Well, I have now sent this company 2 separate emails and finally tracked down a phone number (I think) and left them a message. I have received NOTHING back from them.... It is spring 2004 in my area and I am very interested in purchasing quite a bit from this company based on their website and the types of plants they have in stock. In fact, many of their plants say "contact us" before purchasing --- my question is HOW????? They NEVER get back to you and this is very frustrating. I have purchased a lot of things over the internet, including plants and have always had my questions and concerns answered very timely and in a very polite manner. This is kind of ridiculous... What in the world prevents them from answering an email sent more than 3 weeks ago... By the time I order and receive these plants it will be WINTER!!!

A few weeks ago, I ordered several different brugmansia cuttings from this company. I've heard nothing from them, my credit card has not been charged, and I've been left in the lurch. How long would it take to send a simple email saying they're backlogged or out of stock? Not getting a response to the order is irritating, to the say the least. I don't even think they're worthy of having a website and they will never get another order from me even if they do eventually shape up.

Here is the response I just received from Lee at Native Habitat. Nice guy, huh? He might want to take a course on customer service.
We clearly state that it could take up to 8 weeks to fill orders. Did you not take the time to read our terms? Plants are not like hummel figurines that I can take off a shelf & send to you the day I get your order. I am glad I found out what kind of person you seem to be (aggressively impatient & hard to satisfy, etc.) BEFORE I charged your
card or sent you anything. Most of our customers are repeat business & they know that it can sometimes take up to 6 months or more to fill an order for particularly rare items. Many of the plants we offer are available ONLY through us & folks are willing to wait for them. I
really feel like we dodged a bullet not doing business with you.

"We are thankful for the overwhelming response that we have had from our offerings of rare plant material. Our terms clearly state that it could take 8 weeks or more to receive an order. I will freely admit to taking much longer than that in many cases. We have never once ripped off a customer. If the wait is too long, all they have to do is ask for their

I would like to go on record with a complaint about Native Habitat Ethnobotanicals, the worst mail-order experience I have had. They billed my credit card immediately, did not ship when they said they would, finally shipped one plant out of five, and they consistently refused to answer my email requests. I heartily dis-endorse this nursery.
