I ordered from her in 2008. She gave truly amazing customer service. I mostly wanted MDB & SDB irises and she was honest enough to let me know that she had heard that they may not perform well in my zone. I tried them anyway & I am thrillled. Some are doing better than others. I am eager to order more from her, but I have been unable to reach her. I fear that whatever happened to her in 2009 must have been really terrible. I hope she is okay & that her website will soon be updated for 2010.

Wow, this grower really knows her stuff!!! The owner of this company not only grows fabulous irises, but she is also a frequent and helpful contributor in the iris forum here at DG. She is giving of her time and talents to help even us newbies, and the irises she sends are second to none. I can highly recommend her! Ev =)

This was my first order with Shadowood Iris Garden, and I am very satisfied. Laurie provides impeccable service in every regard. Her email communication is very thorough; the shipping swift; and the product top-notch. Her website contains a wealth of information and is a pleasure to navigate. I highly recommend Shadowood Iris Garden!

This is my first year ordering from Laurie, and it was a very positive experience. Like someone else said, the weather took it's toll on her iris, but she sent very healthy iris of the ones she could, and promptly refunded me for the ones she couldn't. She also sent lots of bonus iris. I'm very pleased, and wish her better luck next year with her iris. Mother Nature gets all of us once in awhile, in one way or another.

What a great seller! Apparently the weather this year dealt a horrible blow to her gardens, but Laurie kept me informed at every step of the way, suggested substitutes for the irises that turned out to be unavailable, and cheerfully refunded my money for the ones couldn't be substituted for. The box arrived exactly when promised - full of healthy rhizomes and lots of bonuses, in spite of her bad year.
I can hardly wait to see these beauties next year! I highly recommend the Irises of Shadowood.

I am a little concerned. I placed an order and sent an email to the company about two weeks ago, including paying for the order with paypal, but got no acknowlegment email or any response whatsoever. I have sent another email to both her apparent email addresses, email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org, today in hopes that I will get some response so I know my order has been received and will be shipped out.

Laurie did get back to me and explain that she had been swamped. She sounds very nice, so I am retracting my neutral rating and changing it to positive.

Ordered some median irises from Shadowood last year.
Shadowood is owned by Daves Garden's subscriber Laurief from the iris forum. I have read her very informative posts for years. Laurie is one of the most informative and helpful people on the iris forum.
Iris arrived healthy, timely, and were of good size. Decent prices. I have no doubt they will be true to name. Nice bonuses included. It was a nice plus corresponding back and forth with Laurie.

I greatly enjoyed my ordering experience with Laurie. I collect antique iris and loved the pics and info she set up. The MTBs SDBs TBs and Sibs are all doing fine. She was wonderfully generous in her bonuses and the prices quite reasonable. All were sent on time and I can not wait to see them bloom. Will be ording again for sure.

One of the most pleasurable experiences for me on ordering online.
I was so in awe of all of the eye candy, I was like a kid in a candy store!!
Having been collecting hostas for so many years, it is a real pleasure to have bought so many new plants from Laurie.
You can not go wrong with ordering and doing business with Shadowood. Laurie is an A one seller and really knows her irises. She really keeps her customer in mind and makes the whole experience enjoyable. I will be a repeat buyer.
Laurie is tops in about every catagory of service! As a collector of antique Iris, I was fortunate enough to find her last year and now my collection is dressed up with varieties I hadn't even heard of. You can always count on Shadowood for coming up with stunning varietys at reasonable prices.
