Yes indeed, their cataloge is beguiling with the vast variety and selection of African Violets that are offered by this firm. There is also a list of satisfied customers as well(!). This violet vendor clearly states a six week delivery period.My advice: proceed with EXTREME caution!

Back in May of this year, I ordered three plants from this firm. I should have known better, because I had a bad experience with them many years ago. I thought that if they were still in business, they must have improved. I sent for three plants, 2 chimeras, and one with a well variegated leaf, their choice. I received the plants yesterday, nearly four months after I placed my order. I have never gotten such a bad lot of plants mail order or otherwise. When I inquired about a month ago as to what was holding up my plants, I was told that they were waiting for one chimera, Mauna Loa, to bloom so that they would be sure it would come true to type. I accepted the excuse, but sent another E mail 3 weeks later, as they told me my waiting time was 2 weeks, more or less. This was answered by a phone call, telling me that my plants were being shipped. I got them yesterday, but what a mess. Due to careless packing, one plant had lost about half of its leaves, and none of them were even in bud. As a matter of fact, the Chimera, Concord was little more than a rooted cutting. The others were also quite small, and I don't feel I got my money's worth, even if they did put in another small plant. Little more to be said, except that it comes as no surprise that I will never order from them again. It seems, that like the leopard, this firm never changed its spots.

I have sent two orders and twice contacted this company and have never received my orders. The first order will be one year old in May of 2002; the second order was in July 2001. What is this company's problem?
