My first order for trailer AV's arrived in fine shape last fall. Some starters are blooming now. Over all I am satisfied with my purchase.

I placed my order on July 3rd and received it September 14. Not exactly timely. I did get a lot of cuttings where I had indicated plants, but for the most part I received everything I had ordered and no subs were sent.
Plants/cuttings arrived healthy and bug free that I can see. And I'm happy with what was sent.

I think this is a mom and pop operation and communication isn't the best. Phoning got quicker results than email for me.

Another thing to note is that I placed my order right about the time that the country had a heat wave and they wont ship when it's that hot. So considering that, I understand a delay.

Overall, I would recommend them, but call them FIRST, email doesn't seem to be a priority.

I ordered 3 espicia plants by phone on August 17th. I spoke with a lady named Jeanne, and she told me straight away that one of the plants I was looking for was not available. She made a suggestion as to what would be a good substitute. I made sure my credit card wouldn't be charged until the order shipped. I was told that it would take a few weeks for me to get my order, but I actually received my plants on August 24th (exactly one week later). I had asked to have an e-mail sent when the order shipped, so I could be on the lookout. The e-mail was sent the day after the order shipped.

I just received the plants today. They are of a good size, they all have small stolens on them and they look healthy. I don't see any obvious signs of disease or insects. They were packed in plastic bags, with damp sphagnum moss around the roots, and the roots wrapped in saran wrap. I did not receive one of the plants I asked for, (they made a substitution) but I did receive a total of 5 plants and only paid for 3. The website lists the shipping and handling as $7.50, but Jeanne said that they have raised the shipping rates. However, they charged me the rate that was listed on the website.

I realize this company has had several negatives posted, but for me the overall experience was good. I will probably order from them again.

The worse nursery I have dealt with. I placed an order by email and straight away was asked credit card details, without giving me the total. After giving my number to them they just ignored my phone call and emails.

I decided to cancel my order. Never again will be ordering from them.

On July 24th, 2008, Spider07 changed the rating from negative to positive and added the following:

Well, i decided to give Belisles another try and ordered 4 streps from them.

They are the biggest, healthiest streps I have ever bought online.

The shipping was also very fast and I got a lovely episcia as a gift.

I changed my mind and will be shopping there again.

My experience was wonderful with this business. I had heard allot of good about them on the net and so decided to try them out. I ordered a catalog and it arrived in a timely manner. I ordered and was very satisfied with the streptocarpus leaves I received. Nice healthy and no unwanted critters tagging along! I will order from them again next year but this time it will be for plants because they passed the leaf test with flying colors!

Thank you Belisle's for the wonderful service you provide!
