I have placed several orders with this company and I have gotten exactly what I expected. So far the plant specimens have all been in good shape and grown well.
On September 1st, 2011, Johnboy369 added the following:
Since I just placed another order with this company I felt it was time to comment again. My most recent order prior to this was lost by USPS. The tracking system showed it being received and processed by the facility in Connecticut mutiple times(three or four). When it did finally arrive the plants were dead and dry. Even though the problem wasn't Logee's fault, they promptly replaced the order without argument. That's a win in my book. Thanks!

Another great shipment from Logee's. These plants have been on my wanted list for years, but I couldn't get them until I built my greenhouse. The Sweet Almond Verbena even has flowers on it. Awesome!

I have ordered a number of plants from Logee's over the last three or four years, and their service has always been glitch-free for me. As I look around my house and yard, however, I can't help but notice that most of the plants I've bought from them have not survived for long. They seem to arrive in good shape. That's not really the problem. They just don't always live very long -- a few months maybe, sometimes a year. I still have a Hoya, a Tahitian Orange tree, a dwarf Lemon tree, a very sad-looking African Gardenia, and a couple things that I've bought in the last couple months, but many plants that I've ordered from them in the past are no longer alive. Maybe they just sell species that are sensitive and die easily, but maybe the individual plants they sell just aren't the hardiest around. I don't know what the problem is (hence my neutral rating). I look around and see that plants I bought at Home Depot (e.g., a Jasmine that was in serious distress when I bought it) and from Park's Gardens (including a dwarf banana tree that has produced numerous suckers that I've been able to remove and pot up on their own) have survived better than plants I bought from Logee's. Considering how expensive Logee's is in comparison to Home Depot and Park's Gardens, I'd frankly expect better from them.
On May 12th, 2013, gsteinbe changed the rating from neutral to negative and added the following:
After years of not ordering from Logee's, I still get catalogs from them. The latest catalog that I got included a promotion: get $15 off any order of $75. I went to Logee's website and put a Goji Berry, a Sourwood Tree, and a Meiwa Kumquat into my shopping cart. The shopping cart total was $74.85 for just those three plants. So, I was just $0.15 away from $75. But I didn't really want to buy anything else. I emailed Logee's to see if they would extend the promotion to me, since I was only $0.15 short of the necessary total. They sent me a terse email that simply said, "Unfortunately, the promo code will not work unless $75.00 or more is spent on merchandise." Yes, that's unfortunate indeed. For them.
I emptied my shopping cart and bought the Sourwood and Goji Berry elsewhere. I'm having trouble finding a Meiwa Kumquat anywhere else, but frankly, I don't have to have one right this minute. So, I'll wait until somebody else has one available. It'll probably be considerably cheaper than Logee's anyway (as were the Sourwood Tree and Goji Berry). Legally, Logee's didn't have to give me the promotion. I'm well aware of that. I was $0.15 short of the necessary total. But they apparently care more about that $0.15 than they do about the $74.85 (minus the $15 promotion but plus shipping) that I was willing to spend. If they don't care about losing $74.85 in sales over $0.15, then I don't feel any inclination to buy anything from them again.

|I ordered 4 plants from this company about a week ago. The shipment of my plants arrived in two days. They were 2 Bouvardia longiflora, 1 Ipomoea andersonii and 1 Gardenia coronata.
The Gardenia was not healthy looking. Most of the leaves were drooping and looked dessicated.. Some showed a brownish discoloration at the leaf tips. I thought at first it simply needed water, but I felt the soil and it was moist. My next thought was that the plant was not adequately rooted, so I put it in a glass enclosure to see if it would perk up. It hasn't so far. It looks worse. Some of the leaves have turned a ghastly gray color, though I am sure it is not a fungus or anything of that sort. Instead maybe, it is cold damage?
I think I will be happy with the other, healthy looking plants, but not with what appears to be a dying gardenia. It was intended to be a gift and was the primary reason I placed an order with Logee's.

|My experience with Logee's has been wonderful. The plants are well-packed when shipped. They are also prompt in answering my e-mails. I ordered two Miracle Fruit plants in December, and they are doing very well. They were growing so large that I was advised to transplant into non-glazed terra cotta pots. I did so two weeks ago and they are thriving. I can hardly wait to get my berries. Thank you, Logee's.

|I received my order of eight begonias and am very happy with the size of the plants and the care they took in packaging my shipment.
Of the eight plants received, all arrived looking fabulous with the exception of one, the leaves were all gone from the travel experience. I will give it a couple of weeks to see if the plant comes back for the healthy root system, and if not, I will contact the company for the replacement of the one plant "Begonia Buttercup"
I will definitely place more orders with Logee's....very, very please.

|I agree with some of the comments that Logee's plants are quite expensive. However, in my several orders to them, all the plants arrived in great condition, very well packaged, good size, and are all growing well. It's also true, as mentioned, that they carry plants that cannot easily be found anywhere else, which is the main reason I started ordering from the.m

|I ordered eight edible plants that I cannot find in any local nurseries: a dwarf maher star fruit, two different dwarf mulberries, two honeyberry plants, a china blue vine, an australian beach cherry, and a miracle fruit. My plants arrived yesterday, and I am very pleased with the quality of the plants I received.
The plants were packaged incredibly well, packed very tight and wrapped with sturdy paper so they could not move and be damaged, and were still moist upon arrival. Only the star fruit showed any sort of distress from taking the long trip from Connecticut to California, and it is already perked up after escaping its box. All plants were of good size for mail-ordered plants.
I will order from Logee's again. Their selection of hard to find edibles is hard to beat.

