I was very disappointed when the two daylilies I ordered arrived. Both were quite small and were put, just bare root, into two paper bags. When I opened up the bag they were dried out and half dead. Daylilies are tough plants and I am hoping they will survive but if they had just put a little more effort into the packaging, I think they would have done much better. I don't feel I got my money's worth.

I ordered about 2 dozen daylilies from this company about a year and a half ago. Never, in more than 10 years of ordering plants by mail, have I received such poor plants in such abysmal packaging. They were all very small single fans with dessicated roots and many had dessicated foliage. The plants (4 varieties, 6 plants of each) had simply been stuffed into individual paper bags which were then stapled shut and the cultivar name written on the bag in black marker. The bags were put into a Priority Mail cube box just as is, and mailed. Their charge for this pathetic packing and shipping was more than double what the postage actually cost; I wouldn't have minded if the plants had been in decent condition rather than half-dead. Their prices were very reasonable and now I know why ("you get what you pay for" principle). I would never recommend or re-order from this vendor.

If you ordered from us but on here you put you ordered a year and a half ago this would be about 3 years ago from today and i could find no records from the New York City you are from.
