In order to be listed, providers must have received a minimum of five positive comments, from personal experience and not hearsay. If negative comments have been received, two positive comments for each negative comment (in addition to the original five positive) must have been received to be listed.

We have asked that the comments to be based on the following criteria, listed in what we believe to be order of importance:

Does XYZ provide plants true to name?
Is plant condition good on receipt?
Has the service been as promised?
In the case of an error, has it been dealt with promptly and courteously?
Would you order or purchase from XYZ again?

Not being included on this list could be that too few reports have been received for inclusion OR that too many negative comments have been received. If you'd like to contribute to this compilation, write, providing your verifiable name and address, a brief description of your overall experience with water gardening, and your input on specific sources. Comments are completely confidential. Contributors may have no vested interest in suppliers included in their comments.
