Curious to know if anyone has ordered from Fraser's Thimble Farms and had any comments on quality? They have a nice selection of bulbs and Orchids.
Yes, I have a couple of times, but not bulbs and orchids, and not recently, so it's probably not too relevant.
I hope someone else can relate his/her experience.

yes I order from them routinely. The quality of the plants are generally good. But few times got plants that are too small.
one of the sunniest cities in Canada.
Temperature range +30C to -38C.
average annual precipitation 347.2mm.
We have ordered from them a few times. Quality is a mixed bag. Some plants are a good size and worth the money. some come in as very tiny things that very often don't make it. I found their fern collection offer very good. Can't remember the details- pick 12 ferns, they send 10 for $50--I think? Larger ferns have been a good size.

I have never bought through the mail, but take the ferry over to Saltspring several times a year. I like to choose plants in flower.
