Miller's or Nourse?

I'm going to order some strawberry plants... Mara des Bois. I see Miller has them for hald the price of Nourse-- but I also know sometimes some sources are worth that extra money. Any opinions? Thanks!

I've never gotten a bad anything from Nourse. First class operation. Miller seems OK, I've ordered a few times from them.

Julianna, with that price difference I would still go with Nourse. Nourse is one of the very best and Millers is one of the most average places.

OK, thanks you guys! That is what I was gathering by looking online. A good nursery makes all the difference!

I ordered many plants from Miler in the past. I never had any problem with Miller. Their trees are very decent size and condition when arrived. I have never tried Nourse so can't offer comments.

O G, what nurseries have you ordered from before that you are comparing Millers to? Millers used to sell the tiniest trees imaginable.

just received my third order from Nourse in five years. Great quality and service. quality doesn't cost more than it saves.

haven't ordered from Miller.

Just received my second order of "Mara des Bois" today. They are perfect! I planted all fifty this afternoon. Norse is great in my book; have been ordering from them for the past four years. Mrs. G