|Most orders are fine but for a few I could never get the foliage on some plants to look like the catalog photos. For example, there are Rex begonias for sale with sharply contrasting leaf color variations. What the catalog shows as white, on my plants has proven to be a dull light green, no matter what light exposure I have tried. The same is true of the recently ordered "Peacock Plant. There is no white showing in the foliage while the catalog clearly shows white. I asked Logees if they used photo enhancement for catalog pictorials and they denied that was their practice. Perhaps my skills are deficient, but I must wonder about those catalog images as being accurate depictions of the product.

I've been a Logee's customer for over a decade (maybe two) and I've come to see it as an unfortunate habit. I certainly don't regret all my purchases--but like others--I feel that their plants are not as robust or well established as those of competitors such as Almost Eden. And--their descriptions of plants are designed to seduce the credulous (like me) and are often somewhat-indirectly- dishonest. They sell, as houseplants, some plants that are not generally reccommended for the house. They never mention that a given plant is vulnerable to a common pest--and they imply that the home gardener will be rewarded with buckets of fruit from plants that are not likely to fruit at all-or rarely- in the house. And-I feel that the quality of their plants has grown worse in the last few years. So-I'm trying to stop-but that catalog still can get me.
On October 16th, 2012, mcsnail changed the rating from neutral to negative and added the following:
Well--after trying fruitlessly (so to speak) to grow Logee's citrus in my house--I gave up. I spent ALOT of money on Meyer's lemons, key limes, finger limes--and on and on. The only one that survived more than a year was a Kaffir lime. Many bit the dust after a few months-often prey to bugs. I figured that conditions in my house were too unfavorable. And then-against my better judgement I bought a Meyer's lemon from a local nursery. It cost $22 and was healthy and flowering. After at least 18 months--including a brutal Winter and Summer-- it is flourishing--and not a bug has come near it. 6 little lemons are on it now and it is big and healthy. I thought back on all the plants from Logee's that died (I recall an etrog that was about 2 inches tall and didn't seem to have a root system. It died in two weeks). I have probably wasted nearly $1000 on plants that never should have been mailed out. Its pretty infuriating.

|I placed an order on July 10 and didn't receive any information after the initial order confirmation. I would check their website and everything in my order was "in progress". Finally, I called this morning to inquire and was told it was too hot to ship to Texas. I cancelled the order. By the way, I just checked their website and my order is still listed as "in progress" and not "cancelled".
I can accept that Logee's feels it is too hot to risk shipping live plants. However, the lack of communication was very frustrating. A simple email saying that my order would not be shipped until temps were lower would have gone a long way in easing the frustration I feel with the company right now. I understand they have made a change to the website that makes this policy clearer but it came too late in my case.
I have ordered from Logee's before and probably will in the future now that I am more familiar with their shipping policies. Sigh. I was really looking forward to the scented geraniums.

|Even though I am a young guy, I am currently going to school to get a Horticulture Technician degree. I know lots of plants when I see them and from my experience with Logee's obviously they are making lots of cash! For what do you ask? Small tiny plants that are shipped at the stated shipping price but honestly, whomever it is that knows how to create a new plant from whatever species it is must be smarter than a genious. I'm literally serious. I've ordered from them before but from my intuition, I don't really think that these plants I ordered were considered 'real' in my mind.

|I placed an order from Logee's Greenhouse on June 2nd, and I still haven't received my Hoya Lauterbachii. At first, I was told it was too hot to ship, now they just aren't responding to my emails. It shouldn't take this long to ship 1 hoya. Of course they already took the money from my credit card. Has anyone else had this problem with them?
August 2nd, 2012
WOW, Logee's is telling me they haven't sent my plant because of the temps in AZ. They don't want to ship unless the temp is under 100 degrees???? I told them, I receive plants all summer long from other places and haven't had any problems.
If I can get cuttings from Thailand/Sweden during the summer and they arrive in good condition, why can't I get plants from Conn? That's the biggest crap I've heard in a long time. Our temps for the past 2 weeks has been between 100 - 102. They should list that information on the website and give people an option of wheather or not they want to order. Don't charge my credit card if you can't send the product. This is my last time ordering from Logee's!!!!!

We apologize for disappointing you. I do want to ensure you that we try to do everything that we can to provide healthy plants to our customers. We have found that when temperatures are below 34 or above 100 many of our customers received plants that are damaged or have died. We therefore hold shipments to states where the temperatures are above 100 degrees. Typically this is only for a few states for a few weeks, unfortunately this summer seems to be particularly hot as there are several states that have been outside that range for over a month and currently there are 6 that are too hot. This is not to say that some deliveries would not arrive safely, but last year when we tried shipping to some states that were between 100 and 105, we had nearly a quarter of the customers call back with damaged plants.
After your phone call yesterday we immediately met to discuss how better to inform customers of the heat related shipping issue. We decided to take the small note that was on the left side of our checkout page that stated which areas were too hot and moved it to the bottom of the page right above the “Place Order” button. We also added a note specifying 100 degrees, rather than just “too hot.” Hopefully this will avoid other customers from having the same frustration that you had.

