Good selection of moderately priced daylilies. The ones I received arrived in good shape and delivered on my requested shipping date. Although they were out of the daylily I requested as a bonus, the one they selected to send me was very nice and more then pleased me. I'd order from them again.

I am very happy with the order I received from Singing Oakes last spring! The daylilies were large, fresh and healthy with extra fans, and they sent a nice bonus plant. The plants all grew well and the half that bloomed were true to name. Prices and communication (by e-mail) were good. I will order from them again.On January 10th, 2010, JWB added the following:
Last summer all of the daylilies from Singing Oakes grew well and bloomed. One of the flowers turned out to be the wrong cultivar and when I called they said I could keep it and they'd send the right one after it bloomed to make sure it was the right one. They sent me an 11 fan clump plus a 4 fan bonus plant! I look forward to seeing them bloom next year.
This garden has to be the best. Peggy and Jim Jeffcoat treat everyone like friends. I was shocked at the large
( very healthy ) clumps of day lilies I got from them. I now have one raised bed of only Singing Oaks day lilies.

I ordered from the Special Early Sale list and my experience could not have been any better. The prices were great and, instead of double fans, I received very nice multiple fans of all but one. And I received a bonus -- unexpected on sale plants! Thank you -- I will order again.

Absolutely the BEST for daylilies. Great customer service, huge plants, usually bonus plants too. I ordered from these fine people for years. I've gotten away from daylilies, but I would not hesitate to recommend this company.On October 5th, 2008, gardenpom added the following:
Sorry, I have not ordered from these people. I ordered from Oakes in Tenn. I would delete my comment if I could. I don't think they are affiliated at all.

The order I received contained super quality plants, a gift and an "extra" (Riders of the Storm worth $75!) very, very generous considering I had only ordered 4 plants total! I did have to make contact a second time asking where my shipment was, but Peggy Jeffcoat got back to me within a day and they shipped a day later. Overall a good experience and I would definitely do business with them again!
This was my first order, and I'm very pleased with Singing Oakes. The selection is great, the fans sent were large and healthy and the bonus was generous. Peg was prompt to respond to my e-mails and very helpful. I'll be back for more next year!
They responded very promptly to an email inquiry. I was notified by email on the day the plants were shipped and they arrived by priority mail 3 days later. Despite the shipping time, they were well hydrated and green. The divisons were exceptionally clean, well labeled and of a very generous size. A detailed invoice was included, packed in a ziploc to keep it dry. One division that had been cut had been carefully dusted with sulfur. The root systems on the plants were some of the best I have ever seen, and the generosity of the gift plants really floored me. I would recommend this company without hesitation, and will most certainly reorder from them after this first experience.

I too am pleased. Everything was as stated--good plants, good service, great bonus. Can't ask for more. I'd definitely order again and tell others to do the same.
I just placed and received my first order from Singing Oakes Garden. Very good customer service, the plants were large and healthy, and the gift plant extremely generous considering the size of my order. I highly recommend this nursery for these reasons.
Great Friendly Service, Large Plants, extra fans and very nice gift plant. Highly Recommend!

Visited Peggy in 2004 and bought tons of plants have lost ony 3 due to ants building over the crowns.
I intend to visit again this year.
The plants were awesome and you get a very generous amount of fans in the divisions.
It is also a beautiful place to visit in June (the peak) when everything is in bloom.
It was very hard not to purchase more than i did.
Received my first order from Singing Oaks this year and was very pleased. Very large, generous, healthy plants, and nice bonus. You can't go wrong here.

Received an outstanding order from Jim & Peg. Nice size plants & unbelieveable bonus plants. I can, without hesitation, recommend them to anyone wanting to purchase daylilies. You won't be sorry or disappointed if you order from the Jeffcoats.
Excellent garden run by someone who has been active in the AHS for many years. Relies heavily on organic fertilizers. Well worth a visit and not too far from I-77.

My wife and I have been visiting and buying daylilies from the Jeffcoats for three years, now. We have yet to be disappointed in ANY way! Their prices are slightly more expensive than many daylily purveyors, but the plants you get are larger, better grown, healthier, and more likely to bloom the first year than you would get elsewhere. Jim's intro Ferol was one of the prettiest in our garden last year. They are two of the nicest people we know, and a trip to visit their wonderful garden in June is well worth making! Good accomodations are available just down the road from them. Their bonuses are what the industry should use as a standard! We highly recommend SINGING OAKES GARDEN!!
