Some plants you just can’t find locally. There are so many edibles I want to have around our homestead… most of which I have come to discover no local nurseries carry. It seems my only option is ordering either via mail-order or online.
But how can I trust an online company to deliver quality products? How do I know if I’m working with a good business or not?
Fortunately, I stumbled upon Dave’s Garden- Garden Watchdog. Here you will find a list of reputable nurseries, and can look up any potential companies you are considering ordering from to see what other customers have said about them.
Don’t just place your order with anybody. After reading dozens of reviews, I’ve come to the realization that not all nurseries and plants are created equally. Some plants come with diseases. Some come months and months later, and some don’t come at all. So do your research!!
Anyone have a particular online or catalog nursery you have been very pleased ordering from? I’d love to know who your go-to is!
