In 2009, I received a wonderful order from Blue J. The rhizomes were small compared to many other growers, but that is to be expected due to the location of this garden. In that shipment, the rhizomes were mature and ready to be offered commercially.

Recieved a e-mail from Blue J shortly after posting my previous comment. She informed me of the bad growing conditions in Neb. this year and that was the reason for the small rhizomes. She also stated that she has been very busy and was sorry it took her three months to answer my e-mail. She also offered to refund if I lost some of them which is fine with me. I would suggest that they drop the part about having rhizomes to offer that are the size of golf balls.

I have no complaints, but in comparison to another iris vendor I bought from recently, their rhizomes were much smaller.

I had two problems with this company on my 2007 order. First, I had a large order which required 6 boxes. They were sent taped together in a tall column. The weight crushed the bottom of the lowest box and iris were missing. I reported this by email and there was no offer to replace. Also, about 1/3 of the iris rhizomes were minute...less than 1/2 inch. So, my expectations that they have survived a very cold zone 5 winter is doubtful .Also, I had no reply when I emailed about the size of so many of the rhizomes. With a few of the small ones I received 2 very small ones instead of just 1. Frankly, I would preferred not to receive any that size.My order was placed early....in February and iris were sent out in July...so no problems with the time of the order . Price is good but it is not worth my time and effort to receive such. She is a very pleasant person so I did not give a negative.

I have withheld comment on Blue J. for several reasons. To see how the iris fared and to see if mine was an isolated incident...

I also give this garden a 10+ rating!!! I ordered 144 rhizomes and was very pleased with my order--
On September 2nd, 2006, Nancymo changed the rating from positive to neutral and added the following:
The first order I received from them last year was great---so I decided to send in another order (05). The second was packed in the straw, the rhizomes were moldy and much smaller. I figured the size was due to ordering so late in the season. I had about a 50% bloom on the ones that lived and out of those around 10 were not correctly named. I ordered this year mainly to get be able to get the correct ones from last year.
The order this year was not much better. So next year I will pass.
