  Company Comment, posted on March 19, 2009:  
Brushwood Nursery grows over 400 different vines and climbers including many native species. We offer an amazing number of clematis along with an assortment of passion flowers, climbing roses, jasmines, honeysuckles and many other vines.
In some ways Brushwood is an old fashioned nursery, actually propagating and growing plants ourselves. This allows us to offer rare vines and to keep a high standard of quality.
In other ways we are very "high tech" using the latest in e-commerce web security, automated greenhouse equipment and organic growing techniques.
For the last ten years, we've been proud to ship high quality vines all across the country and look forward to serving you in our next ten years!

Received multiple plants from Dan at Brushwood: clematis, jasmine and a rose. All arrived very well; great packing as well as communication in re of the shipping times and tracking. The plants were very healthy and strong root growth were exhibited. Would definitely order from Brushwood again.

First thing, love the selection especially rare japanese variety that are hard to find. Plants arrived safely, healthy and quick developing after I potted them. Great communication, notify me when plants are shipped. Definitely on my list for future purchase. Recommended!
On March 14th, 2014, bluebuster77 changed the rating from positive to neutral and added the following:

I'm still not sure my real rating on this nursery. Selection are awesome as I mentioned previously. Packaging/shipping excellent. Communication great. Prices are ok. Size of plants not so much impress. Max 2" sprout in quart size pot. Not very looking great but for sure I will make these grow. Which means I add more effort on what I paid for. Not trying to make clematis garden, just collecting few rare variety sometimes. So I wouldn't worry or bad feeling on what I received.
On March 28th, 2014, bluebuster77 changed the rating from neutral to positive and added the following:

I have only two years experienced of clematis, so needs to learn more about trick of clematis. As soon as sun shine and warmer weather arrived, that 2" sprouts reaching 1' now. I needs bigger space! Thanks for the feedback
Company representative comment on March 14, 2014:
On Mar 14, 2014 7:06 AM, Brushwood Nursery responded with:

Thank you for coming back to Brushwood! I have reviewed your orders. Please note that you've ordered and received your plants each year just as the shipping season has opened. All of our clematis are cut back hard over winter. Each variety will be different in its response time to spring but all will be very short at the beginning of the season. Many will sprout only from the buds under the soil surface.
If you had requested and received your orders just a few weeks later, the stems might be up to the top of the stakes or possibly beyond or might even have had their first spring trim. In the past 2 weeks many varieties have gone from tiny stubs to nearly 2 feet of growth while others are just waking up. They're each a little different.
I'm glad you appreciate our service and selection of clematis and hope your plants thrive under your care!

I have ordered from Brushwood ( three times in the past, and I have always received very high-quality clematis and climbing roses. The plants are doing very well in my flower bed as well as containers. The plants are sizeable and arrive healthy. I was so pleased with the quality of the past orders, I just submitted an order for more clematis and climbing roses. I am looking forward to receiving these.

I have purchased several clematis vines from this company and I would never go any where else! This is a high quality operation with very reasonable prices and excellent service. This morning UPS delivered three of the most healthy and strong looking vines that anyone could ever wish to receive.. I purchased a montana Rubens for my pergola, a Jackmanii for my front porch and an Anita for my back fence. Last fall I purchased a yellow Clematis Tangutica which wintered perfectly and is beginning to take off and is finding its way up my back steps archway. I could not be more pleased. I highly recommend Brushwood Nursery

Outstanding communication, selection and web site design. Shipping was $10.75 US Priority mail for two plants. The packing and quality of the two clematis was top-rate, and the speed of delivery was, too!
My plants are very nice and well worth their cost.
I will always go to Brushwood for my clematis now.

I went a little crazy this winter with mail-ordering! I was tired of the tried and true clematis selections of the nurseries in the state of Conn. I went, and I have to say I was exceptionally pleased with my experience at Brushwood. Easy to use site, reasonable prices and shipping charges(although is there ever a good shipping charge?). The orders, there were two, made months apart, arrived the same day in awesome shape, really large root systems, green lush healthy foliage, much larger than the small pots that some other mail-order companies ship. There was great communication from the company, including tracking info. I would give this company the highest rating.

