    Where do you guys order your flowers from? I have ordered from House of Wesley/Burgess in the past but after reading their overwhelming negative reviews I am nervous to order from them again. I would like to order a bunch of perennials to stuff my flower beds with. Burgess is appealing because of their prices but not if your plants don't survive or you don't ever get them. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I ordered 50 strawberry plants from Gurney's and got them about a month ago. I was expecting the worst after the stuff I had read about them also and when they arrived have of them looked awful. I planted all of them anyways and I haven't lost a single one. Also believe it or not the ones that looked the worst when I got them now look the best and all of them are starting to bloom. So I would suggest Gurney's.

    For the price I think I will take your advice and go with my previous experience. Most of my flowers from 3 years ago did pretty good and my strawberries from them did amazing. Don't know that I would order trees from them but I guess I'll take my chances with flowers from them again. I can't afford nursery stock and prices to fill my planters.
