I live about 45 driving miles from their former location and had been a retail customer of theirs since about 1968. Most years, I visited them in the spring and fall to buy replacement tubers. After the fire, they didn\'t have family members interested in carrying on the retail business, and their land had become too valuable for development of homes. I do miss visiting their retail location. I never had anything but positive experiences with them. This year is the first time I\'ll be using their web site for ordering tubers, both upright and hanging basket. I think June Bug larva got to my tubers last year. I suggest treating the soil for them.

Five years ago i ordered all hanging basekets and they shipped me all uprights. I called and they cleared up this issue immed and sent me what i ordered and told me to keep the wrong order. I am saddened by Antonelli Brothers not re-opening their retail store as I had many memories petting "their infamous begonia smasher (CAT)" while stopping at their store when traveling to and from the coast, but suspect this has become a more home based business for the family...