I have been wanting to purchase an avocado tree for quite sometime but the cost has always been more than I wanted to pay until I came across a "Day" avocado for sale at Logee's website. I did an internet search on this particular variety of avocado and thought "go for it" - the tree and shipping was $42.00. The tree arrived in a large box but the actual tree was half the size of the box. Imagine my dissappointment as I opened the box! On top of that I had to immediately transplant the little tree because the potting soil was full of bugs. I order plants frequently online but this was a first. I typically like to transplant a week or two later to give the plant a chance to recover from the stress of being shipped accross country. I read the reviews at this forum before purchasing and was pretty confident that I was going to get a nice tree. Everyday I look at my little "Charlie Brown" tree and think what a waste of money. The full priced avocado tree might be worth the risk but believe me when I say stay away from the "sale" priced avocado tree.
On August 1st, 2012, gandyman33 changed the rating from negative to positive and added the following:
I was contacted by Logee's Customer Service regarding my dissappointment and a replacement tree was sent. The replacement was a bigger and nicer tree. I am completely satsified and I appreciate that fact they went out of their way to provided exceptional customer service. The Logee catalog is filled with a huge variety of plants and trees so I can definitely see a future purchase. I have no reservation about recommending them to other gardners - good customer service is ultimately what we expect and deserve for our hard earned money! Thanks Logee's!!!

We apologize for your disappointment. We've looked over our records and do not see that you contacted us about your disappointment. We sent a D-mail to you, please contact us directly so that we can resolve this issue to your satisfaction.
The Day Avocado that you received, even though "sale" priced, should have been a good one. However, as a mail-order nursery we do tend to have smaller plants than local nurseries to keep shipping costs lower. Our current Day Avocado's are between 16-20" above the soil line which is on the small side (sometimes they are as tall as 2-3'), but we always try to send healthy, strong plants regardless of the height.

|I have ordered from Logee's for years. I just received two Clivia minatas from them and could not be happier. I repotted them up one pot size as they recommended, and the roots were impressive. Both plants were substantial plants for the price I paid. They are a reliable source for tropical plants that one will rarely find locally.

|I have had mixed experiences with Logee's. Some years the plants are okay, others they're not. More often than not, the plants I have wanted are out of stock for months, even when I order early. From reading the other reviews here, it appears as though I'm not the only one with this experience. They're selection isn't as good as it once was, and their prices are too high for the size and quality of plant you get. I have found many of the plants they offer locally at lower prices with higher quality.

My first order with Logee's was a success! I purchased a set of the Lithops and a Split Rock for my mom's birthday. Both were smaller than I envisioned, but what did I expect? The website plainly stated that they would arrive in 2.5" pots. They are both very cute, and I believe I may have gotten a bonus Lithops! (The website picture shows a pot of 3, I received 4.) They are all so cute!! A real conversation piece, my mom is going to love them. I also bought one of their Ponderosa lemons in a 4" pot. It looks to be a nice, healthy cutting. It is a single stem, about 14" above pot. All plants arrived in good condition, especially since it has been in the mid 90's here. Everything was very well packaged, all the dirt and plants stayed securely in their pots. Also, shipping was very fast, only 2 days from Connecticut to Missouri. I wish they would have included a catalog with my order, I was looking forward to sharing it with my mom when I give her her gift. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase and will definitely keep them in mind for future purchases. Thanks Logee's!

I just want to add that my Ponderosa lemon cutting has done nothing but grow since I received it back in June. AND, it has put on all this new growth in consistent 100+ degree temperatures. Thank you Logee's for sending me a plant that not only has some history behind it, but also flourishes in my very novice hands. I feel like a proud mother all over again. :)

|I have bought many plants from Logee's over the years and rate it as consistently one of the best sources for house plants and tropical/subtropical ornamentals.
While visits to their greenhouses are especially enjoyable, I've had good experiences with mail order, experiencing problems with only one shipment (the two plants received in poor condition were promptly replaced after I e-mailed them). My most recent mail order, shipped during a brief hiatus in our unseasonably hot 2012 summer, arrived well-packed and in good shape.

I ordered 19 plants way back in early spring. I asked that they be held until May 21 for warm enough shipping weather. I'm in Canada, so I also ordered a phytosanitary certificate. May came and went. June came and went. No plants. They won't give me any explanation other than saying they have no idea when an inspector will come and that their hands are tied.
I wrote back to them, giving them the phone numbers of the 3 inspectors for their area. I also told them I found out that they are supposed to actually call one of them and make an appt. Instead of writing back with an appt day set up, all they said again was their hands were tied and they didn't know when an inspector will come.
It's past mid-summer now. I wish they would tell me what's really going on. Is it an uncontrolled pest problem? That would certainly prevent certification, but I have no idea if that is the situation. I can only guess.
I'm probably going to need to just cancel the order soon. Meanwhile, I have 19 pots, all labelled, each containing the best soil mix I could make after researching what each plant likes, and the pots are the correct size for each as well. I'm very disappointed and sad about this. I was looking forward to the plants very much. They were almost all ones with fragrant flowers.

