I ordered a number of plants from Pepper's. The plants were
a nice size, for the price. Well packed and healthy! I just placed another order!

This is my second order with them.

I placed a small order in May. Fred contacted to let me know that a few of the plants were small and would be a few weeks. I actually changed my m ind a few weeks in and asked if I could get another item (Fatsia japonica "Camouflauge" after seeing a friends plant from them). Fred promptly replied and let me know what the additional cost would be. This was on Friday, order went out Monday afternoon with delivery confirmation emailed to me. Plant arrived perfectly packed, and I could not have hand picked a nicer plant myself, nice 2 gallon pot.

I have ordered last year several tropicals and they were well rooted and packed. Very pleased with the communication from Fred. Would defintely order again. Thank you!

I found this company on the web when I was looking for a particular plant. I was drawn in by the low prices on some things that I had been wanting and I did put in the order. I did receive a confirmation right away and the next day I got a Click-N-Ship® shipping notification telling me that my plants would be shipped on the 3rd and they arrived today which is the 5th. The pots were all 4x4 not 3x3 or 2x2. I really liked the packing method also none of the dirt was spilled or missing from the pots. Nice plants and I do recommend them to everyone and I will do more business with this company.

I received another beautiful order from Pepper's. This time I got house plants and boy are they big and healthy. This company is easy to work with and very reasonable on their prices. I love this company and hope to do more business with them. Thank you Pepper's!!

I live in southern Delaware, and my experience with Accents (Pepper's) is therefore from visiting the nursery rather than mail-ordering from them. I moved here 2 years ago and joined the Delaware Master Gardeners (was an MG in my former location). Pepper's was the first recommendation many of my fellow MGs gave for a local nursery. It surprised me to see on this site that they have a mail order business. It's a family company and the nursery is huge, with a really extensive variety of plant offerings and garden-related products and a well-organized and well-signed layout. It is worth a shopping trip if you live within a reasonable drive. The plants are very healthy in my experience, the prices are generally very good, and in spring the multi-packs of annual flower and vegetable seedlings are particularly inexpensive.

This is my 2nd experience in dealing with this company and I would rate both of them a 5 STAR ***** rating.I didn't rate the first dealing as I could not figure how to do it out as I am not all that PC Savvy. So now I got help and I can do it. The shipping was lightning quick and pkging was the ultimate.His communication was not so good first time around but it was a fast in all nurseries it seemed so I can not fault him there but the size and qualty of plants are really qualifyingly excellent.I have told people onnline about him and the things he has and I keep checking on items I want from there.
Thanks Fred and KEEP UP THE GREAT/GOOD WORK

I've been ordering from Accents about three years now and never been dissatisfied with any of plants received.
They have great varieties, so many to choose from..Plants arrive in perfect condition and most are large. Shipping is quick..Toni Tippin


On May 21st, 2006, Toni05 added the following:

Placed another order with Accents and again was more than satisfied. Plants arrived quick and in excellent condition..And prices are unbelieveable..
On August 31st, 2006, Toni05 added the following:

Received 2 plants, the variegated Purple Passion and a Variegated String of hearts..Both came in good condition..I was expecting the STring of Hearts to be a bit larger, but othwerwise the plants are in excellent condition..
On June 14th, 2007, Toni05 added the following:

Received 2 Ruby Red Peperomias and a Maid of Orleans..
Pep's are between 9-10" tall, and MOO stands at least 9". MOO has several buds and flowers.
Plants are well-packaged..Pots are first taped, then wrapped with newspaper. Each plant set snuggly inside a mailing box.
Accents, Keep up the great work..
On July 28th, 2007, Toni05 added the following:

Ordered 3 more plants from Accents, Watermelon Begonia, 10", Temple Bells, 11", Cissus discolor, 9" and once again they arrived in sensational condition..
They arrived even faster than usual, and well-packaged. Foliage was in tact, in other words, no broken stems or leaves..Everytime I visit Accent's website, I see another plant I want..And prices are exceptional, especially for the sizes. Glad to do business w/this nursery...

