I forgot to mention that my plants arrived within a week or ordering! The service is Excellent AAA+++ any way you look at it.

I ordered 15 hoyas and I AUTHORIZED Fred to please send me any additional Hoyas I missed and that I'd gladly pay the difference. They were out of stock 2 of what I ordered but he filled my order with 2 more plus, as I authorized, he also included 5 more Hoyas to my order of new varieties he received. The prices were no more than what I was already paying and he let me know as soon as he filled my order. No surprises and he honored my request. 20 HOYAS LATER - they are all thriving exceptionally well. They arrived within the week - PACKAGING was AWESOME!!! They all arrived so healthy and I love that Fred sends such well grown plants. They are not a barely rooted sprig. THANK YOU FRED - I'm checking your website for other plants too now :-)

I love this place! Luckily, I live close enough to actually visit the shop/greenhouses often! I have also ordered from their website. The prices are great, the plants are always healthy, and (in store) the customer service is always excellent. Pepper's has your every day favorites and a huge selection of unique and rare plants. If you're ever in the area of southern Delaware, I definitely recommend setting aside an hour or two to visit Pepper's!!

I just received 5 Salvia plants from this vendor. Although the shipping charge is rather expensive, the plants are green and healthy, were well packaged, and arrived promptly. Green Thumbs Up to Pepper's Greenhouse.

Hoping to do business here in the future, however so far the customer service appears to be lacking. I placed my test order a couple of months ago for three Spigelia Marilandica (Indian Pinks or Maryland Pinks).

This morning, 12 hours after receiving my plants i notice the stem of the Lollipop plant is full of Brown scale!

As you can see his rebuttal is angry, rude, and sarcastic as in his other negative reviews. I agree in most cases calling the seller first is the route to take, but in this case whether i had given him chance to respond or not it would not have changed the fact that there were scale on my plant! I would still have said that in my review. The measure of a good company is how they deal with problems. Look at his response, need i say more?

I will add that his receipt states clearly "ALL SALES FINAL, NO RETURNS/REFUNDS"

I usually do not post rebuttals to comments left here on Dave's. During the past 12 months, I have shipped over 3200 orders to happy customers. It has been a great pleasure. As you can see of those customers, only 16 have posted comments here on Dave's and (1) of those was Negative, this one. Therefore, I do not consider posting on the Gardenwatchdog to be relevent to the true character and operation of a particular business. I receive many emails directly to me expressing appreciation for the variety of plants we offer, along with reasonable prices. Below is a copy of the email I have just sent to Fiona5.

I received my first order from Pepper's Greenhouse a week ago. I ordered a sweetheart Hoya and a variegated wax heart hoya. I was impressed with the size of the plants, they also arrived in good conditions. I will use them again.

I recently ordered 3 Queen's Wreath plants from this company along with several other plants. ( it is hard to only order what you are looking for when so many great plants are available). I received large well packaged healthy plants . This is a great place to purchase hard to find tropical and subtropical plants.

Great experience! I purchased around 12 different plants of different types and all arrived nice sized, healthy and fast! They were also packaged quite well and prices were reasonable. I will definitely order from them again. Thanks Fred!

I recently ordered two Allamanda Cathartica "Hendersonii" plant's from Pepper's Greenhouse. The plants arrived in great shape and were nice and healthy. I immediately repotted them and since then they have doubled in size. This is my first mail order with this company and I did so after checking the comments left by other members of Davesgarden. I am absolutely pleased with the entire experience (cost, shipping and customer service). Thanks Fred for outstanding service.

Ordered from them this spring and was happy. A couple of the plants were a bit small but for the price, a very nice value. I will order from them again.

Found a hard to find forsythia here. The company was upfront about a 10 day delay to ship due to high volume, but taking that into account, they arrived right on time. The plants arrived looking great, very well packaged. Very good price as well.

A great selection of hard-to-find plants at reasonable prices. I just received my first order and very happy with nice size and healthy geraniums. Besides I'm thankful for the assistance I received with questions and payment errors I made. It does take a little longer to receive the order but well worth waiting. Will definitely order again when some of the plants I wanted are back in stock.

Had been looking for some specialty salvias and found them at this site. They arrived really healthy and well rooted. Can't wait to see what they look like in the sun......

I am very pleased with my first order. The 4 begonia plants I received were large, healthy, and with nice root systems. Communication, packing, and shipping were excellent - a very positive experience.