After reading what MWplantman said about the viruses, I'm just going to cancel my order, right after posting this. I could handle it if the plants finally arrived (not that that's seeming likely anyways) with insects, but you can't fix plant virus diseases except with replacement using virus free (and hopefully resistant) plants. They can infect other plants as well sometimes. Maybe it's good that my order was so delayed.

I have ordered from Logee's for several years now and always been pleased. They have had several of my "holy grail" plants which I have been very happy with. While their catalogs have gotten a little stale, I still find plants I can't live without.
Opening the the box is like opening a present. The plants are healthy and well-grown (occasionally a little too large for their pots) and get rave reviews from my garden guests.
A couple plants have arrived damaged from the shipping process, but a quick call to Logee's has set things right.
I Look forward to making some additions to my collection soon.
One of my favorites!

I visited Logee's this past weekend and was very disappointed. Firstly, I was practically ignored then treated as a burden when seeking assistance from the staff. Also, their selection has gotten pitiful. I had only found 1 plant that appealed to me. But while searching for plants to add to my collection, I noticed that A LOT of their plants looked funky, with weird color patterning and distorted growth. This is typically a virus or some other disease. I had overheard a staff member talking about their virus problems. It is not worth risking adding it to my plants at home. So l left empty handed and will not be returning to nor purchasing more plants from Logee's. Such a disappointment.

Doing periodic testing, which is what we do at Logee’s, is the best way to detect viruses in an early stage. In the rare event that a virus is detected, the plants are immediately destroyed so the infection doesn’t spread. After 120 years in business, we take growing quality plants very seriously. We scout daily for diseases and insects and take necessary steps for pest control. Again, we appreciate your concern. We are sorry to lose you as a customer but we would rather have a customer who is happy and confident with our plants.

|Placed an order on 5/30/12 for 2 Sunshine Blueberries, Michelia figo and Abutilon 'voodoo', called on 6/8/12 to ask about status of order and was told it would ship on 6/11/12. My order arrived on 6/15/12 in excellent condition despite high heat in the east. I would have appreciated an E-mail as to when my order would ship, we have a pitbull and most carriers won't enter the yard, besides we have 95 degree weather from April to November in Brownsville Tx, and you can't leave boxes unprotected in the sun. The plants are all actively growing, despite a 103 degree heat wave. The plants were bought on sale, normally a bit pricey! I will be purchasing from them again. To all of you that say that you can get it locally cheaper and larger, use some common sense, if you are dumb enough to pay for shipping, then you don't have the right to complain. The point of mailorder nurseries is to buy plants you could never get locally.

This is the first time I ordered from this company. I ordered 1 Citrus "Sunquat" and 1 "Butterfly Gardenia." Although I was told it might take approx. 12 or so days to ship; the plants arrived much sooner. They were very well packaged, arrived in excellent condition, did not look like they traveled from Connecticut to Seattle. The gardenia had many buds and a couple of flowers. The sunquat was a bit small, but it will grow. Incredibly, they have such a huge selection of plants. I will definitely order from this company again and again.

Because of my first order was really good, I also ordered Grand Duke of Tuscany jasmine. I was very disappointed in this plant. This was the smallest plant I have ever seen, approx. 3" tall. I know I ordered the 2.5" pot, but I never expected a "dwarf" plant. Evidently the plants they are sending are getting smaller and smaller. Today I received the frost proof gardenia. I ordered the 4" pot, expecting to get a plant that should be a reasonable size. Well, was I wrong. They chopped this plant down to practically nothing. It was sent with a 17" stick, so I assume the plant may have been that size originally. They win, I will never order from them again.

I want to change my negative rating to positive. Logee's did replace the tiny plants with very nice ones and followed-up with a phone call to make sure I was happy with the replacement. Sorry for the delay in changing my rating. I ordered 2 more Butterfly Gardenias from them which I received a few days after ordering. I was not only very pleased with the prompt shipment but with the size and quality of the plants. Although I ordered the 2.5" pots, the plants were huge and arrived in beautiful condition and full of buds and flowers. Thus, I ordered another plant today and will order some more next year.

Through the years I ordered quite a few plants from Logee's. I cannot name them all since none of them survived. Some from bugs, some from "I don't know why." According to my friends I do have an amazing "green thumb," so that must not be the reason why they all died. I have not ordered from them for the past year or two. I just decided to buy all the plants I now have and which are in excellent health from local greenhouses. I saved a lot of money that way.

On May 14, 2012 I emailed Logee's to tell them directly that all the plant I ordered from them never survived. I never received any response, nor, frankly, I expected to receive any kind of acknowledgement. After I saw the many negative and neutral responses, I was not at all surprised. If anyone reads this comment, they will be better off purchasing plants from their local greenhouses. Believe me, it will be much cheaper and the plants will be much healthier. I definitely want to change my previous ratings to negative. I also asked them not to bother sending me anymore catalogs. The pictures are very deceiving!

