Placed an order May 1, 2012. I had no contact from the company once I placed my order until I emailed them. Since I received my plant orders from other vendors that I ordered on the same day as this order, I emailed them on May 7th to find out the status of the order. I received a response that stated "Hello: We are just beginning to ship to your Zone. The weather has been a bit unreliable, and we need to make sure that they can ship safely.Thanks for your patience! Customer Support The Growers Exchange 888-829-6201" I thought that rather strange since other vendors had shipped my orders that were placed on the same day as this one, and I received them without issue.

I ordered a Eucalyptus "Silver Drop" and it's arrived in awful condition. The packing job was terrible, I've never before seen a company send live potted plants wrapped in newspaper, laid **on their sides** and buried in styrofoam packing peanuts.

The Grower's exchange responded me the same day I complained, and by business time the next morning let me know a replacement would ship out to me ASAP. I appreciate their prompt response.
However, it left a bad taste in my mouth to have them tell me that the damage must be "in-transit damage", in other words FedEx's fault and not theirs. Sure, the damage occurred in transit -- but it clearly wouldn't have occurred with a different packing method, and FedEx doesn't do the packing.
So, I'm glad I was able to have this resolved so speedily and politely, but I'm not going to order from the Grower's Exchange again.

The new plant arrived, in passable shape (smooshed-looking, but healthy).
Assuming they shipped last Monday as they told me they would, that means it spent 8 days in transit, and I don't understand why they charged me $7 for that when for the same price it could have been sent USPS priority and arrived in 3 or 4 days.
