Thumbs down


not happy at all. placed an order 2 weeks ago (im in canada) selected the canadian pricing from a handy drop down menu, assuming they could ship plants to canada. nope, they don't. did they answer my email asking why i was paying crazy high shipping and i hadn't received it yet? nope. has anyone called to tell me they couldn't ship plants to canada? nope. did my payment go through? you know it did. that being said, i made a phone call and the payment was returned to me within minutes. all the same very dissapionted.

who can recommend good canadian companies with a good selection?

Yeah I used to order wholesale from them for the shop I work at. Very bad shipment times and poor customer service. They messed up a $700 plant order and didn't even apologize for it. There response was "your a business, you know how it goes." ....I fired them shortly after. If im not mistaken there is a plant specific lfs in Canada that has a good repore. Order through them, im sure they have good quality and supporting a local business is always good.

good luck bud, being in Alaska I know how difficult logistics can be.

Sorry to hear that. I've had the total opposite experience, but I am in the US. I will agree that their shipping prices are a little high.
