I don't have the magazine, but I found this : "Garden Crossings was rated as one of the TOP 5 mail-order nurseries by Garden Watchdog, in the January/February 2008 issue of Garden Gate Magazine. In this article written by Jim Childs, Jim spoke with Dave Whitinger of Dave's Garden on the must know mail-order tips. The article pointed out 6 must know tips when ordering plants through a catalog or online. This is a must read for anyone looking to add plants to their garden through a mail-order source this spring."…

From Dave's Garden: "These 30 companies are currently the most highly rated within our entire database. Each of them is listed here because of feedback from their customers."
Antique Rose Emporium: "Out of more than 5,700 mail order gardening companies in the Garden Watchdog, your customer feeback places you among the top 5%"
