Following are some
of the e-mails received from our happy mail order customers. Thank you to
everyone who took the time to e-mail me.
"Got the plants - fantastic as
It is so exciting to receive beautiful full size plants in the mail."
"Thank you once again for the excellent quality of the plants in my order.
This is my third order from you and I have never been disappointed."
"For those of you
who are gardeners:
I recently ordered
some plants from Canning Perennials (http://www.canningperennials.com/).
I was a little leery as they are not the cheapest mail order company
around, but I must say the plants are worth every dime. They arrived
yesterday. Each plant was healthy and not stressed from the trip.
Each was planted in soil which was wrapped in damp newspaper and tucked
into a heavy-weight plastic bag. I popped them into the ground last
night and today they almost look as if they've never lived anywhere
One of the items I ordered
turned out to be unavailable by the time they received my order. The
proprietor took the time to go out and shop around for me, found one of
good quality, and included it with my order. How many companies will go
I am impressed with a
company that delivers so completely on its promises.
I would recommend you
check out their website and in particular, the online catalogue."
"Just wanted to let you know my plants arrived today. They are awesome and
you did a wonderful job of packing them.
All have been planted in their special place. It turned out to be a
beautiful sunny day today, a perfect planting day. The wind picked up for a
bit and the wind off the ocean was a tad chilly, but I didn't even notice it
as I was so excited about the plants.
Thank you so much,"
"Chris - I have come to expect healthy
plants from your company, but this
last shipment is phenomenal. The size of the box gave me hesitation, I
wondered if I had really ordered that much! The plants are so large and
without exception made the trip with very little shock. Thanks also for
the gift sedum. It's great doing business with you, thanks very much."
"I just wanted to thank you for the
shipment of plants. They arrived early, in good shape (in fact, in VERY
good shape, given the hot day Monday was!) Thanks also for the
extra plants! What a nice treat!
They're all planted now and doing well! It has been a
pleasure shopping from your online store!"
"I just wanted to let you know that the 3 boxes of plants were received
yesterday and planted right away. As always they were in excellent
condition. You would never know that they were in a box for 3 days.
everyone at Canning Perennials -
When we bought our house, the
gardens were completely overgrown and neglected. We have spent the last
year not only fixing up the house, but recovering some of the existing
gardens around our 18 acre property. When the time came for planting the
large, sunny and newly dug bed in front of the house this year, I had to try
Canning Perennials. I have browsed your online catalogue over and over
again and love the interesting selection of plants you provide.
Well, my order arrived a couple
of days ago and I must say, the plants are simply wonderful. I had very
high expectations given the testimonials on the web site but even my high
expectations were exceeded! Not only were the plants I ordered large,
well-rooted and in terrific shape, the Canning Perennial team added in a few
extras to thank me for my order. So not only is your product superior, but
your focus on customer service is second to none.
Thanks to everyone for making my
spring gardening experience so pleasurable and exciting!"
"I received my order today and, as usual, the plants you sent to me are
far superior to anything I order anywhere else. As I think I've said before,
the care taken to select plants of obvious quality and to pack them so
carefully says volumes about you, your staff, and the ethic your company
"Yes, I LOVE ordering from Canning
every year - your plants are always superb, and never die!! Always have
great success with them. I will send you a short e-mail when the two
'HUGE' boxes arrive Canada Post (the driver is gonna love me!)
"Just wanted to let you
know rec'd my plants and everything in order. I'm impressed by the
quality of your stock, your careful packing and your excellent service.
Thank you." Selina
"The plants arrived this morning. They're the most gorgeous, lush, perfectly
healthy plants I've seen in ages! They're out of the box and sitting in the
fresh (warm) air on my back deck. No need to worry about frost here in Windsor
-- the temperature fell all the way down to 16C last night! Thanks for the
great service and the wonderful plants. I can't wait to get out and plant them
"In this busy day and age I have never stopped to write to
a "plant place" like this. But I just HAD to. I have bought mail order plants
from many different suppliers and your plants are BY FAR the biggest and best
quality!!!! I am IMPRESSED!!!"
"I received my order today and I just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with
the climbing hydrangea. The plants are beautiful and larger than I expected.
Thank you so much."
"I am sending this e-mail in regards to the plants I ordered and were sent out
to me on Thursday May 13. I was surprised to receive them so fast, as I got
them Friday morning. When I opened the box to start planting, I was expecting
to see what I have always seen from other mail order plants, which is a dormant
root in peat wrapped in a plastic bag. When I saw what was inside, I was
completely stunned. The plants were beautiful. I never expected plants that
large or well looked after. When I saw the size and condition of the plants,
I felt like I had gone to your place, purchased them and took them home. I was
also very impressed with the care you took to get them to me in good condition.
I was amazed to see that the plants had their own soil, no peat, and that each
plant was wrapped in damp newspaper and then put in a plastic bag and if any of
the plant was outside the plastic bag, that part was also wrapped in damp
newspaper. I was also amazed that there was also damp newspapers put between
each layer of plants, as I had ordered quite a few. I want to thank you for the
beautiful plants I received and to let you know that from now on, I will not
order from any other place but yours, as I couldn't bare getting the dormant
roots again, which other mail order stores send out. The care of the plants
before and after shipping was totally amazing - my congratulations."
Thank you again.
"The last order I placed was received in excellent condition and I was very
pleased. I made a larger garden than I perhaps thought, so I am placing another
order with you. I look forward to receiving it and just want to mention that it
has been a pleasure dealing with you".
"Just wanted to thank you for a wonderful, well-packed
shipment of alot of plants. Your plants are all great and I received them this
morning and planted all this afternoon just before the rain. Thanks once again,
looking forward to the next shipment!"
"The plants were at the Post Office today. All is well. Thank you. Even the
local nursery was quite surprised by what I received."
"Thank you for the order, I picked it up late last night
at the Postal Outlet. This morning, before work, I potted them up for the day,
watered well and they are in the shade until they go into the ground this
evening. . . . The plants look great, I will definitely order again. To be
honest, I thought your prices were a bit high, but after seeing the plants, I
very much understand, they are the largest, ground ready grasses I have ever
" The plants arrived in better shape than many plants at our local nursery.
They are in the ground and show no sign of shock. Thank you," Maria
"My first order from Canning Perennials arrived today. The
plants were in excellent condition and I was very pleased with their size and
