Mail Order Nurseries and Supplies

As with any Internet or Mail order source for goods and services, caveat emptor. A listing on this website does not represent the endorsement by the California Horticultural Society of any vendor. One should always exercise judgment when ordering anything on the Internet. Although we are not aware of any service yet that lists recommendations of mail order plant sources (like some which exist for photographic equipment, or example), it is suggested that if you are not aware of a firm’s reputation, that you inquire in newsgroups (such as rec.gardens, the Gardenweb forums, or relevant groups at Yahoogroups.com), what has been the experience of others who have ordered from that firm. We have not listed any site that people have reported serious problems with. If you have any problems with a site we have listed, please let us know.