My husband overheard me discussing Hoya Lauterbachii, so he ordered one as a surprise.
The hoya is absolutely beautiful. Its height is 22 1/2". I checked for hitchehikers, so far so good..none. Its velvety leaves are without mars. In fact they're perfect.
The only mistake Logee's made, they asked if the Hoya was a gift. He said yes. He was under the impression a gift card would be included, but the plant arrived without a card or any indication who the plant was from. My name was on the outer box, but I had no idea who sent a plant. 'for a minute I thought I had a secret admirer..lol'
The hoya was wrapped securely, well-packaged, and according to the time my husband ordered, quickly shipped.
If for some reason my husband reads this, "thanks, XOXO"

My husband placed a second order from Logees. He ordered Begonia FireFlush 'Curly', Anthurium, root-grown in Lava Rock and a Dragon Fruit, (Hylocereus.)
The Anthurium is very nice, loaded w/flowers. I only wish care instructions were included for plants grown in rock..especially when sent to cold, dry climate areas.
Because I have over 300 plants, my husband can't keep track. While browsing Logees site, he spotted the Dragon Fruit..in his mind, he envisioned a plant similar to the picture, even though the ad says it's potted in a 2.5" pot for 14.95. For one, I have this plant, purchased from another nursery, four times the size for 4.99.
Instead of sending Begonia Fire Flash 'Curly' they sent a standard B. Fire Flash.
I emailed Logees, asking if I could return the Dragon Fruit. They responded asking the reason, which I explained. Apparently they didn't want this tiny, and I mean small, plant back. Guess I'll write off the 14.95 plus shipping as a loss.
They sent a second Begonia, 'Fire Flash Curely' the plant that was ordered, but honestly, I see no difference between the first and second begonias. lol. I even posted both begonia pictures on a plant forum, and others agree. It looks nothing like the B. FireFlush 'Curly' posted on their site. Color or shape.
I'm leaving positive feedback because the plants I received, 'other than the Dragon Fruit' are large, healthy specimens.
The Dragon Fruit cost should be 2.99.
Last, I wish I knew if the second Begonia was a true B. Fireflush 'Curly', the plant my husband ordered....
If a Logees rep reads GWD feedback, and curious as to the looks of the Begonia I received, I'll be more than happy to send pictures..
As a matter of fact, I'm looking forward to it so I'd know if I got the correct Begonia..Toni
On June 28th, 2012, Toni05 changed the rating from positive to neutral and added the following:
From 1994 to 2000, I was a loyal Logee's customer. At that time, plants were shipped in 4" pots and 3 times the size they are now.
Because Logee's was one of a few out-of-state nurseries that sold rare plants, I ordered... 98% were gorgeous.
Around 2000-02, they started potting and shipping in 2.5" pots, plant size decreased, but cost and shipping increased.
I placed a a few more orders, including a citrus..What was sent was a 4" dead stick. It wasn't too expensive, so I figured $$ down the drain.
I then ordered an Acalypha. It was tiny and dead. Alcalypha was in a sorry state; this time I phoned. There were other plants I ordered from Logees..many dead. I won't say it's all Logee's fault. I take blame for some, but when a plant starts off with problems, the future doesn't look too good for greens.
Customer Service was pleasant, she agreed to ship another Acalypha. It arrived quickly and large.
My thought was, 'Why wasn't a healthy and good-sized plant sent in the first place?'
It was around 2000 I discovered online nurseries. I ordered from a few places, and couldn't believe the difference.
I felt bad, because I believe there should be more family-owned businesses, but when it comes to decent plants at reasonable prices...end results, I discontinued buying from Logee's.
Since I have 350-400 plants, my husband rarely buys me plants for fear I already have one.
He heard me talk about Aloe polyphyllia 'Spiral Aloe,' and decided to surprise me.
I knew he'd ordered, since he used my computer, lol, but I didn't mention it.
The aloe is nice-looking, fully-rooted, in a 4" pot, BUT, the cost w/shipping came out to 36.90. 11.95 for shipping one, 4" plant is ridiculous. The box could have held six plants.
Also, since it's been so hot, many nurseries are adding cooling pads, some @ 2.00, others free. No cooling pad was included.
Thankfully, my Aloe was okay, but time will tell.
If Logee's is reading this, I'm sorry, perhaps you are happy with the amount of customers you have, but numbers would increase if plants were larger AND shipping less expensive.
I decided not to leave Negative Feedback because the Aloe is nice, but not worth 36.90. I don't care if shipping is seperate from cost...the money comes out of our wallets.
PS: I order from numerous nurseries and Ebay sellers. For .25 the cost of the Aloe, many send cuttings or bonus plants. Thought I'd mention it in passing..... Toni

|First, let me say I e-mailed Logee's privately about my disappointment in the gift plants they sent, and received no response whatsoever. This in itself speaks volumes.
I keep a Wish List of plants so that my kids never are lacking for ideas when it comes to holiday and birthday gifts. Last Christmas, they sent me two of my 'top of the list' plants as gifts. I had sent links for the two types of Phaius orchids offered on Logee's site. On the description pages in two places, they say that the plants they send are "blooming size" although not necessarily in bud. They were $24.95 each plus shipping. I was expecting big plants that would bloom this spring.
What I received were two tiny starts with the longest leaf on either of them not over 7in. Now, Phaius of blooming size are big - they have leaves 2ft. long, give or take. So these plants are at least a year, and more likely two years away from "blooming size". This is not only false advertising it is an outrageous rip-off.
Don't buy anything from Logee's unless you absolutely can't get it anywhere else!

