Received 3 nice-sized, well-rooted bare-root plants from Buried Treasures today.
Emails are answered promptly. Shipping fast.
Prices are fantastic considering plants like Adenium, and Crown of Thorns (Euphorbia) are variegated and didn't cost an arm and leg. Toni

Got 2 Pepperment Candy, Thai, Euphorbia Crown of Thorns today..They're nice-sized and well-rooted..
Buried Treasures answers emails promptly..Plants are well-packaged and shipping super fast. I like they're plants so much, I've bid on four more; waiting for auction to end..Toni
On April 9th, 2008, Toni05 added the following:

Received four bare-root Euphorbia Crown of Thorns. Each cutting if 6-6 1/2" tall, one has leaves..Stems are nice and firm..
Buried Treasures answers emails promptly..
Each stem is wrapped individually, w/name tag attached, then placed in a box filled with shredded newspaper.
Shipping super fast, without delay..Toni
On May 15th, 2008, Toni05 added the following:

Received two, healthy, bare-root Adeniums: Three Kings and Tropic Snow.
Plants are 7-8" from base to tip of leaves, both Ademiums have several leaves.
Chris and Gretchen answer emails promptly.
Shipping is quick and plants well-packed...
I first ordered from Buried Treasure in 2006, wish I'd found them sooner.

What can I say? I love Buried Treasures..Received 4 bare-root Euphoriba Crown of Thorns today: Sonia, Peach Delight, Yellow Shade and Cherrie Jubilee.
Sizes from base to top, 8-10". All four arrived with foliage.
BT's prices are incredible, plants healthy and pest-free, shipping is quick and plants well-packaged, and Chirs and Grethen are fantastic when it comes to answering questions, even though I'm sure they're busy this time of year.
I can't wait until their new shipment arrives in June or July. They're getting in numerous varieties...that means I have to hide my cc statement from hubby..LOL..Thanks Gretchen and Chris..Toni

On June 27th, 2008, Toni05 added the following:

Ordered and received 6 plants from Buried Treasure. As usual they're gorgeous. 3 Adeniums and 3 Hibiscus. Adenium White Jade, (super fabulous) Pink Diamond and Sunburst.
Also purchased 3 Cajun Hibisucs. City Slicker, Gabriel and Magnigique.
Shipping was super speedy. Chris and Gretchen are most helpful. Considering the time of year, they answer emails promptly and if you have a question, most often than not, they're near the phone to help.
Eventually, I'd like to have in my possession, each and every one of their plants..Especially Adeniums and Euphorbias..LOL..Toni

On November 3rd, 2011, Toni05 added the following:

Over the years I purchased several succulents from Buried Treasures.
I never heard of a E. Crown of Thorns, variegata. I emailed Chris after his last COT was sold; he went out of his way to find another, smaller, but healthy Crown, plus gave me a deal.

He and I had conversations on the phone regarding different plants. He was very patient, waiting for me to decide which plant to order.
He gave great advice on care, too.

I am so very sorry to hear this terrible news. My prayers are with his family. Toni

I had a good experience with Chris and Gretchen Moore of Buried Treasures. I ordered a large adenium and a small terrestrial orchid. (My needs did not include express shipping or expedited handling.)

Chris and Gretchen both worked with me to make sure my order was right and that I was happy with my plants.

I ended up with beautiful plants. They are getting acclimated as I write this. Once they are established, I have high hopes for them!

Based on this experience, I am happy to give Buried Treasures high marks.

Sometimes one's 1st impression of a company isn't the most important. I ordered and adenium and a euphorbia. Bothe came without instructions for care. The adenium graft was wrapped in plastic and when I took it off, the graft fell off. The euphorbia was in good shape. I e-mailed Chris and he was quite responsive - send another plant and care instructions. 2nd plant is well-grafted and appears to be doing well. I am waiting to hear about the euphorbia as it is now losing it's leaves. Hopefully Chris will continue to be as responsive. The combination of his quick response and the quality of the plants is what causes me to give a positive review.

Well I'm glad I'm not the only one that's frustrated. I ordered two Euphorbias last fall (and paid for them) for delivery this spring. I've never received them. I think someone was ill and things got really backed up. I am sorry for that but would like to receive what I paid for. I written to them on Facebook as well with no response. VERY disappointing as this was a company that I liked alot.

This is a true conundrum. When I placed my order, in late March, there were about 20 positive comments in a row, and no recent negatives. I thought I could place my order for 4 Adeniums in confidence. My credit card was charged within a couple of days. However, my suggested ship week came and went, with nary a peep. Phone calls and emails were completely ignored, even when I gave an exact date when I would be disputing the charges with my bank. Fortunately, the bank credited my account in full (Buried Treasures never contacted them), so I ultimately didn't lose any $$$$. Still, one wonders what happened. If there was a death in the family or some such thing, wouldn't that be reflected on the website? This is a mystery that is begging to be solved. In the meantime, it is too risky at this point to send an order in to Buried Treasures, as enticing as the website can be!

Woe is me! I will never mail order plants again without first checking out Dave's!!! I ordered a hibiscus that I had been looking for on June 1, they had it advertised just so beautifully. As soon as my paypal account was charged, they sent me a nice thank you and a tracking number. No worries..until a month passes, the tracking number keeps saying : processing . I start by emailing -no answer, calling leaving messages - no answer or return calls. Creepy - They scam with finesse. These folks are bandits!

