Brugbro Vancouver, Canada (1 review) August 29, 2011
After reading the positive comments, I am disappointed and surprised by Liz and her partner's service. They do not return phone calls or emails. Liz picked up the phone when I called-then hung up and when I called again-her hub answered and said that she was not in. Very suspect in their way of handling customer service. The plants may be good but, the products do not co-incide with the people who represent them. Understandably, they may HAVE BEEN good in the past but, people do change as much as how they run their business. I must say they rate as POOR service overall.

Beautiful Plants! I placed an order in the spring of 2004, Liz the owner had great comunication via email, and shipped healthy plants after fear of frost was over. The brugmansia plants were well rooted cuttings that bloomed in the fall. The seeds were fresh and germinated well. This transaction was flawless. On June 18th, 2011, IMCANADIAN changed the rating from positive to neutral and added the following:
Have tried to order again and get no response.

I ordered 9 separate varieties or brugmansia from Liz. She is very personable in her emails as well as very helpful. The brugs were sent xpresspost, so were guaranteed to arrive in 2 days by Canada Post. Unfortunately the post office sent them on a scenic route and they did not arrive for 5 days. Even given the postal mishap, the large plants (12-14 inch average) arrived in good shape and had a great root ball. This was due to excellent packaging and care taken before they left BC.
Her prices are excellent as well considering the quality product and service she provides. I hope to order more varieties within a month.
If you are looking for brugs, look no further. You will be more than satisfied. If you have any other questions about my experience feel free to contact me. ([email protected])
I was pleased to find this nursery not only in my province, but just across town! I discussed with Liz expanding my collection from my single Charles Grimaldi into different colours and forms, while making scent a priority. She made some suggestions and 5 more bruggies came home a few days ago. I was lucky to be able to tour her lovely terraced garden and view many of the plants in situ. Liz was very kind and extremely knowledgeable, and as her interest in collecting and hybridizing continues, I anticipate making repeat orders as new and interesting varieties are added to her catalogue.

The brugmansia I ordered arrived very healthy looking, had an excellent root system and was packed with care for shipping. Liz is very helpful-she has answered every question I've had and included a leaflet of instructions. I cannot wait to see my first bloom!

Plants were received promptly after order. Good, friendly communication. The soil-less cuttings had a lot of roots, and one even had a bud. The large leaves had been stripped off, as should be done for brugs. We're really lucky to have a brug grower in Canada! Grand selection of cultivars.
My Brugs arrived and are simply outstanding- large, healthy, strong, and well packaged. And, unlike some, what they list, they have in stock.

I ordered a brugmansia from Brugmansias Etc. and my whole experience was great. Liz is very helpful with questions, the plant came in great shape and is doing very well since I received it. The shipping was very quick and the plants roots were well established. I will be ordering from her again and very soon.
