Based on the reviews here, I ordered 2 brugmansias. I was skeptical of the size I would be getting for the price, but I'm always happy to nurture a baby until it gets bigger.
I received my order 3 days after placing it. The brugs were wrapped and packaged well and the size of them impressed me. Later on when I planted them, I was struck by the great root systems on both of them. Very happy with my purchase! Now I wish I had the room to grow more brugs, I'd love to order more!
Purchased a bunch of different bearded irises for work last year. They were sold out of some of the ones I wanted but what they did have was fantastic and a bargain! Arrived in good condition and beautiful. Would order again.
I ordered a white oleander on Monday and it arrived on Wednesday, less than 48 hours later! Packaging was excellent, plant was much bigger than expected, and appears quite healthy. Will definitely order again!

Fast service, big beautiful blue passionvine (Passiflora caerulea) in the gal size at a very good price. I can recycle the styrofoam peanuts at a type of Mailboxes, Etc. store. Very happy with the plant!
I thought the price and reviews were too good to be true, but I ordered 9 Frostproof Gardenias and BOY were they BEAUTIFUL when they arrived! Not a leaf out of place and all stems intact! I am unbelievably pleased with this purchase - the plants were larger than expected and came packed with care! These plants are better and far less expensive than the ones at the huge nursery down the street. I highly recommend this vendor and will order again - if I can find any more room in my yard!!!

Very satisfied with the four brug plants here, which were very well rooted, thick and woody plants, and not only were they well rooted but also much larger and taller than I expected. They were very well packed and I couldn't be more pleased. Communications were key here with me, since I had given her the wrong address to ship to, and then she had to re-ship the plants.
I would definitely purchase from this company again.

This second order arrived in great shape, these Brugs were potted up last week and they are doing great and have started showing more growth. Thank you again for some well rooted plants.
I ordered a Lion's Ear, Leonotis leonurus from this compapany just a few days ago. What a beautiful plant they sent. Full with much branching and healthy leaves. It was packed very carefully and I don't think it lost a single leaf in transition. A few weeks ago I ordered a Justicia sp., Mexican honey suckle, from K.K. too. It is growing and doing beautifully even with the cooler than normal weather. This company deserves its ranking as one of the best. It certainly is. Of course, I highly recommend them.
I ordered two Osmanyhus Fragrans, got an e-mail telling me when they shipped and how. When they arrived yesterday I understood the disclaimer on the web page about not guaranteeing USPS damage. Despite the shipping triangle tube being crushed and two sides completely severed, the plants were so well packed that they were healthy and undamaged. Much larger plants than expected, too. Now to see if I can keep them alive in Las Vegas' climate.
I ordered a few passiflora vines. All arrived promptly via priority mail, in moist soil. All have been planted, and are starting to cling to a pole or trellis. I'd definitely order from Kuntry Kuttins again.
I ordered a foxtail fern and was very pleased with the value of the purchase along with the quality of the plant. Service was prompt and although there was confusion about the mailing address, Kathy immediately corrected the situation once it was brought to her attention. In addition, I was impressed with her quick e-mail correspondence. I would recommend this seller.

Received two Sweet Olive and one Gardenia Frostproof. Good root balls, healthy stock and well packed. I order a lot and will order here again; this was my first order. Her Hibiscus look especially tempting!
This was my first order from Kathy, but I'm sure it won't be my last. The prices and shipping charges were reasonable, her communication was excellent, and my plants arrived quickly and in great condition. They were healthy, good-sized plants, and I can't wait to see them growing in my garden!!
I bought 3 "Frost Proof" gardenias. They were packaged in an appropriate container. The leaves were healthy and non of the stems were broken.The plants looked just like the one I have in my garden. I'm excited to add these 3 to my garden and I will HAPPILY shop with this vendor again!

I ordered 5 plants in mid April. Although it took her over 2 weeks to ship to me (I was oh-soooo waiting-and impatient!) they all arrived (with an email to let me know they were on the way) very healthy, of excellent size, and one already to bloom. What I liked the most was the care taken in packing, and the fact they are disease and insect free. I waited a while to post just to be sure.
I didn't like the 'wait' but also understand she is small, most likely does this work herself, and would definitely recommend ordering from her to anyone. Like I said, I'm an impatient person, and if it took her two weeks to be sure I got what I did, well worth it. Thanks Kathy, they're beautiful!
I placed my order on Tuesday morning, received an email that the plants had been shipped on Wednesday, by 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, the package had been delivered. They were well packed in newspaper and appear to be healthy, in good condition and larger than plants I have previously ordered from other companies. I am very satisfied with my order. Thank you.