On September 26th, 2007, Toni05 added the following:

Received my last plant order before winter, today.
Once again, after opening the package from Accents/Peppers, I was more than pleased.
5 healthy, good-sized plants..
Plants arrived promplty and well-packaged.
For those of you who shop at Accents, or browse their Online Catalog, read description carefully, even if it means opening individually.
Accents/Peppers uses common names some may be unfamilar with. So check the botanical name by clicking on each plant.
For instance, while browsing through their catalog, I found a plant labeled Tapistry Plant..I had no idea what it was so I clicked on the plant, and found out it was a Begonia discolor. I bought that guy fast. LOL.
Shipping was fast, too. Thanks Accents..Toni

On October 24th, 2007, Toni05 added the following:

I know I said I wouldn't chance ordering due to the weather, but decided to browse Accent/Peppers site, (one more time) and ended up pressing the Buy Now button 7 times..LOL
Included in my order were 2 hoyas,..they are fantastic and much larger than I expected.
My order arrived promptly..I admit, sometimes there is a short delay, but considering the huge orders Accent's ships during growing season, it's understandable. IMO, that goes to show the number of people who enjoy Accent's plants and supplies, and like myself, place multiple orders.
I had a question for Mr. Pepper regarding a plant so I sent him an email. He replied the following day.
I also like the fact Accent sells those 'hard to locate plants,' at reasonable prices. Compare prices to other nurseries and you'll see what I mean.
On April 1st, 2008, Toni05 added the following:

Placed my first order of the year now that temps warmed up...Since Accents/Peppers updated their site, they added a good number of new varieties; many rare, hard to find specimens..
Accents is one place that ships healthy, good-sized, reasonaly priced plants..
I had a few questions, emailed Fred, in which he replied the same day..Even though spring is officially here, a time nurseries are busy, (taking orders, packaging, and shipping) he responded promptly.
Plants I ordered are Dragon Fruit, Gold Strawberry Begonia, Tri-colored Strawberry Begonia, Cinnamon Plant, Flowering Jade, Starfish Pagoda, Spurge, and Medinilla..Each plant is good side, well-rooted, healthy leaves.
Packaging was carefully done..Shipping fast.
Eventually, I'd like to order one of each plant...don't have the option, due to money and space..LOL.
In my opinion, Accents is one of the best online nurseries..of course there's others, (I buy from a few nurseries) but from 1-10, 10 being the best, I give them !0+..
Keep up the good work, Thanks, Toni


On April 21st, 2008, Toni05 added the following:

Received 4 new plants today. Again, I'm astonished how beautiful they are..all are good sized: Variegated Fatshedera, Variegated German Ivy, Red Hot Hibiscus (tripple gorgeous) and Pseuderanthemum.
Plants arrived quick, not long after ordering, well-packaged.
I also receive a shipping notice, via email, the day plants are shipped.
Accents/Peppers has a great selection of plants, at reasonable prices.
I enjoy looking over their website, ogling plants, (wish I had one of each, lol) Toni



On August 18th, 2008, Toni05 added the following:

Received 5 gorgeous Episcias today. All are in excellent condition as usual. Plants are full-sized, each bearing 20, plus leaves. After inspection, there is no sign of insects.
Each plant is taped and wrapped with newspaper, each pot has an attached label...I prefer pre-attached labels to inserted tags that can fall out of pot.
Plants arrived 5 days after order was placed. That was fast... I would definately recommend Accents/Peppers to friends and those who enjoy plants..Toni

Plants are compact, large, and well-established.
Labels naming plants are taped to pot..both botanical and common names.
Well-packaged. Plants arrived quick, not long after ordering.

On November 3rd, 2008, Toni05 added the following:

Got 4 more plants from Accents, 'probably' the last order until next spring. It's going to be tough waiting out a long winter. Accents has so many wonderful varieties to choose.

This order consisted of: Trunk of Elephant, Jelly Bean, Euphorbia Round Stem and Velvet or Elephant Ear.
All are good sizes, and well-packaged..like usual
Shipping arrived promptly.
I love Accents/Peppers..Toni


On March 27th, 2009, Toni05 added the following:

Received seven beautiful Geraniums. Different varieties, scented, fancy leaf and rare specimens. Geraniums are huge! Many have buds and/or flowers.

