I've ordered blueberry plants from this company since 1995.
I recently moved again and had to start over, so I ordered the 24 trial pack. I picked 4 ea. of 6 varieties. I ordered them in the fall of the previous year and paid for them, with Spring delivery. They arrived exactly when they said they would, in good condition. All survived the year.
The only issue I've ever had with this company is that they are usually not going to ship the newest varieties, they're always out. Also, I recently tried to order 3 Auroras for Fall delivery and they would only ship at least 6. That annoyed me and I found another Michigan nursery who was glad to ship me 3.
Not good for business....
Being new to blueberries, I appreciated the email replies to questions we had - fast and courteous. We picked up the plants on site. Interesting to see the operation. Everyone very friendly and enthusiastic. The plants looked beautiful and 2 weeks in the ground are doing very well. We bought the "6 pack" that was localized for our area. Helpful! - early, mid-season and late-bearing varieties.
I ordered six blueberry plants from DeGrandchamp's in the spring of 2008. I told them that I specifically wanted no substitutions, and that I wanted the Patriot. I was alerted by this site that they MIGHT make substitutions, so I was very specific. I also bought some blueberry plants locally. When my plants came from DeGrandchamp's they arrived quickly. I expected a smaller, bare-root plant, but this was beyond my expectations. They arrived in a large box, well packed, and in great shape. They arrived so quickly, in fact, that I did not have my bed ready. While I was wondering what to do, I read the enclosed information, and found instructions that said I could plant them in a temporary location, but that I should get them in the ground quickly. This information was VERY helpful, and that's exactly what I did. The plants were much larger than I expected. There was one slight adjustment, and that was they sent me TWO Patriot plants that were smaller than the others, instead of the one I ordered. This was a very customer friendly way for them to handle the fact that they didn't have one larger one, in my opinion. When I eventually put them in their permanent home, all of the plants were thriving. By fall two of their blueberry plants were larger than even my locally purchased 5-gallon plants. Wow. I would buy from them again and would recommend them to anyone. A+
