I purchased from Cooleys a few years ago and I was really happy with them, but Schreiners has some I really want and their more expensive, do they send even better plants? How about the Iris patch, has anyone done business with them? Thanks, Cindy
I have never ordered from Cooleys but ordered from Schreiners last year. The plants were fabulous and are almost all blooming this year. I would not hesitate to order.
Both big companies are safe choices, if expensive...
but I prefer to order from:
Mid America gardens (Paul Black, Tom Johnson)
Superstition Gardens (Rick Tasco)
Bay View Gardens (Joe Ghio)
Highest quality and service. If you like AB's or Historics then Superstition is the best place. They all have a great selection of bearded iris.
I ordered from Schreiners several years ago and was very satisfied. Last summer I ordered from them again (for a new garden) and all the iris are now blooming and absolutely spectacular. There are a couple ways to order that will give you a 50% discount on the total. I combined my order with my sister's so it didn't take long to reach the minimum amount to qualify for the 50% discount.
