bonfield I was thinking about buying a jacq from there. How was there packaging? They also provide a description of medium. I was wondering how accurate the size discription was. Thanks.
I should be receiving my plants tonight... I placed a nice sized order and was quite impressed with Tails and Scales sending me an email with a bunch of photos showing the plants I ordered. Looks like decent sizes compared to others' sizing categories. For example I received an extra small from one supplier and the plant was about the size of my thumbnail. T&S's photo show a good size for their "extra small". I've attached some photos they had sent me yesterday:
Thanks flytrap ! That's an impressive sized "extra small" hamata
The shipment arrived yesterday. The FedEx "overnight" took 4 days to deliver. And yup. I was a bit worried as we had frost and light freezing. I'm quite pleased with the way Tails and Scales packed and packaged all the plants. Nicely and professionally prepared.
And yes, the hamata was nicely sized for "extra small". The large sized plants were at least 8" tall, a nice surprise as other nursery's "large" were about 3 to 4" tall.

bonfield: I'll be ordering some highland seeds, but the vendor is closer to you, so it will probably be faster/cheaper for you to order separately, I'll message you with the details

bonfield: I may get a couple listings up tonight, but most will be slowly added over the week-end. I'm taking my time, and a few things still need to be untangled

bonfield: I'm not sure I even feel like shipping this year after how relatively stress-free the walk-in sales have been, so there is still a chance they're just not happening
