For almost the entire year, Gee Farms has not had a downloadable catalog on their website...are they having problems?

Lordie, if I were them, I'd rather have email than a phone anyday...less demanding when you're busy. But, different strokes for different folks.

I can definitely call, not a big deal…but I prefer email/web ordering for a few reasons:
1-giving a credit card number over the phone is a pain in the you-know-what
2-many scientific names I can spell correctly, but am afraid if I try to pronounce them, I’ll sound like an idiot
3-faster
4-less chance of mishearing one another

There are too many sources to dink around with calling a business to see what they have....unless they are local.

Lost sales if you ask me.

If you end up getting stuff from Gee stick with 3 gallon plants. At the time I bought from them, their stuff is under sized, which is techncially a good thing as they are dillegent with uppotting.

Most their 1 gallon plants are actually 1 year or 2 year grafts...again good for roots but at $30 to $45 for a 1 year graft that isn't necessarily that rare is not my cup of tea.

My go to sources...

Conifer Kingdom - 1 gallon and ban pots are the way to go. Easy ordering

Western Evergreen - Any size all day. Need patience for ordering as its confiramtion/check style

Coenosium - Bob is honest enough to call out what is small and prices accordingly. Need patience as its confirmation style but paypal is a payment type.

Those three sources cover 90% of my needs as a casual collector.

Otherwise Stanley and Sons offers the best pricing in the market BUT there are minimums (ie 15 4" pots) and the stock is completely hit or miss. I usually keep half the material and give away or sell the other half at a lower price...as I take a pic of the plant to be honest of its runt qualities.
