Flowers From The Heart
I called Dee's Lynn's Floral, because Gaines Floral no longer had the Easter Lilly's on the stem. These flowers when they bloom has the most incredible smell that you've ever smelled. I started to Florist shop down the list. I called Dee's Lynn's Floral Designs. I was really surprised that she had ANY Lilly's. She didn't have the "Easter Lilly" per say, but she had Star Gaser Lilly's on the stem. These smell SO incredible, and I was way lucky to find these on the day before Easter. When I told her what I wanted, she quoted me a price and as the bouquet got bigger, the price didn't. She is ONE of THREE certified Florists in the whole State of Montana!!!! THAT in itself was really something that shocked me. I guess I need really thought about whether or not a Florist is certified or not. But that wasn't what convinced me to only order from her in the future. She has a WONDERFUL sense of humor, easy to talk to, knowledgeable about what I wanted and she had never met me. She also loves The Walking Dead!!! Now who can go wrong with all of that? But that wasn't it either. She started to talk about what she was going to put in my bouquet and even though she was possibly rushed for time, I did not feel rushed. I told her that I would send my Husband and she offered to deliver for FREE!!!! Now ALL of that is enough for me to be a loyal customer for the rest of my.... or her life!!! Give her a call. I also want to say that the reason that she even had Lilly's isn't because she doesn't have many clients, it's because she plans ahead. THAT in itself is SUPER!!! Thank you Dee. I can't wait to get my bouquet.

Heights Ace Hardware
I called Heights Ace Hardware for a chest freezer and they did not have it in stock. Doug took my name and number and called me back with the info he found out. He talked to me and try to help solve my problem. He went above and beyond to help me. I strongly recommend this store. In our big corporate world we live in this is the best customer service out there. THANKS HEIGHTS ACE HARDWARE����

Tips & Advices
Yes, many nurseries ship plants and trees, but inter-state shipping regulations are complex and strict, and nurseries must be in compliance regardless of whether that disallows a customer order. Also, even if items are allowed to ship, they might not survive if outside the proper USDA growing zones--in which case a nursery might try to discourage the customer from placing the order.
The ease of caring for fruit trees varies according to where you live, but lemon trees and apple trees are widely considered easy to grow. Pear trees are fast-growing but need to be planted alongside another pear variety to bear fruit. Stone fruit trees, especially cherries and plums, are popular in regions with defined seasons and cool winters.  In hot/humid regions, banana trees (producing small varieties of banana) and mango trees are known as “fast fruiters” that require little care.
Plant Hardiness Zones are the government-researched standard geographical breakdown of broad climate regions across the United States. The USDA has created a map of the United States, which includes 11 planting zones. This map helps gardeners determine what to plant when, based on accumulated weather data. Factors like soil quality and microclimates are not accounted for in the USDA Plant Hardiness Zones, and should certainly be taken into consideration as well.
Perennial plants and trees grow anew each spring, and are dormant in the winter. Annuals have a lifespan of only one growing season, and need to be replanted each year.
Evergreen is a term for plants and trees that keep some green foliage year-round. While the term “evergreen” is closely associated with pine trees, many other types of trees are also evergreen, including live oak, blue spruce, eucalypts, and most of the coniferous cousins of pine.