We apologize for your disappointment. We've looked over our records and cannot find any emails regarding phaius gifts. Please respond to our D-mail so that we can correct this for you.
As soon as we saw this posting we looked at the plants in stock and we agree that they are definitely too small. Unfortunately as living items, plants are difficult to review for quality and change every year. The Phaius the first few years we offered them were much larger. Over the last year or so, and through changes of personnel, we obviously missed the change in size of the plants and just kept using the same advertising that we originally had. We immediately removed the "blooming size" note and are pulling the smaller ones out of stock. We are also discussing how we should handle the next crop.
Thank you for bringing this issue to our notice as we missed it. And, again, please contact us directly.
Sincerely, Logee's Customer Service

The new leaves on the Jaboticaba have died back, but otherwise it looks to be in good condition as well. The tree itself was much larger than I was expecting. All trees are under a grow light. I'll update later when/if they stabilize and start growing again.

|I've ordered two exotic plants from Logee's, and must say I'm a very satisfied customer. The first was a Murraya Paniculata, which arrived in excellent condition. It was very well packaged, with a number of precautions taken to ensure safe delivery (which I appreciate, given that it was shipped across the country to CA). It's been a few weeks and it's nearly doubled in size and remains very healthy.
However, I thought my relationship with Logee's might have been over after the arrival of my second purchase, an Osmanthus Sweet Olive. Although similarly packaged with care, the plant looked like it had undergone some stress prior to shipping. In particular, six of its twelve leaves has been snipped in half with some scissors (to hide browning tips, some of which were still visible). Hopefully the plant will survive, but I was disappointed to receive a battered (i.e. unattractive) specimen that may already be on its way out (especially because it's a gift and was a little pricey).
So, displeased, I decided to see just how much Logee's "100% Satisfaction Guarantee" was worth. To my delight, quite a bit it would seem. My call was quickly answered by a live person who was friendly, articulate, and helpful (no automated labyrinths, no overseas call-takers. [if only dealing with AT&T was so simple!]). I wasn't given the run-around or required to jump through any hoops; instead, I was given the option to receive a full refund or store credit to put toward a future purchase. (It's my understanding that had there been another Sweet Olive of the desired variety in stock, I would have had a third option to request a replacement plant). So, I opted for store credit (after-all, I still need that gift!).
I'm sure they're better bargains out there, but I must admit, I now have a place for Logee's in my heart. Excellent variety, informative/user-friendly website, and genuine customer service. Hard to ask for more than that.

On Jul 13, 2012 4:22 PM, Logee's Greenhouses, Ltd. responded with:
Unfortunately shipping plants outside the US is cumbersome and has become more and more so every year. In addition to the high cost of trying to get live plants to through customs, there is also a significant amount of paperwork and every plant must be inspected by the department of agriculture. We used to ship to many other countries but have done fewer each year as the regulation became more stringent. Because of that our FAQ page explained that shipping to Canada required a minimum order of $200 merchandise with a 60% charge for shipping ($120 minimum) as well as a fee for the Phytosanitary inspection. Unfortunately, we have just recently ceased taking orders for even Canada.

|i placed a huge order way back when, probably 12 yrs. or so ago and was disgusted with the tiny plants and high shipping. most died the first year although that could have been my fault as i was fairly new to gardening.
it was with trepidation that i ordered three Clivia (on sale) a couple months back. the price was too good to pass up on a plant i've wanted for a very long time.
i gave them a preferred ship date and they arrived exactly on schedule, today in fact. the plants are all beautiful and healthy, big root systems and tall green leaves. yes, the shipping is still up there (shipping is high everywhere) but it was well worth it.
i'm a happy camper.

I made 2 different orders on 2/22/2012 with Logee's. Having heard nothing, 13 days later I had to email them to check on the status on 3/6/12. The first order was delivered to me 3/7/12 in good condition with very fine plants. The other Order # 14587868, for my niece, was back ordered because of an outage of Citrus Medica Turunji. I was informed by email that as soon as it was back in stock the 2 trees would ship together as a full order. My niece was quite disappointed when the package arrived with NO CITRUS MEDICA TURUNJI after I informed her that Logee's email said it would ship as a complete order. There was NO explanation in the package or in my mailed invoice to explain the contradiction in shipping and the promises in the email. When I ordered the tree online it was IN STOCK. I find communication at Logee's to be woefully lacking, their promises empty and an absence of commitment to stock online orders by following through with their own emails.
Your order is in Back Order status due to the Citrus Turunji. Our growers are letting us know that this item should be available shortly. As soon as they release this item suitable for shipment we will get your order shipped right out to you.

