As an experienced gardener, I rarely have a problem with plants purchased from nurseries including online ones. Not so with Talbott Nursery. Do not buy from this Nursery unless you want dead plants, no guarantee, and a diminished bank account.
The end result of my $85.35 three Flame Bougainvillea 1-gallon size order, is one rather spindly plant in my backyard, surviving, I hope.
The order even said that I was sent one 3-gallon and two 2-gallon; however, the 2-gallon ones had no roots which meant they never did show any sign of life, even though all directions were followed as to soaking overnight, planting in a pot for three weeks, etc.
My query as to what to do was met with the response from Talbotts that "sometimes plants just die for no reason," with no attention paid to my complaint that there was no root system on two of the plants.
I was offered two plants at half off and would have to pay shipping. Of course I declined the offer having gone to the local nursery and purchased two 2-gallon Flame Bougainvillea with root balls that filled the pots ($11.95 each). They are vigorously growing while the one surviving Talbott plant is limping along.
I should have paid more attention to previous negative reviews.

Do not deal with this guy.
He knows everything and you know nothing. He cares nothing about how you feel or your customer experience.
I sent him an email which I thought was nice and reaching out to him in what I would call a civil and friendly manner.
I wasn't happy about the tree I ordered. I expressed how I felt in what I thought might help his future mailings of plants based on my experience with several other excellent nurseries.
Boy was that a mistake. Let's just say this teacher went nuclear on me. Very angry and chastising.
Knows it all, has nothing to learn and you the customer are stupid, ignorant and on and on.
Quite frankly he assumed I didn't follow instructions, threw the package in the garbage and so on and so forth. Really quite unprofessional and just an angry condescending man.
Wow! Do yourself a favor and stay away.

Sent me a diseased citrus tree (frost hardy) then said it looked like frost damage so not his problem. All dealings were creepy. Ultra negative and was a very expensive lesson.

I ordered a Bougainvillea bare root "plug" which arrived to me appearing completely dead: all brown with NO green on it. I figured it was "dormant" because they described it as a "bare root". I followed their instruction sheet to the smallest detail. This plant was DOA - DEAD ON ARRIVAL; I know this is true, because I ordered another one, which arrived with some green growth on it and that appears to be growing fine. BOTH plants are in the same pot, same soil, with same nutrients. I contacted this company and they HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO GUARANTEE on the dead plant they shipped to me. Furthermore, they insinuated I did not follow the instructions after I told them INDEED I had - AND to the smallest detail. They sent me a dead plant and they will not supply a live one. My caution to buyers: BAD business.
