It is not possible to order from this nursery online, so I sent in an order form from a plant I could not locate elsewhere (pink woodruff or Phuopsis). After not hearing anything for many weeks, I finally contacted the nursery. While I had not been charged, I was also faced with an empty spot in the garden I had reserved for these plants. After a few days I received a terse reply that due to crop failure they could not fill the order. Of course there is nothing that can be done about crop failure, but it would have been nice to know sooner that my order was cancelled without having to chase down the information.


On June 6th, 2007, kkirschbaum added the following: I just saw the company rep's response, and I regret if I misunderstood the situation. I will email them to indicate that I would certainly be happy to accept the plants if they become available (though I since filled the spot I left for them, one can always find a little room to squeeze interesting new plants into).

I ordered 10 Clethra alnifolia 'Sixteen Candles'...the packaging was outstanding and the plants are some of the best I've ever seen anywhere. All communications were speedy, thoughtful and extremely helpful. I highly recommend them to one and all. And the owner, a true plantsman, is one peachy fella! Altogether, it was an outstanding experience.
