Where to buy

Posted by fernaly z7 AL (My Page) on

I recently bought several impatiens and other plants from a mail order company. Every plant arrived with the tiniest root system and every single plant had what looked like powdery mildew. Most of them died a swift death but one iochroma and one impatien are still trying to hold on.

I always quarentine my new plants so this hasn't spread to my other plants and I know that it didn't come from my plants. Anyway, needless to say, I won't be ordering from this company again, but what is a good company to order from?

Maybe you can find some great firms on my site.


Here is a link that might be useful: ABC Impatiens

RE: Where to buy

You can find some on my web-site as well. The places with the biggest sellection is Annie's Annuals and Kartuz's Greenhouses here in the states. Egil has a good collection of species as well as well as other European sources. I am doing my best to get more species out there. Plantdelights well be selling some more as well but these are mostly hardy Impatiens. If you can get to Wales or know someone who can for you try Crug Farm plants they are a good selection of Impatiens they have collected in the wild. On Ebay Jeff's Strange and Wonderful Things sells Impatiens and he is always looking for more from me.

RE: Where to buy

Thanks Guys, I searched both site and think I am going to try Annie's. I hope I have better luck with this compay.

Kartuz is the company my first order came from. They have a great selection, but the plants I received were small and the root systems were too immature and then to top it off, they had powdery mildew. $89 worth of plants, gone.
