EXCELLENT!!!! I just received my honeysuckle and an EXTREMELY happy. Plants are in VERY good health. Packaging kept plants SAFE and cozy. Plants shipped the next shipping day and only had to travel for TWO days (GA to MI). I repeat--EXCELLENT! These plants will thrive beautifully. I look forward to ordering from them next year. Thank you Thyme after Thyme.

I had high hopes for this company to be my new online resource based on the very positive reviews but I must've got them on a bad day. I'm not happy an can't ignore it as I'm highly annoyed that I've had to spend another day looking for plants that I alredy ordered. I'm sure others will have good things to say, I'm leaving this as a neutral due to the fact that the first person i spoke to was very helpful and courteous, but after that it went down hill from there.
I felt the need to an email today - this is it below:
I need to get this off of my chest as this has bothered me all morning. I sent Thyme after Thyme an email on March 29, 2011 because I was interested in placing an online order with your company and was having a problem selecting diferent varieties of plants on the website. I left a voicemail earlier on the same day but recieved no call back in regards to it, however when I sent the email via Daves Garden (Garden Watchdog) I recieved a call back quickly. I spoke with a very friendly woman who's name escapes me but I know she was fighting a cold when she took my order, answered all of my questions and made wonderful suggestions to add to my order. I gave my billing and shipping information, selected my shipment date of 4/25/2011 and was told to expect an email and phone by 4/22/2011 to confirm shipment and if I needed to change anything I could do so then. Well I never recieved a call so I called on 4/22/2011 and again requested a call back - I received nothing.
I called this morning and was passed to Heather who I am assuming handles the orders. My order from 3/29/2011 was never placed! Are you kidding me? Some of the items I ordered and was told where in stock and would not be a problem are now no longer available. Are you kidding me? No phone call to the customer to advise of this? I placed my order ahead of time to avoid situations such as this. Now I'm concerned about exactly where my billing information has disappeared to. Sigh....
I was very excited to try this company for the first time but the customer service went from a 10+ to a 1 in less than 30 days. I doubt I will try this again.
On April 25th, 2011, LOVIE2 changed the rating from neutral to positive and added the following:
I recieved a very personable and apologetic phone call today to address the issues in my previous post. While I cannot vouch for the quality of the plants themselves, customer service mean so much to me right now. For the level of customer service recieved today, I feel I need to change my rating to a positive. Thanks Jenny! .On May 1st, 2011, LOVIE2 added the following:
As stated before good customer service is a priority with me and I can say that as of 4/29/11 - I have recieved the BEST customer service I could have ever imagined with this company. I am quite honored that my comments were taken so seriously and that my business is important to them. I am now able to vouch for their plant quality as I have a few at this time. EXCELLENT!! :-)
I'm so excited to see how the thyme and Rosemary "Arp" does over this winter. The pineapple sage smells divine! Sally and Jenny - You guys rock! Thank You!
Absolutely the best! Exceptional customer service and rapid response to my questions. Ordered 3 Tangerine Beauty Crossvines on a Sunday and received them Monday! Secure and well packed. Vines were in excellent shape. I can't say enough good things about this company. I highly recommend them. Thanks!

Ordered two sugar cane ( ornamental grass ), These plants
came in gallon containers just like they sell at home depot

Just bought and received 4 allspice, 1 bay rum, 1 galanga from this company. VERY PLEASED!!!!! the plants are vibrant, vigorous and reasonably priced. Jenny & Heather are a joy to deal with. I got the plants quickly and as promised.
Minus: their web inventory might not be up-to-date; Check with them. In my case, I got pleasant surprise finding out what they actually have in stock.
I definitely buy from Thyme After Thyme again!

I have just started searching for a blue glow agave plant. I called Thyme after Thyme as they were a vendor advertised on Dave's Garden as having one to sell. I was delighted to be able to speak to the owner, Sally, at a time that was convenient for her to talk a bit. She not only gave me advice about the plant I was interested in, but offered other suggestions about my specific need. She took care to ensure I understood the size of the plant she had to offer and shipping and handling policies so there were no surprises on my end. Her passion for her business, knowledge and interest in my needs have made me eager to complete a transaction.
Well rooted, healthy, full-gallon size plants at unbeatable prices.
Glad I had the foresight to inquire into the 3-gallon Saccharum arundinaceum ..... HARDY SUGAR CANE. As it sits in the pot now, it is at filled out size that will give it a good start in zone 6 here. I intend to pick the best spot and baby this baby through the coming winter.
Amy, I appreciate your communication on mailing as well as our informative chat and your assistance on the phone.
Positively good buy on all 5 plants with reasonable handling and shipping charges. Salud!

I just ordered some g. Veronica and it is beautiful. I am going to order 12 more because my husband liked it so well for an area that doesn't get much sun and we can't grow grass. They were well packed and good plants.
Great customer service, answered lots of my questions about plants and worked with me on which plants would be best for my area. I recently moved from Denver, Co to Katy, Tx so am learning all over again about which plants will do well here. My plants arrived as described. Very pleased!
