Tellys is great! I drive over 30 miles at least 4 times a year to go here. The staff are all friendly and if they don't know something, they will ask and find out. They are sometimes, a little too helpful. I just tell them, I will ask if I need them. They have some different plants you will not find anywhere else. Sandy

I have been shopping at Telly's for several years now and even though I could go to three other nursery's (one of them English Gardens) that are much closer - I now go to Telly's almost exclusively. The $2.00 perennials are without question the best deal in town. I have removed almost all of my front lawn and replaced it with gardens and could not have done so without Telly's $2.00 perennials. Losing a perennial that just didn't make it in the spot I picked because the soil wasn't quite right, or there was a bit too much or too little sun was really depressing when I was paying $7.99 to $21.99 (and up) for the plant. At $2.00 - if I screw up - I'm over it. The year after planting those inexpensive little gems - they are big and beautiful and would go for the high price I used to pay. And while I'm talking about prices - the annual flat prices were equal to the flat prices at Home Depot and lower than at any other nursery. Trees and shrubs - which I buy one or two of yearly are considerably cheaper at Telly's. The staff at Telly's is very knowledgeable and helpful but if you don't want help - simply tell them you just are looking around. The woman who made the remark about "not everyone needing a perennials for dummies" book - I have never found anyone at Telly's to be overbearing or trying to "sell" me anything. I think this is the best nursery in town if what you want is plants. If you want statues, yard art, planters, patio furniture - then you'll need to go elsewhere.

I've been going to Telly's for years and overall have had a very positive experience. If I want the unusual and hard to find plants, I go to Telly's. Prices are on the high side, but Telly's has plants, both tender and perennial, I can't find anywhere else. I travel all over the country and visit nursery and garden centers everywhere I go. This is one of the best. However, this is not the place I go to buy flats of annuals, unless I'm looking for something special. I love the vast selection of perennials and experimenting with tender plants I don't normally find. My experience with live plants from most of the mail order houses is high cost and very small plants. Here I can see and select what I want, getting more value for my money. Spring of 2007 was very cold and out of the norm. Judging Telly's negatively from one so-so experience is a mistake.

I visited Tellys the beginning of May and I was disappointed with their perennials. I don't know if it was because of the beginning of the season, but the perennials looked what I call (trashed), leaves browned, withered, pots filled with moss, and the gallon plants were only a couple of inches high. Looks like they keep all their perennials outside, no shelter, maybe that is the problem. I did not buy a single perennial. In the good side, when I went inside to where the annuals were, I found many unusual varieties for sale which I found were in much better condition. A new trailing coleus and a fuschia with lime green leaves with dark pink/red veins. Not sure what color the flowers are, it was not posted. I found it annoying that while I was browsing the perennials, an employee kept telling me what the names of the plants were. Not all of us need "perennials for dummies". I did not ask for her help other than to ask if Telly's carried the new variety of cone flower "Green Envy" for 2007. (They did not carry it.)

We went to this nursery last summer for the first time. One of the things I liked about it was the small pots of perrenials--more plants for less money. Plants are well cared for and staff is very nice.
