikes! Please redeem yourselves and when it's time (I'm patient) ship me some good, healthy stuff. AND NO SUBSTITUTIONS. I just do orange and purple in my gardens, so anything else will be promptly shipped back.
We, too, have ordered from Plantron affiliated nurseries. We ordered from Interstate one year in March. We still had not received shipment by June and wrote to cancel. When we were on vacation in July, a shipment came from Richard Owens. I refused it, because we had not ordered from Richard Owens. We finally realized what had happened when I tried to call about the cancellation and discovered that the phone number and address was the same for both. This year, I was tempted to order from Kelly Nurseries, but one of the "testimonials" sounded familiar. I went to the internet and found that I have not been the only one taken by this company. Kelly had a Minnesota address on the catalog rather than Illinois so I thought it was different. Boy am I glad I checked.
Inter-State Nursery does have a website:http://www.directgardening.com/index.aspThe reason why no one could find it before is that they use a different name online. I guess there is too much bad relations with the other name. I ordered from them before I knew, so we will see how it goes.
