I wrote a simple email asking for some suggestions about planting Lily of the Valley in San Francisco. There are many differing opinions on line and being that this company was on the Watchlist, assumed they would at least have something to add.

I received a very smart ass answer from the nursery, something along the lines of "what suggestions? You plant, they grow". Then he proceeded to say he could not ship to California. Ugh, I despise a smart ass gardener.
Company representative comment on January 25, 2015:
On Jan 25, 2015 1:36 PM, Classy Groundcovers responded with:

As we said, we do not ship to CA. There is no way for us to advise you about the specifics of using a plant in an area that we do not ship it to, we have no experience with how it grows there. I apologize if you feel that we phrased our response improperly, it was not at all clear what advice you sought.

This is my first order with Classy Ground Covers and I have been ordering plants online for many years. I cannot begin to compare this experience because other companies cannot compare to the Service, Speed, Condition of plants, Size and health of plants that arrived at my door yesterday! The website is AWESOME and each offering is lovingly described as to what makes it happy and how to best succeed with the new additions. The communication from the moment I placed the order to 5 days later when they arrived was beyond anything I've experienced before. I opened the box to find the bushy, green, HEALTHY plantlings - super moist and surrounded in wet newspaper to keep them so. I am so excited to see what next Spring brings to this neglected area of my yard... SnowCone Candy Tuft was recommended as a plant for this specific area and I have to say - it may be hard to ignore these lovely little plants! I have all 24 plants in the ground and not a one in the bunch looked peaked or suffering! I am pending the in-stock notification for the Elfin Thyme I want to get- and can only say - Classy Ground Covers has a new life time customer!

Beautiful healthy plants! I've been using this company several years now and I've never been disappointed. Their plants are healthy and vigorous, never root bound. Customer service is quick and helpful, the plants arrive on time and ready to grow!

I\\\'ve ordered multiple times from this company and only had one problem before. They sent the wrong order, which they fixed promptly. Today I tried to use one of their discounts which they email ed to me. I placed the order but got no discount. I called I wrote emails. I did this again and again. No one picks up the phone no one responds to emails. They are open to take my order but not to give any feed back. I received the email come on this week so I know they are in business, and I expect to get a response. I\\\'m sure they\\\'ll fix this eventually, but I\\\'m already over invested in time trying to contact them. If your open for business be responsive. Very irksome IMO
On September 4th, 2014, Memphis_Aggie changed the rating from negative to neutral and added the following:

They fixed it. I admit I was impatient but the multiple unanswered phone calls in the middle of a business day definitely set my teeth on edge. Better not to have a phone number if you never answer it or can\'t cover it. I\'ll reset to neutral: it was too hard to reach them to get a positive. Like their stuff and their prices BTW. I will likely order from them again.
On September 5th, 2014, Memphis_Aggie changed the rating from neutral to positive and added the following:

I was looking at the mass plantings in my garden yesterday and recalling how inexpensive they were to put together and how happy I've been with the results. Classy Groundcovers was crucial part of that. So what if they don't have the slickest website or fastest phone call returns; that's not what really matters. In fact it may pat of the reason they are so reasonably priced. So I'm changing my comment to positive, the company should suffer just because I was irritable.

I needed many plants this year, ordered from Totally Tomato, Bluestone perennials, NH hostas, American Meadows, Classy Groundcovers, & Dans Dahlias. I will comment on each site as the orders come in.
I ordered 24 phlox from Classy Groundcovers and it came well packed with moist newspaper, pots appeared moist and plants were good color.
it took 4 days shipping but didnt seem to be a problem.
i would use again, but can only buy in bulk.

I ordered 24 pots of a vinca variety and they arrived well-packed and very healthy. Communication during shipment was great, I always knew where the plants were and when they would be at my door. The plants themselves are lovely, larger than I'd hoped for and fresh and green. Ordering plants sight-unseen via the internet can be frustrating so I really appreciate the superlative experience I had with your fine company.

Placed my very first order with CG several weeks ago & was so impressed with the quality of Liriope I received that I placed another order for more of same variety Liriope + 24 potted Heuchera plants yesterday. Very happy that my 2nd order was also promptly processed & I received a shipping notice 1 day after I placed this order, too. That's awesome service & I'm sure I won't be disappointed when I receive my 2nd order :)

I love this company. I've order many ground covers over the years from them, and the plants always show up in great condition. I often receive extra bare root plants in the order. I had one complaint once re: lack of description of the one-gallon plants - they are shipped without soil and I thought this was mis-leading and should have been more prominently displayed on the website. When I called, they immediately updated their website, so their customer service folks are awesome! Very good prices - I have not seen any of their competitors beat them. Highly recommended!

I received 50 hosta halcyon and 25 royal standard bareroot plants. It's my first order from them and the delivery and care of the plants was exceptional. Some of the plants were so large that I was able to split them. The temperature here in Oxon Hill, MD. was to drop from 80 degrees down into the 40's that night with cool temps for about a week, so I called to ask what they recommended as far as to plant or hold, the gentleman stated that either way would be o.k. just keep the plants moist in a cool location if i was going to hold. So I planted all the plants that same evening and the plants are looking good on day 3.

