Greetings all, from Nanaimo BC... 6 weeks after placing an online order to Henry Fields (Canada) I am still wa-a-a-a-iting for my bare root stock. This in itself is annoying but livable -- it's not like I don't have enough to do around the garden already :-) But what's bothering me is that inquiries to HFCA are ignored; no one answers my emails. I even faxed an inquiry, asking when my plants would ship. No response. Their 877 number is perpetually busy. So I'm starting to wonder... have I placed an order with a notoriously flaky vendor? Or is it just that all MO nurseries are overwhelmed by the sudden resurgence of interest in backyard veggie gardening? Can anyone recommend MO nurseries (my local options are pretty limited and I don't care to drive tens or hundreds of miles to buy a few plants), pref in the Vancouver area or at least in BC, who (a) carry a wide variety of permaculture-suited fruiting shrubs and dwarf trees and (b) are responsive and prompt? Warnings about unreliable vendors would also be welcome :-) Gee this is frustrating. It's getting a bit late in the year for setting out bare root stock, imho. And how can a person schedule vacation, not knowing when a crate of orphan plants may show up on the doorstep? Anyway, I'm wondering whether I've made an error of judgment. OTOH, how can I cancel the order if the company won't acknowledge my email or answer a fax?