Each plant was individually wrapped, and well-packaged.
Shipping was sent according to temperature which was quite cold until the last week. Perfect timing upon arrival. Fred must have ESP. lol. Toni

On June 28th, 2009, Toni05 added the following:

In April, I ordered, Variegated String of Buttons, Variegated Lipstick, Emerald Ripple, Pink Emerald Ripple, Peperomia 'prayer,' Variegated Purple Passion, Maid of Orleans, Variegated Columnea, and Variegated German Ivy. All plants arrived in perfect health, pest-free, and good-size. Shipping was prompt.
Accents/Peppers sends the healthiest of plants, well-packed, and ships ASAP. Toni
On June 28th, 2009, Toni05 added the following:

In May I ordered a Tree Ivy, Variegated Purple Heart, Variegated Jacobs Ladder, and Zig-Zag Jacobs Ladder.
All plants are healthy and good-sized. Plants are packaged securely so plants don't slip out of their containers. Toni
On June 28th, 2009, Toni05 added the following:

My June order consisted of, Begonia 'Little Brother', Wandering Jew, 'quadricolor', Senecio 'String of Bananas,' Rhipsalis, Seaweed/Snowdrop Cactus, Gynura 'Purple Velvet,' Wandering Jew 'rainbow', and Smithiantha 'Temple Bells.'
I also ordered a few Panterra Bowls, which work great for plants that need shallow containers. They also make great dish gardens. I planted Adeniums 'Desert Roses,' in my bowls. They're doing great.

Shipping was super-fast, and plants well-packed. All arrived healthy and vibrant.
Fred answers emails quickly. If something needs resolving, he takes care of it, ASAP. Toni
On August 23rd, 2009, Toni05 added the following:

Received 8-21-09: Pomegranate, Xerosicyos, and six Hoyas..All healthy, large in size, vibrantly colored: both greens and variegated.
Each plant individually taped around newspaper. Box has two sections, upper and lower compartments with enough room plants are snuggly, yet roomy. Newspaper prevents stems/leaves from breaking.
Accents has numerous plants from tropicals to native perrenials. I love Peppers/Accents..

On September 22nd, 2009, Toni05 added the following:

Received my order today, 9-21-09, probably the last of the year, now that winter's coming.
Plants are all healthy, nice size and well-packed. Shipping was super-fast. Toni
On March 26th, 2010, Toni05 added the following:

Ordered 18 plants March 20, 2010..the shipment arrived today, March 26, 2010. Considering the 20th fell on a Saturday and the order was placed at night, I deem shipping very quick.

One plant was out of stock, my error..I was notified promptly by email. Plant and shipping chargrs were immediately refunded.

Plants arrived well-packed. It actually took some work removiing cardboard and tape..But I prefer safely tucked plants than those tossed in a box, swaying around during shiping. Plants are stable, no broken stems.

Considering the time of year, plants are good-sized, healthy, and insect-free, 'I always inspect new plants,' despite nursery or big box stores.' Nary a bug.

Accents has great varieties. Some worth a lot more than what they charge.
This order consisted of various succulents, Begonias, and other tropicals. Too many to name. lol. I love them!!

I read feedback and am honestly shocked. It's not my place to debate whether or not someone had a problem, but in all the years I've shopped at Accents, I hadn't any issues..No complaints.
One person mentioned centipedes. I've never found any insects in Accent plants, but I have with other nurseries..The other day I ordered a plant on Ebay...I removed the plant, placed in the sink..Before walking away, I noticed movement..Out came a 4"+ centipede. I fear insects, and believe me, I panicked..I'm even afraid to kill them, especially monster size..My point is, when we order plants from different states, it's not unusual for a spider, etc to crawl in the soil. I do a LOT of ordering, so believe me, I'm aware.
Last year, a King Moth 'pod' hitch-hiked from Fl. King Moths are not indigenous to IL. I've also spotted lizards. One man claimed he received a scorpian..lol

Pepper's plants are reasonably priced..especially for the sizes. Compare to other nurseries. If you shop for plants as often as I do, you'll understand where I'm coming from.

BTW, I am not affiliated with Peppers in any way, shape or form. What I am is a Satisfied Customer who is very happy I found such a wonderful place to purchase plants. Have a great day..Toni


On March 26th, 2010, Toni05 added the following:

For the record...I wanted to add, I'm not saying Accents/Peppers is the only nursery I order from, or the only nursery that sells beautiful, healthy plants..On the contrary. There are a good number of nurseries that sell lovely greens, BUT, there are a good number of nurseries that ship such horrid plants, if it wasn't for the tag, they'd be unidentifyable. Thank you..
On May 2nd, 2010, Toni05 added the following:

Received seven more plants on April 23, 2010. Begonias, Hoyas, Euphorbias, and a beautiful Pomegranate.

Plants are potted in 4" containers, each pot securely wrapped and taped, and arrived less than a week after order. Thanks again. Toni

PS. Sorry for feedback delay. A great friend passed away.

On August 29th, 2010, Toni05 added the following:

While browsing through Accent's/Peppers website, I discovered new plants have been added. Of course, being a plant lover, and always thrilled with Accent's plants, I placed another order.

