Roots & Rhizomes Nursery: Quality Plants?

summerstar(Z7VA)February 16, 2005

What's your experience with this company? They're located in Randolph, WI. I haven't ordered from these people in a very long time. Their prices are quite good, but are the plants I'd receive good quality? Am planting a new perennial bed.

Thanks for your reply, but can you elaborate where I can find the place you suggested? Is it a different website? I checked the forums here on GardenWeb and found no listing for "The Garden Watchdog".

I have ordered from R & R with good results. However I would suggest that you check out as well. I've ordered from several companies in the past 5 years, and Forest Farm has been tops in plants, packaging, and customer service. They offer gallon and "tube" sizes. Since the company is in Oregon, shipping gallon sizes is $$$$, so I've mainly purchased tubes. The plants have been healthy, heavily rooted and ready to go into the garden (after hardening off, of course). Their catalogue doesn't have pictures, but the website does. Good Luck!

I would never again order from Roots and Rhizomes, once is enough! The only good thing they have is a beautiful catalog.
