Beware of mail order scam from House of Wesley

There is a company based in Bloomington, IL that goes under the umbrella of multiple garden mail order nursery names; House of Wesley, Burgess seed, honeycreek nurseries, farmers.

This company is so unethical and disreputable it is shocking. If you have any information or knowledge on how to reach an honest person in any way connected with this company, please let me know.

I placed an order back in March 2006 and it is a nightmare to speak or get anything accomplished with this organization.

I am sorry you got cheated. Before ordering anything, I try to remember to check the Gardenwatchdog first. I sometimes forgot and got sucked in like you did too. Sigh...... :-(

Buy local.

90% of what they send you will die, they will not give you a refund, only a replacement which will also die. I have a small claims judgment against them but they still refuse to refund my money. Legal action, BBB and the rest does not bother this company, they are skirting the law and they know it. This is not an honest or ethical company, and they are a disgrace to the gardening community. TELL YOUR FAMILY & FRIENDS TO BEWARE ALSO.
