I gather that Shady Acres is no longer taking mail orders, but if you live in the area I recommend stopping by the farm. They carry a terrific selection of heirloom vegetable seedlings (including several of the tomato varieties featured in Carolyn Male's 100 Heirloom Tomatoes for the American Garden), a wide range of herbs, and some edible/companion flowers; all the seedlings I purchased have done very well (the sungold cherry tomato plants are actually attempting to take over the garden as I type this). Their plant list, available for download at their website, is detailed and informative (and helped me plan my purchases so that I didn't end up impulse-buying too many seedlings!).

Plants, prices and selection are terrific. (Shipping costs are a little rough, though.) Shady Acres sent along a thank-you plant, too, which was a nice touch.

I have ordered vegetable and herb plants via mail order from Shady Acres for three years. All plants are packed with great care and arrive in perfect condition. The plants are very good sized, strong and healthy. I have been absolutely thrilled with their selection, friendly service and excellent quality plants. Everything I've ordered has produced exceedingly well every year in my Massachusetts garden. I am a customer for life!

I am devastated to learn that they are no longer in the mail-order business as of 2006.

I have been buying herb and vegetable plants from Shady Aces Herb Farm for over six years now and have always been pleased with the plants and the experience.

First off, my experiences were in-person, not mail order.

I checked their website and thought it only fair to point out that their handling charge seems pricey, as is the catalog($3). They do not fall into my "cheap gardening" criteria as a mail-order company, but the plants were nice in person at the nursery.

I was cruising your list and saw these folk listed. I live within driving distance and so try to pilgrimage out there each spring but I also receive their catalogue. It's full of various types of herbs and informational. From personal purchasing experience, I can tell you they sell quality potted plants, which have always done well for me. I hope some folk try them out and place feedback here.
