I've ordered seed from Teresa in the past. Her prices are phenomenal, shipping is prompt and germination results are high. I hope to order seed from her again and look forward to ordering bulbs and plants from her too.
On June 14th, 2006, CaptMicha changed the rating from positive to negative and added the following:
Changing a positive to a negative is a drastic difference but the seed that I germinated did not come true.
And I ordered a Spigela and a Dianthus from her, both were pitifully small plants, little more than plug size and the small pots weren't even half filled up with root growth.
Needless to say, those perennials didn't survive our unusually mild winter.On Oct 22, 2004, T's Flowers & Things responded with:

I am very upset about this negative because this customer never made an attempt to let me know of the dissatisfaction of the plants, or that the seeds didn't come true. My policy clearly states that if you are unsatisfied with your plants when you receive them, return them for a full refund including shipping. I like to know if seeds don't come true, especially if they are commercial seeds. Most of the seed that I harvest is open pollinated, so I indicate on the web pages to expect some variation or that plants may not grow true to parent, such as aquilegias and buddleias."
I also had my order canceled for no apparent reason(at least none was give). I recieved my money back but was disappointed, as I was counting on the flowers I had ordered. I submitted my order early so it was not like their was insufficient time to process and plan ahead. I would like to order again as the prices are great.
Ordered seeds and plants early this year. Seed order short one packet which was promptly shipped when I made it known. But being promised plants to be shipped in may and then receiving no plants is something else. I've now lost a years growth. My money was refunded after I emailed and asked why my plants hadn't arrived. But I received no email saying my plants would not be available prior to my asking where they were. I won't order again from this company.
