I have been looking for Oenothera triloba for some time. This nursery is the only place based on a Google search that offers this plant. I found their prices a bit high ($14 for the plant and $10 for postage) but the description seemed to say that the plant was growing in a gallon-sized pot. Besides, I really want this plant. What arrived was a box with NO packing material. There was a large Zip-Loc bag with "1 gal potting mix" written on it, and a smaller Zip-Loc bag with a few bits of moist sphagnum moss. Also in the box was the potting mix, loose, and a scrap of something that may have once been a plant. A nylon ribbon had been tied to it and on the ribbon someone had written my name, misspelled, and "wild rose." So, yes, it does look very much like the wild rose seedlings/suckers that I frequently remove from my garden (are there people who actually BUY this noxious weed?). The potting mix isn't even a particularly good potting mix.

One of the plants I ordered was missing from the shipment. They will not send a refund and will not call back.

Absolutely horrible!!! Steer clear! Very Poor product and company! Extremely overpriced! Shorted the quantity and when I called to correct, was lied to and then hung up on. Why does Dave have this company on its site? The worst possible experience! Again, steer clear!

Wow. What a scam. I have to thank the other commentors for warning us all about this company. They got busted posting a large number of positive reviews under different usernames, on the same day! The people running this "company" should be behind bars.

After I posted the above, I wrote basically the same thing to the BBB (Better Business Bureau). I assumed that would just be counted somewhere in some overworked person's office. No! They emailed me today to say they contacted the Nursery regarding my complaint and the Nursery has agreed to give me a refund if I send back the plants. I was able to flag down my UPS man this afternoon and secure the bundle and send them off today. We are considering going out and buying trees locally tomorrow but I might wait until the money shows up in my account. So, issue resolved, almost, but not without filing a complaint.

No refund Policy, no address on the website and no contact information. If a plant send to you is damaged you need to send it back to them within 24 hrs (this means you need to send it back overnight package). the boxwood which i bought from them has small one branch about 5 inches long for 7.99 while the website state that it should be 1 foot long. My other plant is totally destroyed don't know due to wimpy packing (there was no box) or plant was broken before shipment. i sent them the photo but there was no offer of replacement.

What a disaster of a company. The owner of this company seems to have very limited knowledge of anything related to plants. She posts SPAM messages on other gardening sites and uses many names (like TyTy does) to keep her bad reputation from spreading. Some of the names they go by include D & T Wholesale Nursery, Fast Growing Trees, Quick Growing Trees, Tennessee Wholesale Nursery, TN Nursery, and Wetland Supplies. To top all this off, she tried to post a bunch of fake positive reviews for her own company (see Tennessee Wholesale Nursery reviews) but got caught!