I informed them I was happy to wait for the whole shipment and was not informed that they were only going to ship out 1/2 of my order in contradiction to their email.

|I've placed two recent (November and December) orders with Logee's and am very pleased with the plants I received. Out of nine total, seven of them were larger than I expected - much larger, in a couple of cases - and two were the anticipated size. All of them were healthy and well-packed. Both the orange jasmine and the euphorbia millli 'Red Jillian' bloomed within two weeks of arriving, and the jewel orchid is starting a bloom spike. I also appreciated the care sheets that were included. One plant was a species I've never tried to grow before, and the sheet was much more detailed than any of my houseplant books.
Overall, I'm very satisfied and I will order from them again as soon as it gets warm enough to ship.

I would like to say thank you to Logee's for taking care of the Michelia Alba problem. I left them a phone message and had given up on getting any resolution out of it.My Michelia costing $50 was sent with scales on it! But few weeks later another Michelia arrived in the mail all for free. They sent me another $50 plant all for free.That is surely commendable. However, i would stilll like to reinforce the presence of the rude lady on the phone who i talked to again a week before and she hung up in a hurry while i was in mid sentence asking about guess what??(another order ofcourse!)So, will i order again, ofcourse i will, but i do think Logee's needs to address the rude lady on the phone problem.Also, they discontinued a plant which i had ordered already but showed available on the website and nobody communicated with me about that.I was waiting for the plant and when i called,was told it has been discontinued.(Jui molle).Also i have noticed that in orders with many number of plants, to fit all plants in a single box, they ship smaller sizes,but if you order one or two plants they arrive in decent sizes.

|I registered for a class this coming Saturday at Logee's Open House Weekend, and plan to drive 1 hour each way to attend. I called today to ask them if I could buy (credit card) several plants at the email sale price of several dollars off each plant, good thru tomorrow, and pick them up when I come up in 5 days. I was told I could not- that I would have to drive there by tomorrow (I work, and there was a major storm this past weekend)-or pay to have the plants shipped!. I feel that Logees is a great resource, and I have been spending considerable money there for 30 years. However, I feel there is a decided overpricing on many items, and a general attitude of superiority that I don't find appealing.

We are truly sorry to have disappointed you. We will certainly honor the email prices for you when you are here this weekend.
We did establish a policy a few years ago of not taking orders over the phone for a pickup in our retail store. The reason that we did so was that many customers, about half in fact, never came to pick up their plants. It is painful for us every time that we receive a phone call for that request, but we found that we were spending a significant amount of time gathering and putting away plants as well as placing several phone calls to customers that never came. I know that it doesn't seem like much time, but that extra time spent actually does increase our costs and we are honestly trying to be as efficient as we can.
We do understand that by having this policy we are not providing a service that some customers have requested. In this case, as usually occurs, the customer service representative that took your call contacted me the same day to ask if we could revisit the policy again. We will be discussing this week how we might be able to structure it so that we take care of customers and are efficient as well. One option we have discussed is a restocking fee. As a customer, what would you think of a restocking fee that we charge for customers that do not pick up their order? What amount do you think would be reasonable?

|I have been a loyal customer of Logees spending close to $500 this year.I ordered a very expensive Michelia Alba. It arrived with scales on it.Some of the leaves are eaten away and it seems that logees has sprinkled some of their bug fighting powder on it. Spending $50 for a plant and getting this is not my idea of loyalty any more with Logees. The last time i ordered a plant arrived totally broken from the very bottom. ON calling customer service a very rude woman told me to watch it for couple of weeks and call back then.I respect the policy but absolutely not being disrespected by some rude woman.THis same lady has been rude to me before when i called about a price difference in a plant listed on the website and in their catalog.She did not respect my request for selling me the plant at the lesser price listed on the website since the catalogue had a published price,instead in front of my watching the website price changed to match the catalogue price as she talked to me on the phone.She said it was company policy!!! So much for not learning my lesson and ordering again plants worth $100 from Logees. I hope they read this and think it worth to resolve the issue since i do not wish to call and talk to that same rude lady again only to be disrespected again after spending so much money!!!!

When I called their customer service, the lady I talked to was rude and very short on the phone. I hung up and called back, this time to talk to a gentleman that was much nicer. He informed me that my plant was on the way. I recieved it mid may, and planted it. The box was beat up and bent, but the plant looked healthy. The plant lived for just over 30 days then died dried up and died abruptly. It never produced a leaf or grew an inch. Called customer service again and was told by obviously the same woman that I talked to the first time that 30 days was past,no refund, no replacement, just tough luck. Better luck next time.