1st time ordering from Brushwood and thrilled with plants. They arrived promptly and were packed well. They had to wait a week for me to decide exactly where to place them and dig through the clay, amend soil and such but they're looking very pleased - pinched back a tad but recovered perfectly with much growth already. Great communication, prices & plants! Highly recommend :-)

Ordered three clematis from Brushwood--Niobe and 2 Josephines. Josephine was the weekly sale, so the price was great. I am happy with everything about this order. The vines are a nice size. They arrived well-packed in good condition, ready to take off. They've been here about a week and all three have grown about 8 inches already.

Exceptional Company! I purchased a Zephirine Drouhin Rose and it is just beautiful. It was packaged so well, it just amazed me that a company actually cares about how their pants arrive.

It is ready to plant and, I believe this company works for and deserves it's high ratings. I will order more later on and I will recommend them to everyone I know.

One last thing, I scheduled delivery when I placed the order and they in fact shipped on time, and it was received right away. No worries if you order!

WOW. Jasmine Fiona's Sunrise and clematis Kiri Te Kenawa arrived exceptionally packaged and staked, with intact, moist root balls and vigorous new growth. What a contrast to the spindly, dried-out, sickly twigs I received from other online companies. Greenwood Nursery is my new standard.

This is my third order from Brushwood. which recently moved to Georgia from Pennsylvania. Dan did not miss a beat in the move and on very short notice provided me with top quality clematis... perhaps the best I have ever received! The packing is impeccable and the size of the plants very generous. Dan's response time would be nearly impossible to beat. I am not sure whether he is in your top 30, but he certainly should be!
Looking for a good variety of top quality vines with the very best service? This is the place! Look no further

It is late March here and I recently received my fourth order from this wonderful nursery. It was the same exceptional service with the best clematis ever.... the came with buds, are growing like weeds, and are already blooming. They simply cannot be beat and deserve their place in the top 30...

The move to Georgia certainly did not hurt... our newest arrivals are of the same top quality and in six weeks time are in full bloom. Looking for clematis? The quality and varieties offered by Brushwood are the very best for their very reasonable prices.

i ordered two jasmine vine plants from Brushwood Nursery

these guys are Way over in GA so that's a very long Way to ship live plants.

i had my plants shipped a little early becaue they are going to be raised in my living wall indoors

i received the two Jasmine plants today Feb 16 and they were is better then perfect condition.

bright green and the vines were actually still sprouting side shoots.

they were potted in high quality pots.

the boxes they use are of the best quality and if you ever ordered plants you know the shipping box is the key in shipping.

they did a great job in packaging them and i would highly recommend every one to order from Brushwood Nursery.

they sell high quality U.S.D OF AG INSPECTED plants and know their business when it comes to shipping them.

great job Brushwood Nursery.

I recently purchased a red trumpet vine from Brushwood. This is a wonderful nursery. This was my first purchase from them. The plant was shipped very quickly and when I had requested it. It arrived Priority Mail. The plant is extremely healthy and a nice large size about 14 inches tall. They charge only $10 shipping for either one or 100 plants. The plant was carefully packed. They let me know when it was shipped via email. I am very happy.

I do NOT have the green thumb in the family. I've wanted roses for a long time, but can never get bare roots to grow. I ordered from Brushwood as a last ditch effort before conceding that roses aren't for me, really.
My order arrived as scheduled, two happy-looking, 12" plants. I planted the Zephirine Drouhin Roses in a part sun spot in my yard in early June, and they are doing great!!! Two months later they are over 3 feet tall and have tons of new growth.
Customer service at Brushwood was prompt and helpful in that someone answered a question I had about planting them very quickly by email.
If these rose vines continue to be this happy, I might finally have to learn how to prune! :-)

Healthy mid-sized plants (mostly clematis) that have grown well for me, blooming in their second year. Excellent selection, excellent packaging and an astonishingly low shipping cost. When the shipping, quantity discount, and a coupon were added, these robust plants were cost comparable with much smaller plants from other suppliers, but far better plants. I have ordered from Brushwood twice and will not hesitate to order from them again.
