I'm leaving feedback for a plant I bought from MG's 8 or so years ago, but at the time, I didn't know GardenWatchdog existed.

The plant I wanted was hard to find elsewhere, so when I came across MG, I placed an order. The plant was, Ming Fern.

The price was a little higher than other nurseries, but because it was rare, and I wanted it, I placed my first order at MG.

The Ming Fern arrived 'can't recall shipping time,' was good-sized, well-rooted, healthy, pest-free and beautiful.
It's alive and well to this day.
The Ming was well-packed, no broken stems. Fronds were vivid green, no brown or yellow.

The only con I see with MG is price. There are numerous online stores that sell the same plants at 1/3rd the cost.
If MG decreased prices, I bet their business would sky-rocket.
Perhaps I'm wrong..they might have a zillion customers.

There's enough competition and over-head to keep a nursery going these days, which is understandable. Still, I'm a frequent online nursery shopper, so I'm familiar with plant and shipping costs.

However, I feel MG deserves Positive feedback for the plants health and beauty.

I don't mean to sound offensive. As far as I'm concerned, MG has beautiful plants, and their prices isn't worth neutral or negative feedback. I'm just being honest.

On 6/6/10 I ordered a Dwarf Pink Poinciana. As this was late Sunday, too late for a Monday (they only ship on Monday) shipment, I expected the plant to arrive on 6/17 or 6/18. When it did not I notified them that I had not received the plant. Their site advises to email ASAP if the plant does not arrived when expected. I have emailed them 3 times with no response (or plant). However, because I am on their mailing list I have subsequently received 2 notices from them of plants they are offering. They charged my credit card immediately. I have opened a claim with PayPal in an attempt to either get the plant or get my money back.

I have done business with this vendor many times with excellent results. I cannot understand this behavior. I will not deal with them again.

On July 2nd, 2010, jedoody changed the rating from negative to positive and added the following:

I have taken this issue to the Paypal Resolution Center and it has been quickly resolved to my satisfaction. There may have been a mix up as Karl says he never received my order or my emails, and seeing he responded promptly to Paypal and refunded my money, I will change my feedback to positive as I have ordered many times from him and never had any problem.

I recently placed an order for a Desert Rose plant and a packet of seeds. The plant and seeds arrived promptly and they included a bonus packet of seeds. Green Thumbs up for Karl.
