Regarding Southern Perennials.

I placed an order with Southern Perennials over the Internet on June 12th 
of this year.  After many phone calls, I finally received my order last 
week.  One plant was not available, something I didn't find out until the 
plants arrived (I was told on the phone that everything I ordered was still 
available).  The plants arrived in good shape, but after such a long wait, 
I doubt that I will ever order from them again.

SP&H told me that my order had been shipped in early July but must have 
gotten lost in the mail (they do not use UPS).  What has soured me on using 
Southern Perennials is the fact that I felt like I had to harass them to 
get my plants.  I sent them email messages but did not get a response.   I 
called and left messages that weren't returned.  When I was able to speak 
with the owner, I was told that they were having employee problems.  They 
sure didn't have any problems charging my credit card, the charge was on my 
July bill!

Needless to say, I will stick with Plant Delights, Niche Gardens and 
Munchkin Nursery from now on.
