Lon & the rest,

Yes, I've had trouble w/ nurseries too, mostly herbaceous plant places.

The one which never sent nor refunded $100+ worth of plants I bought was one 
which was family-owned and the manager suffered some long illness.  But as 
far as I ever knew, the recovered or new manager didn't make much effort to 
backtrack the outstanding accounts.

Other troubles have been from places I've worked at-- or TRIED to work at !  
It amazes me these places can stay in business, they way they treat their 
employees & customers !  And much of the activity was technically legal !