My order consisted of: Mini Watermelon Peperomia, Fish Tail Hoya, Sweetheart Hoya, Autograph Tree, Chandelier MOT's, Gerald's Spurge, 'blooming, peach flowers. 'Plant is huge,' Copper Spoon, Corderoy Jade, Spearhead Senecio, Kalanchoe 'Fang,' A beautiful, Variegated E. Crown of Thorns, and Pineapple Guava. All are lovely, some quite large, the remaining, more than average size.
Most nurseries would charge 20.00 or more for some of the above, mentioned plants.

Plants were well-packaged. No soil spills, period. Order arrived less than a week. I'm having surgery Tues morning, so thankful this large order arrived when it did. Thanks so much, Accent's. Toni
On September 15th, 2010, Toni05 added the following:

Ordered 3 more plants from Accents..Variegated Stephonotis, 'absolutely stunning,' Senecio 'Rubber Ivy,' 'quite colorful, and a Triangle Fig..'little figs growing.'

Each plant is potted in 4" containers, which are individually wrapped for shipping. My order arrived, Super Fast.

Another positive: Each container has attached sheet of paper, with type-written print. Eg. 'Botanical and Common name,' and 'care instructions.'

I find names and care sheets mandatory. Considering I order from 'X' amount of nurseries, most do not include name of plants, let alone information, or when they do, the nursery inserts a hand-written, pen/pencil tag in soil. Eventually ink/lead washes off or smears. Toni

On April 10th, 2011, Toni05 added the following:

Placed first order in April, 2011 from Accents.

Got some true beautys.
Hoya 'Imperalis,' 'Carnosa' Var, amd 'Hindu Rope' Variegata.
Anthurium 'Tweed,' a rare Anthurium.
Peperomias: 'Watermelon,' 'Belly Button' and 'Pink Ripple.'
Stephanotis Variegata, and Geranium 'Wilhelm.'

Each plant comes in a 4" pot, and well-packaged.

Because of cold temperatures, Fred held my shipment so plants wouldn't freeze on their long journey.

He also kept me updated. Thanks, Toni





On April 22nd, 2011, Toni05 added the following:

I searched everywhere for Impatien Morsei: No luck.
A friend gave me the heads up Accents had these beautys; I bought one on the spot..

Like every other plant ordered from Accents, the Impatiens arrived a few days after ordering, even though it's their busy time of the year.
Plant was taped and packaged securely.

Foliage is compact, even has a bud. Vividly colored..no mars or splits.

Accents For Home and Garden is definately my favorite online plant store. Toni



On June 3rd, 2011, Toni05 added the following:

Some time ago I ordered two plants from Accents: Variegaetd Ardisia and Variegated Jasmine..
I was so excited when I found them, I forgot to check if they were in stock. After the order was placed, I paid.

Fred emailed me explaining both plants were out of stock, and gave me an option of a refund or wait until they were available.
I decided to wait.

Monday, "Memorial Day,' Fred phoned with good news. The plants were ready to go, he'd send them the following day.

Plants arrived yesterday, June 2, 2011, three days after his call. Super-Fast shipping, especially since Monday was a holiday!
Plants were wrapped carefully.

Each are good size, variegation very pronounced, and insect-free.
I respect the fact he didn't ship plants without or with tiny roots..Or seedling size. .

Thanks Fred. You made my day. I've been searching for Variegated Ardisia a long time. You have numerous plants on your site, so, sometimes I miss seeing a particular variety.

There were times I had to wait a little longer for an order..especially around holidays and spring planting season.
I've read feedback here on GWD where orders were placed in spring..A very busy time for nursery-people.
If a shipment didn't arrive 6 days after their order, they panicked. Some left negative feedback before talking to Fred and/or other nursery-sellers.

When hundreds if not thousands of orders come in, our plants are highly unlikely to arrive a few days after the initial order.
It's common sense. There are times a plant might not be in stock. Or, the plant is on back-order, or they're just plain busy.
Nursery-people are not infallible. They make mistakes. And so do we. Mistakes will be corrected if a non-hostile email is sent to the seller, instead of accusations, threats and cruel words.

So, please be patient when ordering from any mail-order nursery.

BTW, I am in no way affiliated with Accents or any other nursery.

I might be wrong, but I took the liberty of writing this because It upsets me when I see Negative feedback on GWD. I check the date an order was placed, sometimes less than a week,' and 'X' person is complaining their order didn't arrive, then automatically leaves Negative feedback.

