According to Garden Watchdog, both of those companies were given good ratings by 4 people each.

Also, Bluestone perennials has some OG, and they are my favorite.

We purchase grasses from Kurt Bluemel (wholesale), and I think Earthly Pursuits is their retail store, or at least some connections. We have always gotten good product from Kurt Bluemal. A small plug of grass will grow quickly into a large specimen, and at a better price than the large pots. Polly

I purchased mine from mail order nurseries, and they were in excellent condition, and have grown beautifully.

Limerock is a highly reputable source. The Magic Garden in upstate NY, with only a few grasses, is also. Both ship quality, healthy plants. Both ship in pots.

Why the excessive use of question marks in your post?

I buy grasses online from Santa Rosa Gardens and have been very very happy with their selection, price and customer service.

Using a credit card is by far the safest way to pay online from any website.

Going through PayPal is even more secure, many sites now use PayPal.

Avoid the temptation to use your bank account through them or debit cards. They do not provide the consumer protections that come with credit cards. PayPal's Buyer Protection is only 45 days, you want the protection of your card which is usually 90 and sometimes six months.