I will definitely recommend and will order from CG again.

I would highly recommend buying from Classy Groundcovers, especially when you need to buy in multiples or in bulk. I bought 25 bareroot Hosta 'Royal Standard'; they were shipped very quickly and at the exact time I specified. When they arrived they were packaged very nicely, and the hostas' I received were very large two eyed divisions, some with three or four eyes, with large root systems. I can't wait to see their progression this summer! Again I would highly recommend Classy Groundcovers, and will definitely be buying from them again!

I just received 54 mondo grass plants from CG. It's my first experience ordering from them and I am extremely pleased. The plants are very large and extremely healthy. They were delivered on time and I received both shipping and delivery notices by email.

If a "VERY, VERY POSITIVE" rating were available, I'd give it to CG! I have a list of additional plants to order from them, as soon as the spring weather arrives.

Received two orders from Classy Groundcovers this month and both arrived without a hitch. All plants were healthy and well rooted, the packing was very secure, the media moist, and they arrived very quickly after ordering. I was notified upon shipment and so was able to have the holes dug and everything ready when the plants arrived.
I have no doubt I will be ordering from them again in the future.

Another year and more plants from Classy Groundcovers!
It's a no brainer- need a lot of small plants?
This is the place!
No muss, no fuss- just choose a variety and a quantity and that's it. A few days later you will have your plants as healthy and happy as can be.
I sincerely wish that ALL online plant vendors were half as focused on providing this level of service. LOVE that shipping is included- it makes staying in budget easy.

I purchased Royal Purple Liriope from Classy Groundcovers this week. Every plant was in perfect condition, and much care was obviously taken in packing them for shipment. I am an avid gardener and have purchased plants online and before that from catalogues for many years, and no one has ever compared with the quality of plants, the packaging, and the quick shipping of Classy Groundcovers. The plants were also far superior to the ones I looked at last week at several local nurseries. Classy Groundcovers has met and exceeded my expectations.

First, there's the decision about what to order. I had already spent a lot of time learning elsewhere about the plants I might order. So, I knew that Classy Groundcovers' descriptions were clear, detailed and inclusive about the plant and about their process. This gives you confidence. Then, you've ordered, and have a question: They were extremely attentive to my email(s). Plants arrived as they said they would, beautifully packed. All was first class - - in fact, classy!

First time ordering from Classy Groundcovers. Wasn't sure what to expect, and was a little nervous to spend almost $400 for 4 flats of plants.

SO glad I went with CG! They weren't the cheapest online nursery, but after reading reviews about "sticks" and "rootballs" from other growers, and all the positive "full plant" reviews from CG, it was definitely worth the money. CG was still cheaper than any local nursery or Big Box hardware store around here.

All of my plants (3 varities) were in 3" pots, with well developed roots, healthy leaves & stems, & packaged very securely. There were even 2 extra plants stuck in!

Delivery was quick & I knew exactly when they would arrive by the tracking information provided.

The plants took less than a week to arrive, and have been in the ground for 3 weeks now. They are thriving and I couldn't be happier.

A box arrived today with a complimentary hat & spade. Nice surprise!

I will definitely return to CG for my plant orders. Reasonable prices, very healthy plants, free shipping, & a guarantee. Can't beat that.

Also, if you Google "Classy Groundcovers Coupon Code" you can find the current discount codes to apply to your order. I saved about $70 on my order using a code!

The plants we ordered from Classy Groundcovers are all coming back into bloom and are beautiful! Our sedums were completely taken out by a hail storm last summer, but the roots were apparently so healthy that they have almost all come back this spring! And our ice plants are AMAZING this spring.

We ordered 1000 vinca minor plants after seeing that this was a watchdog top 30 company on Dave's Garden. We were looking to fill in a part shade area with an alternative to grass. The price was very reasonable. They notified us when they would be shipped and they arrived the next day in excellent condition with adequate moisture. We just planted them last weekend so don't know the long term result, but so far they all look good! Would definitely recommend this company if you are looking for good quality groundcovers.

I am very much impressed. The Web site was well laid out and easy to use, the ordering experience was painless, and the plants are excellent. Well grown, healthy looking plants, packed into a sturdy box with simple but effective newspaper as packaging. This company is quick, too. To top it off, they had multiple options for payment, including payment by mail after placing the order. (unusual, in my experience for an "Internet orders only" company, but very welcome.) If I ever need to fill a large space with groundcovers again, I know where I'll be going...

Best mail order experience of my life. I ordered on Tuesday and received my package on Friday (free shipping). The bare root plants were in moist packing ... absolutely no wilting or yellowed leaves. The plants have healthy thick roots. They are even larger clumps than the pictures on the web-site. I am very impressed and recommend them for your next ground cover order. Great experience all around.