Me-i-tis! Happy growing, Toni

PS: There are some sellers who deserve Negative feedback. When we browse GWD, and a seller has 99% Negative feedback,, the practical thing to do is avoid the nursery. I'm sure many here know which nurseries I'm referring to. Sorry for ranting..

Placed last order, due to freezing temps, autumn 2011.

Even though it's nearing winter, Pepper's plants are good sized.

My order consisted of:

Peperomia, Pink Ripple..Very large
Starfish Pagoda, variegata..Very large
Agalia odorata..large, and budding
Philodendrom squamiferum. Very large, striking colors/texture.

Natal Plum variegta. The last one for now. Fred was honest enough to send an email about the NP's size. A little on the small side. He asked if I wanted a different plant.
I opted to go for it. He also threw in a Variegated Haworthia, which was a pleasant surprise, considering I love variegaated plants.
Even though the NP is small, it's very healthy and brightly colored. So beautiful.

Haworthia also has vivid colors. Green and white/cream. So nice.

Plants were carefully wrapped and boxed. Order arrived less than a week after order.

Thanks Fred..You have the greatest, largest and healthiest plants around. Pepper's is definately one of the top 10 best nurseries in US.

I already chose plants for 2012. lol. Toni

Pepper's 'first' order of the year...4/2012.

Thumbergera..Natal Plum, Crassula Schmidtii, Brunsfelsia, 'packed with flowers,' Starfish Pagoda, and a super-large Kalanchoe 'Magic Bells.'

Natal Plum is on the small side, but Fred was honest enough to notify me regarding size before payment went through.

All plants are healthy, insect-free, good-sized specimens.
Because of my location, zone 5, the above plants are grown as house plants, 'summered outdoors.'

This year, I placed an order for, 'outdoor garden' plants. A first.
Honestly, I didn't know what to expect. Because I've never had problems with Peppers tropicals/succulents, I decided to give garden plants a try.

What a shock when I saw the size of bulbs!

4 Crown Imperial, Fritillarias..root systems are humgongous, out of dormancy, new upper growth.
1 Allium..Fully rooted, out of dormancy, upper growth.
Philadelphus x Lemoenei, 'Innocence,' common name, Mock Orange, variegated.
Mock Orange arrived in a 4" pot, fully rooted, variegated foliage.

I'll be ordering more perennials/bulbs, not to mention house plants, lol, in the future.

Each plant/bulb was carefully wrapped. Shipping, super-fast.

Thanks Pepper's. Toni

Although spring is a busy time of year, my new order arrived fast.

Fred emailed, explained he was busy, my order might take some time.
I replied, 'there's no rush.' Plants will get here when they do. All are house plants, so there's no hurry.
I was shocked when the order arrived four days later.

My order consisted of: Mini Wandering Jew, Chain Plant, Stripped Inch Plant, variegated Stephanotis, Kalanchoe 'Elephant Ear,' variegated Jewel of Opar, C. 'Flaming Jade,' and Plectranthus 'Ernestii.'

Fred through in a few cuttings, to boot.

Although each plant is beautiful, my favorites are the variegated Jewel of Opar and P. 'Ernestii.'
I never had either plant so thought I'd give them a try.

Variegation on variegated plants are vivid, very pronounced. I love them!!

As usual, plants were packaged securely.

Customer Service, 'Fred,' is a wonderful man. He's firm, but out to please customers.
Great communication.

Fred, thanks for sending such beautiful plants, Toni


On July 25th, 2012, Toni05 added the following:

Ordered and received 5 healthy, good-sized plants.
Fred added a bonus plant.

2 Speckled Wandering Jews... Beautiful, spotted foliage. Very unique.

1 Tree Oxalis. Tallest stem stands 9". Foliage filled.

1 Euphorbia Platyclada. Rare, strange-looking succulent.

1 Kalanchoe Figuereidoi. Large, colorful foliage. Very nice.

Bonus.. Orostachys. Succulent foliage, good-size plant. White flowers. Very unusual.

Plants arrived in secure packaging...Super-Fast shipping.

Thanks Fred.


On November 16th, 2012, Toni05 added the following:

Probably last order of the year since temps are cold..although Fred added a heat-pack to prevent plants from being chilled. No frost-bitten foliage.

Plants are healthy, pest-free and good size. Variegated plants are vividly colored.