I have been a loyal customer of Logee's for some time and in the earlier years have not had to request a replacement, so things have been fine. However, I recently received an order where some of the plants were dormant and it was difficult to recognize that there was a root problem with one particular plant. 6 weeks later, it was my opinion that the plant (Strongylodon macrobotrys - Jade Vine) should have shown signs of growth and it had not, so I contacted them to explain the issue and request a replacement, if necessary. I received the same response, since I was 2 weeks past the 30 day limit for reporting failures on the Feb. 12th order, they were not going to replace the Jade Vine on April 1st. I had just received an order I placed earlier in April on the same day that I was requesting the replacement on the previous order, or else I would have cancelled it, too. I spend between $200-$500 with them each year. I responded requesting to speak with someone of authority and am waiting to see if they will respond. I find it difficult to believe that a reputable nursery would allow only 30 days for dormant or otherwise questionable sized plants to grow or acclimate. But, I have noticed a decline in the customer support and quality of orders when they are shipped (plants don't stand up in the pot on their own, they look like they are stuffed into a different pot before being shipped, leaves and tops of plants are broken off when received due to poor packing or handling, etc.). I never said anything before because the plants were usually of good size and recovered from bangs and bruises. Logees was also the only one to carry some of the harder to find plants, but I will no longer give my hard earned money or recommend anyone to a company that sends sub-par plants and then refuses to stand behind what they sell, regardless of their policy. I do not know many companies that only offer 30 days guarantee. Even Michigan Bulb gives a lifetime guarantee and most reputable companies will replace plants the 1st year/ growing season. Still waiting to hear back from them, but from my place in this recent transaction with them, all I can say is... Beware!

After a week of being so mad I could bite nails, Ashley eventually contacted me and agreed to replace everything that I had problems with. She was very cordial and kindly explained that they are a small company and cannot give the same guarantee that larger corporations are able to give on their plants. Instead, they put more effort into insuring that the plants that go out are all healthy, of good size, and are packed well before leaving in hopes that this would avoid too many replacements past the first 30 days that a customer has the plant. I asked that they also give consideration for plants that are dormant and that these plants receive an extra guarantee above the usual 30 days. Not just to look at the calendar and immediately say "NO" whenever someone contacts them to ask for a replacement 2 weeks past the 30-day window. Since they did eventually replace everything, we are on good terms again. I just wish I didn't have to go through the heartache and trouble I did to get what should have been offered to me in the beginning without question. Many people wouldn't have bothered to post comments here in order to get further noticed after initially being turned down by their customer support department, and probably just wouldn't darkened their door again. This is what I would have done had they not noticed my posting here. What I found is that these are really nice people who are just trying their best to run a successful business. So, I retract my negative comments and give them a neutral pending the arrival of my replacements and a more positive and consistent initial attitude with the customer.

I have quit buying from Logees. As an accomplished gardener of over 40 years, my house and garden are full of plants as much as 25 years old. However, over 4 years of dealing with Logees, nothing I have purchased from them typically survives for more than a year. I've spent well over $1500.00 with them to date and I have maybe 5 plants still living. Many of the plants I've received have had very small root systems. I've complained to them about their deceptive pot sizes, whereby some plants are being grown in 1 inch starter plugs and then transferred to 2.5" or 3" containers and being sold as a larger potted plant without sufficient grow time in the new container. When you go to plant it, the dirt falls away and you have a plant in a 1 inch plug again with no roots reaching outside of the 1" plug area. In other cases, the plants just seem to be too immature to be out of the nursery environment and they never really recover from the shock of transport. I honestly think Byron is the nicest man and his main help, Ashley, could not be sweeter and more understanding. They've sent replacements in the past when I have complained. But, their plants haven't survived while those that I purchased from other nurseries have flourished. One example, I purchased (7) Hibiscus from Logees, and at the same time, I purchased (3) Hibiscus from Home Depot (The Home Depot were in slightly larger 4" pots and half the price). The main difference was the Home Depot plants had 4 times the root system. Needless to say, ALL of the Logees Hibiscus are dead now while the Home Depot Hibiscus have grown 3 times their size over the same year. I baby them, coddle them, but the Logees plants just don't respond. Finally, a Black Olive tree (12" tall) I purchased arrived in bad shape and it didn't last, but I was so disgusted that I finally quit calling them. They typically don't replace anything after 30 days without a lot of begging and unpleasantness. I could go on and on with the money that I feel I have wasted for what I received, and I suspect there are others out there having the same issues who are not speaking up and who are also no longer ordering from them.

The 30 day guarantee is meant to ensure that you receive healthy, growing plants. In most cases a month is enough time to ensure that the plant indeed arrived in good condition. I certainly agree that this is diffcult to carry over to plants that are sent in a dormant state. We always want all of our customers to be happy with their plants and their experience with Logee's.

I have ordered from Logees for about 5 years. Unfortunately none of my lemon/lime trees have survived thus far. I'm sure due to my own fault. I currently have a vanilla vine that was replaced because the first one came in broken. I also have a very small persian lime tree that has not grown since I've had it (about 2 months I think) but continue to have high hopes for. Logees has very good customer service and people there that are available to help you with plants questions because of that I would not hesitate to try yet another tree from them.

The Persian Lime Tree mentioned in the post above died about a month later. I was gifted new meyer lemon and a satsuma orange tree in August of 2009. They are still alive and doing well. Now I know for sure the previous trees (blood orange, meyer lemon, ponderosa lemon, orange) recieved that always died within months was NOT due to my own fault. I am an experienced gardener and thought I was doing everything wrong for my citrus but I think the age of the trees are maybe too young to ship and they never get over the shock. Regardless, unless they improve their plants, I doubt I'll be using them again. I don't want to feel like I dupped anyone into buying from Logees based on my review so I had to come back and express my view. The customer service was still good which is why I am changing this to a neutral and not a negative.