I recently ordered 4 different Hoyas from this company: a Hoya curtisii, a H. publicalyx 'Pink Silver', an H. australis, and an H. nummularioides, all in 4 inch pots. My only complaint? That they do not use correct names on the website. The plants I received were well packed, wrapped in newspaper and bubble wrap to keep the soil from spilling. The nummularioides is HUGE, each branch being over a foot long, with very little leaf loss. The curtisii is a bit on the small side, but for the price paid, it's quite a deal. I found a bit of the hard, brown scale on the publicalyx, but it wasn't anything too complicated to deal with, and I easily squished what was there. I don't expect any issues. Australis leaves are beautiful and unmarred, and I am pleased with this purchase.

Very happy with this purchase. Excellent communication, excellent packing. Plants are huge, much bigger than the usual mail order plants. Great prices, too. I will definitely do business with Fred again!

Update: Some funny news. Cancelled my order with Fred the Hulk and ordered the same plant from another online seller: Studley Flower Garden. I bought the plants for 2pennies more but there is no packaging ($2) fee. Get this, Studley Flower is located in New Hampshire (North of Deleware and colder) and the guy ships me the plants NOT FROZEN AND NOT DEAD. I ordered it Monday and got it Thursday. The moral of the story: there are better more professional sellers out there. I am glad to share this information with my fellow plant buyers. Best regards

I have been a customer of Logee's for many years and have had mixed luck with the plants (I guess I expect a certain attrition rate). When I saw that Pepper's Accent offered many of the same plants in larger pots and for less money, I decided to give them a shot! Well, I received my package today ~ very fast shipping! ~ and when I unpacked the plants I was a very happy camper. Great care was taken to ensure the plants were delivered in the best condition, not necessarily an easy task given our unforgiving heat. As I unwrapped each one, I was pleasantly surprised with the size of the plants. They were in no way "skimpy". I will definitely buy from them again!

Everything arrived as expected. No issues with the plants. Shipping was reasonably fast considering I live across the country (pacific coast). The plants condition was excellent, considering they sat at the post office for the weekend in my case.

Just received my order of 6 Arizona Sun Gaillardia today. There's a total of one and a half dying flower and ALL of them had yellow, wilting leaves. Not one of them had healthy leaves on half the plant. I am hesitant to even spend the time to plant them in ground. The way is was packaged and shipped couldn't have helped. They came in wrapped in USPS packaging tape, all placed sideways in a standard USPS box - two layers separated by a cardboad. Had it not been the one and a half wilting flowers, I would have thought I received 6 pots of 4" weeds! Definitely a lesson learned.

I have ordered from Accents off and on for several years and have always been happy. My most recent order arrived quickly, and although the plants were smaller than I've gotten from them in the past, they are healthy and very well packed, as usual.
However, a few months ago I ordered a Columnea Fujiyama from Accents. Since I hadn't had one before, I assumed it was the correct plant. A couple of months after I got it, it bloomed one bloom. I saw that it looked nothing like a Fujiyama bloom, so I posted it here, and was told it was indeed not a columnea, but some sort of x-Codonanthe. I looked at the link the person provided, and sure enough, they are correct. I was sent the wrong plant. Well, I like the plant, but did nevertheless want to let Accents know of their mistake, so I emailed them. I was very cordial, and told them that even though it was the wrong plant, I would still do business with them.
Well, I never even got a reply to my email. I had expected them to offer to send me the correct plant, or at LEAST to apologize for their mistake. I didn't get either one. Never even an acknowledgement of my email. I was very disappointed. I realize mistakes can be made, but I feel this was very bad business for them not to even bother to reply. Even though they have very reasonable prices and healthy plants, I'm not sure if I'll order from them again.

As of June 22 2010- still looks like a regular zebrina. No color change or anything.

Have ordered twice from the company. First time the plants were fairly well sized. I did have a Indian Pink that that was very small and didn't survive the winter though. The second time the plants were very large and healthy. And a hardy orchid even arrived blooming. Only wish they would let you know ahead of time if an item is not available instead of when your package arrives.

i ordered 4 congo cockatoo. they were sold in 4 inch pots. the order with shipping and handling was extremely expensive, however, i had someone who very much wanted them in their summer container garden so i thought i would give this company a chance since i lost ALL of mine over this cold winter.

Took a chance & ordered several mazus reptans late last fall - the lady I spoke to there said she couldn't guarantee they'd overwinter given the late start but they would probably be ok. The plants arrived in good shape & I am very pleased with their continued growth thus far this spring - all made it through a cold winter, most have doubled in size & all of them are covered with the prettiest purple flowers. The shipping charge wasn't cheap but I am very happy with the quality of my plants.