My List:

Beloperone...Shrimp, varegated
Plumbago... Blue flowers
Crassula Schmidii...Flowering Jade
Pelleromia... Emerald Green
Tecoma...Cape Honeysuckle
Brunsfelsia...Lady of the Night
Pedilanthus..marbled..
Excoecaria...Chinese Croton
Jasmine, Grand Duke of Tuscay
Osmoxlon...Maiges Bush.

All arrived in excellent condition. Plants, securely packaged..Shipping super fast...

Thank You, Fred.

A 5* Nursery..rare plants, too.

Check Accents/Peppers if you're looking or ordinary and rare specimens. Toni



On February 2nd, 2013, Toni05 added the following:

Although temps were frigid, Fred sent securely wrapped plants. Heat pack included.
Plants arrived fresh and healthy as usual.

Order consisted of:

Tricolor Strawberry Begonia
Strawberry Begonia...several stolens
Golden Strawberry Begonia

Begonia 'Strawberry Cream'...true Begonia, not Saxifraga

Miagos Bush variegata

Via emails, Fred and I discussed the best time plants should be shipped. Since he keeps track of weather conditions, he reserved my order until temps reached 32F.

Accents/Peppers has numerous plants I'd like to add to my collection but the last few days temps have been in the single digits, 0-8F; patience is the key. :) Toni









On July 1st, 2013, Toni05 added the following:

Sorry for the delay,

Accents has rare, healthy, good-size, reasonably priced plants.

One never knows what one will find when browsing indoor, outdoor plants, containers, figurines and supplies.

I've added five additonal plants..

Each plant I received are healthy, beautiful, great size, pest-free, colorful and reasonably priced.

Thanks Fred, Toni

I just received some of the most amazing plants I have ever seen from Accents for Home and Garden. The plants are worthy of Forest Farm or Select Seeds (I think you know what a compliment that is) at a fraction of the price. I received three beautiful wintergreens, a quite large peace lily, two oregano Kent Beauty, three scented geraniums and an abutilon. They were well packaged and fresh. I am very pleased. These guys REALLY know what they are doing, and I will not hesitate to order from them in the future.


On May 28th, 2013, DonnaMack added the following:

Oh, my, goodness!

The abuliton I received April 20 - ordered is three times larger and covered with buds. The previous one I received from another source was so weak I wondered whether I could really grow this plant - I just took a chance.

The peace lily is forming flowers.

The wintergreens, with which so many people have difficulty, have popped out new and beautiful leaves. Yes, I used soil conditioner, but most people say these things never grow, and just fade away.

The Kent Beauties are thriving, as well as the scented geranium.

With this quality and these prices, if I am looking for something they have, it's a go!

Today I received my first order with this company. I am very impressed. I pre-ordered my plants and they were shipped on time. They were very well packed. They were wrapped and taped to hold the soil in and then wrapped with 2 layers of newsprint to protect the foliage.
The plants, 15 of them, are very robust and healthy appearing. They are the type of plants that I would choose for myself from any local nursery. Each plant was given very specific growing requirements.
All in all, a very nice company. Great plants, good packaging and kept to the shipping schedule. Nice plants at a very fair price. I will be ordering from them again!

The good: most of the plants looked really good, Some where quite large (8 inch+) and had good root systems, also (as occasionally happens with nursery stock) one of the trees I got separated into two well rooted trees. They also had a plant that was in stock but said that they don't ship it till mid summer which is mildly annoying but they gave me a refund for it and the shipping.

The bad: 2 of the 7 were pretty root-bound, they were poorly package, wrapped in newspaper and laid in the box with nothing stopping them for bouncing around. Some plants were quite bent up but not many broken limbs since it was mostly herbs. The jiao-gu-lan I ordered both looked dismal, dead bits and extremely small (one with just a few leaves above the surface),

Overall I'd prefer they packaged them a bit better but for the price the plants were nice and I might order from them again.

This is my very 1st PLANT mail order and I could not be ANY HAPPIER with my products. I ordered 6 Hoyas and thought about ordering more in that shipment. Mr. Fred was kind enough to let me know in advance that he did not carry what I wanted to add. Somehow in the process though he was kind enough to throw in an extra HOYA! Talk about a pleasant SURPRISE. My plants showed up very healthy and each one individually WRAPPED EXTREMELY well. Something I've never seen before that Mr. Fred does is provide taped description & care instructions on the pot of each plant. That to me goes above and beyond any level of service I could have expected. I wondered about the "Shipping charge" but with that kind of care IT'S WORTH IT! Thank you Mr. Fred -- Your customer for LIFE!!!

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 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.