Ordered from these people twice before with slow service, but good plants. This time I ordered in early Feb. of this year(2010) and after several e-mails & 3 unanswered phone calls, with the last e-mail stating my intentions to leave a nasty gram here and file for money back from Paypal. I have read in another complaint that bad weather was the problem, not true, I live 250 miles NW or their area and yes it was abnormally cold this year, but not that cold, especially for semi hardy plants. If they had at least notified me back about any problem. come on people, I can drive there in much less than 5 hours to pick the plants up, but not without confirmation that they will even be open be there. The lack of callbacks or at least an answer to the emails shows me these people do not have any regard for their clients, so from now on I have no respect for them. If these people do not straighten out they will be out of business by years end.

I placed an order with Buried Treasures and my credit card was charged but I never received the order. I have sent three email's and left a message on their voice mail, but I never receive any reply. I finally disputed the charge with my credit card company.

I would advise anyone thinking about ordering from this company to be very careful...they took my order and my money and then became extinct !!

Don't know if it's a scam or just poor business practices, but either way...they received their money and received nothing but a headache !

Tuesday, March2, 2010 I got email from Buried Treasures 40% off well rooted and fully flushed Euphorbias to first 50 customers. He said they are the nicest offered this early and some are beginning to flower. I ordered several at that time, then called Chris a few days later and wanted to know if I could add to my order since I was one of the "first 50 customers". He said fine. That was Friday, March 5. I ordered a total of 16 Euphorbias that were on sale. He said I should receive them next week since I am in Zone 8. I emailed and emailed priority and called and called and left many messages. I never could get a response after he approved the additional order Friday himself over the phone. The money came straight out of my bank account, not Paypal, like they used to do. I had ordered before so trusted them. That was $80.92.
The order was still "processing" as of today May 11 and still no response from them!!!!!!

Ordered as a gift in January, quick response and promise to deliver at a specific date.

That date has come and gone, no delivery. No decision to respond to emails or to phone messages. Absolutely nothing. This is not a poor nursery, this is theft.

These people represent the worst of why you should be very careful when ordering online, because even those that have many positive ratings will take the short, easy and unfortunately morally lacking alternative to doing good business if and when something goes wrong.

In the meantime I guess I'll be following up with the credit card company and other appropriate venues to make sure people don't have their money stolen by this company.

*Thumbs down*

I have previously left Buried Treasures positive feedback and attempted a second transaction with them. I purchased an adenium on ebay from them and then also ordered directly from their web site.

The seller had mentioned that they had been hit hard by Florida's unusually cold weather this year but would be shipping soon. That was the last correspondence that I received. For three weeks there was absolutely ZERO response and my order totalled around $150. I ended up having to file a claim with both ebay and paypal.

The seller didn't respond to either claims and I ended up getting a refund because of this. I will not ever do business with this seller again which is unfortunate but all they had to do was tell me the truth and communicate with me and I would have worked with them.

I have ordered 2 plumerias back in Feb 23rd and received an email back from then on Feb 27th that they have charged my credit card. When I emailed them the same day on when I can expect the shipment, they responded that I will get my plants in10days. It is closer to 2 months since my order and I have not received my plants yet and they do not respond to my phone calls or emails. I never got either Chris or Gretchen to answer their phones in person, I had to leavel voicemails that have never been returned. It is ok if they cannot send the plants in time, but atleast if they respond and let me know on the reason for the delay would be good, I can wait. I am really dissappoined with this order. I checked gardenwatchdog before ordering but I think it was a costly mistake. I am planning to call my credit card comany on this charge by this company and report on them.

In Dec 2009 I placed and order for bulbs to be delivered in Jan. Due to the very cold weather they emailed to say that the order would be delayed. I waited and emailed them after the weather moderated I thought- they emailed back and said it was still too cold. I then emailed them in Feb again- still to cold to ship they said. Now none of my emails are being answered. They have my money and I don't have my order- I am very unhappy with this company and will recommend not to order from them.

I ordered from Buried Treasures for the first time in February, 2010. After not having received my order, nor any contact from the seller stating when it might be shipped, I contacted the seller one month later (in March, 2010) by email. After not getting a reply, I sent several more emails with no response from the seller. I finally had to open a "Non-receipt Claim" with PayPal to try to get my money refunded (which has not yet happened either). Regardless of what happens, I will never order from this seller again!

I placed an order July 5th, paid through paypal, was given a tracking number which does not work, today is August 5th and no shipment.

I placed a dispute with paypal, and told them that I was going to give negative feedback. It seems that they do not care. I still do not have my order.

i've ordered from buried treasures a few times now and am very happy with their service and health of the plants and bulbs i've received. this last order was of cajun hibiscus, and the plants sent were well over a foot tall with many leaves! the fact that they traveled all the way across the usa and arrived smiling and healthy and fresh is a testament to this company's quick shipping and dedication to their customer's [and plant's] happiness! i will most certainly order from buried treasures again!

I ordered several bulbs and an orchid species from them. Everything was very profesional, and they included freebies! The bulbs looked big and healthy, and my orchid is already growing larger since it was potted. Nice people to deal with!

I placed an order in February for some plants. I didn't receive a shipping notice and then they were shipped on a weekend I was away. I found them on Monday-pretty much frozen.

I had ordered a Euphorbia and other plants. The Euphorbia was quite dead. I requested a replacement by email and sent pictures of the dead plants. It took many emails and voice messages to even get a response. And then it took forever to get a replacement- I began to wonder if I ever would get the replacement. In the end (after a couple of months) I did.

This company needs to improve their communication! With most of the shipping methods out there today it is very easy to send shipping notification. It is also imperative to respond to email inquiries promptly.

I was also disappointed with the plants -perhaps it's the bareroot shipping but the plants do seem pretty distressed when they arrive.
I'll be buying my tropicals elsewhere in the future.
