Default Brian's Botanicals

Hi all,
Just starting new this year in zone 6a and was going to order some bananas and other plants from Brian's Botanicals. I have called and messaged and emailed them and I get no response. Is this normal and have any of you ordered from them before?

Not sure but since you live in zone 6, shipping to your area will probably be risky until april or may. There are plenty of places that sell tropicals if you don't hear back from Brians. (Although I have only heard good things from them so far...)

I've done business with Brian's before and they've always been square shooters.

It is my experience that they do not respond to emails, but, otherwise, are okay.

Maybe, 15 years ago, I received a duplicate shipment from them, by mistake, for free. I emailed them about it and they didn't respond. Remarkably, the quality of plants varied considerably between the two shipments.
