I sent a mail order late fall of 2016 with a check. Plan was to purchase some hybrid hazel plants to go into the ground this spring (2017).

After reporting Badgersett to the BBB, Badgersett responded to tell me they don't give refunds because they're "a small company." (How difficult is it for a "small" company to write a check?!). They claim their policy of never giving refunds was on their website when I ordered -- I just missed it). They offered to ship the plants I ordered with their 2017 shipments. Seeing little choice, I accepted their offer. I'll be back to report whether or not I receive any plants. Checking with Dave's Garden Watchdog is a great idea BEFORE ordering.

I placed an order and paid $300 up front in March, and was given a choice of delivery dates. I chose mid-May, they agreed. Come mid-May and no peep I inquire; they answer "you're in the queue, just wait". Come mid-June and I inquire, they answer "a little more patience would be great". Then no more replies until finally a broadcast email they are suspending shipments for the year. So having read here about plant quality I am asking for a refund; wish me luck.

Sent for trees in 2015 summer and received a note that they would not be sent until May 2016. Contacted them in May 2016 and they replied in a dismissive fashion that they were busy and this continued in June with no trees being shipped.

worst plant material, worst service. I ordered about two hundred and fifty dollars worth of plants and seeds from them and when I got them, 3/4s were dead. The way the package was put together was a joke and when I asked them about it, they immediately tried to blame the post office. I took pictures of the arrangement and the plants before I called them. Even when they got the pictures emailed to them they were obsessed with the whole blameshifting thing and wouldn't take ownership of a simple mistake on their part. They would not refund my order but instead put me through a bureaucratic process of negotiating with them. They were supposed to get back to me months ago about the outcome and still have not, and probably won't unless I "badger" them. Seriously if you want a headache and some crappy plants make an order with them. If not order plants somewhere else!

I ordered several sets of hazelnuts, plus hickories and some butternuts. As with other comments, I had great difficulty in getting information about when plants would be shipped. Plus some plants were no longer available and rather than being given an options to re-order and pay when available - the next year - they kept all of the money and sent some of the missing items the next year.

It is now 2012 and probably safe to add comments about dealing with this company. Every attempt to contact them or expect them to act on promises was accompanied by at least a very long delay and a pathetic excuse. Only 4 of my initial order of 21, for which I paid $132, ever survived. After about a year of trying I eventually received a replacement shipment and none of those survived even though I planted immediately and kept them out of the sun until they saw the hole. I mail order many trees, shrubs and other plants from other companies and never had any look as bad as that first shipment. I really appreciate Dave's Garden Watchdog as I have found the comments to be an excellent guide.

I ordered hazelnut tubelings (per their instructions-etc) on 7-20-09. I sent the order blank and a check which was cleared by my bank on 8-6-09. I never received an acknowledgement of this . After numerous e-mails, phone calls, etc, I am still waiting for an acknowledgement of a planned shipping date or the "refund of the check" as they stated in their website. I received an e-mail stating that "they are overloaded with work" (however they had time to cash the check). After sending another e-mail and making a phone call (just this morning - Feb 4, 2010) I feel the least they could do is "RETURN THE CHECK". I will never do business with them again !!!!

I've tried contacting this company since 4/15/09. Today is 5/5/09. They say email is the best way in which to correspond. I've sent four emails. No response to any of them. I simply am inquiring to find out if my order was even received (no confirmation of any kind was sent out), and if so an approximate shipping date. Hopefully I can come back and change this to a positive, but right now things aren't looking too good.
