Some customer reviews were:

"The order was placed in mid April of this year. The order did not arrive in a reasonable amount of time, so I contacted customer service, and was told me that the order had been shipped weeks before I had called. But, I had not received the order...."

"Ordered plants in June 2012. My credit card was charged, but no merchandise was shipped- this is illegal under federal law. I inquired several times was was told either my order was just about to ship and in the shipping dept, or that they were waiting for more plants from the grower. Subsequently cancelled the order, but was told it may take 1-2 weeks to cancel it, so it may ship anyways. Unbelievably, I received part of the order in less than a week. Had to refuse the package, and dispute the credit card charge with my bank.--do not buy from Direct Gardening"

"The delivery I received last week was in horrible shape. The carnation was still mostly green, but the "daisy" was a bunch of completely dried plant material. One of the [2] rose plants had the main root snapped off right at the base of the trunk. Overall a completely unsatisfactory experience."

"Never ever buy stuffs from them!!!I should have done some research before I placed order.I just looked at the attractive price and didn't think anything else.I placed the order in March when is still winter here ,and till May I still hadn't got my order yet.I called them once a week to check,every time I got the same answer "they are at ship department and will be shipped out any time"

I am also getting the run around and can't even get them to cancel my order and refund my money, it was 2 weeks from date of placing order till they took the money out of my account and several messages later and 4 weeks later still no plants I had to go to the nursery and buy plants before every thing was gone. I can't get any one to answer when I attempt to call and emails are a joke. I don't have money to waste since my husband is injured and not working so to have to buy stuff twice is not good. I thought since I am a member of the gardening club of america and this is a recommended site of theirs that I would give them a try. NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!! People just go to the greenhouse or one of the other catalogs like Burpees or such at least you get timely service and not someone stealing your money.
